Allpar is the National Enquirer of the auto world.

I don't believe anything they publish any more than I would believe that a reality game show host can become President.

Re: 2018 Wrangler JL Information Thread

No new info on the 2018 JL? Will the 2019 JL get the diesel in the US or are we going to be forced to wait yet another year to 2020?

The United States Environmental Protection Agency just accused FCA of cheating on diesel emissions testing. Say goodbye to any US diesel Wrangler now and forever.

While that might sound a little 'extreme' to some, you may be correct on this.
I believe Volkswagen suspended future sales of most (all?) of their turbo diesel equipped vehicles after going through their whole debacle as well.

FCA has denied it but I would say it will cause an overhaul and further diesel delays if not already. Who knows....

I am not liking the turn signals on the fender flares at all. So many people add aftermarket flares, with the lights being there it will be difficult. Probably be an aftermarket grill made asap to correct this..

I think folks are going to dislike more the lack of a soft top option. I hear since it doesn't meet federal standards they are doing away with it.

Anyone know if that is the case?

That has been reported by reputable sources for a long time now. There apparently is going to be some sort of optional power canvas top (think sliding canvas sunroof only) that Milous reported a while back, but the traditional folding soft top appears to be gone. If you want one, better buy a JK (I did).

Yes, VW dieselgate broke in Sept 2015 so all diesel car sales are suspended, new and used. I believe 2009 through Sept 2015. They are supposedly working on a "fix" but nothing yet. So in July 2016 they finally opened a portal and you could opt for the fix or buyback. They valued your car at what it was worth as of Sept 2015 plus restitution $$$. I believe you have until Sept 2018 to opt for the buyback. So basically your cars value doesn't depreciate. They have dollar amounts to mileage brackets so you don't want to drive so much you fall into the next bracket as they reduce your dollar amount. Also the car has to be able to drive under it's own power onto the lot. So that means you're praying the car doesn't get totaled or stolen. We had to wait until Nov for the judge's court ruling for the actual start of the process. So back in July my husband said screw the fix, we're just doing the buyback, that's when we decided what new vechicles we'd be getting. My 2010 Jetta went back in Dec and DH got a Silverado crew cab. His Jetta wagon goes back Feb 2 and my JKU Sahara has been built and just about to ship. On Dec 21st we had his car approved for buyback and the earliest date was Jan 26 but I opted for Feb 2 because you gain new mileage at the begining of the month and we need it due to the higher mileage on the car. Our buyback specialist told us VW has rented about 2,500 warehouses/lots around the US and the cars are hauled from the dealerships right away. We will be so glad when this is done.
