As expected, according to our JL/JLU timeline, only the 3.6L V6 is available at launch, but with both manual and automatic transmissions. The newer equipment/options such as 2.0L turbo, diesel, power top, etc. will come later - at the approximate dates listed in our JL/JLU production timeline.

No Baja, Acid or Nacho at launch? Hmmmm....

Hoping that means their late availability is a sign they will still be on offer for the 2019s.

Also of note the steel bumper group on the Rubicon.

I do find it odd that the Pentastar is still described as ‘Upgrade 1’ as if the PSU/PUG is required in the description.

No body color top or LED lighting package for the Sport. Meaning 2 door buyers need to get a Rubicon just to get a body color top or LEDs.. ridiculous.

As mentioned, order banks are now open. We've confirmed dealers can now place an order for a 2018 JLU (whether FCA has begun accepting orders remains to be seen). There's a few interesting ordering oddities being found on the system (continue checking first post for updates).

These may be subject to change since it's still early:
  • Dual Top option only showing for Rubicon with a black hard top
  • Ordering color matched hard top does not require Dual Top option
  • Tan Soft Top only available with Dual Top group on all configurations

I'm maintaining hope that the green we saw on the windshield was electric lime green, and not tape...

So, I'm curious. What does past practice suggest the timeline will be for the release of additional colours? With order banks open, how long do I have to wait and keep my fingers crossed?

Manufacturer Statement of Origin is a long standing requirement for the Can-Am Autopact if memory serves. It show up on the window sticker.

Trail rated kit is mainly a D-ring and snatch strap. First kit had 2 D-rings, I think current one is just a single D-ring.

Usually new colours arrive at two times from experience (but things like Tsunamis that erased Natural Green can change things), usually new colour arrives early in the year to coincide with the Winter Special editions, and then also a late summer early fall colour refresh.
Baja and Sunset Orange were fall update colours (delayed delivery of my JK).

However some colours can be delayed further still if testing doesn’t go well, and might not show up in a year they may even be included on a Press Release or two, like Xtreme Purple, Acid Yellow, etc.

So... Prep my 2005 LJ for another winter, or buy a beater truck to get me through? I think that's the take away message.

Sigh. The waiting...

Going to be hard to place an order without knowing how much everything costs.... Also missing the gearing option for automatic Rubicon.
