2001 or 2012
Hi I'm new and need some advice so I figured this would be the best place to get it. I'm looking to buy a new Jeep Wrangler and not sure if I should get a 2011 or a 2012. This will be the first Jeep I've ever owned. So is there a big difference between this years model and next years??? All advice will be much appreciated. Thanks

New (to the jk) 3.6 Pentastar engine in the 2012. Also a new 5 speed in the automatics. Other that that, they are the same other than options like painted fenders and top on the rubicon, etc. There is a thread on here with lots of info on the 2012.

The 2011 has no balls at Fwy speeds. It seemed OK for around town to me though. Dealers have a huge stock of 2011's left for a very good reason, but you can get great deals and long 0% loans.

2012 if your going auto

2011 or 2012 if you choose the stick or 11 if you want a better deal.

If you do go 2011 with the auto plan on a tuner to change the shift points of the tranny-helps a great deal.

Also do a search, there is a bunch of threads pretty much asking the same question. Choose well :)
