Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Is the 2015 Summit available now with eco diesel and off road ii package similar to Overland? Off road was never an option on Summit, just curious with the new interior and exterior trims :-)

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I was told we should be able to order tomorrow late afternoon if corporate finalizes all the pricing.

IMO all these nanny features are causing some people to become poorer drives and creating a lot more accidents as they are relying to heavily on these so called safety features. No more skill needed to drive and then when people getting into a sticky situation they have no ability to handle it. Each to their own I guess.
I don't disagree with you. After me having a backup camera for most of a decade now, you do want to be behind me in a parking lot when I go on a trip and end up rental car without a backup camera. Turning my head pretty far and checking all angles seems like such a chore these days and I am not nearly as good at checking as I used to be.

Our local State Patrol recently put out a report about how while serious injury accidents are way down, low speed accidents are way up. Stop and go traffic type accidents. Probably from stupid distracted drivers. Competitors to GC more and more are offering tech that will full stop your car at low speed and avoid numbnut bump collisions. Among many other safety tech features.

No matter how right you are about dumbing down driving skills, it is about selling cars. For a lot of buyers, especially in the GC's price range, safety tech looks appealing. And some GC competitors we cross-shopped have or will have some cool useful stuff in 2015 MY.

In the end I lost and my less confident driving spouse won. We have selected a competitor with 9.1" ground clearance for camping as our family hauler replacement. I will finally get my Jeep some day. Oh yes I will!

Milous, thanks so much for all the updates.

I know that 2015 ordering opens up on Friday (June 6), but do you have any ideas how long it might take them to update the Jeep website?

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

A salesman over the phone at the 2nd biggest dealer in the country told my parents that the 2015 is offered in Black Clear Coat and Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl Coat. Can anyone confirm that Black Clear Coat is indeed an optional exterior color choice on 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokees?

~September 1st, as that is the official start of the 2015 model year for the WK and many other Chrysler vehicles.

Does that mean that no one will get a 2015 model until Sept. 1st?

No, vehicles should start to arrive to dealers in early August.
