Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

So good to see "Tan" in the Summit interior listing...finally.

I was thinking about the brown and black, but I think the tan interior will look better with a white exterior. I was hoping to see a pearl white, but I guess not.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

When will FCA reveal their plans for CarPlay? 2016 availability? Updatable software on earlier models with 8.4 system? They're killing me here.

Nice that they offer it, but I'd still stick with black.

Subjective thing...I dislike black enough that I'd not take it even at great discount. So it's nice to have this new choice!

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Nappa leather-faced with perforated inserts — Indigo Blue/Jeep Brown with Pearl accent stitching and piping - Standard on Overland

I was thinking about the blue/brown in my next Jeep. Then I saw a pic of this with the pearl piping. It looks really strange and out of place to me.

I can't come to terms with the blue. It reminds me of my grandmas early 90s Yukon with the same exact color interior. Yuck.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

For as much as I really don't care for black, it looks like the only choice I can live with. At least the copper accent stitching will look better than the white they use now.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Nice that they offer it, but I'd still stick with brown. LOL

Glad they are offering a lighter color again in the Summit --- the black and brown options were pretty similar. I wonder if the "tan" will really be the old "new saddle"?

The Bright White looks good with any interior...it really is a nice white and am glad I bought one.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Hmm, no mention of lane assist yet they added electric power steering.
Maybe it needs full electric steering to properly implement lane assist.
