Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

... and now for something other than the shifter drama - review of the SRT from yesterday. Remote start is included. Is that something new?

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

Looks like a PLATED MY16, but it is not an MY16 model. The shifter is wrong for it to be an MY16. (Sorry for mentioning that shifter again...)

I still haven't seen any real MY16 for sale in Australia on any of the usual websites.

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

There a couple of the night edition advertised on carpoint - but no "lesser" models with the new shifter yet.

Just the SRT? No other variants. Umm... what's going on? Are they doing some sort of weird release date thing that will coincide with the 75th anniversary celebration in Bendigo on the first weekend in October maybe?

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

And the SRT ad does not have real photos - just stock photos from a car show by the look of them. So I doubt there are any in the country yet. This correlates with the information I had when I decided to go with an MY15. We will get a few SRT and 75th anniversary version of the MY16, but that will be it for this year. We won't see the new shifter in the mainstream models till the MY17.

By then the brand new Disco 5 will have been released.....and the Giulia.....

From my point of view the MY17 may be the best GC to get, with all the bugs ironed out and before they change to a smaller 4 cyl of something like that. The MY17 will be a keeper I think.

Just for the record, the sales dude at Narellan told me in January that he could guarantee to have me in an MY16 by June - I have it in writing. Guess he was wrong.

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

With Jeep sales down 50% you would think that deals are imminent.

Pity that they didn't show how the new shifter works.

I think CJD Aust had a rethink somewhere along the way, because I have an email from them ie: CJD Aust (via talk.jeep.com.au that was never published) from back in Feb that confirmed to me also, that the 2016's would be available for purchase in June. So the plan changed somewhere around March I suspect. I also noticed that Milous did not answer your question on the same topic a while ago. These things are fluid I guess - pity they don't keep the dealers up with their thoughts though.

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

Maybe with the 2015 stock still in yards they are holding off until it is all cleared.

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

Probably - it seems there are still many MY15 unsold so JA just won't bother with the MY16. We will get a few 75th anniversary to stimulate some interest ahead of the release of the MY17. Do you think JA have pulled their heads in and are keeping a low profile after all the bad publicity and are preparing for an aggressive relaunch next year with a full range of MY17 including Trailhawk? Just a thought.

Pat " mr invisible" Dougherty is certainly keeping out of the spotlight.

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

It would be a good strategy, a lot of damage has been done, might take a while for buyers to forget it. But then VW seems to have bounced back from very bad publicity.
