Re: '16 Interior Design/ function Changes

Yeah, I did see the location , I'm just wondering if that could be the button to change the "Steering Feel". I've heard it's changeable( 3 modes ) on the new '16 GC ...some how?

The Mustang I rented had the "Steering Feel" mode button ; comfort, sport, _____ ( can't remember the other one). Located at the bottom of their stack.

Looking forward to that option. Steering is nice and light driving around the city, but far too light going at highway speeds on my '14 Limited.


p.s. Dang you guys are quick on the responses. Cheers

With the '14/15 you can toggle in and out of sport mode with a slight flick of the wrist. On the 16 you have to reach up to the center stack.

I actually go in and out of sport mode fairly often on my '14, so this is a big minus for me.. hopefully they will put it back on the shifter (or at least into the selectrac cluster) before I am looking to buy my next GC..

Re: '16 Interior Design/ function Changes

If the Stop/Start feature is anything like what's on my 2015 KL, after you start the car, you can press the button to deactivate it. When you restart the engine, it automatically turns back on. There is no way to turn it off permanently.

Re: '16 Interior Design/ function Changes

Other vehicles have it figured out. My Porsche MY 14 Cayenne has a button to override the stop /start feature. Once you disable it , it stays that way !. There is no need to reset it after every restart. So it can be done. Although I have read that it may have changed. Some of the boys over on the Cayenne sight say they can't do that anymore . It returns to the default setting of "on " after a restart. One commenter said it had to do with new MY 16 EPA ratings .

I'll bet it does! If you could permanently disable it I bet they couldn't advertise the current EPA ratings. There is also sorts of goofy rules and regulations. They did a pretty damn nice job on the new Grand Cherokees and I bet they would have designed it that way if they could have....

Then again after typing all that I just thought about how on the 2015 models you can turn Eco off and it will now stay that way until you do otherwise (unlike 2014 that will always default to Eco on). Ahh well whatever, who knows lol.

Same here. I was rather bummed when I saw the interior of the new '16 as i've never quite warmed up to the shifter in my '14. Sport mode is a seamless transfer though. When it comes to application, I get that the "alternative" driving methods are grouped in the center. Hoping for the same once im ready for a new one.
