Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Velvet red is maroon? Kind of like the garnet red on my old 2002 Jeep?

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Tried to search for this and couldn't find anything, so I'm sorry if this has been covered.. I'm considering buying a '15 summit V8 right now. Doesn't seem like a lot of changes in store for the MY 16. One thing I would wait for is a self parking ability, mostly just don't trust the little lady (or myself as much anymore) at parallel parking in town. I see the change listed is for park assist with stop and release. Is that the self-parking feature? or has that info not been made available yet? Thanks all for the help.

The park assist with stop and release is basically a parking aid/safety feature...it's not the parallel self-park function. From the looks of it, the latter will likely not be in the 2016 model year (I'm betting it shows up for MY2017).

That would be my bet as well. I certainly hope so because MY17 would be my next one and I certainly want something new...

since the Sept press release was devoid of any reference to this (maybe I missed it?) I just wanted to add the 10/11/15 wk2jeeps blurb on it:

"Anticipated new/enhanced safety features for 2016 and 2017-up Grand Cherokee models:

Electronic brake-force distribution Optimizes stopping distances and control under all vehicle loading conditions by regulating braking pressure, front-to-rear.

Electronic parking brake (EPB) with Safe Hold Console-lever electronic parking brake supplants conventional pull-handle/push-pedal system; can be activated while driving (pull up switch and hold); can be released automatically by engaging forward or reverse gears with driver buckled in and door closed; also features Safe Hold, which stops the vehicle using the motor on caliper (MOC) at each rear wheel if driver unlatches seat belt and opens door without placing vehicle in park.

Full-speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus (confirmed for 2016 models) Radar and camera technology combine to determine if frontal impact with another vehicle appears imminent; if so, system pre-fills brakes, then transmits audible and visual warnings for driver to intervene; no driver response triggers brief brake application as tactile alert; if driver remains unresponsive and frontal collision risk remains, brakes are applied to slow vehicle before impact; system may bring vehicle to full stop if imminent frontal collision detected at speeds below 25 mph.

LaneSense Departure Warning-Plus Alerts and assists driver with corrective action; leverages electronic power steering (EPS) to deliver subtle steering-wheel input when system detects need for course correction.

ParkSense Parallel/Perpendicular Park Assist Ultrasonic parking sensors on bumper guide driver into parking space. The system automatically controls steering-wheel angle, driver controls, gear position, brake, and accelerator. Parallel parking possible on either side of vehicle; for perpendicular parking, vehicle backs itself into space.

ParkSense front and rear park assist systems with stop and release (confirmed for 2016 models) in reverse, at low speeds, ultrasonic sensors detect stationary objects. If imminent collision is detected, system will provide a momentary, autonomous brake pulse, then release. Below 4.4 mph, system will bring vehicle to a stop before releasing."

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The jeep website makes no mention of any new features for the 2016. Im sure the above listed will be released for the MY17, but for MY16 the features listed are exactly the same as the MY15.

Well except for the shifter of course.

Find a local Chrysler dealership and see if they have any Red Velvet Pearlcoat Chrysler 200's in stock. Go look at it the sunshine and then on a cloudy day. In sunshine it's a rich dark red but on overcast days it's maroon.

Where are you seeing that on the Safety and Security page? What I see on the page is the Forward Collision Warning and the rear backup camera. It talks about the lines and the sensors but doesnt mention anything about stopping itself in reverse.

Basically the features are exactly the same as what is on the MY15 (according to what I am seeing on the jeep page).

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

ya, FCA sucks at keeping the website updated and consistent. i see where it doesn't mention the "stop and release" with the ParkAssist nor the "Full Speed" with the FCW but they are listed as a specific feature when you build one....the build also lists the "configurable drive modes" which are made possible with the new to 16 all electric steering.
