its just another flavor of vanilla. I am really starting to wonder what the differences are between 11 wrangler models for 2021. I’m thinking that it come down to the shape of the cup holder.See they now have the Islander and 80th anniversary on the build and price. Looks kinda lame for 80th anniversary just a couple badges.
You mean “islander” doesn’t conjure up visions of 27 shades of grey In your mind? “Islander” doesn’t mean “the same as everything else just a different decal on the hood?” What are you? Some kind of “visionary” or something? This is the new Jeep: “any color you want as long as it’s grey”......I expected more from the anniversary edition like the 75th was it? Was that the one with the different colored steel bumpers?
When they say islander I just picture a bright blue Jeep with a white ragtop and a light interior. Some huge decals down the hood that screams beach living.
I dont Want a Higher Altitude. I want a Willys High Altitude Rubicon Recon Sport. That will be a great model. It will have everything the same but the sticker on the hood will be HUGE. Chick magnet.1) Does anyone think they will be adding more options for each model? Like the 80th doesn't even come with leather? I had the 70th anniversary and I thought it was extremely unique to get the army green leather interior.
2) Couldn't agree with @Dkretden any more, I don't know what consumer is sitting back thinking, "you know for 2022 I could really go for a higher altitude."
totally agree with you. But jeep doesn’t. They apparently decided to offer it in the same colors and configurations and just put a different sticker on the hood. Very sad.The islander has blue stitching on the seats I think I noticed. They should carry the blue throughout like the hybrid is doing to be. Do a blue dash like the red rubicon one. Throw blue stitching on seats that say islander. White tow hooks. Maybe white badges. Offer it only in bright colors. Blues, mojito, yellow. It’s got to scream I live on an island and my doors and top are going to be off 90 percent of the time.
There is so much you can do with that theme. Sooooo much.
Nah. If they were under 25, the thing would look wild rather than just boring vanilla. More likely, the designers are all about 64 and don’t give a crap anymore as their department is hamstrung by accountants and lawyers and engineers all wanting to just say “no” to everything........Think bolder colors are in the works but knowinf Jeep that will take another 7 months to see.
I agree if your going to bring back a vintage model like the Islander make it bold colors, and give it something to set it apart. Obviously the marketing experts at Jeep must be either all under 25 don’t even know what the original YJ Islander even looked like.
