Sure, anyone can dream! Not trying to rain on his parade at all, just trying to prepare him for potential disappointment. Like I mentioned, I hope he DOES get it when stated, that would be awesome! All good...

2106 supposedly have a shorter warranty. If you can find what you want on a dealer lot (or have a dealer to dealer exchange to get what you want), then you may as well go with a 2015. Prices probably went up for the 2016, but I'm not positive.

If you can't find exactly what you want, you need to determine what the option(s) is/are worth to you vs a shorter warranty. For us, the warranty didn't matter as we don't drive a huge amount, so ordering a 2016 to get 100% what we wanted was the smart move.

Now showing 9/14. Subject to change. Also, while official production launch is 9/08, they will probably run a batch of 2016s the week prior, as has been done many times in the past.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

any info. on Canadian orders ..when will they start progressing? Sad (from my end) that orders placed months after mine are progressing to D1 status. Got the VIN about a month ago...so at least they "plan" on building it is all i know. This factory order has been the biggest disappointment...wasn't how I expected my first jeep purchase to go...rant over.

Yeah, that's what my dealer told me too. Either way, for me, a false date is better than no date at all. Getting to Sept will be easier thinking it will be delivered soon.

I placed my order here in Canada on 07/09, and I don't have anything. People ordered way after me in the US, and theyre getting delivery dates.

Milous, will Canada follow a different date to start production?

Ordered my 2016 Jeep Unlimited Sport on 7/12/2015 and got a text from the dealer today letting me know that my jeep should arrive on 9/12/2015. Super excited for its arrival and subsequent topless trips.

On this Forum and another you have helped keep my expectations down Thats good. That way i'm not angry come October when I possibly still won't have it. But if it comes sooner? Nothing but happiness. But still... dude... Bash my hopes in why don't you (Kidding!)

Milous, will Canada follow a different date to start production?
The majority of D1 assignments for MOTS members just happened today (8/14). U.S. and Canada production typically starts at or very near the same time. No worries, even someone who is already in D1 could have their vehicle built before or after someone who has not yet reached D1 status (and vice versa).

In other words, vehicles are not necessarily built by date ordered. Early orders van be built "last", and "last" orders can be built "first".

Hmmm, *maybe* someone could 'bribe' Archer to punch a couple of buttons on the line computer to program a few Canada models ahead of the U.S. ones .
