I was advised today that Rubicons with luxury package come with colour-coded fenders but NOT hard top roof. All Rubicons have black roofs.
Overlands are the only ones that can be specced with colour-coded roofs. Check with your local dealer.
Yea, I think it might be on the road price including everything. The pricing on their website says so too albeit couple hundred more.
Good luck on your order, I'll mull it over for a bit and see how we go. What dealer did you go to? I went to the Artarmon one.
Definitely 70k for the Rubicon petrol, they even wrote it all down for me. Pic below. Diesel Rubicons were unknown date.
They were pretty sure you only got hard top roof and it's the only roof available. Reason for Rubicons being delayed to July is to do with ADR compliance of the steel front...
Rubicons won't arrive Australia till July at the earliest. Got some pictures and info here: https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/australia-jl-wranger-information-on-20th-july.11730/page-4#post-567427
Went to test drive the JL Overland (Sahara) today. Rubicons aren't available in Sydney showrooms and first orders won't arrive till July 2019 at the earliest, that's quite a wait...
Mixed feelings about the test drive, like it a lot but don't absolutely love it... It looks pretty great...
AU website updated today: https://www.jeep.com.au/wrangler-jl/exterior.html
32-inch off-road, all-terrain tyres on Rubicon.
LED headlamps are available on Overland and Rubicon.
Wheel options for each trim.
Soft or hard roof options. No third Sky One-Touch option.
Same here, Got a call from Jeep Artarmon. They are expecting 2 demo vehicles around Australia Day and booking in test drives now. Absolutely no clue on any specs, engines, accessories, brochures etc though. Still all TBC. We're getting closer though.
Putting aside some of the hyperbole in that comment and that fact I too would actually love to have a V8 in one, Jeep did create a concept called the Trailcat. It clearly takes a lot more than just plopping an engine in the car but needs to have beefed up components throughout which may make it...
It does feel like it's going to drag out until early next year so I have gone the FJ Cruiser route for time being as need some wheels now and probably good place to start beginner courses.
I'll seriously consider a part exchange around Feb when the JLURs are more readily available.
Further update from Sydney: 2x demonstrator vehicles will be delivered in September for public to view and test drive (along with new Cherokee). Specifications and orders will open around then too for delivery approx February 2019 as Joey mentioned above. Boat journey takes approx 20 weeks...
Thank you for the update. That time-frame is quite disappointing as I cannot wait another 7+ months to purchase a car. Especially if it's likely to be the 2018 model anyway. Oh well, time to keep shopping.
