WranglerRumor: 4-Door Wranglers in Dealerships In January???
Posted by mike on 2006/5/19 10:57:12 (6138) reads

One of our readers sent us in a report that he heard from a dealership that 4-Door Wrangler Unlimiteds will be hitting the dealerships in January, 2007.

the 4 door Wrangler is getting Job 1 August 28th. He didn't expect to see any at the dealership until January, which seemed odd.
Can anybody confirm/deny this report?

More info:

The 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will be sold in more than 100 countries throughout the world, in both left- and right-hand-drive models. Wrangler Unlimited will be available with a new 3.8-liter V-6 engine and a diesel engine will also be available for key diesel markets outside of North America. Built at Chrysler Group’s Toledo Assembly Plant in Toledo, Ohio, the 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will arrive in U.S. Jeep dealerships in the fall of 2006, and will follow to international markets starting in the first half of 2007.

The idea for the Unlimited came from the popularity of a long-wheelbase model sold in Egypt.

I just learned today from the dealership that the color of the hardtop is determined by the interior color chosen. I'm not sure if both Khaki and Slate Gray interiors are available for every color, but I do know that you can get the Rescue Green and Jeep Green with either Khaki or Black Hardtops - interior color will match as such.

Ordered mine yesterday, and prices are available - not much of a change from the 2006s.

A dealer I talked to about a month ago told me that NONE of the '07 Wranglers would be here (Chattanooga, TN) until around Jan or Feb. Could that be true depending on area? I would assume more of the bigger markets (CA and NY) would probably get the first few orders than some of the places in the South. I hope that's not true.

I'm going to call other dealers in my area and see what they say.

I have been told by my dealership that orders should be able to be placed early July. I am guessing late August, early September to arrive at dealerships.

I don't think it's so much trying to scare the public as a salesman trying to move the '06 s he has on the lot.
CanJeepYJ-Where did you get the production schedule info?

You are probably correct...I was just joking with Mike.

Here is where I got the info. The person that posted the info "oh20" is a very great source. The man is dead on.

I have yet to see him wrong on anything he posts at allpar.com

Code...Year .… SOP .….. EOP ……… Vehicle
JK .......2007… 07-06… 07-07… Wrangler 4-door
JK.…....2007 .. 08-06… 07-07… Wrangler 2-door

"SOP" = "Start of Production" ("MM/YY" as in 07-06= July 2006)
"EOP" = "End of Production" ("MM/YY" (as in 07-06= July 2006)

There is no way it will only reach dealers in Jan.
The Caliber took only a month or so...the same will be true here.


Don't scare the public mike

The new Wrangler should hit dealerships in September, a few may even arrive in August depending on how extensive quality control is.

The Patriot begins production on October 9th. They should start to hit dealerships in late October/early-to-mid November.

I would NEVER trust dealership salespeople on release dates on new models, or for that matter any info on new models.

good to hear the release dates - our dealership - small town USA is supposed to call as soon as we can place and order - we had the first rubi and if we can get the color thing worked out we may be the first with the 4door.

Have you been to Wellsville - 4wd.com sponsoring a run there this weekend - pre registration only.

FWIW, Jeep.com is still showing a release date of "Summer 2006" for the '07 JK Unlimited...

That is not really a surprise. Even for the Commander, which has been out a year...

The 2007 model year has a Job 1 date of July 2006. But, I am being told not to expect a Commander ordered now to arrive until September.
