The model is Grant Hendrickson, he works for the Models 1 agency in the U.K. The vehicle is a Deep Cherry Red Summit. The LED's on the SRT are open on one side (like the Chrysler 300 pic posted earlier today).

That's interesting. So was the removal of the grey grille shown in the LeftLaneNews/MotorTrend spy pics a last minute change, or was it only ever intended to be used in export models?

I'd honestly expect it to be inline (or slightly more) than the Hemi option (so around 2k over the V6), as that's what folks in the EU and Oceania are currently seeing.

If that's the case, then your break even point depends if you are starting at the V6 or the V8.
Good point, thanks. Much as I like V8 power, its just too thirsty for me. If (when?) gas goes back up in price the V6 will still be way to go. Besides, the current 6 has more HP & torque than the last Jeep in our family, a 2002 with the 4.7 and QD if I remember right. That's enough. I don't tow.

Understood. But come Sunday night we'll be able to see 'em all then?

If you could, please let them know I said we'd like to see hi-res pictures of all of the colors. (Although 100+ suggests most will be shown but who knows.)

I was referring to the U.S. models, have not seen pics of the exports models - I sure hope they don't use that gray grille!

Yes, Sunday night reveal (9:01pm Pacific / 12:01am Eastern).

Sunday reveal will include well over 100 hi-res images. SRT, red only. Summit red only. Limited, one of the blue colors. Overland interior only. No Laredo pics. Lots of interior pics. Will also include detailed information on all of the models, specs, and a features list that covers Standard equipment and Options for all models.

I am assuming that they will release a 2nd series of photos sometime Monday.

Gotcha. Well, I must be one of the the only ones who liked it, in the photos at least.

In a way I'm glad they're not using a different grille for the Laredo though. I did fear that it might make the Laredo look super downmarket compared to the higher trims, which isn't the case with the '11-'13s.

Does anyone know if the new grille will be able to be easily removed like the current grille is? (For color swaps, easy plasti-dipping, etc.)

Whaaaat. Oh, other question -- the grilles are exactly the same for all trims but the SRT then, just like with the '11-'13 (except for the TrailHawk, Altitude, etc.)? No extra chrome on certain trims, or anything like that?

That's good. I know I've said this a million times but I do hope they reveal pictures of all of the colors before the banks open. I want to make sure the color I choose "jives" (to my personal liking) with the new front end design.
