The issues with the '14 are being addressed. You may have a clogged DEF and failed Catalytic converter at ~20k miles. There is a TSB flash for the ECU that addresses these issues and a new replacement Cat design. The 15's are also getting the new Cat.Should I hold of on a purchase of a '14 and get a '15? Some dealers are discounting 14's for almost 8k.
I was curious and went to Jeep.com and 'built one'- it showed one in stock 229 miles from me but - 'a bunch in transit' so looks like either the motors were being diverted for RAM pickups - or they were making sure 'everything is up to snuff' this time!Another perspective: we ordered a 2015 JGC with the ED and OAP II 8.5 weeks ago. Ship date on factory status sheet was 11/20. It just move to framing status in the factory within the last couple of days. We ordered the diesel because the full drivetrain changes associated with the OAP II weren't available on vehicles with the V6/VVT. (They drop the rear limited-slip differential and the select drive.) The hemi was just too much of a fuel guzzler to make that leap. I'm hoping now that we didn't jump off the cliff with all of the reported problems with the '14 diesels.
The reason for the delay, by the way, was poorly communicated to the dealership. I would have felt much better had I known that I wasn't being ignored.
