I would imagine most Wranglers sold are heavily optioned Sport S models. Most sales are just people buying what's on the lot, and that's the bulk of dealer orders. I went on a test drive and the salesman was fairly disgusted that I wanted a manual 2 door Sport. Possibly because it would be the least profitable sale possible.Not 100% sure, as they are ramping kinda slow, but my guess is we get a small increase in base price ($500ish) and a few options moved to standard equipment status - safety group or LED lighting maybe. Something that simplifies the option lost a bit and justifies raising the price again.
I know most Wranglers sold are Sports, but every one I see on a lot has 5-7k of options added to it, so the number of people actually buying completely stripped Jeeps has to be almost zero.
Coming out with Pick-up soon?? They can"t make any 2Dr Wranglers!!!!!My guess is as long as demand stays strong FCA will keep changes to a minimum in an effort to drive costs down and quality up; these are complimentary. The comments on increasing the options on the Sport is logical as it doesn’t add Manufaturing complexity. Remember their coming out with the Pick-up version soon and that will keep the deveopment team busy.
