I think that's safe to assume. After all - does anybody think the Summit is getting additional features without a price-increase?

Yea...and I just hope that by the time I'm ready for my next one that I've also gotten a raise to help cover that difference...

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

When do you think they will have a V8 replacement for the Hemi? 2016 or 2017?

I fear there will be no V8 option and will be downsized to a more powerful turbo V6 in the next redesigned WK2. The current V6, I feel is underpowered for the current 5,000 pound plus WK2.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Just to clarify, it would appear (correct me if I am wrong) that the next completely new GC is model year 2018 (introduced in 2017)....previously projected to be the 2017 model year, but is now bumped to the 2018 model year.

It also appears that the 2016 will get a refresh following the 2014 refresh of two extra long production years of the 2014 and 2015 (for a total of around three calendar years) so the next refresh starting model year 2016 will cover model years 2016 and 2017.

Then the all new GC in 2018 model year.

Is the above understanding correct???

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I think you are right Dan... Ugh.. I think it's now a trend.. refresh. Not that I'm a Kia fan but the Sorento has looked the same since 2010 but in 2014 they called it "All new". Plus, Jeep has a good thing going with the WK2. may as well keep a good thing going.

Yes, haven't you heard?

Jeep has turned lame and doesn't like fun.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The PDF files are *calendar* year, not *model* year.

Next GC is scheduled for MODEL year 2017.

And from what I've heard, it's certainly on track, no delays. I haven't yet figured out if the Grand Waggy will be a 2017 or 2018... I'm thinking 2017, later introduction.

So this PDF file is certainly contradictory. We will see what happens. Marchionne's "plans" never actually come true 100%.
