Yes, 3.6L only. Don't know of any plans at this time to bring it to the 3.0L.

Yes, + electric power steering and decreased tire rolling resistance.

Decreased tire rolling resistance? Could it be they are getting rid of the Forteras finally? Maybe the new Michelin Premier LTX that just came out in the OEM 265/50R20 size?

Thanks Milous, no more forteras! That is the best thing i have heard on these changes, guess they had enough of all the balance issues with the forteras. Those Pirelli Scorpion (assume they mean the newer plus version) are number one on tire rack for suv touring tires. And the ORAII package gets offroad tires now. Glad they have moved to more quality tires that is good news.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Here's a quick little comparison of the Pirelli Scorpions and the Bridgestone Ecopia H/L 422 All Terrain tires along with another Goodyear tire.

Nice to see an A/T tire available with the off road package.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I like what I'm reading here so far. Guess my targeted MY17 won't be 'the same' as my current ride after all...

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Any chance of a rear ELSD or locker with the PUG in the ORAII package?
