New about forthcoming vehicles typically comes from devoted boards, the place eagle-eyed fanatics pore over order types and share spy photographs within the hopes of discovering one thing — something — a couple of hotly anticipated automotive. The most recent juicy tidbit comes from the JL Wrangler Discussion board, and if it is true, Jeep is about to do some naughty stuff to individuals’s wallets.
JL Wrangler Discussion board consumer TCMC made a put up this week that alleges to have info on the upcoming‘s value. The consumer was checking on their order, and was greeted with fairly the eye-opener: $77,055.
You learn that proper, Jeep needs you to shell out virtually 80 grand. And for a Jeep Wrangler with a Hemi that is been kicking round different components of the FCA lineup for, effectively, a scorching minute.
Now, as all the time, discussion board posts ought to be taken with a grain of salt. Whereas there isn’t any purpose anyone would simply make these items up, there isn’t any solution to confirm the consumer’s claims, and representatives from Jeep stated pricing will not be formally revealed till early 2021. The discussion board poster claims that is “fairly near the place [they] thought it could be,” with settlement from another posters alongside the anticipated of us with sticker shock. The poster additionally claims their car solely has two choices along with the 392.
That stated, Fiat Chrysler’s costs for its different Hemi-jammed-into-whatever autos are additionally bordering on the patently absurd. Challenger and Charger Hellcats nonetheless value about $60,000 to begin, with Redeye fashions sending costs into the $70,000 vary and up. The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is almost $90,000, and the Durango SRT Hellcat is not far behind.
Contemplating the JL-generation Wrangler is way newer than any of the aforementioned vehicles, shoehorning a less-powerful-but-still-potent Hemi V8 underneath the hood would not appear that obscene. With 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque, it is anticipated to achieve 60 mph in about 4.5 seconds, and because it’s primarily based on the Wrangler Rubicon, it will be able to deal with all method of terrain. We have pushed the idea already, and, “your greatest guess is to simply maintain on and benefit from the experience.” That appears to use to your time in Jeep’s finance division, too.
