Milous said awhile back that some models will offer both the new & old uconnect, so they should be able to be swapped out.

Got impatient and ordered my 17, since I have seen prices go up mid-year. Even dealer was saying prices can go up before the actual production launch, so getting locked in for a $200 refundable deposit and having my name on the window sticker was a no-brainer for me.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Dang so I gotta nurse another 6-9 months out of this old Yukon. That means I'm definitely gonna see 200k on the odo.

Knowing my luck, this means that Koons will terminate the group buy sometime between September and the end of the year -- so get your orders in early, guys.

Maybe the good news is by then they'll have gotten rid of the overstock on the bronze 75th Ann 18" wheels and something more appealing will be included with the Limited ORII package.

I can't believe they would put bronze wheels on a Limited.

The bronze wheels are part of the Laredo and Limited 75th Anniversary editions, which also feature bronze trim, so it makes sense (if you like bronze). But, strangely, they're also shown as included in the ORII package for the regular Limited for 2017.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Will the 2017 GC Trailhawk be released in Canada at the same time as the U.S.? It's not listed on the wk2jeeps.com 2017 Canadian price list.

Yes, should be close to around the same time. Canada info is just starting to come out. Base MSPR is $56,995 + $1,795 destination.

I am not quite sure if that is the context in which he said it. (Trust me, it sucks how slow FCA is being on this whole thing). However, he has said it isn't coming on initial release and is still waiting to see if it is a late add. When he was asked if it was the same size, he said that he believes it is since some models (not WK2) are getting both the old and new on the same production year. However, unless some version of the WK2 '17 gets the new radio at some time, I suspect it won't be able to be swapped into a '17 WK2 since they are unlikely to validate it fully works and tested it to the specifics of the '17.

I didn't say it looks terrible. I meant I don't think they would put bronze wheels on a non 75 Ann Limited since they usually put silver or polished wheels on those.
