2018 Wrangler JL/JP Information Thread (OLD)

Courtesy of another site....just in case no one has seen them yet. A lot of vinyl camo which definitely helps obfuscate the new design. Booooo!

I posted this in the JL section, but it hasn't gotten much response due to the fact that there is limited activity over there.

Hard to tell due to all this camo but looks like evolution then revolution ... which I think is good.

I still like the style of the '76 CJ-5 that I had years ago best. The JK that I am ordering is still the classic form as I see it. Any departure from the original is messing with a good thing (us old school fans are stubborn in that way).

Hmm, the top choices sound interesting. I really can't wait for the JL to be released!

Good news for all the top options. Hopefully a way to drive with back glass open. Interchangeable tops sound like Renegade systems with two materials. Thanks.

I've seen it... "evolution" would be most accurate. Cosmetic changes are minimal and more subtle. Side-by-side with the current model, the average person may have to look hard to see the changes.

So, the JK Wrangler Classic will be called a 2018 model, not an extended 2017?

If JK production ends up being extended, it would continue as a 2017 model. There seems to be conflicting reports/opinions as to how long exactly JK will be extended. Some say production will end in September '17, and other sources have said it will continue for several months past the launch of the new 2018. It may come down to how much 2017 inventory is in the pipeline at the time of the changeover.
