Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Watched the video. You can keep the quilted trim on the doors and seats. Reminds me of something my grandmother would like, and I'm 67, so you can see how dated that is.

Maybe this is what the GC needs, the gold chrome package, all lettering and extra trim pieces.

Why didn't they do the wheels? Would've that been just too much?

No, something like this...................

Oddly, back in 1993 when the GC was introduced, the top trim level was the Limited with gold trim and badges ... I hated gold trim then (like now too) so had to go with a Laredo instead for the sportier look although I really wanted a Limited because of the leather seats, etc. but couldn't get past that ugly gold!

Our 1st Jeep was a new 1998 white Jeep Limited with the gold accent package that included gold shading on the wheels, gold lettering, and gold trim. If I remember, the gold trim was an option on some of the Limited colors. I kind of liked the look of the gold trim. I really did like the way the 98 handled in snow as it had the V8 with Quadra drive, limited slip axles, and real all-terrain Good-Year tires. Hoping Jeep brings back the Quadra Drive II with ELSD on the V6 2017 Overland I plan to order. Al
