Likely almost nonexistent, or completely nonexistent. The changes appear to be some interior, and on the component level, not exterior.

That's a good thing. But different wheels are rumored right? That should be interesting.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The projected changes for MY16 will not be significant, IMHO. It's not like the MY14 introduction when the front end look changed very noticeably because of the headlight format and grill renovation. As far as I can tell from what Milous and others have stated, it's mostly a bunch of "little things" that provide incremental changes/improvements/additions. You're not going to see "real changes" until the new platform debuts, currently expected as a MY19 release.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

There will be some differences, for sure...but we shouldn't expect them to be "earth shattering" based on what's known to-date. Jeep seems to be tinkering with refinements on things that need changed (many folks haven't liked the shifter, for example, that's on MY14-15) and adding some tech that has been in the running to add for some time now. Since you're shooting for the Summit, you'll likely get a few new "toys" as they have been pretty good at adding things to that trim level each iteration. (I'm a Summit guy, too, and look forward to what comes with that when I eventually do get a new one)

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Edmunds has 2016 pricing info. No idea if it's accurate, of course, but it's different from what they show for 2015.

No Altitude model is shown; HA is there.

Limited only shows OR-II available; no OR-I.

Haven't drilled down any further than that.
