I've been trying to get some info on what the base price increase will be on the 2016 JGC. I've been to dealers but they play ignorant- no surprise, wanting you to buy a 2015 off their lot. I'm sure they know.

Has anyone seen anything definitive on this? Wireman

Honestly there will not be any substantial difference between the 15 and the 16. I would defiantly purchase a late 2015 model. All the "problems" of the 14 have been worked out and they are solid. Just Drive it and you'll be fine.
I think from what I have seen and heard that there are minor changes to software but you will not see much in the terms of design changes

Not to mention the fact that the factory powertrain warranty is being reduced from 100k to 60k miles on the 2016's.

I like the old school shifter being back on 2016. Other than that love my 2015. 2019-2020 will like be my next upgrade. 360 degree camera and likely some autonomous driving features. By the time of my retirement, my jeep may drive me places while taking a nap :)
I have compared our Jeep warranty to the one in Czech Republic. While the Jeep is not necessarily more expensive (except the tax), it has unlimited miles warranty for 2 years.

I purchased a 2016. I could have gotten a 2015 for a LOT less, especially with the $2000 rebate, but none of my local dealers, I tried seven different ones, were able to get a 2015 for me.with the options I wanted. I would have had to fly to the Idaho panhandle or Pennsylvania and drive it home in order to get one. Plus, I REALLY didn't like the shifter in the 2015s. It seemed like there were a few other minor, mostly cosmetic and software, changes in the 2016 that induced me to go with the newer model.

As far as MSRP, here is my window sticker. I paid $52,011 without a trade-in.

Note it still shows 5 year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty. My dealer said Jeep was dropping it to 60,000, but I think I can hold them to the 100,000 based on this document.

One thing I'm running into is a lack of after market accessories for the 2016. For example, HuskyLiners told me the floor pan in the 2016 changed, and they are retooling to produce Weatherbeater and X-Act products (WeatherTech's don't fit quite right, either). Mopar says their rock rails don't fit the 2015 or 2016. With 2016 being a compressed model year, I wonder if many companies will even bother making custom fit accessories or just wait for the 2017.
