I just picked up my new 2015 Rubicon 6 speed and would swear the ones I test drove felt a whole lot faster. I am not getting on it all that hard as it is brand new but it seems like under 4,000 rpm the Jeep is a total dog. I am curious as to how much peppier it may feel and how long that may take.
I am going to break it in pretty carefully as I simply prefer to do that but I would think with nearly 300 hp and 265 pound feet or torque it would feel livelier. Maybe issue number 2 below has just left a bad taste in my mouth.
Other than that, the Jeep is pretty cool, minus the defective stereo. The unit will not connect with a phone and voice commands are not being accepted. The dealer thought it may be the microphone so into the shop it went and they replaced the mic from another Jeep. That made no difference so they have traced it back to the head unit or at least that is what they said. So unfortunately I have to drive from Wyoming back to Seattle on my fantasy trip with a stereo that won't connect to my phone AND will randomly switch from AM, to FM, to my iPod. I never thought about testing these items prior to signing on the dotted line so add this to your checklist of things to do before you sign.
