I thought that option was only ever available on the Cherokee not the Grand Cherokee.

The FCA MY16 press release details it as a feature.

My MY14 JGC owners manual actually has a page for Lane Departure Warning (LDW) feature that also did not make MY15. I believe it has made MY16 tho?

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The Jeep web site has lots of build and info updates on the 2016's I just noticed....maybe other already have.

How are you liking the High Altitude?

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Well...we've also heard about the addition of the acoustic windshield to the Limited...but according to the features list released, it specifically does not have that (only on the Summit again, from that release).

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Jeep needs to get the latest stuff onto its flagship Grand Cherokee --- the Cherokee has had features for years that the Grand Cherokee doesn't have which is getting a tad ridiculous considering things are in the manual but not on any model. Of all the vehicles to put in resources, the Grand Cherokee is the one.

I don't know if this is the case with Jeep, but years back GM would try new things on Pontiac before incorporating them (or dropping them) into the Chevrolet line. Olds was the 'test vehicle' for Buick and Cadillac.

It's also possible Jeep is waiting until the full redesign to dump everything into it. That would make it a MY to skip.

If the full redesign would only be a year away, that would be O.K.

As for lane assist and auto parking, Jeep has now made the necessary steering-update available for MY16 so I expect those features for MY17.

Jeep also has to watch out for the competition. Lincoln MKX, the new Caddy XT5 and many others are already offering the features in question (both also offer full LED-headlights, BTW).

The all-new Grand Cherokee will hit the lots when? In three years?

IMO, waaay too long to introduce features that are already offered by the competition. Heck, my 2013 Lincoln MKZ already had full LEDs, auto-park and lane assist.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

BTW, Jeep also has to keep current owners (like myself) in mind.

My lease will expire when the MY17 will be out. Since I already know that I will be getting the same exterior design, I certainly EXPECT a bunch of technological updates that can convince me after three years of ownership that I won't be BORED by getting another WK2.

And that's why - even for a Jeep enthusiast like me - it does matter that Jeeps keeps an eye on the competition.

The former is leveraging many of the things that many folks wanted but couldn't get with the more base Altitude with a higher margin for Jeep. That doesn't mean they couldn't bring the base Altitude back, but if they do, I'd guess it would be for MY17 which starts production June/July. IMHO, of course...
Jim, Glad to see that you expect MY17 production to start in June/July. My MY14 Overland will be 3 years old the 1st of August and I like to trade every 3 years. Probably will order an MY17 Summit this time. I have had zero problems with my 14 Overland that now has about 22K miles. Al

That's not "my" expectation...it's what's been posted by the insiders.

Doesn't being a "Super Mod" qualify you as an insider?
