I'm still glad I have a 2010. Can't take away the wheeling I've done, and wheeling I'll do between now and 2012...

Awesome.

It will definitely be paired with a new auto. It has too much torque for the current 4spd.

The 6-speed manual will carry over I think.

Yup, I'll definitely be looking to trade in the 2010 Flame Red Sport for a 2012 Cosmo's Blue Rubi. Oh baby!

What's the perks of the pentastar other than the horses?

Any word on upgrading gears, etc??

I'm pretty pleased I traded in my 2008 Sahara 2 door. My main problem with it was the fact that the 2 door has no real space in it and is impossible to get in and out of.

I would have traded in for a 4 door, but I really wanted a different engine. Looks like my wait may be over soon! Lets hope they get a good transmission in there.

The Pentastar is quite a bit more fuel efficient than the 3.8.

I'll believe it when I see it...
