Re: 2012 now or 2013 next year worth the wait?

I too agree - always going to be 'something' else to wait for and not order - my local dealer just called me this morning and offered me a deal on a 2012 Overland that I couldnt pass up - and I just bought a 2011 Overland a year ago - but for their offer, I couldnt resist going to the newest model year....

As far as the tranny is concerned, I agree an 8 speed going to be wayyyy too many gears - this is another reason I just went up to the 2012 - I hated the 2011 with 5 speed and feel that a 6 speed is going to be the perfect compromise between the 5 and an 8.

Love my color combo so I didnt even change the interior or exterior colors at all - Brilliant Pear Coat Black with Light/Dark Frost Beige Interior - V8, of course and added the Summit Chrome grill, Chrome fog lamp bezels and Chrome Jeep Bug Guard...

For me I would wait until they work the bugs out with the first couple model years of a new design and it appears there are plenty. My 2 cents.

You do realize that the 5 speed and 6 speed transmissions are identical to eachother and all that was needed was a simple update to get the new 6 speed performance out of the 5 speed.

jeepster - - I understand.....but the new one does drive better...

That being said - I couldnt care less...to move up from the 2011 overland to the new 2012 overland was a minimal amount of money...and since I like new things...why not....

Besides that, I added the Summit Grill, Chrome Bezel Fog Lamps and Chrome Bug Guard to the 2012...hey, lifes too short, have fun with it and buy lots of toys to make it more fun !!
