Quick note: Rescue Green and Sahara Tan are both available now. I haven't seen a 2012 Wrangler in RG, but the dealership has 2 Patriots, and I've seen a few Sahara Wranglers around.

Neither of those colors are currently available in the Wrangler.

2012 JKU Black, Soft Top. Next mods are a 2.5" lift, 35" Tires, and either 4.10 or 4.56 gears.

Rescue Green stopped back in 2010. Sahara Tan only made it onto a handful of 2012's, from what I remember reading on the interwebs the plant that manufactured that paint was affected by the tsunami in Japan last year and the paint that Jeep had on hand was all they were getting. So they had enough for about the first month or so of the run of 2012's. I fought and searched for 2 months trying to find a tan 2012 that fit my needs and finally in February gave up and bought my 2012 in black.

First Wrangler was a '87. Second Wrangler was a '97. Third Wrangler was a '07. See the pattern here? No way the next gen Wrangler is coming out next year as a '14 model. Won't happen.

'92 YJ - heavily modded
'96 ZJ - heavily modded
'05 KJ CRD Limited - 370 lb./ft. from a 4-cylinder and trail ready. Pure awesomeness.

Jeep is selling like people's heads are on fire and the only water is a JK so I agree and see no reason why we should expect a next Gen Wrangler before '16 or '17.

The '14/'15 figure was one suggested by Jeep's CEO, Mike Manley, in an interview about when the Gladiator's coming.

And while Wranglers have traditionally stuck to 10-year design cycles, car design cycles are becoming shorter and shorter.

But, more importantly, the biggest engineering challenges for Wrangler right now are to rework the platform to work with modern manufacturing techniques so they can increase the production capacity. Right now, the plant is running 100% capacity, and demand is still increasing for the Wrangler-the sooner they can release a new model that can be produced quicker, the better.

Either way, its a few years off.

Yeah, I mean, they even went as far as to totally skip the 1996 model year so they could label the TJ as a '97 model. It's the "lucky number 7" thing I guess.. I'll be shocked if the next gen Wrangler is anything other than a 2017 model.

What probably will happen though is that over these next few years, we'll see the Pentastar increase in horsepower a little, and if the WK2 CRD sells well next year they'll offer the CRD in the Wrangler by 2015. Those are very possible changes. And there will likely be a very special package offered next year for the 10th anniversary of the Rubicon model. Otherwise, the only changes we'll see are package changes, wheels, tires, cupholders, decals, just minor stuff.

The Rescue Green color was available in the Jeep Liberty, Compass and Patriot earlier this year. It is now scheduled out for the 2012 model year.

I heard that the Wrangler plant is running @100%. When I am at the dealership I think the paint is still wet when they sell them. Instead of messing with the body why not just make the existing plant larger. One thing I hope to see in the new wranglers is a lower price, a diesel, more model variations and if Jeep is getting heat about not being environmental conscious maybe a Prius powered wrangler to keep the greenies happy and us laughing at those individuals buying them LOL!

When you get knee-deep in a situation, floor it.

Turbo, preferably a diesel, with higher tow capacity - at least 5,000 lbs.

In the mountains, turbos keep the power up (naturally aspirated engines lose about 25% of their hp where I live), so a turbo diesel would be ideal. Otherwise, I'd prefer a turbo Pentastar to a V8 for fuel efficiency and elevation issues.

Jeeps are frequently used in the mountains, and for towing moderate loads, right?

Also, I'd love to see a waterproof interior option - like a boat - where you could leave the top off if it rains and not worry about all the fancy electronics and such. It's not that hard or expensive, really.

And keep offering the manual transmission!

Not likely on a vehicle with removable/soft top. Corporate lawyers will work hard to keep the rating low due to the "potential" for problems.

1st one- 1989 Cherokee Laredo. 12 great years
2nd one- 2001 Cherokee Limited. Got it before they were gone.

I just hope they don't screw it up like they have been with all the other models. Jeep needs to go back to the basics of a 4x4. Tough, rugged, and looks good with a few dings and dents to give it some character like the older Jeeps. These new ones look to fragile to be considered a 4x4. Just my opinion.
