Re: Are you planning to buy a 2011 GC? What other models are you considering, if any

I hope to trade my 07 in. I like the new WK2. That is all.

Nope, when the lease is up on my 08 GC I really want to get an 08 Commander which is what I wanted when I got the GC. Or I might buy the GC out.

Have not decided yet, but will not be new, too much depreciation any more.

Re: Are you planning to buy a 2011 GC? What other models are you considering, if any

I am considering purchasing a new WK2 in 2011 or 2012 and am interested in the Overland model.

I see comments above referring to the 2011 GC Overland, but I thought the Overland wasn't being released until the second model year in 2012?

According to the info on this site, there will be an Overland model in 2011 but not an SRT model in 2011....

I hear ya there.....I don't want to even know how much money I have lost due to depreciation by buying new vehicles instead of one that is a year or two old....

Did you need that 3rd row seat in the Commander or was it the squarer look of the Commander that you wanted?

Yes, a lot of plastic....From what I have read, that was partly due to Daimler who cheapened the interiors of most models when they took over Chrysler...Now, I understand they are trying to improve the interiors of most models because so many have complained....

If the QL can be modified(ie. lowered) I may go that direction.
I am the opposite....I really liked the look of the real wood interior of the Overland and the wood on the steering wheel I thought really looked good and it reminded me of older cars that always had a wood steering wheel...

I know the 'S' Limited version in 2010 has metal inserts instead of the wood trim on the Limited that I have....not sure if the U.S. has the 'S' Limited version though.....I seen one at my local dealer a few weeks ago...

Seems a lot of people want the Hemi or the SRT version....I was actually thinking of going with the new 6 cylinder engine in 2011....

Not really sure I need the Hemi......

You're right. I thought I read a while back somewhere here or on wk2jeeps.com that the Overland would not be coming until 2012, but I am glad to see that it will be available right away!

I just feel sorry for the SRT guys... 45k for a vehicle with that interior. Sucks.

A $30k BMW (or pretty much any German car) has a far better interior.

I would love a first year model WK2. I want a Quadra lift diesel Laredo if that's an option? If not I want a 2009 diesel with a superlift! lol
