Re: Track your newly ordered 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8-only at JeepGarage.Org

Congrats! that is the best color! It is probably the only shade of deep red that seems quite different in daylight and night time, even more so in pictures, before & after wash!
Is the front grill perfectly same shade of deep red as the hood?

i noticed that the Middle East & NZ models are nearly the same in terms of options (front sensors, headlight washers, turn signals absent from side mirrors, etc).

Does your DRL LED stay lit at night?

Yep - so glad I went for deep cherry red! The shade is the same all over.

You know, I never noticed the absence of signals on the mirror. You're right - not a trace. No idea why - plenty of vehicles have them here.

And I'm pretty sure the DRLs are only on in the D.

Hey, check out the pic... 0-100kmph is almost identical to 0-62mph. The scary time is due to the motorway on ramp I used being slightly downhill. Done it twice now - must find a flat road to try!

Congratulation kiwisrt8, the car looks great. I was wondering what the standard spec of vehicles delivered to NZ is? I am guessing it will be the same as spec for Ozzy srt8's.
Cheers

I expect so - might even be the same as the UK spec models. There are only two main options - the larger sun roof (instead of the rear DVD which is standard) and the row bar. They're imported essentially with all the toys on board and few options.

Hi Milous, has there been any change since May 10 with regard to Australian production? My order won't be allocated an VIN until the vehicle launch, apparently Jeep Australia want to build up an inventory before the launch??

Any news appreciated.

2012 model year production ended on Friday 29th. The grand total for Australia ended up at 132 vehicles, distributed as follows:

Adelaide 004
Brisbane 031
Fremantle 019
Melbourne 043
Sydney 035

About 35 of the 132 vehicles were just built in the past 10 days or so, most of those will not reach Australia until early-mid August.

2013 SRT production started today (including Australia). No way really to tell them apart other than by VIN number.

Hi Milous - I have been told that my MY2013 WK2SRT8 (Black) is not that far off being delivered (to Australia) if possible could you let me know where it is up to on your system. They have been saying for some time that we are expecting a mid December shipment arrival.

Thanks
