When is the 2012 coming out?
 
Since I see there are many threads about fires, TSBs and other problems, I was wondering when the 2012s are scheduled to be released?

The manuals will say 2012 on them.

When will they make Black Clear Coat as a color option again? Not having Black Clear Coat available is holding me back from getting a new Overland. The Overland wheels in solid chrome would be nice too - any possibility of that happening?
Thanks.

That's classic.:lol:

But seriously, you'll probably see the '12 JGC at dealerships before any information comes out about it, just like the 2011. I remember asking a dealership/ jeep.com for info ...nothing until the jeep was sitting at the dealership.

Chrysler information division deserves a D- when it comes to product information.

I ordered a wrangler brochure online 3 weeks ago...nothing.

My fingers are crossed for the diesel. There is also speculation that the 8 speed ZF transmission may come in 2012.

1) There aren't "many threads" about fires. There's TWO. Only one has any detail. Calm down.

2) TSBs are incorporated as running changes. That means that current 2011 vehicles rolling off the line have all the current TSBs applied. They don't wait for a model year changeover for that.

3) As of yet, there are no major changes to the WK2 (as we've had to say in every other thread asking this same question). Maybe some color changes or other minor feature changes, but even those haven't been released yet. The only reason to hold off would be for new transmissions, but those are likely to be 2013, NOT 2012, so you'd be settling in for a wait anyway (and if the last week or so is any indication, the new transmissions will come with much complaining and fear about how they'll kill your children due to obvious defects that have been reported by this one dude on the internet).

According to my top secret inside sources, that information is 100% accurate.

Brilliant Black is on the 2012 launch schedule, no sign of Black at this time, but they have brought it back before so you never know.

Not if you hang around the Garage :).

No Diesel listed for 2012 North America model year. The 2012 models will definitely NOT have the 8-speed.

I have a feeling any major changes would go into the SRT8 and then maybe the Overland as an SRT8 package or something. LED lights for example. As for TSBs, every vehicle has them...especially NEW ones. What would be more important to know is the percentage of problems. I remember when Microsoft had one of their new OSs, I want to say Vista, there was a lot of talk about the number of issues, but it had more to do with the sheer number of people buying it! As a percentage of total sales, the new Mac OS at the time had many more problems. Before the backlash starts, I like Windows and Mac for different reasons. Not bashing either!

Is it not impossible that some changes could come mid-year?
