Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The 2016 GC Brochure is now available on the Jeep website for those that havent seen it. HA is officially listed for 2016.

I was looking at that yesterday and I can't tell if the HA also has black window trim as well or if maybe it's a bad rendering. Can't tell at all zoomed in.

Unfortunately, they continue to not get it and partially attend to chromed/polished trim...the window trim remains the normal "bright" chrome/polished aluminum. Never have bought into the mixed trim finishes myself, but there are remedies with money and hassle.

They also dropped the trivalent chrome on the HA. They went with gloss black everything accents. It is becoming even more tempting with those changes. Now if they change the window trim to be black too, I will probably be sold.

I love that it doesn't have the chrome sideview mirrors and door handles. Kind of like the Summit Platinum package.

I hadn't caught that. I ordered a 2016 Granite Crystal on December 23rd and now I wait with much more anticipation to see what has changed from 2015.

The waiting is always the worst part but always worth it in the end. Looking forward to seeing pictures when you get it.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Anyone know when the order blanks will open for the 75th anniversary models? I'm thinking of trading in for one, really like the look.

I got that information from the 2016 brochure.

https://www.jeep.com/assets/pdf/eBro...rokee_2016.pdf

It states that the facias, fog lamp surrounds and badging are gloss black. (Page 29 of brochure.) and from the picture they have there it also looks like the grille rings and the window surrounds are too.
