Yes! May be a Hellcat version of JK? Similar to the Ram TRX.

And the Trailcat (this is Jeep, not Dodge) will be a $99 option on the Sport.

Let me get some work done and I'll see what I can do. Not sure I can get them today, but tomorrow for sure.

I think it is from 18K to 13K, not 12K. And I think they may rationally have lower expectations on possible top end 2017 trims unit demand by late winter early spring. A lot of stuff about the 2018 would be leaking which will cannibalize some proportion of high end sales for anyone who can wait. Yes, first year vehicles are not always the best bet, but a certain part of top end buyers are already not "value" buyers and will attach per se value to the newest thing if is just around the corner.

Maybe you and I, and many here would be value buyers in say May -- July, cautious about a 2018, but some people for certain would be buying HR or Recon as a status purchase, this is a known factor as part higher end trims for some buyers. Some of those people are going to be tempted instead to have the bragging rights of a 2018 in fall of 17.

My guess is some of the timing of the "Recon" is in part because excitement on 18 will start to build.

Thanks that is what I thought, net of 13K not 12K. Not so much of a drop considering later in the year some of the people motivated by status or simply having the newest/best will likely hold off.

When they are showing those "new" Recons most of the talk will be about 2018

2018 Wrangler already has many times more press mentions than actual 2017 press and that is going to increase.

As I noted, a factor for some potential top end buyers and not a factor fo others -- just way more of a factor than other recent years

Really good points. I must have mistyped 12k...I'm not that bad at math.

But I agree about many high end models being status purchasers, I just didn't factor that in; the same goes for attrition from the official announcement of the '18.

That anticipation of those status buyers is probably why most HRs on dealer lots, near me, seem to be configured with every single option, one of which is an auto transmissionódeal breaker for me. Saharas also seem to get loaded up with the bling.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I feel like many people will be in the same boat as me...want a Hard Rock, but will likely wind up waiting for the JL equivalent after it's officially unveiled. I'm in no rush, but have the itch to upgrade.
