Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I heard a rumor of this months ago but it was just that, a rumor. I hope it's true. I wouldn't mind a little more pickup and gas mileage.

Just saw this on Left lane news, Jeep V6 getting 8sp auto, any chance this is true?
The fleet guide PDF available on that site says, "Augmenting the standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and available 5.7L HEMI V8 is an all-new 8-speed transmission mated only to the V6 engine"

...That's an oddly phrased statement: How exactly is the HEMI augmented if the 8 speed tranny is mated only to the V6?

On the next couple pages where it starts to list out features, it still lists (in two places) the V6 powertrain configuration as having a Five-Speed Automatic. The second mentioning also says W5A580.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Any details on the Overland Off Road Adventure II package? Both my trip to the dealer and the web suggest that the 2011 and 2012 versions have the the same features (18 inch wheels, skid plates : fuel, transfer, front, underbody, tow hooks and the badge.) Yet, the 2011 version costs $275 while the 2012 version is $995 (msrp). Why is it 700 bucks more? Overall, a 2012 overland with v8, oraII and 730n now has a msrp of 47,010 vs 45,855. My only guess on the delta would be perhaps you now get reall AT tires with oraII?

Any help would be appreciated. Close to pulling the trigger and waiting 90 days. One last question, any interior pictures? Has the 2012 changed at all?

Thanks

Interesting site, tho it doesn't mention that optional 2012 Overland wheels also have late availability.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Hey Milous,

Maybe you can help with a question I have.





wk2jeeps says 2012 Grand Cherokee - What's New
  • New 20-inch Polished Wheels available on Overland (late availability)
For late availability for these Polished Wheels option on the 2012 Overland, could that possibly be before the end of the 2011 calendar year?

Also, any chance these Polished Wheels in 20" will be available option on 2012 Limited?

Finally, can a 2012 Overland be ordered without quadra lift?

Thanks in advance for any knowledge you can share.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Can I get a quick opinion from the group. Thinking of pulling the trigger on a new GC Overland Summit. Just read this thread and I see that they will be going with a 6 speed trans vs the current 5 speed version. Is this worth waiting for? Should I hold off for the 12's? This will of course cost a bit more since I will lose out on whatever incentives they offer to get rid of the 11's. I will wait and pay more if it is worth it. Thanks.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

On the wk2jeeps site, the Security & Convenience group is listed as being an option for the Laredo X. But everything in that package is already standard equipment on the X, right? Is listing that package as an option just a mistake, or are the components of that package (remote start, garage door opener, etc.) not really standard on the X?
