re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

New to Jeep here.
My son's 16' Sahara was just vin numbered.
Any idea of when to expect delivery?
Thanks.

To the above poster, direct injection will be a major bump in power. My wife's 15 Denali gained over 40 lbs in torque by simply changing injection spray from the intake to the combustion chamber..

Page 1 suggests that 2016s wont begin the build process until Sept 8th. Since ordering opened July 9th, I would venture to say you'd be some time after that.

My question is, how does Jeep determine which order to build the 2016s? My order was #99 from my dealer for 2016s. I do not know how many of those orders were stock, and how many were custom like mine though.

His dealer told him that now that its serialized, it may be sooner rather than later, and could be August.
Might just be another clueless dealer.

The dealer also said that sold orders with names attached are built first over any dealer inventory purchases. He went on to say that he still has 15's coming with over 8 months of age on the order.

I'm trying to order my wrangler, but the dealer is saying that they don't see the 730nav as an option. Any idea when it may be available to order? Thanks.

Are you sure your order was the 99th at your dealer or do you have a document (POC) with the wording priority 99. A properly ordered and processed customer order should show a priority of 1. Sometimes people leave dealer with a 99 because it hasn't been accepted into system yet but it should be a priority 1 once accepted. A sold order has higher priority than dealer stock. The difference in delivery between the two can be significant.

Just thought it was unusual that you said 99.

Not an expert by any means but been following the process for over 2 years now and have read a bunch.

My dealer said that it might become available again. He couldn't think of a reason they would have not included it this year, but also had not heard anything about it being discontinued, just not available to order currently.

Yeah, I thought I read somewhere that it would be available later. I guess just a waiting game now.

"Rumors" is the key word. I don't think you'll see DI until next generation.

I ordered my Jeep over the phone, while logged into a virtual meeting to watch the dealer's screen. He pointed out the available allotments, etc. Then showed me that this was Order Number 99 generated by that dealership for 2016 Wranglers. I saw no priority number attached, but very well could have missed it.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Slightly off topic, but is the general opinion that the next generation will debut sometime next summer? Or, will there be a 17 MY?

Aside from being excited for my sons 16', I'm going to be all over a next gen Sahara if it's available with a diesel option.

It's listed to be available at some point as part of the Connectivity Group, Rubicon only, no ETA at this time.
