That's correct, you have one week left if you want to order a 2016 Wrangler. After that, you can only get what's on or coming to dealers lots.

I wonder if this year's short ordering window is designed to keep dealer markup higher per vehicle. Usually the purchaser can wheel and deal on a car in the showroom, but when a vehicle is in high demand not so much. Only a theory.

Did the dates change to order a 2016? On page one it looks like we have until July to order.

Yes, page 1 is always the most up to date information.

Running long in the tooth with my current stable, but with FCA continually jacking up the price I have to debate sinking cash in the ones I have and waiting for the JL or clean house and get a parts clearing JK.

When might we hear about any new 2017 colors? I may hold off on going HYPERGREEN if I knew what might be headed our way.... :cough: Rugged Brown :cough:

My thoughts exactly, J2fold...I was primed to finally order this spring but am so uninspired with the 2016 colors that I decided to enjoy a few more months of no car payments and see what 2017 brings color-wise. I'd be super-geeked for Copperhead, Mango Tango or something similar.

While nothing is know yet, from the past, while we get to see the new colors, ordering one is usually delayed. For example, we all knew about Mojave Sand and Hyper Green for 2016MY last September, but these colors are only starting to come out now.

In other words, even if you get super-geeked over some new color for 2017MY, you might have close to full year of no car payments before actually getting to drive one home.


And then, there are always those unexpected surprise colors, like XP and Sarge for 2016MY.

Was gonna order a 2016 Unlimited HRR this past fall but decided to wait and get the last model year of the JK instead. Looking forward to all the new info and hopefully some fresh colors.

Its still unclear if the JK's to be built in 2018 (along side the new JL's), will still be referred to as 2017 models, or instead be 2018 "Wrangler Classic" models.

Interesting! Thanks for the info. I am looking at resale value down the road. End of year models are usually better. I'll be waiting and seeing what happens.
