The V6 E85 is 42 state compliant. Recent emission changes in the CARB state require additional cat modifications. The hardware is the same for all states and we expect to be 50 state E85 certified soon. This reflects the changing regulatory challenges we all manage.

1. The 430N is the new Garmin Nav system. The main difference is that the Garmin system has new graphics and functionality, but does not include dead reconing (which tracks your mapping if you are in a tunnel or behind a building) or voice activation input.

2. Both Nav radios are capable of being updated.

Thanks,

You can run in SPORT mode for an extended period. However, the vehicle will default to AUTO at key-cycle. The T-case manages the torque and we have validated the system.

Would you have an estimate on the repercussions of using e85, as there is a loss of mpg with switching to it, how much of a loss would there be on estimate?

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Questions:

1)It appears that many of us who ordered Overlands have seen them built, only to see them languish in quality control inspections (sometimes for weeks). Was something found that needed correction, and if so, what was it?

2) What is the process after a vehicle is "shipped to storage", what stages are involved? why some vehicles are "stuck" for 2-3-4 weeks?

3) Is Jeep planning to allow the customers check the status of a vehicle online?

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

There seems that are alot of things being added to the orverland each month. Will we be able to add these features though dealerships if we order now i.g. blind spot detection/Adaptive Speed Control or is there a hardware change that would prevent this

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

Why, even on a fully loaded Overland, are there inert/dummy button areas on the dash/HVAC?

It is obviously necessary to have these buttons as a placeholder on lower models, but why would a fully loaded Overland still have them?

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.
Cannot confirm nor deny.

Re: 9/8/10 Jeep engineers chat

remembered my second question...

Why was the wk designed with NO 2WD option? is it not durable to be able to go from 2wd to 4wd ?

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.

1. Overlands now in production include Quadra-lift.
