Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

If I'm reading this correctly this refresh is more of a "service pack" than a refresh:
- little to none exterior changes
- possible but unlikely V6 PUG upgrade
- electric steering and transmission heater
- new shifter
- some new electronic gadgets like lane departure warning and start/stop system which are already available on other models.

I would imagine they will throw some 75th anniversary badges, decals and interior/exterior colors. Honestly if this is what it is there is not much meat to it.

The term "refresh" reminds me of working in the yard all day and being too lazy to shower, but instead splashing on some "Old Spice" and taking the family someplace fancy like Sizzler.

Unless there are at least some minor sheet metal or other exterior changes, how does this differ from the other minor changes that occur from year to year? On the other hand, if they incorporate Apple and Google Play into the head unit they can call it a refresh all they want. I am thinking of boycotting ANY car purchase until I get a head unit with that feature.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

I parked my blacked out 2012 Overland at the post office and when I came out a 2015 Black Altitude was parked right next to me. I now know or am pretty sure I'm content with my 2012 as the 2015 Altitude looked to narrow in front and Compass-like compared to the mean looking front end I've got.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

That's funny because your Jeep shares headlights (part numbers match) with the Compass.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

Well I wouldn't upgrade because of it, but I suck at parallel parking and this sounds pretty neat:

ParkSense Parallel/Perpendicular Park Assist Ultrasonic parking sensors on bumper guide driver into parking space. The system automatically controls steering-wheel angle, driver controls, gear position, brake, and accelerator. Parallel parking possible on either side of vehicle; for perpendicular parking, vehicle backs itself into space.


Not that I parallel park much, but still something I wish I had the rare occasions I have to. When it comes to the skill of parallel parking I may as well be a 16 year old learning to drive.
