Keep a eye on things Marlon. I want to know if there is anything to hold me back from ordering (such as new technology) until they get the bugs out. I'm hoping for a plug and play without weekly updates and a reboot.


I'm planning on a Summit with a Hemi.


Oh, I also want a flipper glass that can be foot operated.

Since the Grand Cherokee will be 'all new' for MY17, I can see that happening.

I could still live with a MY18 introduction because I'll probably skip the initial MY17.

It works flawlessly, and does save you fuel when you are at a stop. As soon as your foot lifts off the brake pedal, the engine starts up again, and you can drive off. There is no lag. Same thing if you lift your foot off the clutch. As for the A/C, I needn't worry as it still worked just fine unless of course you have to wait for a mile long freight train to go by...
So unless you brake with your left foot, the system will be faster than your reaction time (moving your right foot off the brake pedal to the accelerator).
As does Prius, I would expect these start/stop engines to move towards Electric A/C, Electric Assisted Steering etc. My wifes 2011 VW CC (Gas) has Electric Steering (which has been flawless). That way battery can keep A/C going for a good long while at stops. Why add the friction of an A/C pump full time (even when clutch is off) when it's only typically used part time. Keep the engine for only moving the vehicle forward. This would allow Stop/Start to be less imposing on creature comfort.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

Extremely curious about CarPlay & Android Auto support. Feels like must have features and honestly waiting for it before pulling the trigger.

Ooops, I mixed that one up.

My current lease would normally put me in the all-new MY18.

I'll probably trade in my MY15 after two years for a Volvo XC90 and trade my upcoming 2016 Lincoln MKX for a MY19 Grand Cherokee (Hahaha..talking about trading in a vehicle you don't even have yet is a true sign of being an enthusiast).

Since MY15 and the updated MY16&17 Grand Cherokees shouldn't be that different, I'd rather try something new to fill the gap.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

So, when are we actually going to see one of these? They are going to need to start releasing pictures and information in the next few months, right?
