Re: Anyone know when 2012s hit the lots?

What about the possibility of LED DRLs and/or taillights for 2012? When might we see the new NAV that will be in the upcoming 300C and Charger? And lastly, are we at some point going to see a Twin Turbo V6?

Re: Anyone know when 2012s hit the lots?

I'm holding out for the 2012 model. I hope all of the bugs from the 2011's will be worked out for the 2012 models. Will probably order in late Sept for November delivery. C'mon Chrysler/Jeep make the Blackberry Pearl available on the Summit Edition!!

If it hasn't been discovered by the start of 2012 MY production, it won't be fixed. So far, everything determined to be an issue has been incorporated as a running change.

The last bit of info Milous said about the 8-speed was a reply post to my question about two months ago, and it was basically maybe 2012, if not, 2013 for sure.
It would be nice to get an update from him on this.

Yeah I was going to say the same thing. Just because the model year changes from an 11 to a 12 doesnt mean its built differently or the start of a completely different vehicle. The first 2012 will probably roll off the line directly behind a 2011 with absolutely no changes. As mentioned any fix or modification to how the Grand Cherokee is built is done as soon as possible.

I would think for the most part a mid to late built 2011 should be relatively safe and far enough into production that the major things and software changes are fixed. Thats why I waited to order mine this month so I can have a late built 2011. Not only that but I wanted to wait till spring to take delivery so I dont trash it right away with all the salt and winter crap :-)

Re: Anyone know when 2012s hit the lots?

Chrysler mavens have recently stated on the record that the 8-speed is scheduled to replace 5 or 6 speed boxes this summer on various new models just now being introduced. That timing would coincide with when the 2012 WK2 goes into production.

Wpuld Chrysler really be willing to give the GC hind teat by not changing it over to the ZF-8 around that time, as well?

Re: Anyone know when 2012s hit the lots?

Here is a dumb question...sorry....is the proposed 8-speed just for the V6? The V8 says it is currently multi-speed while for the V6 it is 5-speed so this change would only be for a V6 and the V8 wouldn't be changed???
