With all these delays- Am I missing something? there were reviews of the turbo in magazines
http://driving.ca/jeep/wrangler/reviews/road-test/first-drive-2018-jeep-wrangler

and unless the reviewers BS'ing- his ride was the turbo...

so what the heck if this was printed back in December, and so you know the test drive was at least in October or early November. Did they just park it out back and say " well, all good, let come back in a few months when the production line is ready???

TFL can't test 0-60 worth a damn. Roman has to be the worst driver I've ever seen. He got a 6 second 0-60 on a Ford Raptor. you have to be next level incompetent to do that.

Those were pre-production models.
According to one source at the end of May, while the North American JL Turbos are on hold, they have been making and exporting JL Turbos. I believe those models don't have the BSG. So, they (probably) are making Turbos, but like the 2 door Sahara, we won't see them.

I am, going to miss it, but I hate not being able to fit it in the garage, and going downtown for dinner and such parking is a nightmare.
I just built one to compare to the JLUR and it came to +$68k LOL.

Yup, I’ve got everything but the graphics package and the bead locks and that’s about what mine is lol
Good thing is I’m getting almost what I paid for it

Yeah Raptor is great, I almost went that route instead, but went with the Jeep for the smaller size (Raptor is too big) and extra off road abilities (rocks etc)

There has only been one 2.0 built after the cloning. Where are people getting 2 from? Before yesterday the Crypto was at 53 and that was all the old VINs.

It had been at 53 for weeks
Don’t forget to count the 2 doors :)

I did not even think that Jeep (since only the one plant complex) would have different models for different markets - but I poked around, and I see what you mean - diesel in the UK for example. I did not, however, find any countries where you could get the 2,0 l...My original comment was more to the point that the had 8 freaking months to work out the kinks...and it seems that they were all up in the mountains joy riding and stuff, instead of working like the rest of us...but then again, we have to pay for our toys!

i think a outside plant that built a wire harness part screwed up , so they had to find another manufacturer that’s what I think the delay is
