That makes 2016 the exclusive Mojave Sand year. I'm ok with that.

I guess that is what makes Sarge and XP so very special.

Plus, there was never even a hint that they would ever be offered on anything else.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

2015 was a better year than 2016 for the Wranglers. They ruined the Sahara with all the chrome inserts and darkening the wheels. They put out way too many special models, each having only a slight variation making it too hard to even find a specific special model in the right color with even coming close to having the right options on a dealer lot.

I ordered my '15 JK in August of 2014 and the same '16 model built with the same options is around $3,000 more MSRP. And the colors in '15 at least offered an orange and yellow version. Extreme Purple finally coming to fruition was the '16 year highlight for me (though I still love my Hydro Blue better).

I'm stoked to see what Jeep will do for the final year of the JK.

I was hoping that Sarge and Xtreme would spread to all models like Anvil did after being offered exclusively on the 10th Anniversary. I think the colors that aren't available on all models shouldn't detract from the ten total colors that are offered at one time. (i.e. We lost Tank to get Sarge but Sarge was only offered on 75th model. ). I think Xtreme and Sarge would have sold a lot of units in other models of Wranglers.

They only have so many paint lines at the plant and it takes up to 2 months to change over the colors, that's why they have to get rid of one color to add a new one.

Real hard to find reliable information on the 2017 colors, according to this link Mojave Sand will be an option.

That looks more like info about the 2016 model year. Colors are 2016 and the olive interior was introduced this model year, too.
