The Jeep dealer near me had a '13 Alpine in his lot.
this was several days ago. Located in Detroit suberbs.
If interested let me know and I will call over there as see
if it' still around.
Sounds like your dealer never ordered the car as he had no
allocations left. Chevy dealer did this to me on a new '08 Vette
order. I kept track on the order status and ended up demanding
my downstroke back after 4-5 weeks of no order activity. They do this
to get you to come down and pick up a car they have on the lot already
at a higher price. My advice on ordering cars like Vettes, SRT'8s and such
is that the dealer has only so many he will get in a given model year.
Demand to know that the dealer has the allocation before you order.
