After a week with it....how the hell did I live without the Hemi?! The new shifter is definitely "easier" to use, I have no qualms with it and would say I like it better than the T-shifter, but that's me. The UConnect system is 100x more responsive than the one in my 2015, the screen almost looks better too, but that might also just be me. Rides better with the QL, though at OR-II, it rides like a tank, especially on the service road I was on. The bronze looks far better in person, and in a way, I'm glad I didn't wait until 2017, since I like the bronze much more than the chrome. Coming from the regular halogen lights to the HID lights, screw regular bulbs. I'll never go back.
Laredo or Limited?

Nice. My lease on my 2014 Limited will be up in Oct, but I will be trading sooner for a 2016 75th edition. I really like the redesigned front bumper compared to my 2014 and love the bronze accents. Mind asking how much you paid for your 2016 75th Limited? BTW, love the granite color, like my 2014.

I saw yours went through Jessup as well - coming to VA? Mine took 3 days from the rail yard to the dealer. The worst was watching it in transit on the train.

For me the train ride was fine. I got to see forward progress every day so all was great. Now though, it's stuck and nothing since 3/19... It's killing me

Yes, VA... Leesburg

If the dealer is Koons, check with them. It may have already gotten there and not updated yet, mine did. They emailed me the afternoon it got there after it was prepped.

Unfortunately not Koons (regretting that now I think) but dealer is on high alert and is trying (supposedly) to find out what's up... It's making them look bad...

Sent a polite but insistent email to the General manager yesterday with a CC to the sales manager to help shake the tree. That seemed to work as they contacted me as soon as it was dropped off at dealer today even before the tracking status page showed it.

Anyway it is here and being prepped and I will be heading out shortly to pick her up. No more OCD status update refreshes for me!

Here is a photo of it going in to service with the plastic still on. More pictures in better light tomorrow and more of a review soon. The recon green is awesome! A little darker in person than the pictures on the website I think.
