That's huge news Milous, and good news at that. So you're one of the "chosen few" who got a peek at the new JL?
I think most are worried it will be a drastic change similar to the TJ/JK transition. By drastic I mean in a not so good way.

New or old manual transmission doesn't matter to me, as long as it's available across all engines/trims.
Crossing fingers this info comes out before the last JK order date. If there's no JL 6MT, really would need to pull the trigger on a 2017 JKU.

So at least that is happening, I am sure there were all kinds of engineering challenges to get one in a JK but I would have been all over it. I bought my JKU a lil brother Ram Rebel about two months ago and even though my JKU is only 2.5 years old the nav unit and interface is a serious trip back in time every time I drive the Jeep.

Interested to see how this whole new top system works out, sounds like some are fully removable and possibly some with the power top maybe be more fixed.

Taken from Autoblog. So is this some kind of unremovable roof line?

Saw this on Jalopnik today. Based on the spy photos gives a good idea of how subtle the change is.

re: 2018 Wrangler JL/JP Information Thread (OLD)

There are also "spy" pictures like this one of the turbo-4 "Hurricane", but my eyes are drawn more toward what's around the engine bay (hood config, latches, grill, headlights, battery, etc).
