Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

We did our cross shopping today with test drives. My dealer said none of the 2015 rumors are true. 2015s won't hit until December at the earliest. Order banks not opening for months.

Also said the 2014s built in the second half of the current MY cycle already have ACC w/stop and a few other tweaks. At least this much is true. We test drove and sure enough, we had ACC with stop and go smooth as can be, just as good as the competition.

The information posted here is from insiders--it's not rumor. Your dealer is feeding you a bunch of hooey...

Yeah, it is the end of the month, after all. Sounds like the dealer is trying to get the sale.

Of course a dealer will say that...he wants to sell what is on his lot. Whatever Milous says is fact, not rumor.

Yes, I'm sure the dealer is trying to get the sale right now.

However; there have been a number of "insider information" leaks that turned out not to be true. Things can change so I'm not really believing much of what anyone says until it happens.

I'm with you. I made this suggestion on this site a very long time ago for a vehicle very similar to this and when they came out with the moab version last year I couldn't believe it! I've been waiting and waiting and waiting.



I've heard rumblings in the past that it was going to happen but sadly it hasn't and I don't believe that it will. The pansy-ass pencil pushing number crunchers at Jeep must not think that it's worth it for them to make it.

Well first they need to make a trail-rated DEF injection system they doesn't get broken off by mudpuddles and sticks. This issue alone has totally killed my interest in the diesel (or any WK2 at this point).

Your dealer is either clueless or a liar. Pick one.

Call your dealer next Friday and say this:

Hello, this is Joe Smith, I came in last week and test drove a 2014. I just wanted to thank you for your time. Since you told me I would not be able to order a 2015 model for several months, and would not get it until the end of the year, I ended up ordering a 2015 model today from another dealer, for August delivery. When you get a chance you should check out JeepGarage.org, they have the latest and most accurate information available on upcoming Jeep models.

Milous, you should open an online dealership. Make our lives easier.

I thought I did hint at my doubt of the dealer in my post above. I have no reason to doubt you over a car salesman. At the dealer today I kept thinking it must be the last day of the month or something. And this is by far the best dealer close to us.

On the ACC w/stop, I thought we said earlier in this thread that it won't be in the 2015 (and I assumed that meant not already in 2014). Searching more now, it appears it was added after initial MY14 launch but that was later last year according to this thread. http://www.jeepgarage.org/f156/crowd...-acc-66436.htm

I went through all the specs and the GC Build Your Own site page the past few weeks and I thought I saw no mention of ACC w/stop. I guess none of this really matters since not much changes for 2015.

If we do finally decide to go with the GC, I will test drive a 2015 with my hands off the wheel to see if Lane Departure has also been added quietly.
