I really hate the front . Maybe in person it might look better but I just don't like it.

I dont like the fully independent suspension or fact that its completely luxury now but i know the drill, its not what the market demands bla bla bla.

Re: What don't you like about the 2011 model or what do you think is missing?

I would like to see LED taillights on the WK2. That's about the only change I can suggest right now without having seen the actual vehicle.

Most every conceivable change I was hoping for (larger back seat and cargo area, better interior materials, slightly larger, different front end/headlights/grill) was addressed.

Yeah well said mate, they seem to have addressed most of my complaints too.
I love how they've retained the towing capacity, it lets them compete directly in the heavy towing market with VW and Land Rover.
I'm not sold 100% on the looks, but neither was I sold on my current WK either, but I knew I could drastically improve it with a few subtle mods.
I purchased my current one for the value/horsepower/elec diff locks, thankfully not the interior!

My major beef with the WK2? Without doubt it will be the gearbox, it's well past it's used by date. What this vehicle deserves is the creme of the crop 6 speed ZF auto featured in anything from Ford Falcons through to XKR Jags. If Ford could afford and justify putting it in their (Australian) Falcon, Jeep could easily justify the extra small expense for a truly world class gearbox.

Yes, a new tranny is overdue...6 sp or 7 sp....and how much do you want to bet that when the first reviews come out on the new 2011....they will all trash the fact that the tranny was not updated...with the new 6 cyl...

Yes, it is heavier.....2010 gross vehicle weight rating 4WD V6= 5900 lbs
2011 4WD V6=6500 lbs

So I guess there's no turbo V6 for the new WK?
