Was speaking to Jeep Sales today about SRT, apparantly the my16 is being skipped over in Australia and straight to My17 in third quarter sometime. He also advised the supercharged engine will be available

I think they're wrong on both counts.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

thats the information they received from head office- how accurate it is thats another matter- From what i have seen in dealing with Fiat Chrysler Australia in trying to resolve the problems with my car, they have no clue what theyre doing

Can say that we havent seen any my16 SRT for sale here in OZ

100% inaccurate, just checked, the plant has been, and is currently in the process of building 2016 Grand Cherokee SRT's for Australia (and New Zealand).

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Can any MY16 Summit owners confirm if Performance Shock Dampening was added/fixed since the MY15 model?

Do any of you notice annoying bounce while driving?

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Since when did a Summit ever have performance shock dampening?

I'm not aware of any changes to the suspension. A lot of that bounce, and I know exactly what you are talking about is those super soft tires they put on the 20s for the 15 and below models. They changed the tires to a more quality pirelli in the 16+ Summits. On wavy windy roads my 14 summit sometimes got to bouncing so much I almost felt like it was destabilizing a few times. I changed the tires at 10K miles to Michelin which improved it a good bit. It is a heavy SUV so don't expect miracles in the handling department but a more quality tire does noticeably improve it.

Not fixed but added.

Before I purchased my MY15 HA I was in an extended test drive in a Summit and remember the bouncing was annoying. Just wondering if it is the same or if the suspension was tightened up at all.
