Nice to know - I just ordered a 75th Limited and don't remember seeing that in the list online when I configured it. Been wanting that for awhile now.

I was rather happy about this too...I already have the GY AT Adventures on my '14 and wasn't looking forward to dropping another grand on tires after buying my '16.

Congrats! I'm going to order a 75th anniversary limited too as soon as the Advanced Tech package comes back online...

I didnt get a chance to use it but im assuming its a simple 1 touch button to ignore a call and send a pre-filled text message to whomever is calling. I think thats an awesome feature that I hope they keep in future models

If you're an Apple iPhone user like me, that button doesn't work. It's grayed out. Gotta use Siri as a work around. Can't wait to see if the Apple Car Play makes it any easier.

I understand, but the adaptive cruise control is really nice on road trips, have it now in my Overland and would miss it!

Curious... how well does that work when the lens is plastered with road salt in winter?

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

It works pretty well unless it is really slushy out, even then works until you have quite a bit of buildup (like at least for an hour of driving in the snot). I only have it give me a warning it isn't operative maybe 3 times a winter, and then you just have to wipe it off. There is snow from mid-October through April up here in Hayward...

Yeah it takes a good bit of obstruction before you get a warning i think i only had it warn twice in three years. Once going through snow over the bumper and the other was raIn so intense you couldnt drive faster than 20 mph and even then it was only off line about 5 seconds

I uusally only use the cruise out on open road anyway. I dunno...I've been really hesitant on all this auto braking stuff. Same with all the auto park features on other cars.

I have turned the collision braking feature off after it tried to stop a couple times in close traffic when it didn't need to, but the adaptive cruise control and the blind spot warning are very nice features. I wouldn't want another vehicle without the adaptive cruise control on it.

This is the singular thing that folks must deal with relative to ACC and FCW with the JGC implementation that puts the radar sensor down under the bumper. I've just got into the habit of regularly wiping it in the same way I do that for the rear camera and the headlights. Salt happens...

ACC is a must-have for me at this point. We got a similar feature on my wife's new Outback, too, because I insisted on it. (which I could do since I'm spotting half the money. )
