Black, silver, grey, brown, white, and white. Nothing I would call a "color."

Thank you!

Is there any way to find out the suggested retail and the invoice prices?

The only pearl paint is the summit-only brown. Maybe they have a stockpile of the brown and are still unable to get paints with Xirallic pigment?

Pricing information has not been announced yet. Final pricing may not be confirmed until close to launch.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I guess that the other colors originally mentioned such as steel metallic, etc. won't be available until later in the model year?

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I will say, my 5.7L w/ 5-speed shifts smoother with 1,000 miles under its belt. Not sure how much the 6-speed will improve things....any thought?

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Milous,
Can you tell us if the optional 6sp is just a retuned 5sp or a completley new gearbox ?

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

What is launch?

When the order book opens? or
When the new JGC goes into production? or
When the first units arrive on dealer lots?

It's a simple recalibration of the existing gearbox.

Just like when the same gearbox was used in WJ's. Upon release it was a 4 speed, then in later years they reprogrammed it to be 5 speeds. It's a matter of modifyinging the electronics, not so much the mechanicals.

My assumption is that just like WJ, you'll be able to update the softward with the dealer to update a 2011 to 2012 6 speed status.
