I ordered my JGC around Nov. 21, 2011 and my dealer had it on the lot around Dec. 21, 2011. Like some others I was trying to make the decision of getting the V6 or the V8. The strange part is when I first thought about buying a JGC, my mind was already set on the V8, and I've never owned a V8 or Hemi before.
I went with black on black, and every option you can get except the chrome package and the rear entertainment (the panoramic sunroof is WAY better IMO lol.)
The MSRP was $48,305 ($50,122 total), and my price out the door was $44,278 including TTF etc. I went through True Car and purchased the Jeep from a dealer about 70 miles ,and an hour and 15 min. drive away.
Posting my nearly 3 week update, basically saying I LOVE this Jeep.
It has plenty of power when I need it and the Jeep seems to move so effortlessly. The 6-speed transmission shifts so smooth and the Jeep is very quiet while driving, unless of course you give it some deep acceleration. The other night I was doing about 40 mph, and I needed to get in front of this ricer Subaru, so I gave the Hemi some acceleration and like 2 secs later I was already over 75 mph with the Hemi roar to match. I currently have 325 miles on the Jeep and I'm getting around 12 mpg all city running 89 octane. I drive ECO friendly (keeping the ECO light on), so I'm hoping to get better mpg after some more miles are put on it.
I washed it yesterday with ZipWax Turtle Wax car wash and wash, and put some wet black Turtle Wax tire shine on the tires. (I put up some pics, but I know they're not the best.)
