Re: 2017 Cherokee - What's New

Here in Germany we say xenon lights. They are standard in all cars except small cheap cars. The Cherokee for German marked only has Xenon since launch in 2014.

Here you can see this:

Re: 2017 Cherokee - What's New

My total cost of having very bright Xenon HIDs and bright LEDs into the fog lamps was about $400 installed. Of course factory warranty might justify that full purchase price for a 2017.

Re: 2017 Cherokee - What's New

Is there any info about "flat-tow" capability? [Many of us who tow behind our MH have had the "flet-tow-wiring kit" installed which is supposed to "mitigate wobble", but only for KL's up to a date sometime around March of this year. ] Wondering what change is happening.

Re: 2017 Cherokee - What's New

They updated owners manuals on 2016 TH. Recommend a factory wiring kit so the battery doesn't die. Many love towing it behind motor homes.

Canada: HID headlamps added as standard equipment on North models and up (optional on Sport model)

Apple/Android probably 2018 model year when they do the refresh.

Excellent.

Now that the HIDs are on the Trailhawk from the factory, the only thing holding me back is the lack of Android Auto. Hoping my Caliber survives another year, so I can order a 2018!

First wait and see, how the 2018 Cherokee will look like. Im afraid, that the 2018 will not be the Cherokee we love anymore.

Look at you! When did you get yours?

Yeah, the functionality that Android Auto provides is just awesome, so that will hopefully keep me happy with my Cherokee for a while. Can you believe I've had my Caliber for 9.5 years? Crazy!

I won't order it sight-unseen, will want to be well informed. I am concerned that the refresh will lose some of the appearance of the current Cherokee, as I've grown to love it.
