Thanks for uploading the pic. I'm still trying to come to a decision on purchasing a 2015 Overland or Summit in Granite Crystal Metallic and was interested in seeing how the Platinum package looks on the Summit in that specific color.

Pretty much identical interior leather color as the 2011-2013 Saddle color.

See photo from my 2011 Overland Summit with Saddle...

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I agree that the "new" interior option is pretty much identical in color to my Saddle interior...and I'm glad they brought it back. As I've stated a number of times, "some of us" hate dark interiors. This isn't perfect but at least it's not all black or all dark brown! Personally, I hope when I get a new Summit in a few years that I can get a tan or ivory colored interior...

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Has anyone had a chance to compare the Active Noise Control on the 2015 Summit to a 2014 yet? Trying to decide on picking up a 2014 Summit diesel vs waiting to order a 2015. Not that the noise control is a deal maker, but the more info on pros and cons the better.

I am going to when I get back in town, but I will be doing my comparison with a HEMI, which isn't as loud as the diesel. My guess is that the Active Noise Cancellation and acoustic glass make a noticeable difference, especially with the diesel.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Posted on AllPar today

According to sources within the company, the Ram 1500 diesel is taking off in sales, to the point where it is taking up over a quarter of production on some days.
The VM 3.0 is a state-of-the-art engine, which produces around the same torque as the Hemi V8, albeit with lower horsepower. Tow ratings of diesel 1500s are between those of the V6 and V8 gasoline engines, but fuel economy beats all other full-size and mid-size trucks, along with some four-cylinder compacts.

The company has, according to one source, diverted the diesels from the Grand Cherokee, where they’ve garnered less attention, to the pickups. This could be to increase CAFE ratings, to take advantage of the Rams’ publicity, or because the engine is responsible for boosting Ram sales more than Grand Cherokee sales — the latter limited mainly by the factory’s capacity.
While there have been anecdotal reports of customers not getting the Grand Cherokee Diesels they ordered, a Chrysler spokesman wrote, “2015 Grand Cherokee models equipped with the EcoDiesel engine are scheduled to begin production by October 1. We are working closely with our dealers to ensure customers get their choice of a 2014 diesel-equipped model (available now), or a 2015 model, which can be ordered in early September.”
VM is increasing their V6 capacity, though some critics said they are doing too little, too slowly, in light of what appears to be burgeoning demand for the high-tech powerplants. Their four-cylinder engines are also to be used in the Chevrolet Cruze, while Nissan Titan is adopting a Cummins V6 as the American aversion to diesels rapidly fades.

I love my '14 Summit JGC Hemi BUT it is not very quiet inside. It's okay but you really notice how loud it is inside (to others) when you are on the other end of a phone call that is bluetooth thru stereo. To the person calling you it is quite noisy in the background. When I am doing serious phone work I have to close the pano shade to help reduce the background noise to my call partner.

My JGC Overland is one of the quietest vehicles I've ever owned, and that history of ownership includes 5 Lexus vehicles, most specifically two LS sedans that are widely accepted as one of the quietest vehicles produced.

Ambient noise on a bluetooth call is more an issue of quality of the bluetooth connection and system.

I humbly beg to differ. Single largest thing affecting what the other caller hears is the cabin sound/noise of you the caller when in hands free mode. Gotta imagine there us a reason they spent R&D $ to bring new quieting windshield/side window glass to market and aound canceling tech. Of course the connection, stereo microphone, bluetooth radio, etc have significant impact as well. My infinity is dead silent as were my 3 and 5 series BMW's. Almost got a BMW X5 on this issue alone. That thing is a ghost town inside no matter what semi is next to you, IMHO.

It's a highly personal and subjective thing tho.
