in this day and age, you'd think power windows would come standard, but that may not be the case with the Wrangler JL. In the manual: “power windows—if equipped.” So the entry level Wrangler JL have manual crank windows. Didn't see that coming.

LOL, I actually felt the same way a year ago. It's kinda weird that you cannot add it in "Build & Price" on their official website as an option. Correct me if I'm wrong, the only way to install power windows for the Sport trim (for example) is only aftermarket option, isn't it?

Wow, the only model I expected that on was maybe with military allocation if they still do that sort of thing. I guess they had to cut back on some things to just make pricing that much more attractive because I don't know about you guys but, If I was on a tight budget, a JL with manual windows wouldn't be so bad.

Great idea. Also, I've faced kinda the same issue with my friend's Chevy Cruze. I was so shocked to see those manual side mirrors in sedan these days.. I'm not sure if it takes a lot of money to install this feature into a car, but current car companies should definitely think of this feature as a "MUST have" one!

Last time I saw a hand crank window was inside a pre 1990s car. How much money can you really be saving by leaving it out?
I know Jeep isn't one for sparkles and tons of features when it comes to the Wrangler, but this seems like a step back to me.

It's also a way for them to push higher trim models with power windows, forcing you to pay more for something you're used to having. May as well go for the higher trim if you plan to purchase the vehicle and drive it for years on end.

Truuue! That seems like a good (not for buyers) sales move, makes people buy more expensive model. Also, some customers buy the lowest trim level as a second car for hunting or going off-road few times a month, so they don't even need that kind of features.
