Buy 15 now or wait for 16?

Thoughts? There is a 15 Altitude JKU exactly as I want about 100 miles away, or do I just order a 16? Seems like 16s are delayed.

Theres no word on the 2016 Altitude. I was contemplating the same thing and also 2016 wont take delivery until November this year. If u are in a time crunch get the 2015 you want. With 100 miles maybe you can get a good deal.

I'd get the '15. A) You know it's what you want and B) it's got the 100K powertrain warranty.

Get the 15. Right now the 16's are in limbo with what will be available in the new model year. If there is an Altitude that is what you want, just go get it. I ended up getting an order in under the wire last week because I wanted to make sure I got a Hard Rock and as I said the 16 information is just not released yet. Who knows what will happen this year with the models. Stay tuned.

Get it. Normally, I would advise waiting for a new model year, but in the case of the Wrangler it looks like just color/wheel/sticker changes, and nothing substantial will change.

In fact rumor has it the 730N is not going to be available, so if you wanted that nav unit there's another reason...along with a longer warranty.

Historically, how often do they release an 'altitude' model?

I believe 2014 & 2015 have been the only two years for Altitude Wranglers.

All of the 15s I would consider are gone. Going to wait and order a 16.

So, decision made then... I'm waiting for the 2016's as I don't want to buy a car and then have it be a model year behind a month or two after I buy it. The lower mileage (60K) powertrain warranty doesn't really concern me as my current vehicle has under 67K miles and it's 14 years old!

Thanks Milous. I'm guessing this puts the last nail in the coffin lid for Copper Brown Pearlcoat?
