Doh

"Dozer" like 'Dozer like Bulldozer !!!! AHA. Like the "yellow" jeep I saw once with the license plate "Tonka". The combo of yellow & black worked. Winter Chill may be plain ol' WHITE! Color would be your main identifying clue as to what year as you pass one. How about some of those very old colors: purple, flat paint...remember any odd colors long gone?

I dunno.

Personally, I have this mental image that it will be a blue-white mix..kinda like the blue in a glacier.

No, pearl white is their standard white color.

The glacier pic I posted is what I think their chill color will be.

You TALKED to a training rep. This is like the local beat cop that told me "no the pres. Motorcade isn't coming by here." three min later here comes the motorcade. They arnt gonna tell the little guy.

Don't shoot the messenger!! Hey cremaley if you thought I was shooting the messenger I really wasn't trying to. I just know that trainers don't have the info you and I are looking for. Hopefully no hard feelings.

I'm still holding out to trade in the commander on a JKU. I want this engine as much as the next guy.

Hey Pat: Absolutely no hard feelings. The only reason I posted the conversation was that a salesmen at dealer who is a good friend of mind told me that this Trainer is very reliable and "seems" to know what is going on. Like everyone else, I hope he is wrong and we do get the new Pentastar in 2012. Hope you sell the hell our of them!

Hey guys I just came from a dealer here in the Bronx and I couldn't reserve an allocation just yet. They took my info and said as soon as they know anything they'll call me and we can start the paperwork on the 2012's. They didn't even want to take my money lol. How's that for a change?

Ha! I was waiting for that response. This is just about as sure a thing as we're going to get. We have the CEO telling us at least twice, we have the old engine plant shutting down and we have reliable sources with great info telling us (like Milous and Pat).

The 2012 is getting the Pentastar. And thus we should all read AgtSunshine's prophecy

When do you think they will update the Jeep website and go official with everything? I am ready to buy now. I just need to actually see the colors and the engine and trans. Like closure. Then buy.

Website? I would guess August earliest. If you need to see colors, then you probably want to wait until they hit lots, unless you just want to see samples (not on actual vehicles) which may be in the next couple of weeks.

If I were Jeep, I'd hold my cards tight to my chest as well.......there are going to be a lot of '11 models left on the lot when everyone starts buying the '12's with the Pentastar and boasts about how great they are.

My wife's '11 GC has the Pentastar and it's a really great running vehicle.
It average's 21+ MPG with a mixture of 70% highway and 30% town driving.
Pulled a 4000 pound trailer 200 miles a couple of weeks ago and averaged 16.3 MPG with plenty of power doing it through the hills of southern Ohio.

I guess you people can't read. I never said I did not believe that the Pentastar was coming in 2012. I simply posted a report from a Chrysler Trainer. From now on, if I receive information contrary to what you guys believe, I will keep it to my self so as to not get ridiculed. I must say I was wrong. i though this was a Forum of open mined people. I guess not. Its one thing to attack the information, but quite another to attack the member. Maybe its a maturity issue.

Seems clear as day to me:

"I hope he is wrong and we do get the new Pentastar in 2012"

But as Jimmy stated, we're just having a little fun with ya, don't take it so seriously .
