2016 GC Summitt - when available?

Long time reader, first time posting.

So, I am 70% sure I will buy a GC Summit this mid July 2015...but was curious if anyone had any firm knowledge when the 2016's will be available?

MY16 vehicles will not be physically available until first quarter calendar 2016. MY15 is extended a bit to accommodate this. MY16 will have a slight refresh for the last two model years for this platform. No confirmed details have been released about what those small changes will actually be, although there is indication of some minor appearance things, some potential additional tech and maybe some engine options.

Um...the current platform has been in production since mid/late 2010 and was developed back when Daimler was involved in the company. The same generation Merc ML350 shared the same platform and is remarkably similar in the interior. There was a "refresh" for MY14 and there will be a minor refresh for MY16 in celebration of 75 years for Jeep. A new platform is slated for the MY18 model year--it was originally going to be for MY17, but they seem to have extended a year. So that's a pretty good run for the current JGC platform...8 model years. I'm not sure why that angers you, but it is what it is.

Anticipated new/enhanced safety features for 2016 or 2017-up Grand Cherokee models:

Electronic brake-force distribution Optimizes stopping distances and control under all vehicle loading conditions by regulating braking pressure, front-to-rear.
Electronic parking brake (EPB) with Safe Hold Console-lever electronic parking brake supplants conventional pull-handle/push-pedal system; can be activated while driving (pull up switch and hold); can be released automatically by engaging forward or reverse gears with driver buckled in and door closed; also features Safe Hold, which stops the vehicle using the motor on caliper (MOC) at each rear wheel if driver unlatches seat belt and opens door without placing vehicle in park.
Full-speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus Radar and camera technology combine to determine if frontal impact appears imminent. If so, system pre-fills brakes, then transmits audible and visual warnings for driver to intervene. No response triggers brief brake application as tactile alert; if driver remains unresponsive and frontal collision risk remains, brakes are applied to slow vehicle before impact. System can bring vehicle to full stop if speed is reduced below 20 miles per hour.
LaneSense Departure Warning-Plus Alerts and assists driver with corrective action; leverages electronic power steering (EPS) to deliver subtle steering-wheel input when system detects need for course correction.
ParkSense Parallel/Perpendicular Park Assist Ultrasonic parking sensors on bumper guide driver into parking space. The system automatically controls steering-wheel angle, driver controls, gear position, brake, and accelerator. Parallel parking possible on either side of vehicle; for perpendicular parking, vehicle backs itself into space. ParkSense front and rear park assist systems with stop and release in reverse, at low speeds, ultrasonic sensors detect stationary objects. If imminent collision is detected, system will provide a momentary, autonomous brake pulse, then release. Below 4.4 mph, system will bring vehicle to a stop before releasing.

Re: 2016 GC Summitt - when available?

The 2014 refresh IMO is like an all new car compared to the 11-13's. Because it was such a drastic refresh, I can only imagine going into the '16 will just be minor. I wouldn't be too worried about it.
