Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Possibly I didn't word my question correctly to come to the answer, sorry. Here it is again.

1.) I understand that during the first two months, the Overland did not include Quadra-Lift. I was wondering if to this day (For example Overland Models built within the past 2-4 weeks, are still shipping without Quadra-Lift due to a delay or if all models built after July 31st include Quadra Lift standard.

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Thank you very much for coming here and answering our questions tonight.

Now I think this is the most important question of all.

Can you confirm with all the speculation going on, if there is going to be a 201x Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8?

Thanks in advanced, Frank.

P.S. A simple smiley face or sad face will suffice.

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

question from Marlin:

"1. When can we expect the WKII to be released in Australia?

2. Is it expected to differ much technically to the domestic market WKII (electrical system, spring and shock tune, engine tune etc)?

3. When developing new vehicles, is any testing done outside of the US? ie, hot weather high speed testing in South Africa, or extreme cold testing in Arjeplog, Sweden?

4. Are the US manufactured Jeeps on par or exceeding the build and paint quality of the previous versions built in Graz, Austria?"

Phil - when will the current model GC recieve Chryslers brand new 8 speed transmission? Also, what kind of fuel economy increase can we expect from such a change? Thanks!

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

There are compartments/covers under the front seats. The passenger side contains the battery of course. But the drivers side compartment has one of several configurations:
1. Empty 2. Bracket and one electronic box with connectors/cables 3. Bracket and three or four electronic boxes with connectors/cables

What are these various configurations? What additional measures were taken to make these undercarriage compartments water tight? Are these compartments a carry-over from the Mercedes underpinnings?

Thanks for taking the time to participate with the forum!

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

When designing the new GC what area was most porblematic? Who thought of the quadralift? Why has there been such a delay in receiving the overland models after the 2 year wait since the debut at the autoshow?

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

question from jrb1:

"My questions are about the skid plates...

Approximately how much do the skid plates that come with the off-road adventure II package weigh (in total)?

Can they all be easily removed?

Are the skid plates (with the off-road adventure II package) an addition to other protective shielding under the vehicle or do the skid plates replace the protection that comes standard with the vehicle?"

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

On the jeep.com website it say the 430n has an operational part
(. The Uconnect™ Voice Command with Remote USB Port is optional.) My local dealer has no idea and I have called the Jeep owner hotline and they had no information even though its on the website but no order info.Is this a jeep option or a aftermarket. Is there any information you can give on what this is and if it can be ordered yet
