When something new is on the horizon, everyone seems to have the rumor and the scoop on just what to expect. It is the nature of the news cycle, to be so desperate to break the story that there is little time for fact checking. The 2017 Jeep Wrangler is a much sought after news story in the auto world and it doesn’t help that Jeep is saying nothing in concern for what is to be expected from the Jeep. Jalopnik has done a service and collected all the rumors under one roof for readers to speculate over.
Some of the rumors they mention are ones that don’t really even need confirmation. An example is that the 2017 model will be redesigned. As they say, this is a given. Fiat-Chrysler confirmed as much during their five-year plan meeting in which the 2017 redesign was shown in a slide. Not that anything was shown other than this is happening, however.
Being tight-lipped can also cause a great deal of worry for fans. For some, it is that a new Wrangler may ditch what makes the Jeep so desirable in the first place. Will the new gas regulations force Jeep to lower the quality and power in the new Wrangle? Will the new Jeep skimp on power to save production costs? This leads into my favorite line of the article, “As anybody whose ever been on a Jeep forum knows; any new Jeep sucks and the outgoing one is the only real Jeep. Such is the cycle.” There is a lot of truth here. The internet has a tendency to be up in arms about speculation.
This reminds me of when the Cherokee was first shown and the Jeep community lost their collective minds over the new look. Yet, this didn’t stop the new Cherokee from being a major winner in sales for Jeep. It’s impossible to tell based on rumors just how good or bad something is going to be.
Check out the whole write-up as there is plenty of rumors not covered here. It’s going to be a long while until Jeep officially confirms anything with the Cherokee and until then, best to take everything with a grain of salt, stay calm, and have faith that Jeep is working hard to make sure that the Wrangler stays a quality product in their line-up.
