I switched back to safety razors more than a year ago and have had a few straight razors handy.
Marketing gimmicks are just that. However as fussel states if the ZF9 proves itself to hold up for 200K miles, in the long run then it one less piece of short term maintenance that so many vehicles differ from around the 100K mark that seriously deprecated many a vehicle no matter the initial asking price.
Look at Porsche 911s on the market where at that 100K miles mark they are quite affordable because the maintenance needed is so extensive, especially in cabriolet form. Having an automatic transmission that can go much farther would help ease the burden on SUVs that are not used in heavily salted areas.
Will they put the ZF9 in the new Wrangler? This may have been asked and answered somewhere in the forum, but with the Wrangler being such a heavily profitable vehicle for Jeep and always in demand a solid automatic transmission is a big factor.
If they ever put out another pickup version of the Wrangler, I would seriously consider switching. But it would have to last.
