This lack of CarPlay thing may force me to buy another brand altogether, sounds stupid but it's something I really want since I will have the vehicle for probably 10 years. Hopefully my Durango can hold out until it comes available, any major repairs ($1500+) and I'm getting rid of it. Not sure what I would buy, there are really no other SUV's under 50k that look decent to me. I would probably just get a car then and possibly keep the Durango for the winters only.

Agree - drives me nuts that they screwed us on the new Uconnect off the bat. I debating going the F-pace route but can't get it down below $60k to get what I want, so may just go for it with the hopes of being able to upgrade later. Unless the CarPlay significantly changes something that a simple swap won't be possible...🤔

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

You are not going to see anything until the sales/marketing launch in the September-ish time frame. And they pretty much never announce incentives in advance for obvious reasons.

Milous - the new Uconnect should remain the same size as current model right?
I believe it is identical, as some 2017 vehicles will be offering both the current RA3/RA4 series radios as well as the new "U" series.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I need a fall back plan if the HA isn't available when I need to purchase.

If I had to choose I guess it would come down to the 2017 - 75th, Trailhawk, or possibley a summit if I could grab one under 48k out the door.

The the three main things I want on my GC are CarPlay, blacked out look (trim) and HK19 system.

The the Trailhawk will seemingly take care two of those minus the wheels, but missing the HK19 with no option to add it correct?


The 75th seems to be the best bargain out of everything but I can't stand the bronze tinted wheels. I wonder how far fetched it would be for the dealer to find a swap for the 20" black polished?

The Summit is great of course but a few thousands more than I want to pay. The glammed out look of the Summit with polished wheels looks good to me so price is the only deterrent there. If it came down to it unwound probably top out at 48k

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Shockwave, you may also want to consider Overland and doing the color modifications yourself. Presumably, the HK audio and the CarPlay (late add possibly) will be available on Overland so that leaves the cosmetics. Getting to $48 on the Summit "could be an interesting exercise"...although if anyone can do it, forum sponsor Koons would be the place to try.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Wheels are the easiest thing to change - dealer probably will not swap, but they'll be happy to upsell (hint - check the classifieds instead)

Limited and Overland have chrome door handles, which would be the most difficult part of a blackout vs the 75th/trailhawk/HA

Wait to see what the 2017 Altitude will have for options. It's available in October.

Can't wait to see the revised Overland front end. The black grille is really growing on me.

Thanks for the updates Milous!

Looks like the headlight washer doors are back under the headlights.
