What will happen to the current Wranglers' resale value once the JL newer model comes out?

This happened once before with the JK body but I'm not sure if the previous models' values decreased dramatically.

I'd say it's likely to follow the same trend, good time to sell for those that want to get the most out of it while the getting is good but for some that might not be worth it or might not be something they are worried about.

Here if you guys want numbers

According to Kelley Blue Book, the Jeep Wrangler is projected to retain an outstanding 68 percent of its value over three years of ownership and 55 percent over five years. That easily sent it to the head of KBB's newest top ten list, which named the best 2012 models for resale value based on projected depreciation.

Guess the JL won't really affect the already existing Wranglers' resale value much if it's still worth 68 percent after 3 years. Probably a drop but very minimal.

You just wouldn't want to sell it right after the JL goes on sale, waiting out for the hype to die down will help. Ultimately selling before is a good thing, while the market a slightly favored to a decent return on what you spent.

wrangler always enjoys a big second hand market...many people buy exclusively second hand...
