WHOO HOOO...NEW 2012 Wranglers are here

I had the chance today to drive a new 2012 Rubicon.

First thought: Job well done. The new engine is one hell of an improvement over the last offering. the Slap stick five speed auto is a great addition as well. and I like the upgraded dash.

Not ready to run out and buy it yet. But I have my eye on it.

I am sooo glad they changed motors! Now I just hope that this one hold up to the abuse of being off-road. Did the price change much for the 2012's?

Price is up as normal. But you would have to expect that anyway. It's just nice to see that stupid motor and transmision that they also use in the minivan go somewhere else. ITS A JEEP...

The new motor is the same as they use on the Challanger capable of 315hp with very simple tweeking. and the new 5 speed automatic tranny is the Ram truck tranny with a new added slap stick that actually works. I put it into the slap stick mode and placed it in 3rd, sure enough it starts and stays in 3rd. same for 1st and 2nd. 4th and 5th and only there after the rig is underway an traveling over 35mph.

Pretty exciting concidering the sorry but I have to say it. "Stupid 07-11 powertrain offering"
let alone they added 4 doors and more weight...... ok i'm off my soap box.

IT'S a JEEP for crying out loud...

Time will tell but it's a HUGE step in the right direction.
