we have been debating on holding off picking up a 2011 in anticipation/hope for a different engine getting put in the wrangler. i guess we will be waiting a year to get my wife a 2012 instead. 10-12 months more of thinking about all the fun mods i get to do!

305 vs 202 ! How are they gonna dump all the 2011's?? It's not even a matter of price...I'm waiting. I calc'd deprec and all and it just isn't worth buying a 2011 to trade in when they come out. Thought of leasing, but you're locked in for 3 years so that's out. I agree with you all...will just have to wait - it'll be more then worth it for that horsepower.

Now, I heard it could be sooner...it's just a matter of dumping a warehouse full of 3.8 engines first.

305? I heard it was going to be 450hp! There is exactly 2,342 3.8's stacked up in the warehouse right now. As soon as that warehouse is empty, they'll start putting the 3.6's in the JK and they'll get at least 500 hp and 40 mpg.

Id say 40 is pretty ridiculous for a brick with wheels as well.

Well..... With all this solid information, I'm going to wait...

When you figure 500hp in a 4K+lb Unlimited, now that's a good hp/weight ratio... Oh, and the 40MPG, why would I buy anything else

I don't get the hate by current owners for people who say they're waiting for the Pentastar. It's almost like you guys are jealous that you're stuck with an underpowered pig and we're not.

My 2012 Wrangler is going to be bad ass!

Not jealous at all. It's just that nothing is official yet and the claims are pretty wild. The 3.6 is in the GC now and it's 290, not 305hp. Everyone claims they "heard" it's true. A year ago everyone "heard" it was going to be in the 2011. Will it be better than the 3.8? No one really knows yet. According to the charts the engines are very comparable. The switch is being made for economy of scale. One V6 instead of multiple ones. A more modern engine to carry the fleet forward. Everyone seems to think the 3,8 was new. It's been around for a long time and is due to be replaced. I'm very happy with what I have. Putting the 3.6 in the 2012 or 2013 won't change that.

Everyone calm down!

There is NOTHING in Chrysler's 3Q/10 report that says this engine is coming.

This is the wire release:
Chrysler Group LLC Reports an Operating Profit of 9 Million in the Third Quarter; Company Revises Guidance Upward for Full Year 2010 - Business News - redOrbit

From that wire:
"In October, Chrysler Group revealed that the new Pentastar V-6 engine, with improved fuel efficiency, more power and reduced emissions, is slated to be available across 13 vehicle models by 2013. Introduced in the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the new V-6 will be available in the 2011 Chrysler Town & Country, 300 and 200, as well as the Dodge Charger, Avenger, Durango and Journey, gradually phasing out seven V-6 legacy engines. The engines are produced in state-of-the-art facilities in Trenton, Mich., and Saltillo, Mexico"

It *could* happen in MY12 or it could not be until MY13. Nothing is confirmed.
