Changes for 2012

Do you think they'll change the front faschia or side/rear styling at all? or anything else?

I hope not as I just invested $50k CDN into a new GC Overland and would like to maintain the same image without a redesign for at least 4 years.

Anyone have any inside info besides the addition of the SRT8 model?

Hopefully it is good news.

Re: Changes for 2012

every year they add or change something. if you continue down the 'what about next year' you may never buy one and miss the experience. its just like that. at least its not like apple where the changes every few months are SIGNIFICANT. usually jeep does it subtle for a few years then bang.

Re: Changes for 2012

i think we're safe for body and major style changes for awhile. as noted, this JGC is looking good.

we know the 8 speed, new stereo/nav, oland summit, and SRT8 are forthcoming. i'd imagine we'll see other minor incremental changes such as headlight washers, trim and color tweaks, flash updates, and electronic upgrades (all are guesses). maybe a diet down the road?

while we're dreaming, i'd just like a nicer header or SRT8 manifold upgrade for the WK2 from Santa.

Re: Changes for 2012

Maybe V6 tweaks, too -- direct injection, dual exhausts and the like to improve mileage slightly and boost HP/torque probably under ten percent.

Re: Changes for 2012

I don't believe they will change any styling of until the 3rd model year. They may add a few extra's (colors, electronics, and safety systems)

Re: Changes for 2012

I heard that in 2012 the hemi will have over 400ft/lbs of torque, and get 30mpg. The QL will go from 5 inches of ground clearance (for sports car handling), to 18 inches for rock-crawling. The adaptive cruise control will also steer for you in addition to controlling the spacing with the car in front, so you can watch T.V or read while you drive. The ventilated seats will have a built in urinal so you don't have to stop on road trips. Definitely worth waiting for the next model.

Now THAT is a feature that I could use, no more fussing with the HERE bottles. (Human Endurance Range Extender)

I have often thought about some kind of a tube so it would drain discreetly under the vehicle, kind of like the condensate water from the AC.

LOL

Re: Changes for 2012

They will add a 4th gray. Three is just not enough.
