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

Hey all,

Just wondering how many of you are planning to buy the new 2011 GC model?

And, if so, are you considering any other vehicles besides the 2011 GC?

Personally, I am planning on on a new purchase for Summer 2010....

I am considering the following vehicles seriously:

2011 GC Overland and I have also been looking at the 2010 Mercedes ML350 Bluetec diesel and comparing the two.

The VW Toureg diesel just seemed a little too ugly to me. The offerings from Honda and Toyota don't really interest me or any other dealer (GM, Audi, Chev, Hyundai, Kia, Ford, Audi etc).

In my local area, there is a local Mercedes dealer but no Lexus or BMW dealer thus, although I might have also considered a Lexus (RX 350 or 450h) or BMW X5, the fact that there is no local dealer does deter me from seriously considering these vehicles. The closest dealer for both is about 3-4 hours away.

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

I will be seriously looking at the 2011 with the hemi...not sure on what model becasue of the suspension variations. I like the overland...but hate wood on the interior. So if its something that can be removed, painted or is an option...I may go that way. It also depends on the suspension...ie. quadra-lift. If the QL can be modified(ie. lowered) I may go that direction.

I am holding out and praying for a 2012 GC SRT8. Maybe even till 2013 if I have to. If they don't make it. I will keep my 06 Limited. Then look for a Vette or an Audi S5.

I would like to stick with a GC maybe in 2012 after they work out some of the kinks of the new wk2 a hemi would be my first choice and if they release the srt8 "oh yeah baby!" ...

if not then Audi A6 or Nissan 370Z

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

It'd be tough for me to get into a first model year vehicle. If I am consider a WK2 it's definitely going to be a 2012 or later. And that's right around the time when I'll be in the market for a new vehicle (assuming this one doesn't have anything happen to it).

For me, I need to decide what platform vehicle I want; SUV or car.

No need for 4x4 in Florida, but I like having all the space that an SUV offers. I also miss driving a sports car, so that's weighing heavily.

I think ideally for me I'd like to keep the Jeep as a daily driver and have a second car; sports car. I"d have to make sure I can support the extra insurance payment though.

I would like an SRT or Hemi WK2, but I too love the Audi S5 and I'll prob go with that If I keep this jeep I have now.

I love the style. But that car is tricky cause IMO it doesn't look good in all colors like jeeps.

The new interior is certainly appealing. Our WK interiors are absolutely awful in my opinion; although it is a Jeep, not a Mercedes.
