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

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

My wife collects pig statuettes and such, so that makes for a peaceable avatar. If I used your avatar and she figured I was collecting these, I'd need a hearse not a Jeep.

Back on-topic, from what I've read here and there it appears that the lawsuit with Daimler about providing needed GC parts is far from over, and in fact may be getting nastier. With that in mind, it seems as if intro (aside from the Tech group option) would be anywhere from this autumn to spring 2011. And if the lawsuit isn't favorably resolved there might be no 2011 GC whatsoever.

Any credible feedback on this?

I think those issues were resolve The issues were becuase of axles and chrysler now got a new supplier which is no longer Daimler now it is ZF Making them in Ohio. All they need to do know is get rid of that tranny for next year

Hey if ZF is making the axles/diffs for it hopefully they can do a deal and slot in the 6 speed ZF gearbox too!

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

I like what I see in the 2011 JGC. I think it will be more fun to drive than my RX350 if the on-road handling has been improved over the current model. A Limited with the hemi and RWD is what I'd want. No need for AWD here in Southern AZ. Anybody have any idea as to what the 0-60 time would be with this setup? (Hopefully it's under 7 seconds.)

This is my first post in JG. Nice site.

I would think it would be under 7 seconds pretty easily

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

Well, I bought a 2010 mercedes ML 350 diesel Bluetec (same 3.0L V6 engine as my 2008 GC except the cleaner Bluetec version) ....didn't want another Hemi (traded in my Hemi) and not really keen on the new V6 for 2011 with the 5 sp tranny.....Hope Jeep GC comes out with a diesel for Canada in the future.... in the meantime....well....happy with my decision.....
