Re: 2012 WK2 - special black edition

WOW I am absolutely in love with this! one question though, this is based on the Laredo X package, but I see in the pics from the Houston auto show that it has blacked out HID headlamps. Are the HID's normally an available option on the Laredo X? I was building one on Jeep's website and couldn't find where it was an option. Just trying to figure out if maybe they will be offering different options on the black edition - or if this was just for the prototype.

Milous - any thoughts?

Re: 2012 WK2 - special black edition

Just got back from the car show and got to really look at the new "black edition" in depth. I forgot the camera, sorry guys!

The red with the black trim looks better in person. I'd still prefer body colored trim to black, but it looks pretty good. The grill interior and the trim on the bottom of the front bumper is a nice liquid matte platinum color instead of chrome like it is in the Overland Summit.

The vehicle that was there was indeed a Laredo X, the dark wood trim, no memory seats, no side mirror blinkers...but it did have HID headlamps. They are not an option on the Laredo X, and the people there did not know if they will be on the production vehicle. The vehicle in the press pictures posted here does not have HIDs, but the black one someone else showed at a car show also had them. My thought is on the preproduction vehicles at the shows they might have used the headlamp housings from the SRT since they are black surrounds to avoid having to create black housings for the halogen fixtures just for the show cars...who knows.

Neat package, I wouldn't buy it but its well done.

Re: 2012 WK2 - special black edition

Thanks SWO3ES. I've got my parents also entering name ideas trying to win this thing. If we win, going to have my mom drive it. She will get it in stone white with black interior. If it does have HIDs that would be very cool.

Re: 2012 WK2 - special black edition

Excuse my ignorance but is this model actually going into production in the near future or is it only available to whoever wins this contest they have going on?

I would so buy this in a heartbeat, LOVE the murdered out look.

Jeep has said they expect to build this new trim level this spring.

Re: 2012 WK2 - special black edition

It looks nice, but still think mineral gray is the best color

funny how little cosmetic mods change the look of a vehicle....

Re: 2012 WK2 - special black edition

To JEEP:

More of my ideas:

1. Use aluminum painted gloss black for interior Applique. I've mentioned this before a couple of times.

2. HIDs and turn signal indicators should be standard.

3. Lux II should be an available option: Nappa leather, power liftgate, heated steering wheel and cooled seats. Or a different Lux package that includes everything in Lux II, call it Lux III and that would include a black leather dash with platinum stitching (or black stitching).

4. Grille inserts brilliant black on the brilliant black vehicle and gloss black on the other colors, instead of the platinum chrome. Or just the black insert like the Overland has.

5. Overland wheels as an option, not painted black either.
