2011 is bound to be cheaper and virtually the same.

Re: last date to order?

Is there anything different on the 2012's other than LED taillights and (updated electronics according to my Jeep mechanic)?

LED taillamps *might* be exclusive to SRT models only. Expect minimal changes for the 2012 models.

Re: last date to order?

Does the 8 speed trans not show up for the 2012 MY? I read that it will only be available for the V6 for the Chrysler 300...will this be the case for the Jeep engine choices also?

No 8-speed for the 2012 GC. Chrysler 300 V6 and Charger V6 only.

If it were me I would wait since it is so close to the end of the '11 model year. There will probably be a number of minor changes/improvements/bug fixes as is typical with any new model year.

Prices usually go up a little throughout the model year and at the beginning of a new model year. I wouldn't expect any huge increases for the 2012 models, but it can be difficult to figure out/compare exact increases as they juggle around option packages, sometimes adding more "content" to offset price increases. If the budget is tight, sharpen your negotiating skills and buy one as close to invoice as possible, whether it be a 2011 or new 2012 model, and of course watch out for the dealer add-on scams in the finance office.
