I hope not. I'm probably going to order a 2016 and it would make my happy to change nothing.

There are newer rumors are pointing to Jeep is giving up and abandoning that change. Seems it might not be not ready for production yet.

The clue to watch for, is the actual last-day to order a '15.

Hopefully 2016 will bring out some better colors...my vote is for them to go retro with "Spruce Tip Green"...with the white stripe of course...

You wont know until later this summer - The 2016's are delayed. From what I was told it is a financial decision related to the 2015 model year and CAFE. Extending the 2015 Wrangler production saves them money.

I would think it would be nice to simply offer tops in colors other than black or body. White would be nice (as you show), as would be saddle to match the interior (if you so inclined to do that).

Now this makes the most sense of all.

Regarding colors, 2015 was a pretty good year what with Baja, Sunsest and Tank. 2013 was probably the best year for unique colors and 2014 was a much more subdued year. It'll be interesting to see where 2016 lands.

Seriously? Actually the "future" information on that site has been about 99% accurate over the years, moreso than any other source. More exclusive advance "first" info has been posted there than anywhere else. "Unconfirmed" is typically noted where applicable. It's important to remember than sometimes plans/features CHANGE or are delayed prior to a vehicle being released, which doesn't make the prior information "inaccurate".

Some of the information listed for future models on this page has not been "officially" confirmed, meaning that it may be preliminary, rumored, speculative and, on rare occasions, slightly inaccurate. Some information may also consist of educated guesses from the webmaster.

Really hoping this is true.
Early advance info (~a year ago) pegged the Wrangler as getting the upgraded stop/start engine for the 2016MY; the engine launch date was pushed back and is now tentatively scheduled for the 2017 model year.

The Grand Cherokee will be the first vehicle to get the 3.6L PUG with ESS, launching in late November.

I think AZGAMD got confused and was referring to the inaccuracy of the company site (jeep.com) during model year turnover not the info from WKJeeps or this forum. Anyone who has been around knows the advance info we get through this forum or WKJeeps is either spot on or clearly highlighted as preliminary or not yet solid etc....

That would be pretty nice to have. My previous SUV had stop/start, and while I am sure it doesn't save a lot of gas, it was somewhat comforting to know that you weren't wasting gas at longggggg red lights.

Some export Wranglers already have a stop/start engine.
