Looking at Jeeps
I missed the part where they mentioned / showed the manual transmission. How do they plan to offer a manual in a BEV? I would be in line to purchase if they somehow can pull this off and offer a manual in an EV.

Hope they Hellcat it before they Prius it
Agreed. I’m just glad I’m getting my 392. Seeing this I don’t see the 392 going past a 5 year run. Probably less than that.

I wonder if self driving mode can steer it straight when it pulls to the right.
Well they were laying in the back of the jeep while it was self driving down a rugged trail. Now I'm all for progress, but I believe that they are heading for a "trust fall".

To me, the weirdest part of that commercial, and let's be honest here, it's pretty weird, is the jeep driving up to meet them at the summit after the hike.

I kept thinking, "where is that Jeep going?" 🤣

Nice Panerai.

I'll reserve judgment for 2024 -- but my current concern is still ensuring I get the 392 I ordered, lol. I'd imagine at some point I'll have an all electric Wrangler though.

Crazy they based it a 2017 JK concept and subtly hid the blinker lights present in the grill. Shows that 2024 estimate is definitely optimistic. Should be a cool rig though if they can put enough battery in it to give it usable range for what we do with our Wranglers.

Haha me too. Dealer said confirmed build the week of July 26th. I’m leaving for Disney world on the 18th (wife’s idea of fun) and I’m hoping once I get back on the 25th and have some rest, I’ll have confirmation of that.

"Look what followed me home from the trail today! Can I keep it??" 😆

There was a super hyper awesome Mustang BEV concept vehicle a little while ago with a manual transmission. It’s all simulated, of course, but apparently it’s possible. I can be down with an electric future if they give me that concession.

Instead of hiking like a normal person, just keep your stuff in the Jeep, and have it tag along behind you. Like one of those robotic pack mules the DARPA boys have been playing with.

I like the front fender and turn signal treatment on the “Freedom” concept Wrangler.
