A had saddle on 11 Overland and the blue/brown on 14 Ovld. Liked the saddle much better overall and got so many compliments on it. That will be choice again for 17 Summit - still anxious to see what that color will look like with the new style. Patience isn't my strong suit, so hoping to get some leaked pics soon!

Nice little video... They had the 3.6L with advanced tech package, Lux, recon green with the black perf seats. I opted for the Hemi and did without advanced tech.

I think I'd add the rock rails before hitting Moab or rubicon tho...

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition

My 2011 has 58 miles of warranty left on the 60k contract and I really REALLY love the look of the 75th but I'm nervous I'll like the 2017 better. Does anyone know if the 17s will keep the front ... I despise the smiling non-fitting front bumper on the 14s.

In the pictures of the trailhawk and the summit that have been released the dreaded "black plastic" filler is not present. They appear to both use the 75th anniversary style front fascia.

SO FAR, you'll need to upgrade to the Summit for the "new look" front.
Your Question I've been pestering about for months and, SO FAR, no absolute definitive answer for the Overland, Limited or Laredo 2017's. AND that is why
I have "thrown in the towel" (or will be in about 6 weeks) and ordering my 2016 75th Laredo E with the 23F (75th version) Front End ! Plus the other goodies, and I will be adding the ORA1 for select terrain & hill descent etc. ! ONLY DECISION LEFT: Body and Interior colors ? ? ?
Good Luck in your Decision process, mine has been a real "barn burner" !
Can I say "ball buster"?

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition

HELP, PLEASE, ANYONE - My problem? Goodyear, JEEP, & a Local Dealer Sales jerk! Why? Spent past 2 days in Total Frustration with all these people trying to get what you would think be a simple thing . . . Trying to find out Specifically what the Michelin & Goodyear Model tires come on the G.C. I plan to order. Under Jeeps Specs page for the 75th Laredo E they list each of these 2 Brands but do not say which model tire ! They all come across as "Dumbfounded"! Freaks me out !
I'm hoping to find what Tire comes with MY Jeep (as above) having the ORA1 Option ! ?
WHY? So that if it is not one I prefer, I can perhaps Negotiate a change or swap at the dealer or at worst BUY what I want, as long as "IT FITS" - that being the Key, cause I do not know the MAX ALLOWABLE OD of the OEM tire(s) is !? I'm guessing the Goodyear spec is the "basic" Wrangler tire ? That won't due for my purposes, thus I'd try and get the Dealer to buy for me (dealer less cost thing).
I want the Goodyear AT Adventure w/Kevlar . . . Expensive at $216 each in 265/60R18.
These have an OD of 30.5," and the Goodyear site says they are "approved for the 2015 G.C. Laredo. They have NO listings for any 2016's yet, and the idiot on the phone was totally clueless ! Willing to go to a 255 IF it will not be an issue with the 18" Rim.
With my previous discussions about a potential swap of Rims to a 17" Wrangler 75th (because it is similar to the G.C.'s) and decision to TRY & keep less complicated I's decided to stick with the 18" 75th wheels ! ! ! ANYBODY still with me ?
I have yet to SEE a 75th Laredo other than online and they all seem to have the OnRoad Michelins !
Any suggestions on other AT on/off road tires for the stock 18" Rims (what would their OD's be ? Very Much appreciated for any advice, I have no clue, just trying to be SAFE out there AND on the road too ! ! !

From what I have seen on lots you get the on road Michelin's unless you get ORAII (which I don't think you can even get until a limited). With ORAII you get the Goodyear AT Adventure w/kevlar.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition

Fly', AFAIK, the Laredo based vehicles with 18" wheels get the Michelin Premier LTX Black Sidewall All-Season tires for MY16.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition

Just took a 2016 Limited 75th anniversary home. Came with the extra tech package and Nav.

MSRP was 46,000 and some change.

Leased for 39 months 12,000 miles a year for $525 out the door. No money down. I paid nothing today, not even first month or taxes/fees.

Pretty good deal I think? They took around $5200 off MSRP.

The dealer put it in the HC spot! lol


Edit: I don't know why they are coming out sideways, they are normal on my PC.

Congrats! You'll love it!

It looks like it has the LED running lights and HID head lights. Did it come with the pano moon roof? I might be mistaken but it looks like the LUX package...

Maybe he put it in the HC spot because it didn't have ORA2?

Nice ride!
