I just had a customer yesterday that wanted to factory order a Renegade since she wanted the MySky - Sadly to my and her dismay I was informed that they're not taking or allowing any sort of Factory order since they're being built overseas. They claim due to the uncertainty of what's going to be more popular, they're going to build them and give the dealers the ability to pick from what has already been built. If they were made in the US like the other Jeeps, we'd have the ability to Factory order all day long. The Renegades and the ProMaster City are the only 2 models that do not have the same ordering system compared to the rest of the products.
They're hoping to move over to a building system similar to Hyundai and Kia (one vehicle with 2-3 "packages" to choose from). I can't factory order anything from Kia, either. They give us a list of what's built and available for allocation at port. From there we put in what we'd like and most of the time we get our picks.Originally they allowed us to "order" some Renegades but it seems like it was just from what will be available at Port, and then once more are on the ground here in the NE (and all over the US) - We'll have the ability to swap with other dealers.If they have plans on it being built in the US, I have no idea - we're always the last to know. However as of right now, we're at the mercy of the plant and what they decide to build. If they see a trend in what's being sold, I'm sure it'll cause an upsurge in those particular models, trim levels and packages
.I would like to think that your dealer just doesn't know and you're not being lied to but if what's written above is true you may be waiting a very long time if you must have the MY SKY. It will be a crap shoot that when your choice hits the port inventory that another dealer doesn't snap it up first.
