Salut roberto (francorg) and everybody,

Thank you Milous and everybody for the grate info!!

I'm an israeli living in Romania.
The dealership here in Bucharest gets the jgc from italy.
As i ordered a jgc srt 2015 i was told that the ordering banks are suspended, until it will reopen for the new year model.
After about 10 days i was informed that they reopened and that my order was confirmed as a 2015 model year.
I'm still waiting for an estimated delivery date...

So... I assume you can order...
Enjoy.

P.s. Thanks for the whole forum members for a grate way to spend my nights between 2 cries of my 9 months dauther.....

Rafi

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Below is a rendering I put together of a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit in Deep Cherry Red with the Platinum Series Group (click on the photo for full resolution). I know it isn't perfect (or even close ), but hopefully it gives people a better idea of what the Platinum Series Group will look like. I had to go off of the information Milous gave us, but I had to do some interpreting, both in what "Satin Carbon" wheels look like (by the way, the "satin carbon" wheels could be a whole new design), and what pieces were painted and what pieces were "platinum" (I left them chrome because I don't know how to make them look "platinum", or know what the "platinum" will look like).

Front view (normal on left, Platinum Series Group rendering V1 in middle, Platinum Series Group rendering V2 on right):

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Great job, JeepGCOverland (BTW, nice user-name)!

I think the current chrome "strips" that divide the lower body panels from the rest that you painted in body-color will be platinum - same applies to the rear-light surroundings.

My best guess is that platinum will simply be some sort of gray. Perhaps a lighter gray but certainly not as shiny as the current chrome.

Yeah, my "painting" looks terrible but I hope you can see what I mean. What I don't know though is if the chrome surrounding the windows will be platinum, too.

• Body Color Door Handles (MNK)
• Body Color Exterior Mirrors (LEP)
• Platinum Badge (MJC)
• Platinum Strip Tail Lamp (LBY)
• Gloss Blk Grille-Platinum Chrome (MAD)
• Body Color/Platinum Front Fascia (MLE)
• Body Color/Platinum Rear Fascia (ML7)
• Body Color Sills w/Platinum (MRH)
• 20X8.0 Satin Carbon Wheels (WPZ)

I meant to say platinum - not satin.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Updated renderings are up! I changed all chrome (except window trim, as they have never changed its color before, and therefore probably wouldn't here) to "platinum". It is possible that I changed too many things to "platinum" (badging, as Milous did not note it), but the badging does not make a huge difference, so it should not matter that much. I will make renderings without "platinum" badging tomorrow if you guys want me to.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Good job!

The one thing I noticed on the latest update is that the (current) chrome-strips below the doors on the side are still body-color instead of platinum.

I think they will be platinum, too.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I live in Italy and I just changed workplace and I have the car as benefit.
Yesterday I went to the Jeep dealer for a GC Summit and he said they have a couple ready for delivery.
The color will be black + black leather interiors.

Do you think it may worth the wait of 2-3 month for a MY15? And why?

If I don't buy it immediately I will have to rent a smaller car with my money as I can't stay without.

Thank you,
Roberto

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Hi francorg,
my current daily driver is a Dodge Charger MY 2011 with acoustic windshield and side windows. If you prefer a quiet ride this is really worth it. There is e.g. very little wind noise from the mirrors.

I just ordered the JGC 2015 Summit Diesel (delivery ~10/2014) and I'm pretty glad that it will have those new features. It has even active noise cancelling, however this feature has to prove if it is effective yet.

BTW, I believe the JGC Summit MY2014 already has the acoustic front side windows, so maybe the windshield/rear windows alone are not worth the hassle to acquire a vehicle for a 3-4 month period.
(Maybe you could ask you dealer - after negotiating prices of course - whether he is willing to provide some demo Jeep vehicle for some weeks or even months free of charge :-)

Two more things:
The Platinum Series Group is not available here in Germany (Europe?) according to my Jeep Dealer, and after some research I came to the conclusion that the Summit does not have the skid plates, so I'll have those retrofitted if possible.

Kind regards
Bernd

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I assume that if my 12 Summit's windshield met a horrible fate, I could replace that with the 15 Summit acoustic windshield? Is it just a swap out?

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

First let me say THANKS for all of this excellent information on the 2015 WK2 Milous!

Do you have any additional information or even better, pictures about the California Appearance Package? I'm wondering how much chrome is left on a WK2 with that package.
