I got a HEMI badge on my 2014 so it ain't no sleeper...

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The production of the 2016 is set to start in roughly two months (November). They have know what it's going to look like at this point. When should we reasonably expect to start seeing some photos of the elusive refresh?

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Protect', the official marketing stuff isn't going to happen until the sales kickoff very late in the year. There is always the possibility that Milous will get access to photos earlier, but given there are not any substantial differences between MY14/15 and MY16, there's not going to be a lot to see...

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Well, at least the lights should look different, since it says "light refresh" and different looking lights can make quite a difference regarding the looks of a car.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

So sept 1 we should finally see what constitutes a "light refresh" amongst other things. Nice

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Real bummer about no Cherry Red anymore. Also electric steering is the worst. Completely removes any kind of steering/handling feel in any car I've tried so far. What a shame (

Pentastar upgrade for the V6 is nice though.
