Here's a link to a 2012 Window Sticker for a dealership in Houston and it shows 14/20 for a 4X2 Hemi with the 6 spd and that is the SAME rating that the 4X2 with HEMI had for the 2011 with the 5spd. I've seen online that the rating for the 4X4 HEMI with the 6spd was bumped up slightly from 13/19 to 13/20.

My Overland is still in D1 status but the future information has been updating. It no longer shows "at facility" or "loaded on railcar" but the arrival at destination date is still 8/5. I am beginning to believe it will happen.

From all the 2012 in transit inventory checks through insight. It seems like the factory released V6 models before V8 Hemi models for whatever reason. Maybe since the new V8 comes with the 6 speed they wanted to do more extensive inspection before releasing. My MG/Saddle Overland Hemi with ACC just got KZed today and will be loaded on a train tomorrow according to my futures on the tracking. There is one other member on the site in California that has his 2012 V8 Overland on the train in Missouri at the current time. It seems like I might be the first 2012 Overland V8 delivery on the forum.

Re: D-Day 2012 Is Here

A 2012 V8 Overland has already been built and on rail car right now, but not delivered to dealer until August 10th. Unsold.

That's my scheduled dealer delivery date, Aug 10th. But me being in NJ, I can see it arriving a little sooner.

Re: D-Day 2012 Is Here

Called Chrysler today around 2:45pm CT turns out my 2012 GC Overland is still in Paint status now for the last 6 days. They don't seem to understand why its still in the status. Even the rep thought that was odd. He even went through 2 other systems to see if anything else updated.

Good luck to others waiting. Looks like things have slowed down a bit. They even had my estimated ship date as July 28th still. I will check tomorrow again and keep you posted.

Re: D-Day 2012 Is Here

Things have definitely slowed down. I just called and was told my new ship date is tentatively 8/11. I find it interesting that the Insight Logistics web page still shows that the vehicle will be unloaded in Albany on Friday.
The Chrysler rep said she knows nothing of the Insight webpage???

Re: D-Day 2012 Is Here

Yeah it definitely slowed down. I called again about 20 minutes ago hoping to have some progress but it turns out I'm still in Paint status. Not sure about you but any paint shop could paint a car in a day or two max. This should have been a 24 hour thing. Today marks 7 days in paint status. Funny thing is every time I call in they all say well it looks like your estimated ship date is ....... Then say - Oh wait it was last Thursday. Sorry I have no other updates..... This wait is now driving me nuts. If I was seeing progress I would be ok but sitting in Paint status for 7 days is not helping.

After mine showed up and was delivered the Insight page stopped working for my VIN all together. Not sure if it's as up to date as we all like to think or not. I remember at one point during the build it wasn't as up to date as what the dealer had told me. Sorry to hear of all the issues, hopefully things will start to flow again soon.
