Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I ordered my 2016 Grand Cherokee Summit on 12/04/15. I was told today it has a ship date of 1/19/16.
Looking forward to it! Bright white with the Sienna Brown and Black interior.
So I should see it by the end of January.

I think that's mine you are talking about. I ordered the same Summit in white with the same interior on 12/07/15 and was told from my dealer on Christmas eve it has a ship date of 1/19/2016. My birthday is January 20th and this is a present from my wife.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Don't get too geeked up about those ship dates. Ask anyone who ordered a 2014... or 2011.

That is all.

"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."
Is this going to be standard equipment? If so, I'm so glad I bought a 15 without all that crap.
People need to quite being distracted while driving then you wouldn't need all this nanny shit.

I'm interested in the green as well. Does anyone have any photos of the color?

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Not sure if it's worth waiting for, but I know it has been asked about.

"Fiat Chrysler Automobiles said Monday that the fourth-generation version of its Uconnect infotainment system will include both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, making the Auburn Hills automaker the latest manufacturer to embrace the two systems."

There is no Laredo-based Altitude for MY16. That could change in the future, but for now, that special edition is done. The Overland-based High Altitude special edition has continued, however.
