Updated information: The 2016 Wrangler will have the same drivetrain as the current models.

Thanks. Well, dang. I had been hoping I wouldn't have to order the very first PUG off the assembly line.

Any word on whether the 2016 GC will have Android Auto?

What might be the last date for ordering a 2015? I'm wondering how much info we'll have on the 2016 before we lose our chance to order a 2015.

p.s. Just noticed the info page no longer lists the PUG for the 2016 GC. Is that now up in the air also?

Hi Milous:

Can I ask, do you work for Jeep or have contacts?

BTW, you sent me pricing info on Wranglers(thanks!) but we ordered and Overland which was built last week and hopefully will be delivered this week.

Decided to pull the trigger early and just purchased a MY15 Overland black on black.

Can wait to pick it up today!

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

So what's up with the disappeared PUG info for '16 GC on WK2Jeeps.com?

Dunno. With the looming 2016 CAFE standards, you have to believe that every car maker will be putting its best foot forward with enhanced MPGs technology for next years models. As for the GC, you have to expect start/stop and the PUG (direct injection) for the V6 - I sure am!

Agree, seems strange. I actually want start-stop in my next vehicle as well. The FCA design seems to get good reviews in '15 Cherokee and some RAM 1500 V6's which have it now (compared to many poor reviews about the BMW design for example). Might be up for PUG too, although if they don't add rear LSD or locker option I'd have to go for the diesel (or just keep my '08 WK 4.7L longer and enjoy the low gas prices ).

Interesting that the all new GC and Wrangler will arrive at the same time.

Thank you! Yeah I've been refreshing both of the pages just about every day, haha. I don't see it listed, but does there seem to be any chance of a "Trail-something" GC going into production?

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

If they put start/stop in the GC then I'll be driving something other than Jeep when it happens.
