With all of this Bronco news and hype, has me wondering...when will we see a mid cycle refresh for the JL to swing some momentum back into Jeeps court? I’m hoping the end of next summer as a 2022? Anyone?
I think just an interior update, wheel update, maybe tail light or trim update would be greatHemi... dump ESS..... Eliminate corrosion issue.... half doors...... improve door/tailgate sealing... and find a Chinaman who can and will adjust steering box clearances correctly!!
Knowing Jeep Wrangler history, I don’t think they have ever changed taillights, headlight, grills, etc on a mid cycle refresh. Expect new wheel options, updates to the interior, and tons of special editions. I bet the Mojave hood and aev style bumpers will be coming as well. The engine and transmissions are pretty modern so I don’t think there will be changes to that.I think just an interior update, wheel update, maybe tail light or trim update would be great
I think the Turbo i6 will be 2023 or maybe even 2024. Rumor is it is going in the Wagoneers and the new Grand Cherokee first. We haven't heard anything new about it in over 6 months. I don't think there is anything more important to the future of the American FCA brands than this engine.I would guess, 3.0 Turbo six to replace pentastar, I would assume the full hybrid next year, maybe we get a hemi next year.
What would they do the interior?
Of course they can always parts bin engineer different models and throw in optional equip as standard to give more value, maybe some good rebates for loyalty, own one get 2000$ off your next one etc
I think it is good for the style of SUV, to be truthful I wish it has a power seat adjustment fore/aft, when you get older you appreciate that, and I know people will say it has to be weather proof, but I would assume they could design something, tempted to remove a seat and see if I could graft a one of my older platform power seat tracks to one and wire it up. surprised no one in the after market hasnt given it a shot.What are you expecting in the refresh? Unlike the JK from 07-10 the JLs interior is not outdated and one of the best around in my opinion. I would expect more engine offerings, more packages and better special editions but the interior likely will change very little with a refresh if at all.
I wouldnt waste my time, either buy the new one or live with and enjoy your current Jeep. My strategy is never trade, add to the fleet and use the oldest ones as winter beaters. This way you cheat the depreciation lock in when you trade, you get multiple vehicles to drive all year, it is like getting a new car every few months I just swap insurance onto the ones I am driving and park the others under car covers, allows me to do agressive maintenance and detailing so they all look brand new.Assuming I don’t change vehicles for the engine, should I just add a turbo onto my 3.6 vs. changing? Vehicles are like other electronics, constantly chasing the newest thing (I’m trying to stop). Tried the supercharger route on my JKU and while it was great, I couldn’t get the tune right and then had cylinder misfire codes... not sure if I want to enjoy that headache.
