Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

good luck with finding pics right now. There should be some mules out and about...but they probably look just like any other 2014

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

Thanks, Scott. I'm actually surprised they're going to do this refresh for the MY16 with the new platform not that far into the future, but some new choices will be nice for folks. I'm hoping they offer a light interior choice at the luxury end for those of us who hate dark interiors, for example. Summit is one of the few lux SUVs that you can't get a tan or similar interior. And hopefully that new paint system will let them get a little bolder on the outside.

Detroit auto show starts in 10 days, any chance we'll get a look then?

Probably not. In the recent past, Jeep typically has done it's vehicle reveals at the NY Auto Show in April. (The Renegade was an exception with a Geneva debut because it is produced in Europe and was released to the Euro market already).

It seems recently that the only reveals for Jeep in Detroit are for special editions, trims, etc.

I would assume the "refreshed headlights" would simply improve light output and perhaps address people's complaints about the black plastic knockout on the HID/LED lights.

If they are touching the tails, then I would guess they would go to a full LED setup, instead of the mixed LED/incandescent setup they have now.

I like the idea of more towing capacity but we shall see if any of this proves to be true.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

I agree with rubi'...likely later in the Spring for any MY16 reveal since production would start for MY16 in about June 2015.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

Schedule-wise I believe that MY2015 is supposed to be a "long" one with MY2016 starting production in Jan. 2016.

That would be weird as it would press this minor refresh even closer to the platform change...but stranger things have happened in the industry!

Maybe they are doing that on purpose to give it an end of life kicker so they have something to sell in case the platform change to the rumored sedan based unit has more teething problems than expected.

I'd like to see more info on that platform change, as just possibly it could lead me to buy my last GC, a '16 with the slightly hotter Hemi.
