have any changes for 2012 model year been announced?

Well for those that followed my other thread I went ahead and ended up cancelling my order for the 2011 Overland. I was kind of upset about it at first, but after thinking about it that was the smart thing to do. Then I started adding up all the benefits of waiting a year or so and now im feeling real good about my decision.
So my plan now is to consider either a 2012 Overland or SRT8 a year or so down the road. This will give me a chance to save up a little extra cash and let things settle down around the house with our expected child later in the summer.
With all that said I was wondering if Milous or anyone else has heard about any of the changes or updates that are expected for the 2012. I personally havent read about any on this site so im guessing that info isnt out yet otherwise I probably would have heard about it myself. I read the info on the SRT8 and was pleased to see additions such as LED tail lights, interior lighting, and front LED's in the headlamps. Kind of wondering if thats only for the SRT8 or possibly the Overland as well (should have been for 2011 but whatever). If no info is available as of this time any idea when we will know more? I cant believe more info hasnt been leaked considering we are supposed to see the new SRT8 in less than two months and I would assume all the other 2012's as well.

James

J, glad to hear you still have your eye out. I'm fearful of the SRT8 being so kick arse that it'll force me into a major mistake.

Hard to say what if any other changes in store for 2012, maybe body colored grill, mirrors, and door handles?

It does feel like a price increase will be forthcoming given 70K+ units sold year 1, and Overland's popularity and price-value.

Re: have any changes for 2012 model year been announced?

Yeah I know what you mean about the SRT8. I have always been into high performance cars and the SRT8 is best of both worlds. An amazing SUV with incredible performance. My only worries are if its a daily driver would I be able to put up with the mpg ratings of the SRT8. Im praying that with the new 4 cyl mode of the 6.4l that there will be atleast a minor increase in mpg but im not holding my breath for that.
If it turns out the SRT8 is not for me I hope the Overland gets the LED tails and DRL's. Changes like that are what im looking for.

Milous just stated in another thread that LED taillights are coming in MY2012. I haven't heard of any other changes.
