HD 220A alternators are no longer available in a hemi equipped Overland with HD brakes, HD cooling, and trailer tow?? Why would Jeep do that?

Others (who might be better informed than you) have posted in this thread & seem to believe the HK audio system will be available as an option for the 2016 model year, what makes you so sure it won't?

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

Any new colors? New wheels for any/all trims? Full LED brake/tail lights? New shifter?

How many more years can FCA allow Jeep to continue with only the V8 HEMI that was first released in 2005 as the sole high output engine choice? I am not saying that the HEMI shouldn't be an option, but the Grand Cherokee is most certainly losing market share to Ford and others who are looking for a turbo V6 that is powerful while still being relatively fuel efficient.

If they would offer the V6 turbo with a 100k mile warranty I might bite, but i feel like the V8 is just a better motor for the long haul, even if it's slightly down on power and efficiency. My wife and I test drove a Ford Expedition EL with the ecoboost and although it had good power I couldn't warm up to the exhaust note. I was really missing the V8 rumble. Also the fact that it only had a 60k mile power train warranty turned me off. Just my 2.

You're thinking of the wrong turbo boost...
