I'm sure for 2016 we'll see a complete revamp probably with the running lights separate from the nighttime headlights (just hope not slanted like on the Cherokee).

When I Think about a (possible) new headlight look I become giddy. I can't imagine how the future hids could look better than the current set up. A better Hemi is also great news.

I wouldn't be surprised if we would see all-LED headlights at the upper trims.

Hey Scott or Milous, have you got any more info on the pentastar upgrade? Or is that all still very hush hush?

I wouldn't mind that if they dash-mounted it, like they did in the RAM. It really saves zero space if they leave it on the center console.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

I don't mind the knobs, but that one looks a bit cheap.
A more refined version would look good

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

I like that knob idea but not in the center.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

I am hoping that they fire the entire electronics engineering team. And after that, they switch suppliers.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

I thought the knob was for the 9 speed and the funny T handle was the 8 speed? Or does the Ram have the knob and the 8 speed?

I personally think the knob is dumb. Not a huge fan of the 8 speed GC shifter either.
