Curious, what are the rumors surrounding revising the 3.6L?

Based on the past, it means Acid Yellow could be a special edition only color, that will not be shown until the special edition itself is shown.

From Milous's first post here, I would say 'none'.

There is a revision to the 3.6, but it will not be in the Wrangler this year.

One has to factor in, that is a rehash of info that is even older; much older.

It is offered on the 2016 Grand Cherokee. It was suppose to offered on the 2016 Wrangler too, but delay after delay for the engine, was causing the 2016 Wrangler to be delayed until November 2015. That delay finally got its use in the Wrangler cancelled (for that model year). With that, the 2016 Wrangler rubber banded back to September 2015.

I am kind of surprised that Jeep didn't try again for the 2017 Wrangler.

As to the JL, could be.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I wish Jeep would adopt the same paint system Ram uses. Just charge me a bit more for the color I want, if it is not on the current "standard" list. I was hoping for yellow or orange this year, but it looks like I might be finding out just how long I can run my Baja yellow. I like Hyper, but I use my Jeep for work, and that is just a bit much.

To me, Gobi has headed in the wrong direction. Would have loved to see a return to Sahara tan. Not happening. No more saying maybe next year. Not for the JK anyway.
