Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Thanks Milous. How about headlights? Are the led running lights coming to all models? It is weird that the LED tail lights are srt only.....still, just a swap away.

If you have a chance Milous, tell them to paint the lowers on the Overland, or at least offer it as an option.

The new colors look promising. Are any of them currently offered on other models other than the redline? The Deep Burgundy Pearl Coat and Canyon Brown Pearl Coat look promising.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Thanks for this most helpful update. My wife will be all smiles when she sees the Redline Pearl option!

Wow, where'd that six-speed (XF?) box come from? Even prelim SRT8 specs cited a five-speed box as recently as a few weeks back.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Yeah where did the 6 speed come from? Thought no new trannys until 2013. Oh well I am trading for the SRT8 anyways

Keep the updates coming.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Any chance the V6 will get the 6-speed? What about a 2012 Diesel?
A factory shark fin would be nice too.
Oh ya, and power folding mirrors.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Wonder why they're switching to a 6 speed for 12' with talk of an 8 speed the following year in 13'. Seems kinda strange don't ya think?
