The hood will no longer be part of the grille. The grille will be more like the Grand Cherokee, and without the bend. "Triple" front lights are gone. Headlamps will still wrap around but they are taller and not so "squinty" looking.

When I completed that long new owner survey a month or so, ago, only change I could think of was to add rear amber turn signals. Rear amber turn signals are more distinctive at greater distances as compared to red rear turn signals, especially in inclement weather.

The 2016 front looks absolutely perfect to me, though. Curious to see the 2018 new fascia.

What a tease!

"Pleased" would indicate a headlight shape revision. "Very pleased"might also change the rear hatch appearance. "VERY pleased" sounds almost like a more square historically reminiscent shape but that's probably asking too much for a refresh.

Export models already have the rear amber turn signals - mandatory out here. I am not looking forward to a revamp of the front end, I like it the way it is!

Please post a picture of one of your rear lit amber turn signals. Wondering how they look. TIA.

OMG! I Hope this is not true. Do they remember, what they did with the Alfa 147 years ago? This car was also a unique icon. After the facelifted to mainstream, it was dead.

If you look really hard at the outer section of brake light there is a clear section in the middle of it with a slight amber tinge to it. Thats from the amber globe inside it.

Thanks for posting the picture. Wonder if it'd be a big deal to retrofit mine with amber rear turn signals? Dare I ask the dealership service department? Seems it'd be an easy do-it-myself project if I knew which turn signal connections needed to be changed.

Re: 2016 Jeep Cherokee KL - Features, Options and Pricing

Has a thread been started yet for the new 2017 Cherokee KL's? Also, does anyone know when Jeep will start taking new orders for 1st allocation on them? Getting ready to place an order for the Wife's first Jeep...

Very few changes expected. Order banks will open in early June, the exact date has not been set yet.

Any word on available colors for the 2017's? Specifically the Trailhawk, and the Overland models.
Thanks!
