The most reliable 2017 available will be in this thread.

I believe Milous, rather then an odd website link from Jan 2016.

Happy they're discontinuing Hydro. I have a 2014 and there are so many running around. I was hoping they'd only do it that year on the freedoms. Oh well. Still love it.

Totally agree about the '16 colors, it was probably the only reason I didn't end up ordering one.

Now the tough decision is going to be jumping on the last JK or holding out for a JL. I'll have to weigh the 2017 colors against whatever JL news appears in the coming months! I really like the pentastar, I wonder how they would upgrade it.

Milous...when would photos (real ones...not renderings or photoshopped ones) start surfacing on the JL? Would we be able to see it before the JK window closes?

2014 JK Hydro Blue Freedom Edition
I was planning on buying a Hydro Blue next year (last year of the JK), but found out in late February from a friend at Jeep that they were discontinuing it so I ordered a new Hydro Blue Rubicon, which will be here this week sometime!


FYI, they are going to have a blue for 2017, slightly brighter than Hydro but not pearl/metallic.

That could be cosmos blue from a few years ago. Don't think I've ever seen one in person. Looks good in pictures though.

Jeep has already announced that there will be a minimum of a 6 month period (overlap) where they will be assembling both new JK's (to be called Wrangler Classics) and the new JL.

So, as long as you don't procrastinate for too long after you see a JL in person, you will still be able to order a JK.

I asked that same question about it looking like Cosmos, he said similar but different - more of a lighter sky blue...that's all he could say.

Thanks! I just wasn't sure if they were going to cut the ordering window so short...like they did this year. I'm happy to know I still have a window of hope for that XPHR (yes...an extremely slim to zero chance).

XP (Xtreme Purple) is already on the dead list for '17. So, its closer to zero.

The word from Jeep is that Jeep isn't into "retro" colors like Dodge, and that's why XP was in limbo for like two years after the color test sample JK was run. Because of that, IMHO, XP is more dead than Mr. Spock; as dead as a red shirt crewman.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Anyone know whether the Willys Wheeler will continue to be offered as a trim level in 2017?

Also, do the dates in Milous' original post suggest that it's not possible to order a JK between April 16 and July 17? That seems to be a long time to keep the order book shut...
