Because depending on how you equip it, you can save almost $3,000 dollars. The 2011 4X4s come standard with QDII and ELSD that you have to pay extra by getting the $995 ORAG II package on the 2012s unless you're buying a Summit which has the QDII and ELSD standard. Also, the HEMI price went up $200 on the 2012s and the base price increased from $42,295 to $42,995.
That's $200 more for the HEMI, $700 more for base price increase, $995 more for the ORAG II to get QD II and ELSD on a non-Summit and you're already at $1895 plus the existing $1000 brings you to $2895 before taxes and interest on a loan if you are financing is factored in. The 2011s are definitely a better value. Even if you negotiate the same percentage off of MSRP on a 2012 equipped that way relative to a 2011, you'll still pay about $3K more. If you live in an area where the incentives on the Overlands went up, that number just increases.
