re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Been saving for 2 years in anticipation of the 75th Anniversary Edition Jeep! Hopefully a special edition Rubicon! This will be my 10th (and possibly last) Jeep. I will be checking this forum regularly for uppdates and from Milous, Pat, and others for info on the 2016 Jeep. Currently Jeepless

From other posts by Milous, the 75th Anniversary Edition, might not be out until next spring (early spring of 2016). And usually, we don't get the details until shortly before any of the special editions come out.

Well...I guess a few more months won't matter at this point. (Yeah...right!)

Isn't it true that the Anniversary Editions are generally on the lower level models? Don't think we'll see a 75th HRR. I was hoping for a 75th HRR

Eh, I wanna say the 70th was Sahara based or essentially a Sahara optioned Sport with badges. The HRR is just a carried on 10th Anniversary Rubicon, however, so maybe that can give you some hope?

Also worth keeping in mind that profit margins increase with each option box ticked (hence the proliferation of luxury-equipped trucks) and it stands to reason that Jeep could attempt a couple different directions with the 75: most expensive Jeep ever produced, or a throwback, stripped to the core off-road model. The latter wouldn't be forced to live with a 50hp 4 cylinder engine and canvas wrapped steel bars for seats...but could lose carpet and what have you.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I'd love to see some special editions with different color leather seats or maybe offered as an option with a Sahara or Rubicon. I loved the red leather in the 10th Anniversary Rubicon, but I was in the market for a blue or orange jeep at the time (red leather wouldn't have exactly meshed together). A darker blue or forest green leather seat would look awesome if paired with the right exterior colors.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

So I'm fairly new to this and was wondering how on point is this information usually? I would guess dead on but checking anyway

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I suppose being 3 months out from the production start date I shouldn't be getting too excited, but HOLY LORD I AM EXCITED!!! I have heard from multiple sources that Rescue Green Metallic is going to make a comeback this year. Does anyone have any info on that? Also, any ideas on what color Rhino really is? Solid or Metallic? Anyone?

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Last year the info was spot on - for the new colors, etc. The only thing that never materialized was rumor of a Special Edition - Plum Crazy colored rig. They are also good about noting whether information is preliminary/subject to change - or more reliable/set in stone.

Hoping there is more info on colors soon...

Rugged Brown... Lime Green... ???

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

A guy on wrangler forum was just told by Jeep that 2015 ordering closes 11 June. Wonder if they don't know what they are talking about (jeep rep) or if it is true does that mean that 2016 ordering will open far ahead of production start up in Sept. Hopefully some clarification comes soon.
