Options on 2011 Laredo vs. 2012 Laredo

Does anyone know if the 2012 Laredo package (non-X) has changed from 2011 to 2012? I'm curious if the remote start, ipod interface and bluetooth were standard on the Laredo package and if any of that stuff has changed to 2012.

Thanks,

Mine has the $410 MSRP "Uconnect VoiceCommand with Bluetooth" which seems to include just the
U-connect with Bluetooth
USB port for remote devices in armrest
and Auto-dimming rear-view mirror with microphone

Also has the 26E "Laredo E Group" and when I went to the Jeep page, both were required to get the towing package. Does anyone actually pay MSRP ?

BTW be aware that with the V-6 towing group, 2WD cars get the standard suspension and 4WD gets rear load levelling for the same price. They are really playing some games.

Anybody know how to get the autodim to quit dimming at night ? Mirror is nearly useless in low light tconditions.


One of these is a diesel.

Push the button on the bottom of the mirror next to the green light

OP said they wanted the remote start and U-connect. The $995 package is the only way to get remote start in the Laredo E without the Laredo X upgrade ($5,600). It just happens the Security and Convenience package includs the $410 U-connect with bluetooth package. My auto-dimming mirror works fine, would not be without it. Actually, I miss not having the exterior auto-dimming mirrors on my Laredo X (only available in Limited model and above). And where I live, I would not be without 4x4. That's the primary reason I traded my FWD Ford SUV for the Jeep, besides getting an over-all nicer ride. I am probably the reason this has been one of the least snowy and warmest winter - so far in the midwest. The 4" snowfall last night was the largest for this season.

I absolutely need the towing package.

If I could have gotten the 18" wheel package, 430N media system and backup camera in the Laredo E, I would have purchased that over the Laredo X and saved a few thousand $. I really did not need or want the leather interior, but I am making due....

Lets just say I got a very good deal on the Laredo demonstrater I first drove and bought four days later: right color and has the towing package. Have added the side rails that a foot does not fit unless sideways and sill plates. Thinking about Katzkins and Body colored grille.

Dealer had added more tinting and cannot see anything out the back at night even with autodim mirror off so may need to add a rear camera.
