slow2run The 2017 model year, should give us the chose of a wrangler mini jeep, wrangler truck, and the normal wrangler versions, they should be lighter hoping get better fuel mileage ,and have the options of a 9 speed trans and a diesels engine + a new 3.2 penastar as well as the current 3.6. Note allpar.com has removed all ref to my first post not wanting to hurt wrangler sales. If you read the above posts, its was not needed, knowone wants to wait 3 years for the new wrangler redesign.

MMichetti Buy now. I'm on my second 2013 unlimited. Nothing but love for both.. Just had to have the 10a. I'll probably buy a 3rd.

Jeeperz Creeperz Here is the design for the stripped down smaller Wrangler.....Fiat is buying the factory plans for Samurais to save a few bucks....factory lift kits included. How about bringing back and rebadging Geo Trackers to save mpg..LOL

True...but the other half is "good things are lost from those who are late"

PirateHunter Buy now. If they have something you like, get it. I put off buying one for a few years and couldn't get the color I originally wanted. I was a little disappointed when I found out, but now I am very happy with my Rock Lobster.

It is too much fun not to get one when you can.

Oh, and by the way, I DID buy a YJ to tide me over until I could get a 4-Door. The YJ is still going strong and is loads of fun.

Omar Brannstrom Hi

It seems that 2014 export wranglers will get the new 3.0 Pentastar. Just speculation from me but with 8 speed auto, multi air, turbo and other new stuff it might get close to the pentastar 3.6 or over with lower fuel cost in the future.

"Three 2014 cars will get the 3.0 liter V6, all export versions (the 3.0 was developed primarily to avoid high displacement taxes): the 300C/Thema, Grand Cherokee, and Wrangler/Wrangler Unlimited."

It might be an option for US buyers, who knows.

Rumors and Future Chrysler Pentastar Engines

TOK On one hand, they brought back the Viper. On the other hand, they destroyed the Cherokee. Hmmm.

Maybe the 2017 Wrangler (debuting in summer 2016 like we've talked about for a long long time now) will have options like a CRD engine, no-leak solid roof or one piece roof, more towing, etc. etc.. who knows? If somebody is saving cash and wants to buy a new Wrangler only ONCE and drive it forever...waiting at this point might not be a horrible idea.
Conversely, the 2017 could be a unibody, without solid axles and a gutless wonder. Google the "Fiat Panda". Hopefully the Wrangler does not go in that direction.

I would be all for a smaller Wrangler, but not if it is like that. I won't drive something derived from something else named "Panda".

Totally agree, stumbled into my first Rubicon, and was the best decision I ever made. After 10 1/2 years and countless mods, I changed it out for a 11 Rubicon 2dr.

Do not wait for the next great thing, especially with a Jeep, because all you are going to do is rip off half the stock parts and mod it anyway.

why worry? It is a minor inconvienence at most. 1 day in the shop plug and play repair for any decent tech. I stopped reading the head threads when I realized so many people thought replacing a cylinder head was a big deal. It takes less skill to swap a cylinder head then it does to swap gears yet nobody thinks that is a big deal.

it_felt_so_good I just got a 2013 two weeks ago but it will be paid off before 2016. Might get the new design for 2017 & still keep the 2013. You only live once, so why not ?!

flharleycop Maybe in 2016 we will get a factory P/U like the JK Brute

Oh good Lord I'm sorry for the loss. For some reason, your post struck a cord; perhaps because its brutally true.

OP, buy the dang Jeep.
