Since inception, AutoSpies' primary goal is to work on behalf of consumers to make them aware of the best deals in the automotive market. We've done this in a multitude of ways.

One that has been quite beneficial for our users is the tax deduction associated with business vehicles. This falls under Section 179 of the tax code.

For 2019, it turns out a friend of AutoSpies, Anton Wahlman, has noted something interesting related to the new Jeep Wrangler.

The net of all of that is that until now it did not have a GVW of 6,000 lbs.

As a result, it was not eligible for the $25,000 first-year Section 179 tax deduction. That put the Jeep Wrangler at a disadvantage in the business purchase market...

...That all changes at the end of December 2019.

Why? Because FCA is now introducing the first Jeep Wrangler with a GVW of just over 6,000 lbs...
