...and from the FCA link Archer posted it appears that Sunset Orange IS real for '16.

Fell victim to the dealer "internet pricing" and we felt a little blind sided and walked. We have kicked ourselves since!

I got my vin yesterday, end in 113227. Promised my salesman I wouldn't bug him for updates more than once a month. Hopefully the next time we talk will be when he calls to let me know it's here.

Those photos you're viewing are not all 2016 models depicted. The JKU Sahara and Black Bear are identifiable 2016's, but the JK's...?

It's my suspicion that the Hard Rock shown is actually a 2015 Sunset Orange. I can't for the life of me figure out why they would build and promote an orange 2016 Hard Rock, and yet no one seems to know that they are producing an orange color again? Are they doing it in a secret lab?

I know for a fact that the Willys photos are from when the model (or "package") debuted in 2014. Those same photos carried over to the 2015 album, and now to the 2016.

No one know for sure if FCA is going to release more colors for 2016, but it is possible.

Does anyone know why it's so hard to order a Jeep From Canada?
Hey I am in exact same situation. I ordered roughly mid May from Toronto area, ordered a 2015 Wrangler Sport from Peel Chrysler Mississauga Ont

roughly 3 weeks later or so they notified me that my order can not be met and they assured me a 2016 for the exact same price

So my order now reads on work sheet as going through july 9 at midnight I believe, so the fact we ordered originally in mid May means nothing now I think.

I have a VON # and signed up here for the tracking, just said TBD so far

Hey for Canadian prices the promised priced to me is too good to pass up on.

Peel Chrysler specialises in bulk orders they undercut the smaller dealers, my little dealer 150 miles north of Toronto said they cant compete with the likes of Peel because they somehow have an arrangement were they can sell for almost no profit but still do well because of the bulk sales, whatever

any of that sound familiar ... maybe bulk orders will show up at deal;er before any tracking info? I have no idea...they tell me early October is when they expect it...they are just going by what has been the norm previous times

True, I was just targeting the Sunset Orange that appears to be a '16. Specifically images: JP016_010WR.jpg, JP016_011WR.jpg, and JP016_009WR.jpg. All have the tag "2016" and are dated ''09.01.2015".

I'm sure this is just a batch copy of previous year photos, but when you factor in Milous' post about colors (#1181 on page 99), it makes me wonder.

Let's hope that secret lab exists and sunset makes another appearance!

I'm also holding out hope for at least Granite to be released in October, can't wait until March. Anybody with info on colors? I'm not sure FCA knows at this point.

I'm in the same boat. I already cancelled my original order when I was having issues with my dealer and now I don't want to wait any longer than I have to.

I ordered from Peel as well. My sales guy isn't on top of my sale. I have to call and speak to Gil the mamanger to get any info.

joshua@curbsigns.ca shoot me an email, I'd love to chat about it a bit more.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Comparing the info from the 2016 owners manual/user guide to that of the 2015, it looks like Jeep bumped up the 2dr tow ratings to match those of the 4dr. So you can now officially tow 3500lbs with a 3.73 or 4.10 equipped 2dr.

2016 2dr Wrangler tow ratings:


2015 2dr Wrangler tow ratings:


I wonder why the change after all this time though? Especially seeing as the 2015 & 2016 are the same vehicle with no significant changes?

I wasn't ready in 14/15 to purchase, I am now...The 3 "available" new colors do not give me "the goosebumps" I have not seen the Rhino or Hyper Green in da flesh yet...The Green does look cool tho...

I've decided to do the wait and see what, if any, new/old color gets reintroduced (if i'm gonna spend the $$ i'm spending, i'm gonna get what i want) Maybe the elusive Plum Crazy makes in this year, as mentioned...
