As is expected with a next-generation model, the Wrangler JL will see a price hike compared to its JK predecessor. An entry-level, two-door Wrangler Sport will see an increase of $3,100 for a MSRP of $28,190. According to Car And Driver, those who want a four-door Wrangler Sport will have to shell out $31,690. (Do note that these prices includes a $1,195 destination charge.

Both Sport models will be powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar engine and it’ll be paired with a six-speed manual gearbox. Standard exterior features include a set of 17-inch steel wheels, Sunrider soft top, and metal doors with manual windows and locks. On the inside you’ll find a LED lighting, an eight-speaker sound system and a push-button ignition.

One step up is the Wrangler Sport S, which starts at $31,390 for the two-door and $34,890 for the four-door. Perhaps a trim worth looking into as it comes with air conditioning, power windows and locks, heated mirrors, 17-inch aluminum wheels, and even keyless entry.

Those looking for a Sahara variant will have to go with the four-door and it is priced at $38,540. Sitting on 18-inch aluminum wheels, the Sahara comes with unique grille accents, body-color fender flares, side steps and automatic headlights. There are also a few additional cabin features and an optional Selec-Trac full-time transfer case, which is only available for this trim.

Then we have the range topping Rubicon with a starting price of $38,190 for the two-door and a hefty $41,690 for the four-door. Designed for the hard trail hitters, the Rubicon is equipped with front and rear Dana 44 axles, electronic lockers, Rock-Trac transfer case, and more.

Of course some won’t just stick with a bare bones Wrangler, with the amount of options Mopar will be offering, the final OTD price could be drastically different.

I think most would go for the Wrangler Sport S trim because it comes with the additional AC and power windows. Maybe you can install those yourselves for less, but I'd rather just pay a bit more and have them from factory so I don't burn in the summer.

I hate to admit it but with the longer financing terms found these days which I will take up, its more of a reason to get the Rubicon, although I would be looking at the Sport. I just wouldn't push financing to a 9 year term, probably going for a 7-8 year plan.

I'm looking to outright purchase so the Sport S makes more sense for me and I don't plan to climb up rocks, just some trails that the average cars will get stuck in.

You might be able to try some more trails with how much better the approach and departure angles have gotten with the JL, although it was incremental, it can make all the difference once your pushing it to its limits.

:smile2: I'm afraid we gotta do what we gotta do--

I've had several RUBICONS and I don't want to be in situations where I can't/won't lock front/rear or be able to easily/quickly free the front sway bar--

I'm afraid I'm just spoiled by leather too, no kids and when I carry my grandkids I'm pretty strict with liquids/foods-

I've always modified the front/rear locking Diff's so they are lockable instantly in any gear, so that'll be on my TODO list anyway-

Waiting for the JL is kinda like waiting for a new born !

Have a great day-

:nerd: JIMBO
