There is sort of an upscale JL model coming.
Is it an "Opening Edition" ?

There was such an edition for the Renegade and there is an "Opening Edition" for the Compass too here in Europe.

G Wagon competition?

One of my big gripes with the JKU is no rear seat A/C vents. I don't suppose you've got any insight on whether that's been corrected in JLU?
Yes, we've just learned that the 4 door JLU has rear passenger vents placed in back of the front middle console.

If true, it's about freakin' time. Even the XJ had vents for the rear seats way back in the 80s... I was really kind of surprised that the JK didn't come with them.

No sign of ventilated seats, at least not for 2018 model year JL. But yet another FCA vehicle will soon get them for both front and rear seating!
I was really hoping for a "Overland" model that was more a luxury Rubi model. Something like nicer leather, a/c & heated seats, upgraded premium sound, and maybe some actual Overlanding features like extended range gas tank.

I would love to see AC vents for the back passengers in the 2 DOOR ! Dogs and humans need this, the lack of side windows that open in the hardtop makes this a real desirable NECESSITY !

Also 'Needs' vents coming out the top of the front seats at neck level like other convertibles to aide with chilly but sunny drives (especially morning and evening in the mountians), that's a Merc Perk... and a few others.

I have this feature in my TJ. I call it a hoodie... ;o)

This is why I keep the doors on 99% of the time. When it's cooler, I roll up the windows, put on a jacket or hoodie, and crank the heat at my feet!

Yep, but the Hoodie ruins the open effect.
