That could be the reason for the halogen lights to be updated with the same shape as the HID ones.

Not being sarcastic here but what is it you're seeing that makes you believe that those are halogen headlamps redesigned to now look like the HID's?

That should be a direct link to the image. It's the second one in the set from the article. The GC has the halogen headlamps and not the HID ones. You can see the cut out the HID ones have. It's the only image in the set showing the halogen headlamps. Easy to miss if you are not looking for them.

Interesting, I see what you mean now. In the entire series of pics there are two GC's if you go by the wheels alone. The last pic clearly shows the two of them together.

Outside of the pic you specifically point out there is no other pic of that vehicle (sporting those wheels) that shows the halogen style you're pointing out in the second pic. All the others look like HID's to me. Again, going by the wheels, check out the second to last pic and compare the two.

LOL... weird. Was their a third GC involved?

From what I see there are 3 with the front covered. And the one that looks to be a MY14/15 uncovered. The shots from the rear are hard to tell which is which but based on the dirt on them, it looks to be just the 3.

I see:

Halogen lights one
HID with 18" wheels
HID with 20" wheels

IMO, what they are showing there is what the altitude should have been to begin with. All blacked out. They just need the altitude wheels.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I'm not understanding "reshaping" the halogen headlight... it does look like it has the "led strip" but not the HID's... hmmm

Nothing was added to the halogen lamps from the picture. No LED strip. They just have the same shape as the HID ones with the cutout for the headlamp washers. Make sense?

2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Those are just halogen headlamps exactly the same as on the 2014 Limited. The black bra cover has a piece that goes up and covers the lower inside part of the headlights. I just compared the picture to my parents 2014 Limited and those are the same lights.

Im hoping they are part of the light refresh the 16s are supposed to get. Or they could just be testing something completely unrelated.

The headlamps do appear to be the same in shape and function. Just the shape is different. See:



I have time in my hands today to prove a point

Oh and from zooming into the shots, it does appear like the bumper follows the headlamps now and there is no filler plastic piece. But then again it is a black jeep.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

You guys are still stuck on the headlamp washers? (AKA: The Plastic "Filler" piece)
