      Bros are everywhere. Dozers are the drug, and 4WP is their dealer.

      Why try to disguise the rear seats and rear cargo area so severely? This had many people on the FB page believing that what we are looking at here is actually the Wrangler pick-up, but cleverly disguised as a 4 door wagon body.

      Could be, but they could also be masking changes to the top. Many people have been reporting that the next-gen Wrangler is going to be a bit more boxed-in than in the past.

      I highly doubt it, especially after looking at other photos of the prototype. I'm 99% sure that it's the regular four-door Wrangler. Also, windows/greenhouses get covered a lot:

      Does it really matter what it looks like though? All of these will have shovels, HiLift jacks and Metal Mulisha wheels on them 15 minutes after the papers are signed.

      Still no LED/HID setups to be seen but I guess they want to ensure the aftermarket stays active. I will say I'm sure a lot of 2 doors still exist but around here in CT/New England there are a lot more 4 door variations rolling around with all the JC Whitney goodies (wheels, lift kits, lights, bumpers, etc.). They look great cruising down the paved roads in town and sitting in their driveways being washed and waxed after a hard rain. To me it just chalks it up to the Jeep version of a bro-dozer.

      I am exhausted by these one-sided dismissal of Wranglers or Wrangler modifications.

      I am biased, obviously, but there are a lot of sedans, coupes, and sports cars tricked out with "track ready" mods that only ever race to Starbucks.
      Does your average Civic, Toyobaru, or WRX really need those lowered suspensions, carbon fiber hoods, or aerodynamic add-ons?
      I am not criticizing the owners of those cars who choose to make those mods, but let's not think that modified cars are somehow more righteous than modified SUVs or trucks.

      That is some very odd logic.

      Jeep has a very good relationship with the aftermarket, including its own MOPAR parts catalogue. It saves them a lot of money to let the aftermarket do a lot of the product development and testing.
      A lot of stuff developed in the aftermarket, usually finds its way onto Jeeps from the factory.

      I definitely think Jeep holds back on what would otherwise be standard or optional equipment, to satisfy the Wrangler customer's desire to "build it themselves".
      I also think Jeep looks at the mark-up they can charge by offering some equipment through MOPAR, rather than making it standard.

      Totally agree and I'm aware of the open relationship. But we're talking HID headlights here. I seriously doubt aftermarket headlight development is what Jeep is craving.

      IIRC they've already confirmed HID/LED headlight options on the upcoming JL, finally.

      via Automotive News
      A new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that Fiat Chrysler will build starting next year will likely debut as an option on the next-generation Jeep Wrangler -- to the tune of almost 300 hp.

      FCA announced in late April that it would invest $75 million in its Trenton Engine Complex south of Detroit to produce a new four-cylinder engine on a flexible line at the plant. The line had been producing FCA's 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6.

      The new 2.0-liter, code-named Hurricane, is a high-output, direct-injected inline-four with variable valve timing and a twin-scroll turbocharger, according to sources. The aluminum block engine is expected to make almost 300 hp, a source with knowledge of the project told Automotive News.

      Details of FCA's next-generation inline-four were previewed in May 2014 by Bob Lee, FCA's global head of powertrain, during a presentation to investors.

      FCA produces another, less powerful, 2.0-liter inline-four at its Dundee Engine Plant that is used in the Dodge Dart and Jeep Compass and Patriot. That naturally aspirated engine produces about 160 hp.

      The Hurricane is likely to debut as a fuel-saving option on the next-generation Jeep Wrangler, due next year.

      CEO Sergio Marchionne has hinted that the next-generation Wrangler would have an optional four-cylinder to go with its new eight-speed automatic transmission. That would provide a significant fuel economy increase over the current Wrangler's six-cylinder/five-speed automatic combination that yields just 17 mpg city/21 highway.
