I'm curious but I wonder if they will be dropping the 8 speed behind the wranglers soon as well. They already have the pentastar v6 on the other half of the Chrysler fleet so I guess it wouldn't be to far off.

To me, that'd make me a hesitant buyer of anything that doesn't have an 8 speed right now. First it was the cars now it's the trucks/suv's.

That's just me though! Sounds like you need one now so good luck!

We certainly don't NEED anything, she has a good running car. Supposedly the 8 speed will be in the wrangler in the 2017 makeover. I don't really care about the 8 speed that much honestly. The pentastar in the wrangler with the 5 speed auto (I think it's the 545rfe/65rfe but not positive) in the 2012+ wranglers is a great combo. Plenty of power and good mpg. We were looking at older wranglers and the 3.8L with the 4 speed auto (42rle or whatever it is) is ok but we figure we would like to have the newer engine/trans with more power and mpg for nearly the same price anyway since they hold value so well. This will almost certainly be the first and last new vehicle we ever buy. Jeeps just hold value so well and wranglers are so rare/unique. We are actually having trouble finding the exact options/color we want, even brand new.

I'd really like to be at ~$24k out the door.
then tell them 24k OTD is where you need to be to make a deal...

Yeah we actually found that to be a little unreasonable for the vehicle we're looking at. We're looking at $25k out the door now which I think is reasonable. We told them last night and they got to $26k. So we went home.

Well, what do you guys think!!??!!??



Didn't get the $25k out the door we wanted but close to it. We found it was hard to find exactly what we wanted so when we found this online last night it's EXACTLY what my wife wants down to the color so I drove out and put a deposit on it today. Pick it up tomorrow unless for some weird reason the wife doesn't like it tomorrow. But that's not going to happen lol.
