Re: WK2 DownUnder

Thanks for the update Milous.
Is there any news on the CRD models in production ?
When will they start making the MY2012 for Oz ?

Re: WK2 DownUnder

The color I ordered was White Gold.
Regarding colors not available, Jeep Australia has posted on their Facebook site that "the effected Australian colours are Brilliant Black, Blackberry Pearl and Inferno Red, all of which contained the ‘xirallic’ ingredient effected by the Japan disaster."

Blackberry is out for the model year. The Black Olive Ash interior trim comes only with the Summit package.
Milous,
Not sure if you are aware of this, the Oz Overlands are about nearly the same spec as the summit.
The brochure here has the Black Olive Ash.

I asked my dealer today for a VIN and he told me Chrysler don't issue them until they are on a boat.

I told him others in Oz have them, he was quite, then said he will look into it.

Thanks Milous for your help.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I have noticed several differences between the USA and Oz specs.
I know mainly the Overland differences.

We get front parking sensors
We get HID headlights
You get all the options on the Oz Overland. Only options are Metalic paint, Rear DVD (but you lose 1/2 the sunroof) and the trail pack (18" and bash plates).
No LED's in the mirrors for indicators, instead we get a guard mounted light
Brown wood in the Overland even though the brochure shows it should be grey.
We get the 731 RHP audio system with Nav and uconnect
We only have the Hemi and CRD as motor choices in the Overland
Kumho tyres on the 20" wheels
Rear foglight
Different rear bar that does not have the tow hitch built in
No 110/240v power in the rear on DVD optioned cars
No saddle trim option (thanks but no thanks)

Thats about all I can think of, but add to the list if you find anything.

hmm, whats with the brown wood, is this to say that our overlands on order won't have black wood??

I wish we had the new saddle trim option. Milous, will our new Overlands be 2012 models? considering orders were put in last week, and delivery is expected late July?

Re: WK2 DownUnder

The USA has the headlight turn indicators as well, but we have a side indicator light in the fender, not the mirror.
