The headlight washer. It's only in the headlights of the Overland, Summit and SRT. It's in attached pic. Honeycomb pattern black plastic on headlights.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

Hey Milous,

What's the scoop on the Durango? Is 15' the last year or has that changed? We are considering purchasing one and I'm wondering how long I can drag my feet.

My apologies if this has been covered in this thread and yes I'm sorry to post in a GC thread, but you seem to be the only one who knows what they're talking about. Thanks.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

I doubt it.

Since this would also require some sort of re-design of the entire pressure washing-system, they could have offered an LED-option, too.

Now, since LED is off the plate for the refresh, it does make you wonder what's left for an exterior refresh (or upgrade) in the first place. I guess some cosmetic changes.

'Til 2018 (MY19), it is still quite a while and full LEDs aren't that exclusive any more - especially not on vehicles priced north of $50K - so I'm a bit surprised we won't see them on the refresh. same applies to the 360 degree camera system.

On the subject of washers can they do something about that...perhaps sacrifice some of the capacity and move it up a couple of inches.

And put the compressor elsewhere too.

Otherwise perfect vehicle, no need to do anything further.

2015 is not the last year of the durango. I suspect they will keep it around until the GC is redesigned and the wagoneer comes online

The Durango is alive and well. The 2016 models will launch at the same time as the Grand Cherokee, in late November. Like the Grand Cherokee, it will have a mild refresh which includes the new 3.6L with the Stop/Start system.

One drawback, FOR ALL 2016 Models, is that it looks like Chrysler is going to drop the 5yr/100k powertrain warranty down to 5yr/60k .

Oh, that.

I forgot that was even there... I thought we were done with the "Black Plastic Filler Piece" (What it used to be called) when we discovered that it was actually functional.

Yes it is functional for some trim levels, but it kind of cheapens the front end of the GC a little. I love my GC. That's the only thing I wish they would change.
