But there could be at the cross-over between 2018/2019 next Summer.Most likely because Wrangler sales have been on the decline for 2017. They didn't have these rates when I bought mine which was 7 years into production of the JK. That was my point that I highly doubt you will see zero % on the JL for anytime soon.
This is my biggest belief as to why the JK ain't gonna drop as quickly in value as some would think. Yes, the JL will be a huge improvement in technology, but FCA has a proven track record of releasing new, first year vehicles with a litany of issues.When the completely redesigned JL with all kinds of new environmental compliance driven electrical components hits the market and is fraught with buggy electrical issues the first few years the JK may become more valuable. Many/most car models that go hi-tech experience a slew of glitches early on when they go high tech, even Mercedes on up.
Sure the GC Pentastar is likely the same, but that's not the extent of the updates, nor is it re-assuring.The "new" tech itself isn't really new, it's just new for Wrangler which has always majorly lagged behind other vehicles and more importantly other FCA vehicles that have served as the test bed before making it will make its way to the JL.
True, but as I argued in another thread, the JK debuted with a lot of really, really old equipment that had been around for years and it was riddled with issues well into the refresh of 2012. The technology won't be new, but its application into a Wrangler will be.The "new" tech itself isn't really new, it's just new for Wrangler which has always majorly lagged behind other vehicles and more importantly other FCA vehicles that have served as the test bed before making it will make its way to the JL. Like the 3.6L ESS which most JLs will have has been used in the JGC for a few years, and all of the safety tech. How it all works together on the JL may be the cause of potential issues but it's not like the JL is debuting with bleeding edge features/tech.
