Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I think it's time for Jeep to publish some genuine images about this package. After all, the order-banks have opened and I think customers should know exactly what they will be getting.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Yea, but the marketing introduction is still months away...so I doubt we'll see anything except what Milous can scrounge...

No doubt about that - I just don't like it...

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

excellent info thread, thanks all!
noob here, obviously don't have a jgc, but interested.
like quiet so new acoustic glass and active noise cancellation on '15 summit is of interest.
maybe not the right place to post, but couple of questions...
- i've only looked a little into the uconnect 'apps' and system in general, but my impression was the apps aren't that great - don't really want to use my phone data plan for pandora, etc. or sign up for the car data service / hot spot... opinions?
- just watched alex on cars review of uconnect and he says the hot spot feature is 3g only, is that right? dealer told me it uses sprint, correct?
- listened to hk audio, only briefly, on radio, and like alex on cars review also said, it seems a bit bass and highs heavy? maybe the eq gives enough leeway to get it sounding kinda 'straight'.
- navigation - when i saw it i wondered why it doesn't occupy full screen with map, that the different system mode buttons stay below, but apparently the nav system is a garmin app running within the uconnect setup, is that right? frankly i'd prefer not to get nav now as i can use my phone, but i guess with a summit there's no choice.
- the panoramic roof is huge, but i wish i could get the vehicle without it! in florida it isn't very useful.
- the reg cherokee apparently has lane departure but the jgc doesn't which is disappointing.

on a positive note obviously i like the vehicle or i wouldn't be posting here. for ref i currently have an '06 v8 rwd explorer which interestingly is VERY similar in size to the jgc. i don't need 3 rows, but i like the cargo space of an suv and i want a comfy quiet smooth vehicle. doesn't have to be rocket as that just means tickets these days. the jgc ride is definitely cushier than the explorer's. my old explorer is still quiet and i find the factory audio to be very good.

any feedback appreciated... thanks!

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Brand new to this forum and this is my first post. I just read 43 pages of posts about the upcoming changes for the 2015 GC. It seems most of the questions have been answered and the only question I have is this;

Will the rear flipper glass return for the MY15?

I know it's small item and the bean counters are trying to save costs, but I use that flipper glass in every SUV I've owned. I use it all the time in my 2008 V8, Pathfinder.

Any info on that would be great. Thanks.

You actually have a range of models to choose from - all of them handy and useful.

I agree with you 100%. The flipper glass is a great feature to have. I use it all the time. There were some lame reports as to why they won't bring it back but we all know it's b/c of $$. Well, you know what? I'd gladly pay $500 to have it- they continue to make poor decisions in my opinion and they may lose me as a future buyer if it keeps up.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Any news of any tweaks to the DEF injector for '15 to make less vulnerable to damage?

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I just noticed that the EcoDiesel says "late availability." Is that true, is it not possible to order a diesel right now, or is that a leftover copy/paste from the '14 thread?

2015 diesel ordering has been closed due to a launch delay, and is not expected to re-open until August or September.
