It really looks like most of the good gear is not being released until next year.
I think the Summits already have puddle lights in the mirrors. My Overland does.

Soon there will be no incandescent or HID lights on vehicles anywhere. I can't wait.
I can replace a round 7in or dual 5 3/4in headlights for a about $105 for duals each and $40 each for 7". I can get better patterns and better light dispersions light out of 7" halogen than I can get out of 7" LED. I have had H4 bulbs last for 7 years or more. Cost of 7" round headlight for a Wrangler is substantially more and if we are talking BMW, Audi or Porsche we are talking a grand. Its not LEDs that expensive since they are made offshore but the headlight housing which must be replaced if damaged by a stone or in an accident. Sorry LEDs do fail. A 60w light bulb for my house used to cost less than a buck. A similar LED replacement bulb at Home Depot will cost me anywhere from $13 to $120. I know they last longer and use less energy but thats way too much money up front. Money that can better be spent on single malt. Just FYI LPs still sound and my preamp and power amps are powered by tubes.

That is a few years away, and probably only really make sense for headlights, not all the rest of the lights, much like HIDs are great for headlights, but don't make sense anywhere else. The lasers are very similar to LEDs anyway.

Incandescents are dead.

I heard that Sergio was rumored to say, "I want Jeeps with frickin' laser beams attached to their hoods." Had to keep with the movie quote theme.

I want HIDs and lasers on the back to discourage tailgating.

Re: Changes for 2015?

The 2015 should have an LED message display on the rear hatch. When people tailgate, a message would flash: "TOO CLOSE, DAMMIT!" And the center console touch screen will let you type custom scrolling messages on a keyboard. Messages like, "Hey cutie!" or "Follow me to the offroad trails" or "Learn to use a turn signal, moron" could be user-stored in memory for quick retrieval.

... and can't release it in the US yet due to some antiquated DOT laws. They are lobbying to have those laws changed though.

Not really. You gotta save SOMETHING for the new, upcoming Jeep. Rumors floating around are reporting 4 doorhandles, a 7 slot grille, windshield wipers, a 10 speed automatic, and a 5 wheel drive system. On demand, the 5th wheel is hydraulically lowered to help out during situations where the vehicle is high-centered. It's powered by an electric motor.
