You had reported this as a 2016 change previously though. Is this and the fact that it's not on wk2jeeps.com or in the first post anymore means they nixed it for 2016? If so, why?

Under 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee, new items, it used to show electronic parking brake but has been removed.

If you didn't save a copy, you can't prove anything ... so no E-Brake for you next year.

I am presuming, based on previous years, about a month before production starts (Dec 23)... what confuses me is why such a late start for 2016 (and an even later start of April 2016 for some colors) and how can they start production during Christmas break?... won't the plants be closed between Christmas and New Years... thus, if so, production won't start until Jan 2016?

and the 2017's are supposed to start orders in June and production in July 2016?

I read that the delay is due to the upgrades to the V6 not being ready for prime time.

The dates for the colors is a mystery.

2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The 2016 is seeming like a shit show. They shoved out the 2014 like a year early. Can we get some consistency here? Meet in the middle somewhere lol

If this is because of the Pentastar not being ready, the GC is the first to get this updated engine, I'd avoid the Pentastar V6 all together. Most likely a crappy functioning motor, with a junk transmission.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I don't have an issue with going to the PUG next year as long as the user can disable it. In a way it'll be nice to get a more HD battery and starter as part of it.

Edited to clarify... specifically the ability to disable the start/stop feature. Thanks Bill.
