2011 Mojave or wait for 2012 special edition?

What's the down side or upside to getting a 2011 Mojave wrangler unlimited vs waiting for a 2012 special edition wrangler unlimited? I'm excited about the pentastar V6 but also wonder if they will dumb down anything else I love about the current version. Any scuttle out there? Do tell! FYI, I test drove the Mojave in serious rain and zero issues regarding leaks.

I checked out the Mojave jku today while waiting for the dealer to figure out my leak problem(2011 jku)..they are gonna replace my header..Was a white one..white hard top..wheels were nice..didn't like the hood decal or the seats tho...If you can wait to see what the 2012 has to offer then I say wait.

I think the Mojave has nice seats. Like the tan color but hate the matching fenders and tops. One of the downfalls of a Sahara IMO. Not that it is ugly, but not very trail friendly when having to worry about scratching that expensive of a Jeep. Make a real nice daily driver though. I think they should have made the Jeep more trail rated and less pretty. Same for the 70th edition. Still haven't figured out why they made the 70th anniversary Jeep from an Sahara either. Think they would want to make the 70th something rugged like it's past not a model to appeal the hummer crowd.

Decided to wait for 2012

I'm gonna save and hang tough for the new 2012 unlimited sahara or a special edition unlimited wrangler. For me, the new changes are what has attracted me to the wrangler....just the right balance between comfort, looks and a go anywhere capability!

Im certain the 2012s will be more money.

Ok, new engine and tranny. Whats wrong with what we have right now?

We dont need 202hp as it is, my 1960 CJ5 had about 60hp.

I would shop for the best deal if it were me.

I will wait

Thanks for al the input! I could use another year of savings anyway to lower my payments, plus I think the new engine (already in the 2011 Cherokee) combined with the 6 speed tranny should boost fuel efficiency. I'd also like to see side airbags for the second row seats (my kids). I'm prayin' for dark blue to make a return as well.

Thanks for the link!

I would definately rather have a Chrysler engine than the Mitsu....just seems more fitting 290HP....Oh yeah!! Maybe some other refinements or improvements?? I have the newest jeep brochure comemerating 70 years and the evolution of the brand.....seems to almost hint at something new coming for the Wrangler in 2012(probably just the engine however)

I was just being sarcastic. We have been around and around with the 2012 thing so it was just a joke.
