Iím going to be real honest... I donít understand the hype about the new Wrangler. It has looked the same forever, and has been an awesome vehicle forever. It may be different under the skin, with some updates here and there, but it looks the same.
'11 Fusion SE 2.5L - 75k miles - Havoline ProDS 5w20, FL-910s '08 Sedona LX LWB 3.8L - 117k miles - Peak conv. 5w30, XG9999
I read about it earlier and was gonna make a post, you beat me to it! Iíll post a link below of the article.
While Iíd love to own one, I never would at this point. Aluminum, really!? Every ding and dent is gonna cost a fortune to repair. Also, I thought the EcoDiesel has been a nightmare in the Ram? There will also be a turbo 4 cylinder. Also has a 3,500 pound towing capacity. Thatís way too low, even my 21 year old Jeep is rated for 5,000 pounds.
Everything else is really cool, new transmission, the Pentastar, the axles, everything else.
I just canít get over the aluminum and the EcoDiesel. No thanks.
Actually I'm all for an aluminum body my sister has a 2012 Wrangler Unlimited and it was showing rust in several areas by 2015! Here in Massachusetts and several other high rust winter areas I would much rather an aluminum body.
