Something like that only MY15 will be eligible for future update to be compatible?

I'm asking because I can buy a MY14 already available for immediate delivery or I can wait till September for a MY15.

Thank you,
Roberto
I'm betting that features like Lane Departure will arrive later during the MY15 production; just like the ACC was upgraded to ACC w/Stop in the middle of the MY14 production cycle.

Unless it is ONLY a software feature, my bet is not until 2016.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Would the Android Carplay and the Apple Carplay make the various NAV radios obsolete?

I admit I haven't read the entire thread but could Android and/or Apple Carplay be added to current radios through a firmware upgrade?

No. Both systems are designed as an optional interface that the user can chose instead of the built in nav/music/etc. Simply plug in phone and the Carplay or Android auto interface is enabled.

Basically, yes. It can be added to some systems retroactively such as Uconnect. The bigger question is whether or not Chrysler will do this. Unfortunately, I doubt it. But we are still waiting on specifics from Jeep/Chrysler. **coughmilouscough**

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Interesting option as from the specs I have seen so far, NAV is unavailable for any Laredo packages.

I wonder if Chrysler didn't if a third party might?

Yeah that would be awesome, but it may be more difficult than we know. In the mean time, I guess it's watch and wait while this whole smartphone/auto integration space develops.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Alright, I think I have figured out what the "platinum" color will be. I was reading a thread about the Altitude grille rings, and someone ordered grille rings that were "platinum" instead (by accident). Here is the photo they provided (via Srt8_hmi):



Personally, I am a bit dissapointed in the color. What do you guys think?

Huh? The 2014 GC owner's manual I downloaded (labelled as seventh edition) has a couple pages describing "Lane Departure Warning (LDW) If Equipped".
