Deliberated over Wrangler or GV, and decided I like rock hopping and minimal overhangs, so JL Rubicon it is.

Only decision is colour; green, punk or silver me thinks.

Is it at the dealerships in January or March...no one, including Jeep Aus can say.

I have had one ordered through my dealer since April and was rang by them three days ago and informed that FCA will be releasing their export vehicle variants mid to late November. Once that happens I can confirm the vehicle I want and the order will be progressed. Getting there - eventually.

I currently have a 2011 Wrangler Unlimited Sport, and am hoping to convince the wife to allow me to buy a new car (never owned a new car!), so was hoping to look into a JL Rubicon Unlimited, preferably Diesel.

But not too sure about if the ones coming here will be worth getting

I have seen the specs for 3 European countries. They seem to be the same as each other. If Australia gets the same specs I'll be getting a Sport.

I have also seen the specs for Jeep UK. If Australia gets the same specs then I am not interested.

And we have no idea about the pricing.

Hey guys,

I put a deposit down on a firecracker red JL Rubicon Unlimited in April this year.

First time Jeeper after 2 Toyota’s and 6 Patrols many years later. Extremely disappointed we are not getting the US spec versions. Now waiting to test drive one in November and decide whether to continue with it or drop back and try to get a JKU instead and modify the hell out of it...time will tell...

Cheers Keith...

Was also waiting for the new JL here in UK BUT they've stuck well over £10 grand ($18,000 aus) on the price
Was also looking forward to the rumoured VM 3.0CRD
Cant see the current low displacement 2 litre offerings being welcomed especially by you guys who load up for those long 'outback' camping trips !
Can fix / replace an awful lot of worn out parts on my current 2007 built JKU for a fraction of the cost of what Fiat are wanting for a JL.
Will probably only consider one now if they offer huge discounts to shift unsold stock from their port of entry parking lots in the future.

It's the same with the Ford Ranger here, it's been going head to head with the Hilux in sales but now they have introduced a 2 litre alongside the 3.2L. I think sales will drop right off once the 2L is the only choice. Small capacity motors aren't in our DNA no matter how good they are. They just have to work too hard.

I think Jeep will struggle to sell the diesel JL here without the 3.0L. I know I was looking forward to one but now, if I buy, it will be the 3.6L petrol.

If you get the option
Only option in UK is the 2.0T petrol of Fiat 2.2 Diesel
NO 3.6 V6 to be offered.

That's interesting. I wonder why?

I believe the Australian specs are out sometime in November.

I really hope that Fiat Chrysler Aust. aren't that short sighted. To import a small capacity diesel and no petrol version would surely kill off any decent sales numbers here.
