Looks like Duckogram and Joe GA had/have an "Early" 2012, probably made before ~ Jan 1 2013 with the 15500 pin box.
It seems major changes are made part way the model year, somewhere around Jan 1. For example the newer front cap on the Silverback was introduced part way through the 2014 model year.
The brochure link posted by wmtire (above) says 2012 pinbox = 15500 and the specs provided from brochure by cbvp say 2012 pinbox = 18000. Early model and late model within the same model year.
You can look at the bottom of the last page of a brochure for a date. Is the year before the model year (early model) or the same as the model year (late model).
Progress (new features) is good when you get it
and not so good when you are a bit early to get it.
You spend your money and take your chances.
Joe, I agree 2108 lbs cargo capacity is not enough.
When comparing actual weight stickers to brochure weights, it is common to see they actually are 1000 lbs or more heavier than what the brochure says.
I wonder if the weight difference is the options only or also the "mandatory options" like the Explorer Package in 2012.
