Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

would love to see that new 8" radio/nav in the future WK2s. Wonder what the holdup is... exhausting the existing stock of the old ones?

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

You are better off securing a 2011 GC Limited or Overland. Milous confirmed price increases all in play. I doubt there will be many changes, if any. A 6-speed is possible, based on what I have read. IMO, 6 vs. 5-speed is not going to be a huge gas saving delta. Beyone that, why pay 2012 pricing. Find a 2011, they are out there. Save $sssss.

They'll probably had to so some significant redesign in order to do it because of the bigger size. Move the A/C vents and ductwork on either side of it, etc. They'd want to probably redesign the array of HVAC buttons that are underneath it, too, so that the size of that array of buttons in in proportion to the new display. etc. I'm sure they want to get some ROI on the current design before they go and do all that.

If you're going to sell it only a few years down the road then the 2012 will have depreciated less which could easily make up for the price increase.

Exactly. But if they are not going to make a 2012 Overland Summit (and that's what you want) now's our only chance since they have stopped production on 2011 models.

I am interested in a V8 Summit and I have two competing bad daydreams:
- One is that I buy a 2011 Summit and the NEXT DAY they announce some awesome improvements for a 2012 model, such as a 6-speed RFE box with better ratios/gas mileage/highway downshift dynamics, sweet new color options, and upgraded wood paneling by the radio and shifter (instead of that so-so aluminum look).
- In the other one, I see the announcement that there will be no 2012 Summit and the next day I go back and I can't get one cause all the existing inventory is taken up by others who scrambled faster than me to get one.

Really can't go wrong in any case (I do like that white/frost overland color combo), but I suppose obsessing is part of what these boards are for

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

No. He indicated that advance orders for the 2012 WK2 will be taken starting on or about that date. Orders for the 2011 were closed not long back.

My reasons for waiting until the 2012 models arrive is not primarily for the potential added features or options. I'm hoping for a more reliable vehicle and hope they fix the issues with the Quadra-Lift and Key Fobs (and any other systemic problems).

Milous, will there be a Summit Edition for Europe as well? (or anything like that)
And when will the CRD in Europe, which has been introduced this month with a 5-speed transmission, get the 6-speed?

I agree...2nd year of new model should have all the issues worked out...hopefully..the other changes are just perks of waiting
