That's what's now being discussed, planned, in order to build GC and Wagoner on same platform, both for 2019 model year. Hmm, maybe as a result something else could be pushed ahead?...

New Wrangler? If there is a "Trail-Something" GC planned this MY or MY16, I'll definitely know what I'm going for. Is either the Trailhawk or Trail Warrior coming?

If this new platform and/or architecture is that much different, then it sucks that we don't have space for two body shops because that's all we would need... assembly can run two different architectures all day, and so can paint.

Now the question is, what platform and/or architecture is it using?

Will it be a heavy update of the same, or something all new?

Hmm... ----------------------------

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

Personally, I don't believe that has anything to do with it.

Why spend the money to release a new vehicle when you do not necessarily HAVE to? The vehicle has to be "done" by now, I'd *think*, but when the current version is continuing to sell so well... why?

That's what I'm thinking. What they're doing makes a TON of sense. Just keep making small improvements to keep it going for as long as possible.

But personally, I just want a new Jeep to roll down the line.

That new Jeep will be the Grand Wagoneer then. I do agree that the current model of Grand Cherokee is selling on fire. Tweaking its appearance and internals as opposed to a fully new model look is probably the path right now until the fire starts to die down.

I hope this is true. It sure would help the resale value of the current model.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

I will be shopping for a Laredo in 2016. Currently for the 2015 model, the ParkView Backup Camera is not even optional. Curious if there is any information about backup camera options on the 2016. Eventually they will be standard equipment on all vehicles in the US, but not until 2018.
