Wrangler JL Reviews Starting To Pour In

Or they will start pouring in soon because Jalopnik is in Tucson, Arizona, for a test drive of the new Jeep Wrangler. I assume other publications are there as well for the press drive event, so this thread could be a place where we compile a list of them.

Can't find any other publications speaking about it so far :/
I hope MotorTrend will take their chance and provide a nice Wrangler's review for us.

It would be cool if we can have a windshield folding competition to see who can do it faster

In a way it will help especially when it unexpectedly rains and you need to cover everything up right away.

Can someone please explain me the point of having this folding windshield, cause I really see no reason to take down the windshield ever.

Improved visibility and reduce glare, also you won't have to worry about throwing glass everywhere if you hit a tree or rock. Of course there's the cool factor too.

So, basically, it was made for off-roading, right? If that's the case then I take my words back

I like it for the fact my interior can stay cleaner due to all the ventilation it gets, without you will find that dirt and sand gets trapped. But then again an alternative to that is keeping the entire vehicle closed. There's also a military history that plays into this, apparently it was for easier logistics.

Well, currently I don't have a folding windshield, however, my interior stays clean without any ventilation, because I take care of it. It's pretty much the same thing as if your apartment is dusty and you just open the window to blow that dust away.
