I saw deliveries as early as late September but didn't get mine until November 17th.

Re: What's next for 2013?

I'm not saying it's not something to be curious about, but don't let it dictate what you want because the grass may possibly, based on speculation of what may come, be greener on the other side. If you like it, buy it...otherwise we would all be in an endless holding pattern because historically things get better. I bought a '11 Shelby GT500 which was better than the 2010 because it had an aluminum block instead of cast iron and upgraded suspenstion. The 2010 was better than the 2008, etc. Now the 2013 is going to have a bigger SC and bored out to a 5.8 over the 5.4 putting out 650 HP. Do I regret buying the '11? Nope, it's a beast of a car. Would I like to have a '13? Of course, but I'd have 2 years of owning a 550HP Mustang and enjoyed every minute of it instead of waiting saying I'm waiting to see what's next. Then the 2013 will come out and there will be rumors of a bigger, badder package.

Re: What's next for 2013?

I've heard the 2013 will have a modified 8 speed for the Hemi with a very tall cruising 9th gear, which will bring the MPG to near 29 MPG on the highway for a zero payload GC (no passengers or driver). I've also heard that a 3rd and possibly 4th row seating could be added, but the 4th row will only be functional with the tailgate open. The new Jeep R-Mote will enable owners to adjust the radio stations or DVD player while at work or even 500 miles away, though this will only be available on the new JGC Upper Overland Summit Crest models which will come with two donuts instead of a full spare. Two donuts will usually get you a spare tire anyway. The JGC Laredo DIY X will come with a raw wood interior, allowing owners to varnish or stain as they wish. Of course the big news will be the new ASTS (Adaptive Slap Threat System) which may not be politically correct, but should keep badly behave kids in line when the RDE, LES or PIS systems fail to do their job.

Seriously....we're going to wait for the 2013 models. The bottom line is we'll want the newer car or a 2012 at a lower price....and that'll be the deal come summer!

As much as I'd love to see cool changes, you'd hate to see TOO many changes after just getting our 2012's!

Re: What's next for 2013?

In reality I trust and hope Jeep and SRT make any changes needed to keep them competitive and ahead of the pack.

Definitely remember having my '06 and then seeing all the neat new things that '07 and beyond brought... New touchscreen nav, backup camera, new interior, performance pages on the EVIC...remote start (Chuckle)..

Expect a similar series with the new one, and I wouldn't trade it for the 6-12 months that I'll have with my WK2, before that even starts to begin.

Has the new information persuaded you to purchase a MY 2013 WK2 SRT8?

I was at the Detroit auto show yesterday, and the WK2 SRT8 is one of the best vehicles at the show. I am getting closer to pulling the trigger. $15k in rebates and EE pricing discounts and I will order tomorrow.
