WH 2? Are we expecting one?

Really a question for Milous, but should us overseas right hand drive people be expecting a new Grand Cherokee?

If so, how far behind the release of the LHD version?

Is it still going to be built in Austria?

RHD versions are currently scheduled to begin production on December 20, 2010. RHD diesel model startup is January 2011 (Europe) and February 2011 (Australia). All will be built at the Jefferson North plant. Based on what I have seen on internal documents, export models will also be "WK", and "WH" will be dropped.

The info I have shows the 3.0 diesel (same as current), the new Pentastar 3.6L, and the 5.7 Hemi. The 6.4L Hemi will be added for the '12 SRT models.

Re: WH 2? Are we expecting one?

the only issue I see is the tails. in eurpoe, maybe AUS, they MUST have an amber rear turn signal. in US red or amber flies.

these pics, while they have RHD, have red tails........
