2017 Wrangler (Allpar Article)

The next-generation Jeep Wrangler is currently scheduled to debut in 2016, as a 2017 model, according to Allpar’s research and speculation. Sources within the company have told several outlets that Jeep is hard at work on a long-travel independent suspension for Wrangler, based loosely on a design first launched on the 1963 Jeep Wagoneer. This vehicle used variable-rate leaf springs in back, but were the first off-road vehicles to have independent front suspensions.

It's gonna be a body-on-frame station wagon. Just like nobody here asked for.

I bet the next thing we read is that it will be unibody.

I think this may increase the value of the the JK. At least for us enthusiasts. I know IFS has not been confirmed on the wrangler, but all roads seem to be leading to IFS. I hope this rumor is wrong.

The thing that makes me doubt any of this is that they still have the Renegade as an unknown and show the discontinued Patriot and Compass in the 2015 model year. Unless this article is old, its already full of bad info.

I'd be interested in seeing schematics of this new design of IFS. They said it doesn't lose ground clearance on a jounce. I'd like to see how this is done. This is one gripe of many IFS owners. It will still be harder to modify tho. If they could fit 35's stock as opposed to the JK's ability to hold 33's and the tjs 31's people wouldn't be too upset
