Question....get one now or order?

Ok, so i have a dilemma. I will be a first time Jeep owner and I'm very excited to get one......
Now, Should i get a 2011 Grand cherokee with the only the luxury group now, or wait and order a 2012 with the luxury group and adaptive cruise package? (which i what i really wanted originally but found out when i went to the dealer at the end of may they stopped taking orders for 2011's)

Does anyone think the adaptive cruise package is worth it to wait and order one with it?

thanks!!
Jackie

I would wait. I love the ACC and the blind spot monitoring is almost a must have (IMHO). The rear cross path detection has come in handy also.

I would wait also, ACC is really nice and if you get the Hemi you will have the 6 spd Trans as well.

Re: Question....get one now or order?

Not sure if its worth all the price increases as well as the sticker price to you, but advanced warning and adaptive cruise is one of my favorite features. It works very well for me.

There should be some on the lots with the options you want, right? No?

Re: Question....get one now or order?

I wish!....LOL We went to a Jeep dealer at the end of May and they tried to locate one. Stone white limited V6, frost beige interior, luxury group, upgraded nav, and adaptive cruise package. They couldn't find not one!

They told us they had stopped taking orders on 2011's......grrrrr
so we couldn't order one then either

There are very few Limiteds, or Laredo X's for that matter, at any of the Jeep dealers in my area. Almost everything is Overlands and base Lardedos. Not much 'in the middle', though.

Waiting definitely sucks!....LOL But we decided last night that we aren't going to just rush into getting one now, and we are going to order a 2012 with everything i want!...

I know myself and if get one now without the adaptive cruise I'm going to regret it and everytime i see a car with it I'll be mad that i don't have it......LOL

That's how I felt with my 08 limited, I wanted the hemi but ended up getting the 4.7 v8 instead. I was mad everytime I saw one with the 5.7. I fixed that with 2011 though. Good luck!
