Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Milous,

I get a vehicle stipend through my work (with stipulation that vehicle can be no more than 4 years old). My 2010 Liberty will fall out of compliance 1/1/15. I was planning on getting a JGC MY15, BUT I recently read on wk2jeeps:

2016 Grand Cherokee (includes WK2Jeeps.com exclusive advance info)
Order banks open - December 2015
Production startup - January 2016
Sales launch - February, 2016
6th model year of the 4th generation Grand Cherokee
Laredo, Limited, Overland, Summit and SRT models continue
Refreshed interior and exterior
75th Anniversary models
New: 360 camera system (unconfirmed)
New: Foot-activated tailgate (unconfirmed)


So a couple of questions based on your past experience:
a.) How sure are you of the dates listed not being pushed out?
b.) If the dates hold, when could a person roughly expect to take possession of a MY16 built-to-order from the factory?
c.) Do you think the front of the vehicle will change much?
d.) Do you think the overall style / look of the vehicle will change much?
e.) Have you heard any more whisperings about the 360 cameras, or any other new features (lane depart, etc)?

Thanks Milous!!

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

How about offering the Platinum Package on Overlands? Or making an S-Limited?

That's 1.5 yrs until you can even place an order. Around 1.8 years before receiving your 2016 Jeep GC if those dates are accurate. Seems late for ordering/production. IMO those features don't justify the wait AT ALL over a 2015.

Look at it this way. You buy a 2016 and you only get to drive it for a year until a new body style comes out. Sucks IMO.

Buying a 2015 now for me is perfect. A couple of years of it being current. And 2-3 years of the new style being out to work out the kinks and refresh. Gives me 4-5 years with the 15 before I sell and buy the new one (If I like the WK2 and the diesel does not give me problems). Other then one of my project cars, I don't think I have ever kept something past 4 years! lol.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Has the fold flat front seat option and body colored mirrors option been discontinued on the 2015's?

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I'm about to order a 2015 JGC Limited with the Diesel (EXF) and Off-Road Adventure II (AWY) package. Do you guys know if the Electronic Limited Slip Differential (DSF) would be included in that EXF+AWY configuration on a Limited?
I've looked at the dealer's "2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Customer Preferred Code Guide", and its not clear that it would be included.
Thanks for any insights you may have.

I can confirm Mirrors on 2015 Limited can be ordered body-color matched for no charge as a stand alone option. Not available with Lux II package.

Don't know about fold flat passenger seat but wouldn't be suprised if they offered it again since it seems like they are really pushing it based on 2014 Grand Cherokee Limited inventory

Great place to hear everyone's opinion, I wish we had group buys here, though...
if you PM me I'll share with you the deal I just made. Don't bother PM you yanks as you guys pay a hell of a lot less than us Aussies do - sadly

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Sorry if you've already said this, but is there any reason you're ordering an MY15 rather than buying a current MY14
