1. Sport models do not have a standard spare tire, only the inflator kit. A spare can be ordered, though. Not sure if it is a full size or space saver at this point.

2. Luxury package does not have underseat storage in passenger seat.

3. Glove box is supposed to be deep enough for a standard (15" ?) laptop

4. Charging pad - you will need an aftermarket case for your phone, available through Mopar, et al. Also, DO NOT place keys, change, other items in the vicinity of the charging cradle. It will be very, very hot.

5. CHMSL has a gyro in it that is tied to a theft alarm. If the vehicle is locked and it is jacked up or tilted to so many degrees, the alarm will trigger. To disable/disarm, press "lock" 3 times.

6. User is required to apply brake and gas when using parallel/perpendicular parking assist. You can automatically override the system by steering wheel.

7. Skyslider sunroof will not be available until 2015 due to vendor negotiations.

8. Adaptive cruise control must be set after regular cruise is set, and has 4 ranges - short, medium, far, extra far or something like that. There is not a printed distance for legal reasons.

9. Lane departure only works on paved roads with lines at a speed greater than 37 mph - meaning it will not work if there is snow covering the road...or most of Michigan since they don't pave anything outside of city limits. And you must have a hand on the steering wheel. The system relies on a video camera just below the rearview mirror, which obviously must have a clear field of view.

10. Heated wipers...a heating element at the base of the windshield warms the wiper blade when the temp drops below 32*F.

11. As of last night, there have been none, zero, zilch, Cherokees shipped anywhere in the US or Canada for sale regardless of what anyone has heard or said. This is directly from the Detroit/Toledo Regional trainer, who met with the Jeep production manager yesterday. There are appx. 11,000 units on the ground, but some are moving into the "packing" phase of delivery - being loaded onto rail cars & truck trailers.

The reason for your point 2 is that the Luxury Package includes ventilated seats and requires a place to install the equipment to accomplish that.

Picked up a Cherokee brochure at the Jeep dealer today. Nice publication and very creative layout.

We've ordered about a dozen for customers and there are several sales people that say they have one sold "today," but none delivered yet.
