Re: 2017 Cherokee - What's New

Wow retiring the Mango Tango. That's my color so I'm actually glad to have that limited a bit but one of the better selling colors. The HID thing should have been addressed long ago. I upgrade to HID after buying a 2016 as well as bright LEDs in the driving lights. The output from the projection halogens were simply unacceptable.

Re: 2017 Cherokee - What's New

Yeah same as down here. Iur Trailhawks standard come with pretty much all of that except the memory seat and mirror. For some reason that was discontinued for us. We also get the tow pack standard but no hitch. I should prob say ours have all those options at no choice included rather than standard! In our range the TH is the top of the range by default, we have always even had HID on the TH standard.

HID is the same as Xenon?

Re: 2017 Cherokee - What's New

Yep, the HID stands for how they work - High Intensity Discharge and the Xenon is the gas used. There used to be a similar set up called Mercury Vapour, as you guessed it, they used mercury as the gas. They were commonly us3d for sporting fields and wharehouses but took ages to warm up to full brightness.
