Yes, globally: 1,300 2-door and 5,750 4-door. Grand total = 7,050.

They will build about the same amount of "Big Bear" editions for the 2017 model year.

Interesting in blackbear that is about 18.5% two door, whereas hardrock 2016 is 10% two door.

I wonder what the percentage of total 2doors have been across trims, what the trend has been the past ten years, and what it portends for 2017 and the JL.

Something like maybe 50:50 at the beginiing of JK to 20:80 or less now across all trims?

I also wonder what the trend has been on manual trans, and what 2017 demand might portend for long term JL

Both of those I think in any other vehicle would be at significant risk of simply being cut. In wranger not so much. I started strongly in favor of MT and 2door in my 2017 decision but it got closer as I looked at serious lower safety for 2door. If we did not have another vehicle, which is awd and large ,it would have been very hard to justify a 2door JK for us. With manual trans I think 2017 maybe last year to rationally get one for many buyers, as auto trans advantages in safety and mpg over manual will likely be clearer in JL.

When I ordered our Black Bear my wife insisted on a MT saying its not a jeep if it doesnt have a stick. She also wanted a 2 door, saying a 4 door is not a jeep its a SUV.
kid is 20 now and has his own jeep so plenty of room for her and I, and the dog.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

as I'm new to this thread, I've been skimming thru the thread on the colors for the 2017. did I miss when they are going to offer the Gobi or Chief colors for order? When you go to the website those are not options yet? Much help is appreciated as I'm wanting to order a 2017 Wrangler but would like to know if they will be out sooner than later. Thanks!!

No one knows yet.
All we know is "late availability".
If I had to guess I'd say January.
Jeep doesn't even have the 2017 info on their website yet and 2017's are already hitting dealerships.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Coincidentally, I just heard from my dealer yesterday. I have been waiting for Jeep to release the color Gobi too. According to the factory rep. it will be after the first of the year. So no change, no firm date, no help at all.

Milous, do you think the Recon will be in Red Rock territory when it comes to price?? I would assume with those projected numbers it would be closer to the Hard Rock.

I'm anguishing over getting a HR now, or rolling the dice on a Recon..

Thanks!
