Same as descent ie: just steer and let it do the rest except this is ascent. Press button and just steer.

Re: 2014 diesel production

On hills, Hill Start Assist locks the brake for 2 seconds after you let your foot off the brake, to keep the vehicle from rolling, giving you time to apply throttle.

Hill Ascent controls the vehicle speed on inclines without the need for throttle or brake pedals. With Selec-Speed you can set the speed in variable increments via the paddle controls.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Just further on the HAC versus the HDC, if you read the 2014 Australian brochure, within the main body of it, if you read pages marked Terrain Traction Management and the Select-Speed blurb that accompanies that on the right, you would assume that at least with the Limited and Overland models you will get both included (particularly if you choose the Diesel option), if you option up to ORAII pack.

However, that is not the case because when you read the fine print (that is only apparent when you read the little tear-off Buyers Guide spec booklet at the back), it states that HAC is only available with ORAII if you have chosen the 5.7L/V8 to be your poison.

Misleading to say the least in the main body of the brochure. Mind you, the little picture on your centre console button tells the story (a picture is after all worth more than a 1000 words).

On our Overland the picture on the button is a vehicle pointed downwards. Clearly we only have HDC. On those vehicles that have both, the vehicle is horizontal.

Matt

Wahoo!!! Got my email from VOTS saying I made it to trim and when I log into to express my excitement, I get an extra surprise here from Willx saying I'm all the way to inspection!



Been waiting for this thing for almost 2 years. So close now . Hopefully it doesn't have to sit in "the yard" for too long and we all get shipped!

Re: 2014 diesel production

All of the e-mails from Jeep are irrelevant except for the one that says shipped. Still waiting for that one. This is getting ridiculous. Been a month, and still sitting in a yard in Detroit. Poor customer service on Jeeps part!!!
