Will they have a 2016 Altitude model?

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Why the late start/short production run of the 2016? Is this typical for the relatively small number of changes that are being introduced?

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The new color tan on the Summit interior. Is that going to have carpet that matches the draperies? Something like the Light Frost Beige. Or is it going to be like the Black/ Dark Sienna brown. Where the the seats are tan and the rest of the interior is black?
In fairness it did not state black/tan combo. A medium tan all over would be excellent.

Now on to the Redesigned shifter. What does that really mean? I know , Stay tuned !

Interesting.

So MY19 (CY 2018) will be the launch of the all-new model after all?

I thought that was delayed for another year...

GCO, that is with the delayed year, if I'm not mistaken. Originally it was going to be MY18 released in 2017 for the new platform...again, if I'm not mistaken. MY16/17 was going to be the last for this platform.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I know as of a month or so ago you didn't have confirmation about CarPlay support. Any update on that front? The rest of the updates sound like a nice improvement.

After double-checking, you're probably right. For some strange reason, I had MY20 for the delay in my head.

I certainly prefer MY19 though..

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

So no horsepower increase for both 3.6 and 5.7? That's a bummer

Agreed, the last post said this was possible, but I guess we should just be happy we can still get a V8 at all. I have a feeling those days are numbered.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Thanks for the post. I've been waiting.
Looks like no engine upgrades, either MPG or HP, too bad. The previous post said it was possible, but I guess we should just be happy we can still get a V8 at all. I have a feeling those days are numbered.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

What about the previously mentioned electronic parking brake?
