Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

I was planning on pulling the trigger on a 15 here in a month or two, but with the 16 coming out with the small refresh, do you guys think it would be better to just wait?

hate to burst your bubble but McLaren and Porsche already has done this. the P1 has electric boost and the Porsche 918 has electric motors too...

that said it would be awesome for a electric boost or a kers style system in the jeep with the hemi

I was ready to buy a '13 when I stumbled on this forum and the talk about the refresh for the '14s. I waited, and the refresh was a bit more extensive and troublesome for the early builds. I got rid of the '14. The '15s seem to have fewer issues. I'm hoping the '16 is a minor refresh, but I'm not going to order until they are on the road for a few months.

By then you'll be thinking that since we're so close, why not wait for the 17?

As we well know, 1st year or 4th... some issues never get resolved. It's always a crapshoot.

At least with the timing of my lease end I should be in a position to go 16 or 17. If Fiat really F's it up then I'll have to find something else.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

Flipper Glass My wife and I use it on her 2011... makes it easy to put plastic shopping bags in and out.

2016 - Wait for it. (This recommendation is not what Jeep wants you to do). At this stage I think you should see what a 75th Anniversary SE is going to look like. All versions but a base Laredo are pricey so you might as well compare it... if you don't like it you'll find 2015s on a good deal. My dealer still has 4 2014 4x4 Limiteds sitting on the lot.

BTDT - which is why I am now driving a '15 Ford instead of my '14 Jeep.
