Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Talking to Tommy Jackson, I was impressed. Did NOT seem to be playing any games.

On a busy week, I might work in both Boston and LA. So could pick the GC up at our Oregon location. Have it flat bedded from CA to OR.

Will see if local dealers will match or beat that price.

The buying process was getting discourging. Have been thinking about used GC as a backup but would prefer 2012 GC or Rubicon.

Dave

2008 Jeep Rubican Unlimited - sold, to be replaced with a new Jeep

Chrysler Imperial - sold, to be replaced with a Jeep

Mercedes 300 SDL - to sell, be replaced with a Jeep

Ferrari Mondial t Cab (same model as used in movie "Scent of a Woman" and other movies - only sometmes drive with my eyes closed) - keep

Another Jeep at a new location

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I would like to know as well. I'm ready to pull the trigger on ordering a new Jeep. It's between brilliant black or true blue. I love blue and black is always my backup choice of color on a vehicle. I just don't want to risk ordering a color I've never seen and then end up hating it.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

It almost feels like Jeep is taking the Apple approach and not letting us know much until the actual release.....I hate that. Although I do come to this site every day looking for a new nugget of info.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Milous...........the 2012 V6 will be flex fuel capable, right?
It's not something you have to specify when you order?

I had read a few threads on here where some people with the V6 didn't have the yellow gas cap that says its flex fuel.

I thought all of the Grand Cherokee's with the V6 are flex fuel
I hope so! I don't know if I'll use it....i just like having that option

Milous, thanks for the update on the color but I am still unsure what to make of it. I am assuming you got a paint chip from it and was hoping you might describe the color a little. I was hoping Winter Chill was going to be a bright white as I am not impressed with the stone white that looks almost creamy especially when slightly dirty.

Also I have never order a vehicle before so how do you do financing for this through the dealer. For example they are offering 1.9% for a 2011 Laredo X, would they offer that on a 2012? Also, when would you negotiate a trade-in, on order or delivery?

The "flex-fuel" compatibility is a function of the engine (including the DME and so forth) and it's not something that Chrysler would change on an order by order basis. So, you are correct, ALL of the v6 Wk2s are flex-fuel capable.

Judging from what I've heard, it's not a feature that buys you much, other than the ability to use E85 when there is no other fuel available.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

That's what I figured, It didn't make sense that it would be and order by order basis, and you would have to tell the dealer you want flex fuel.

I was confused by some older posts i found where someone said some earlier builds were flex fuel capable and some not, because one guy didn't have the yellow gas cap?......makes no sense confused!.....LOL

If the V6 is a flex fuel engine, then everyone with a V6 should be able to use flex fuel
