Say whats??? A model 2015 is a model 2015. CV boot issue resolved.

Any change in body style of 2015 JGC Laredo E? Tough to buy a car sight unseen.

No changes for the Laredo E; MY2014 is identical to MY2015.

Sorry if my post was confusing, but yeah you're right, 2015 model = CV Boot resolved. I concur.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

^^^^^^^

CV boot issue has been identified and resolved for 2014 ... they just need to finish rolling out the replacements. It isn't a big ongoing issue...

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I have nothing but issues with my 14 Overland radio Nav system and its been replaced twice. I thought the 15 was going to have an upgrade with a bigger hard drive for music and more Ram to deal with the "not enough ram" issues. Also they were going to fix the SD card slot issue. Any word on an upgrade on any of that on the new Overland 15?

No changes have been reported for the Overland that I can recall. MY14 was the first year for the "RA" series sound systems; not likely that they would change them again only a year later. I wonder if there is something external in the system that is making your radio/NAV system fail?

Yes I understand that.

In my particular case I chose not to buy a 2014 JGC 2,3,4 months ago just in-case it had the known CV Boot or DPF issues. I will, however, order very soon as I know that these issues have been resolved. By the time I place my order it will be the 2015 model.

Let's move on now, PLEASE!

Yup, and hoping that those of us that have ordered will move into D1 build status or later.

Between Marlon and Milous, it's been pretty quiet around here.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I suspect there are not going to be many more "details" relative to MY15. For the most part, it's the same as MY14 other than a few new things for the Summit and the ability to order some options with other trim levels that were not permitted previously. But you never know for sure!

I hear ya Jim, but there are bound to be little things like for example a 4g modem instead of 3g.
