2012 WK2 - Do we know anything yet?
 
Just curious if there are any indications at this point of modifications/updates that would be incorporated on the 2012 model. I anticipate anything would be minor unless issues with the 2011 model require a change to be made.

Sez who, the ZF for MY2012?

If so, this is news, indeed. Last I heard it was the 2013 model or thereabouts for the ZF, with an unspecified 6-speed box possibly filling in the gap for the GC/Durango between now and then.

Not likely the new tranny is ready 6 months from now. They only recently decided what plant would build it... still all kinds of tooling and prep to do.

per Milous.....2012 WK2 SRT8.....5-speed, LED tails and DRLs. The non SRT8 models, I believe will see the LED tails, and maybe the DRLs. Perhaps a couple of exterior color changes. That is about it.

1. What is a DRL?
2. Where did Milous state these were the changes coming?

May I ask where you heard that? Because I'm pretty sure thats not going to happen at least for the WK2 crowd.

I based my speculative post on what I heard on some other automotive forums, Chrysler/Fiat press releases specifically related to ZF tranny production and projected appilcations. As you know this info doesn't mean anything until a WK2 rolls off the assembly line with an 8 speed ZF or maybe even a 6 speed tranny! (Although I'm pretty sure thats not going to happen any time soon!)

6-speed will be on diesel modification

Motortrend had an article about all Crysler engines getting multiair pretty soon. Probably a 2013 change for the v6
