Correction! Latest from Pat:
Due to the factory being at 100% capacity 13 MY were shut of early and can no longer be ordered 14 MY ordering is "scheduled" to open June 5th. 14 MY production has a start date of July 22nd if I recall correctly.

For some reason everybody is being stingy with 14 information and won't release anything.

Thumbs up 2014 Jeep Wrangler Product update

I work for a jeep dealer, here are the changes:

Updated 6.5inch 430 Nav screen

Updated EVIC screen ( fuel economy, digital speed, etc ) similar to other chyrsler products.

Clear lens blinker lights on front grille

Sorry/Happy to say, no powertrain changes. No 8-speed. Some new colors, special editions through out the year

Comments like this are funny. It is 2013 after all. Driving with a 35"+ tire and a raised tire carrier in your rear window. A rear view camera makes sense.

You probably don't like leather seats and electric windows either?
Believe me I know where your coming from. I consider myself a traditionalist when it comes to my old cars. (a few of my 30's era Fords have nothing newer than 1953 on them)

However if your in the market for a 2013/14 model year vehicle why get 1960's era amenities?

Progress since 1941, interrupted by "tradition".

And OP. I am in the same boat as you. Although I did order a 10A instead of coming across one at a dealer. I waited late in the year to see if the '14s would come with something like a rear view camera or better stereo. Other than that there was no tipping point for me. So in your case. I would go 10A all the way.

Nope, sure don't. Neither of those would fare well in the Florida sun/rain. I rarely keep the doors on or top up. The way Wranglers were intended to be driven.

I love the red seats on the 10 year model though. Thanks
Honestly, a 8 speed tranny is the same as last years model with an additional band in it to add 2 gears. What would be cool to see is a CVT tranny that can produce enough torque in a Jeep.

Personally, I would go with the 2014, but that's probably because there isn't much that I find compelling about the 10A. The hood is cool, but I can get an AEV hood if I want to do so later, which I probably won't. Bumpers? I would likely replace them anyway.

If you like the features, then your mileage may vary, but I'd rather have another year newer with minor refinements and more kinks worked out...and as an added small benefit, it will be worth marginally more later on when it is time to sell.

Of course, I feel differently when there is a major change to the engine, tranny, or the overall model. I bought one of the last YJs available rather than buying one of the first TJs...and I held off on replacing my TJ for an extra year so I wouldn't be getting the first year of the new Pentastar and auto tranny...and am glad that I did.
