There will be a press release on 9/01, with specs and other details, but I wouldn't expect a lot of photos.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I don't quite understand what's new about these 2 features:

• New: Full-speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus
• New: Park assist system with Stop and Release

What is new here? isn't both already there in 2015 models?

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Yes, I've read that, but that doesn't clarify anything for me. Both descriptions sound to me exactly like what is already there in the 2015 models.

These as far as I know already have collision detection when you back out of parking and also have foward collision detection.

Maybe you or someone else can explain the difference to what is already there?

EDIT: Ah now I see it, maybe it's the stationary objects instead of moving objects But I still can't spot the difference in the forward collision.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I think the new park assist will turn the steering wheel for you also. You just sit back, cross your fingers and close your eyes.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Yes, but this part is not confirmed yet, only the part where it says something about the automatic braking for stationary objects.

What you mentioned would definitely be a step up.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Two features already on the Cherokee. The forward collision warning wqs originally only low speed and stationary objects, now works at normal.driving speeds with moving objects.

Park assist with stop and release is what they call the automatic parallel and perpendicular parking system on the Cherokee so I would assume its the same.

Don't close your eyes. You still control the gas, brake, and gear selection, as per instructions on the screen. This sounds like the system Ford uses and is most likely sourced from the same vendor. It required the move to true electric steering.

A survey done on the Ford Escape forum showed that most people (like myself) never use it. Of those that do, most said they only use it to show off for friends and family. City dwellers find it more useful because it determines if a space is big enough and will get you into spots you may have passed on.

My guess is that this is a way for the companies researching self driving cars to derive some income until the full blown autonomous cars hit the market. It will also ease people into the mindset that they can trust their vehicles enough to let go of the wheel.

Edit: SeaComms posted while I was typing. I didn't realize the Cherokee had the feature.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

How does it know whether you want to nose into a spot or back in?

I think it only does back in. I guess if you need help pulling in forward, you need a fully autonomous car. Once you back in, I don't think you get help pulling out.
