Probably early June if the 2013 order banks open around the same time as this year's model did.

Re: What's next for 2013?

I kinda relate car choices to tv's. Yes cheaper but still a pain in the ass to pull the trigger. I was set on a LED tv for months and ended up going w/ a plasma after seeing them side by side. Never thought I'd do that.

Still deciding between cts-v, camaro zl1, or wk2. Just gotta make a decision before Im 80 and cant drive anyway haha

Re: What's next for 2013?

I just want to know if the 8.4" UConnect Touch is going in the 2013 GC's. Only thing holding me back from picking up a 2012 immediately. It would kill me to find out in 2 months that they are upgrading to the new electrical systems...

Oh well, I wait patiently instead

Re: What's next for 2013?

Yeah I am kinda in the middle too - CTS-V/Sedan/Wagon is on the list, WK2, ZL1, Cobra, 911....bottom line is I need some utility with 3 kids but with all these cars there are drawbacks. I guess waiting gives more time for downpayment...each one has pluses and drawbacks.

I was at the Rolex 24 and saw the WK2 in person for the first time - pretty impressive. I rented a a Camaro SS and while it has power and was fast...I expected a little more. Also small as hell and no utility (this was a convertible) but I don't see the coupe being much better.

Anyway - I just wish the Jeep had a little more power and some of the new features of the othe SRT8 models and it would be a slam dunk.

My guess is that this will be coming on the mid-upgrade, MY2014.

That's what I've seen as well. It's about time they incorporate them and catch up in that area of vehicle technology. It would be sweet to see those rear fog/reflectors as LED's.

True. But all of the other vehicles in the line up have it. To me, it doesn't make a lot of sense that the Grand Cherokee doesn't have the same system available as a $25k Dodge Journey. Of course you can go further into that with the fact that it is the only SRT that doesn't have it...

I wouldn't be surprised if it was part the mid-cycle refresh - but I also wouldn't be surprised if they did it for 2013. This isn't just an SRTGC comment, I'm talking across the board for their 'flagship' SUV.

Who knows. I'm just itching for Milous to chime in with his first quarter release of knowledge nuggets

Well, the sooner, the better. No doubt about that.

I'm only having a former remark from Milous in mind where he called the MY14 the one that is "going to have the major changes". That, however, was a while ago and only Milous knows if that info is still up-to-date..

Only 3 vehicles have the 8.4 screen - the Charger, 300 and the Journey. The new 2013 Dodge Dart will be the 4th vehicle. These vehicles have the new "powernet" electrical systems which was not quite ready when the Grand Cherokee was launched earlier.

The Challenger SRT does not have the 8.4 screen, and will not be getting it for the 2013 model year.

Last I checked the Jeep GC will be getting the new radio for the 2014 model year refresh. In fact, it may have the upcoming 2nd gen 8.4 radios which, among other new features, will have a "smart-touch" screen.

As everyone knows, the GC is selling extremely well. They do not need a lot of new features to keep the ball rolling for the upcoming 2013 model year. While I should have more info later this month, I wouldn't expect many notable changes for the upcoming model year. New colors as always, a good possibility for the LED taillamps, and *maybe* the new 8-speed for V6 models.
