Do you think the Black Forest Green will make a return in 2017 after the Recon Green 75th color is gone?

Slower production. Everything is behind.

Should be soon. Parts are starting to show up.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I figure I'd stir the pot with a quote from a driver at work:

"I'm so glad that they finally put a normal shifter in here again. This is the best one since the WJ."

Ouch. lol.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Did they add a piece of chrome trim to the bottom of the storage compartment?

The storage compartment directly below the stereo system

Looks like it.

I'd like to retrofit this shifter if possible.

i thought all the interior lighting and dash was white, that looks light blue. When did they make the change to a light blue dash? Is the 8.4 inch screen still grey?

I recall a post a month or a few months back that mentioned the storage area door in the center console had a trim piece on the edge for better alignment --- apparently (and I remember those posts) people complaining that the door came misaligned a lot...

I can understand it from a technical aspect, but did they really need to add another chrome piece? There was NO other possible solution other than adding more chrome to the interior?

In FCA's eyes, no. It would be too difficult for them to increase build quality. Instead, they'll slap another piece of plastic on there to hide the misalignment lol
