That is what my 2016 limited with ORAII and 18" wheels came with.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Sorry, I'm sure this has been covered but can't seem to find. What are the differences in the MY16 Summit vs HA?

From what I recall, no more headliner, headlights; I know about the HK and cosmetic stuff ( chrome, wood inlays, and seats). And of course the suspension.

What am I missing?

Off the top of my head: laminated sound dampening glass on the rear doors, active noise cancelation, higher quality leather, and then all of the things that are optional on a overland (air suspension, adaptive cruise, forward crash, nav, tow package, etc).

Australia will definitely be getting 2016 models, in fact some have already been delivered to dealers and many more are enroute. This includes the 75th Anniversary models.

Great thank you very much! That helps a lot.

I didn't think to check that PDF, I only checked the Tires/Wheels page which didn't appear to have the new AT tires for 2016.

I'm trying to figure out what rubber it comes with so I know how pressing the need will be to upgrade the tires.
Like these: Goodyear Wrangler All Terrain Adventure Kevlars
Good compromise between off road and highway-I've had them on unpaved forest service roads and they are perfect in my NC mountains. On the highway they are quiet and give a great ride. I can't imagine you would need to upgrade unless you are into serious off roading, in which case you probably wouldn't want a JGC anyway!

Thanks for the photo! I'd only seen the Laredo 18" and not the overland polished version, they look much nicer. Those Goodyear tires will be fine, my main concern was that it would come with the Latitudes or other all season rather than the A/T. I'm really glad they finally put a decent tire with the ORAII package.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

You will love your 2016 Overland. I have about 1600 miles on mine and am very pleased. I will say the 18 inch tires really compliment the style. I have had numerous people stop and look at the 18" wheels-they are striking and nicely done.

When people see the "Trail Rated" badge and then see the wheels it really sets this Overland apart with the OR II package.

Enjoy!

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

How is it that the price is identical for this between the US and Canada and for other items like the HK upgrade we pay about double? ($1,995 CDN) Sometimes there is no logic at all...

Don't worry, FCA is not dissing just you Canadians....why does the HK option in US cost $995 in the Overland but $1,995 in the SRT when both have the exact same standard 9 speaker system as baseline? Answer = No friggin' idear
