But reportedly not at launch so early builds will b "left behind" 😞

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

In Australia we always get slightly different specifications in our cars to other countries, but it is the same here as far as Kia and Hyundai are concerned. They come absolutely loaded with gear that costs thousands of dollars in other brands. Before I settled on my MY15 Overland I priced a new Jag XE and it was $$$$ for the tech pack and more $$$$ for the safety pack. Jeep did have the jump on other brands 5 years ago when the WK2 was first released, but compared to a Hyundai now they are a fair way behind.

Coupled with a 7 year warranty and low fixed price servicing, it is easy to understand why Hyundai i30 is now Australia's biggest selling car.

But I would still never get one....

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I for one would wait for CarPlay and android auto , along with auto start/stop being able to permanently set to on or off.

If you buy the Hemi, it has no auto start/stop

Of course I don't know the real reason they haven't committed that transgression against the V8, but the only reason I can think of is that it doesn't make financial sense to invest in that engine if they aren't going to continue with it past MY18. Maybe of the few times that FCA's cheapness works in consumers favor... at least the ones that purchase the V8s.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Thanks for the information!! I am new to the forums and currently do not own any jeep product. However I have been waiting for the order banks to open for the 2017s for some time now.

Does the open date of June 9th apply to the SRT 6.4L version as well? I understand the "hellcat" is a later thing but I'm not interested in that anyways. I was under the impression that the SRT's generally open a bit later than the other trims. Can anyone shed some light?

Thanks!!

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I assume 16 order banks are now closed if 17 is going to open in a few days. It will be interesting to see the pricing and full ordering options here soon.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Hopefully all this CarPlay flan will just nonsense and it will be available at launch...

Water pump started failing in my Durango this week, replaced. AC compressor getting extremely loud now... yearly inspection also due next month :-(

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

If I get a 2017 JGC at launch and then later decide that later I want CarPlay would I be able to take the new hardware, released later in 2017, and swap it out with the original infotainment system?

Even if doable, oh the cost....

Not guaranteed, and if possible would likely be cost prohibitive...
