Re: Quadra Lift

Presumably there's no way that it can go into Park mode automatically when the engine is turned off?

From WK2Jeeps, it looks like it has to be pressed.




"Quadra-Lift Air Suspension settings

The Quadra-Lift system features five height settings for optimum ride performance, each with its own benefits.

- Off-Road 2 (OR2)

Provides the maximum ride height of 2.6 extra inches (10.7 inches of ground clearance) for the highest clearance over obstacles. This position also provides the best approach, departure, and breakover angles.

- Off-Road 1 (OR1)

Provides 1.3 extra inches (9.4 inches of clearance) for off-roading, but allows a bit more suspension comfort. This position provides a good balance between ground clearance and ride comfort. The vehicle height will change automatically from Off-Road 2 to Off-Road 1 when vehicle speed exceeds 25 mph.

- Normal (NRH)

The standard ride height and is best for all-around driving conditions. It offers 8.1 inches of clearance and provides the most comfortable balance of ride and handling. The vehicle height will change automatically from Off-Road 1 to Normal when vehicle speed exceeds 50 mph. The vehicle height will change automatically from Aero to Normal when vehicle speed drops below 25 mph, or when vehicle speed is less than 60 mph and the user changes the Selec-Terrain switch from “Sport” to “Automatic”.

- Aero

Lowers the vehicle just over a half inch to maximize aerodynamics and fuel economy at highway speeds. This position also reduces body roll and provides a “sportier” feel. “Aero” ride height is achieved automatically when the vehicle reaches 60 miles per hour, or by selecting “Sport” mode on the Selec-Terrain switch.

- Park

Lowers the entire vehicle 1.5 inches below normal height to make loading and unloading people or cargo much easier. It is activated when the driver selects the DOWN button on the Selec-Terrain/Air Suspension control. The vehicle height will also change automatically from Park to Normal when vehicle speed exceeds 5 mph.

The system also continually monitors passenger, cargo and trailer tongue weight and adjusts the air suspension automatically, to maintain a level ride."

No, from the engineer's chat, it appears that both Selec-Terrain and Quadra-Lift both default to "auto" at key cycle. I don't know how QL works when it's lowered and you start the vehicle- if I had mine, I'd check and tell you, but I'm still waiting.

Yes you can. I put it in park, lowered it to Park Height, and then drove a about 15 ft or so and then it raised to NRH

Re: Quadra Lift

I also am hoping I can lower it to park heigth to enter my garage and hope it doesn't default to normal ride heigth upon startup. I am concerned about how flexible the antenna is. My garage has low overhead.

Re: Quadra Lift

At the risk of sounding like a broken record here, has anyone heard news about when Jeep will lift the restriction on Quadra-Lift for Limited or Laredo X models? Now that Overlands seem to be catching up to some of the backlog, maybe the logjam will break soon?
I've had a Limited order in limbo since early July and my dealer cannot get a straight answer. Should I just change to an Overland and be done with this crazy delay?

I did the build thing in Jeep.com for both the Limited and Overland, and similarly equipped, the price is within $500 of one another. For that difference, you can't beat the final cost of the Overland and its added features.

With the pricing of the Overland, the only reason to not go Overland would be if you did not want the luxury package or the QL. Add either of them, and you are within a few hundred bucks of the Overland, and it also tosses in the other feature, navigation, and the upgraded interior.

Re: Quadra Lift

Yes, to get the ventilated seats, an option that I think really gives additional function to the Jeep, you would pay an extra $1,500 or so. I did the build without QL on the Limited, concerned that the upkeep on this system may be considerable in the future. The Overland just seems like the better value, and will probably also have a higher resale, although Jeep's residual doesn't show that.

Re: Quadra Lift

Thanks for the input, guys. It's not even the price difference that bothers me. In Canada the Limited automatically comes with Luxury Group II anyway, so the ventilated seats are included without having add anything. I just don't particularly need the added interior items in the Overland. But decision time is coming. I do not want to wait forever.

I can say that while the selec-terrain and ql resets at key cycle, it does NOT automatically raise back up until you get moving. If you activate park mode before going in, upon restart it won't raise until you hit 15mph or tell it to raise back up.

FWIW, several Colorado dealers have now stated that the Overland delivery lags are specifically being caused by QL becoming standard equipment and that purveyor having trouble keeping up.

Not sure how that impacts QL option on Limited and Laredo's but presumably the demand for largely unavailable Overlands as of now may keep the former backlogged as well. YMMV.
