I would say odds are high for WK3 in 2016



Vehicles will always refresh or redesign every 4-5 years though and the WK2 came when again? 2011/2012.. so 2016 is right on track

So 2017 for the WK3 if they stay on track? Nice. I can live with this.

Thanks Milous!

I was lucky enough to be that one because of when I ordered etc.

My dealer has told me they have had 10-15 others ask about it but they can't get another until next year.

So my advice is to go major city only, and ask if they have already ordered one for anyone. If they say yes, you won't have that good a chance of getting one. Dealers won't be getting more than one in most cases for Canada is what I have heard.

Hell, some Canadian orders were made on Jan 15th when the banks opened and they still haven't been scheduled for production.

It's a waiting process but hard work and searching and you might just find yourself with one! Good luck man!
I wouldn't believe the one per dealer sales pitch. I was in the same boat as purpleman back in 2011. I was told by every dealer in Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Saskatoon, and Winnipeg that they would be lucky to get one order in. As time progressed I monitored the jeeps each dealer got (through Milous's help) and every single dealer I had talked to get 2-8 jeeps in 2012. The one dealer in Regina that I had originally ordered with told me they had to make specials deals with vans and darts just to get my jeep and it would be the only one they would get. When the dust settled that dealership ended up getting 4 SRT's in 2012.

Purpleman get on the phone and start calling every dealer in AB, SK, MB. I did that back in 2011 when the first wk2's were coming out. I was lucky and found one in Saskatoon that I bought for MSRP.

Be very carefull on where you start putting deposits down. I was burnt by a dealer in Winnipeg and lost half my deposit.

I was at both Regina dealerships this weekend and both have all their jeeps spoken for, so I was told.
