Well maybe I'm loosing my mind ? BUT it still is on Milous's site - wk2jeeps - last item on list of 2016 75th "new". I know I've seen it elsewhere, perhaps on other auto sites ! ? BUT who cares, that is not the point, there is no point! All I'd like to know is, was it a typo or IS the new Ombre cloth insert a Gore-tex (type) fabric ? DONE with it, if an answer shows up great if not when the vehicles show up on the lot, time to go see . . .

"Gode-Tex was a typo in the original press release, should have been "Gore-Tex". But they have since edited the press release and removed the word entirely.

Thank You Milous . . . vindication at last . . . I knew I wasn't "loosing it" !

Question is ? Why all the "Mystery" apparent Here ?

Noticed YOU changed YOUR website to a Generic "cloth insert," removing any mention of "Gode-tex". Interesting that you say it should have been Gore-tex, which gets me way back to my ORIGINAL inquiry, hmmmm . . . But, like I promised, "I'm DONE," won't pursue it further, noting the all powerful invisible forces (FCA) at play !

Thank you for posting. It looks alot less "Bronze" in this video which IMO is a good thing. On the jeep website I didn't think the black looked very good with the bronzed accents, but here it looks great. I am personally not a fan of over chroming everything and I really like the body color door handles and other trim.

According to Milous "If you like the 2016 75th, and want Recon Green, production on that color does not launch until 3/01."

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary Edition

Does that mean ordering would not be available until March 1?

MILOUS Indicated on "my thread," March -which apparently puts it only 10 weeks out from when you can order a 2017 !

Specifically, he indicated ordering 11 February for 1 March production start for the color with normal delivery intervals from there. So yea...not that far from MY17 timeframes.
