I thought those were supposed to be pretty darn good tires?

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Just checked jeep.com, and there still running the cherokee altitude for 2016 with some nice upgrades, so hopefully they'll do the same for the grand cherokee

I wonder, with the production for the '16 JGC down to only 6 or 7 months, if they will bother with all the variations. I would think they will keep a 75th anniversary edition, 'cause putting that off until MY17 just won't work.

Not so great for wear apparently, the reviews on that tire all seem to state that they wear very quickly bit do a decent job out the gate.

That is disappointing. I put them on my 1955 pickup but as it's undergoing a restoration it hasnt had any miles put on them.

On my Commander, I have the Silent Armors -- which the All Terrain Adventures were supposed to be the replacement for -- and I have almost 60,000 miles on them with plenty of tread left.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

If you guys want to see Light Brownstone Pearl, go to Jeep.com and look at the Cherokee it actually it doesn't look to be so "gold" actually quite a nice looking color.

Considering it is going to be a short model year, that doesn't give them much time for MY16 Ivory vehicles. Summits will initially be Black, White and Gray. Maybe Brite White is in my future.

Ivory production start is now set for 2/15/2016.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I see there is now a Night Package for the SRT. Is that going to be similar to the Red Vapor package? All black outside badging and assuming all black inside because of the name?

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I'm going to guess that the Indigo blue interior is not going to happen? I have been eagerly waiting for my '15 order to come in (diesel + indigo + HK + QDII, TeckPkg - ordered 4 weeks ago on the second to last day order banks were open) and it just came in. The dealership discovered that 1) indigo was placed on 'restricted' status and rather than calling about it they just went w/ a beige interior rather than black. I'd have done black but don't want beige.

Waiting to hear if they can locate a black interior one w/ all other requirements being the same but the diesel makes that a tough search.

And now I see that the order and production dates have been pushed out on the 16s. Shitty day for me...

Dealer should have called, that sucks. Indigo is an awesome interior in the first post it says it will be available for the 16'. Maybe orders are maxed for it? Anyway I wouldn't settle you won't be happy.
