I agree, even if this was at extra cost I'd get it. I once test drove an Audi with a 5 cylinder engine, it vibrated so much when stopped at traffic lights it was giving me a headache. If that car had stop/start I wouldn't have noticed it and would probably have bought the car.
When I test drove the MB I wasn't told it had this feature. When I first stopped at traffic lights I commented to my wife how quiet and smooth the car was at idle, then I noticed the rev counter was at zero, I thought the car had stalled! Of course as soon as I took my foot off the brake it started immediately. Nice!
I wondered how it affected the air conditioning since the engine wasn't running. During standard stops at traffic lights there is no issue, however, at long stops i.e. at construction stops, the engine cuts back in after a period of time, even with your foot on the brake, bringing the a/c back on line. Of course, if you know you're going to be stopped for a while, putting the car in park or neutral starts the engine immediately or simply turning the feature off does the trick. It really is quite seamless, after a while you don't even notice it.

Re: 2015 Start Stop

I`ve droven many cars with start stop. In Europe its an standard for new cars, years ago. The mileage you can win isnt measureable. Unless you got stops over 5 mins. If you like it use it . I`m only using it in Hybrid cars. Stop, motor turned off, green starting with electro, while hearing the BMWs and MBs starting.

I see myself pushing that button a lot if I end up not liking the feature....

Re: 2015 Start Stop

I recently test drove a Volvo XC60 with a 2 litre 4 cylinder engine that had the "Stop-Start" feature and I was impressed. There was no shudder and after only a short time of driving I got used to it. On start-up it was very quick, quiet and smooth.

Jeep's claims that the "Start-Stop system will feature a High Speed / High Durability Starter and beefier Batteries. When the brake pedal is released the 3.2 litre V6 will re-start and the nine speed automatic will re-engage within 0.3 of a second". (source: CarAdvice Australia)

Personally I'm looking forward to this feature and have high hopes that it will work as claimed. I'll wait until I actually drive the Cherokee with this feature before passing judgment on it. It's what we do "Down Here"; we like to give most things a "Fair Go". Well done Jeep for being so proactive with all the great features and technology of their new Cherokee.

Re: 2015 Start Stop

Yeah, I can just hear the software gremlins chuckling over getting the start-stop feature to play with.
