Uconnect Auto Start in 2016?

In reading the new brochure it makes it sound like you can start your car to warm it up using Uconnect app or computer. In 2015 I believe this was only available on Summit models. Does anyone know if this is now going to be available for any new Jeep that uses Uconnect 8.4? Thinking of picking up a 2016 limited but really wanted this feature as I live in the frozen north.

Thanks for all your help!

This has been available on the 2014 Jeep Cherokee and later with the 8.4 so don't know why it wouldn't be available on the Grand Cherokee.

I have this option on my 2015 overland. This feature is not limited to only the summit model

That's awesome. The salesman had told me that the Summit was the only one that had auto start. Thank you!

If your salesman can't figure out that auto start isn't exclusive to the Summit, maybe you should find yourself a more competent dealer.

Just make sure they don't try to sell you on the "premium blinker fluid"

Tell me about it. 75% of the sales people that I deal with are complete idiots with very little product knowledge.

You get a 5 year trial with the purchase of your new Jeep.

Re: Uconnect Auto Start in 2016?

If I'm not mistaken, the Uconnect Access is 6 or 12 month trial depending on head unit. Sirius is 12 month trial and the Sirius Travel link is 5 yrs.

Grrr...I stand corrected. One other reason why I hate car salespersons. Not that it was a selling point, but still...can't they get ANYTHING right??
