wrangler varieties in 2016?

I was reviewing nextgen Jeep Wrangler info on allpar:

2014 Model-Year Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep Cars, Trucks, and Minivans

"Jeepís Wrangler carries on essentially unchanged until 2016 when it bursts onto the scene in three different forms"

Does anyone know what the "3 different forms" of the Wrangler are expected to be in 2016?

I'm hearing about a permanent hard top version. I'm afraid as government safety regulations increase, the Wrangler will start loosing some of what makes it so unique. It'll be a sad day if the removable top and doors someday won't be available.

Not sure why they say the wrangler will "burst onto the scene in 3 different forms." The 2-door has been around forever and the 4 door will have been around for nearly a decade at that point. So why not just say "a wrangler truck is planned for 2016"?

That would be awesome, in one way. All the older wranglers would be increasing in value. Kind of like older diesels increasing in value when the EPA choked out the 2007.5+ with a DPF and the rest of the BS that went with it.

But sad because we would lose one of the best aspects of the Wrangler

Why do you say that? It'll cost way less than a brute or a brute double cab because body and frames won't be customized by hand. It will all be automated. F150, Silverado, and ram all get pretty pricy. Even the Tacoma can hit 40k. I don't think it'll be more than that

Explain to me how this is possible, preferably without getting into politics or an anti-governent rant.

Plenty of changes have taken place over time that limit what manufacturers can build, I mean you don't see anybody driving a 2013 T bucket do you?

Of course, to say something is possible is not to say it is plausible, and I have no idea whether the poster you are responding to has any substantive basis to believe there are any impending safety regulations that would affect the current platform.

I have a feeling they won't do this. This was considered in the 80's and that's why there was an increase in Targas and T-tops because they weren't considered convertibles. If the wrangler, the only convertible to my knowledge that has a functional roll cage, could no longer be a convertible, there is no way mustangs, Camaros, or many other convertibles could continue to be made

I don't think the day is coming anytime soon, that I agree with. Still, there was a time when seat belt laws or helmet laws probably sounded ludicrous. I am still pretty shocked how many places force you to wear a helmet to ride a bicycle, that is something I never would have anticipated.

I was thinking a permanent hard top with panels like on the current Freedom Top, except all four seating locations, would be perfect for me. I don't want to bother taking off and storing the whole hard top usually, but the panels are easy enough to deal with, and I don't get the desire to expose your cargo to the elements, but that's just me and I know I'm in the minority on this board, lol.

The statement I made was just pure speculation, my opinion only. Through the years the auto industry has been forced to alter their products to meet regulations that have been deemed necessary for our safety. I don't have any knowledge of this even being an issue in the near future, but I don't see it being totally unbelievable either. Sorry if I upset anyone with my comments.

maybe its just me, but I see a full size jeep truck costing quite a bit... especially since its so new and how much people were already paying for the brutes.

After seeing the 2014 Cherokee, I am not as optimistic that Fiat wont screw up the next gen Wrangler and sink the entire Jeep brand in the process......

Where is anyone "forced" to wear a helmet to ride a bicycle?

Kids 14 and under are required to wear one in the county I live in, although the law is rarely enforced. Plus, most of the organized cycling events I ride in require helmets to be worn, regardless of age. I'd wear one anyway.

The question was where are they "forced". I have never heard of these ridiculous laws ever being enforced.

Well now you have. I live in a location where all bicycle riders are required to wear helmets and the laws are enforced.

No, I haven't. You haven't stated where that is. I want to make sure I stay away from a place that would have such ludicrous laws.

I live in Washington state. There are cities here where the laws are enforced.

You would if you tried to ride in one of the events where a helmet was required and you weren't wearing one. No helmet, no ride.

And it's not anymore ridiculous than a seatbelt law.
