Mmmm. Well, I have really enjoyed my current 07 JKU Rubi. But $70000. I don't think so. Even less so if the reliability issues, death wobble and dealer performance aren't fixed. There is probably better options out there, for what I will want in the future. Disappointed.

Yea, considering the JK Rubi is going out at roughly $56k, the new JL at mid 70's is a little startling.

I was considering a Gladiator but at that price I'll look back at the boring old Landbruiser.

Think they're still fair bit cheaper than landcruisers! Jeeps done this before, overpriced new model and had to drop price by thousands months later. I bought new jk six months ago, was thinking I should wait for new model, glad I didn't.

When I'm ready to buy again, I think I'll be buying the latest JK model I can and transferring everything over from my current JK.

I was looking at a Gladiator but there is no way it as a dual cab would fit in my garage and looking at those prices they would probably want $70 - $80k and they aren't worth that kind of money.

I looooove my jeep, but when you can get a Japanese ute for a lot less... well, even my little brain can figure out the best option.


Good bye Jeep it's been the best 18 years... it's not you, it's not me, it's the bank. lol

I'm with you Nanook. Just checking some ute prices of late - the benz v6 is about 80k, the wildtrack is up there.

I'm seeing roughly 70ish for the Gladdy too, which starts making the landcruiser look good value. And I can't believe I'm saying that.

Yup, spend 25-35k on a low km jku, keep of much as I can off my 2 door to transfer over, spend another 25k getting engineered for 37s with lift and still walk out cheaper then a new Rubicon with a few options. Part out the 2 door to recoup some costs, along with the spare diffs and wheels ripped out for engineering.
It's still not going to stop me from going to check it out at the DBOR JL launch in February.
I want to see for myself if the extra ŕe-engineering is worth the price.

Ford are also going to bring out a new Bronco soon which is going to have a retro look. There is no word on whether it will be released here but Ford Aust would be mad not to. If they can keep the pricing down, it should do well.

I'm worried that at the prices Jeep are asking for the JL, it will become less appealing to someone who has never considered a Wrangler before. As mentioned, why spend that kind of money when it will get you a top of the range dual cab Ranger or Merc.

Anyway, it looks like the JK might have a decent resale value after everybody hangs on to them.

I am sure that FCA will drop the price.

They deliberately start with a high asking price at launch, and then drop the price to get at competitors.

It could be the best way of showing the value in money saved to prospective Jeep owners.

Existing owners like us are not turning the cars over quickly enough.
