We have 7 allocated, 4 rubicons and 3 saharas. Orders are in BA which is the dealers selected wish list vehicle, the sold ones always get built first!!

The Local Dealership was able to configure one for Rubicon spec. but there is no pricing info available.
That's kinda silly, how is a dealer supposed to sell cars without knowing the price?

Their allocation is 3 for the initial order.

The 3.8L V6 is the only engine, at 14-19mpg in the aerodymic minivan-I don't think there will be ANY improvement for fuel consumption over the 4.0L i-6. Pathetic.

BTW - The only color option for hard or soft tops is black at this time.

I just ordered an Unlimited, my dealer was only allocated 1 so far. No pricing yet. If you get the trailer tow group you get a 4.10 axle so I opted for the 3.23 standard axle.

The 3.8L gets 18 - 25mpg according to fueleconomy.gov not 14 - 19. Also vehicle weight has more effect on fuel economy than aerodynamics. The Pacifica weighs in at 4639lbs.

With the manual transmission option the JK should be able to pull in more than the 18 - 25mpg.

And the dealers will have the price by the time the vehicle is delivered.

Desertbuzz, it is not your fault. A few media outlets reported the body code as TK early on and everyone else ran with it. I think this was based on the assumption that the WJ became the WK. I believe it was sometime last fall when it was cleared up so that we knew the code was JK.

This is what the GM of my dealership showed me in an email on June 30 so I believe this is right.
