Here's hoping the diesel isn't a $4,000+ option.

That 8.4 Uconnect is fantastic. Have it in my Cherokee Trailhawk. It's a bit slow, but better than JK systems.

Just read about how the traditional soft top will be replaced, which makes sense when you factor in the glass roof. Glass in a soft top... can't recall when last I seen that combination. 3-piece hard top roof is what I read and it can come off in sections, so you can still have an open roof.

RIP soft top.

I remember the Mitsubishi Eclipse had a rear window made out of glass and it was soft top. But with the much bigger sizing of this glass, I agree, hard top would be the best route to go with.
