Milous, are you able to reveal any other updates to the MY13 JGC? I would be curious to know if the nav/interface will be updated (perhaps that from the newer Dodge/Chrysler products).

I'd like to get an update on the 2013 Grand Wagoneer. Haven't heard squat as of late.

Re: 2013 news at Detroit or Chicago?

Here is some more news:

"Jeep Grand Cherokee continues with few changes in standard and SRT8 form; an eight speed automatic arrives late in the model year as Kokomo starts cranking them out (it might be held off until the 2014s)."

Think they are saying the 9 speed will be latter in the year or 2014 the 9 will be on RWD . The 8 speed first 2013 -4X4s .

Re: 2013 news at Detroit or Chicago?

Anytime the year is mentioned, it normally means model year.

The diesel is officially announced and confirmed for 2013 model year, i.e. will be on sale fall of 2012.

Milous has confirmed order banks will open in june/july with august/sept delivery for the diesel.

Still waiting to hear on 8 speed tranny... nothing confirmed. If I had to guess it will come along with the new 2013MY on the standard V6 and diesel. Hemi will keep the 5/6 speed.

I'll have some more info soon regarding tranny and other options, but it's now looking like diesel may not be available until 1st quarter of 2013.
