^^This. A lot of people seem to think it is going to look old, but FCA interiors are usually better than some of the competitors and I have a hard time believing it won't look good in person. I am a little disappointed it is in only one color choice though. That being said, I won't be getting it just to say I got it and it is a lower feature in my mind. I like the laguna leather and the additional leather inlays with the package, but the invoice on it is higher than I expected. *IF* I do get a WK2, it won't be a shoe-in option - I will have to be wow'ed for that size of mark up which I think is possible.

I seriously doubt there is any appearance differences in the other (already existing) interiors for MY17 Summit.

Jeep will issue press releases for the 2017 model year on September 1st. The advance copies of these press releases do not mention CarPlay at all, while the press releases for a few other non-Jeep models do list CarPlay.

The earliest that I can determine that CarPlay will launch in the vehicles I have confirmed (Charger/Challenger/200/300) is not until Q1 of 2017.

Sorry if i sounded like dink, wasn't trying to be. Just getting frustrated with the whole situation. Between them dangling CP in front of us and limited info on whether the HA model will actually occur it leaves me in a bad situation trying to decide on a 2016 or 2017...

- Say screw it and just buy a 2016 HA and hope i can put the 2017 CP radio in it afterwards.

- Wait to see if 2017 HA model will come out. By the looks of it we won't know until at least Oct/Nov/Dec.. By that time the 2016 HA I am looking for will be gone off the lots most likely.

- Buy a 2017 Summit, its the only model i will consider other than the HA at this point. I just love the exterior look of the HA/Summit. Prefer the blacked out look of HA though.

Don't get hung up on CP. Buy the 16 HA, you won't regret it.

Likely September-ish...if past pattern applies. That feature doesn't usually hit until the marketing/sales introduction happens.

Then it takes a little while for them to correct all the errors.

2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Pictures of the new SRT from autoblog. It looks pretty good IMO. A very distinctive front end compared to the rest of the lineup. I had some reservations when it came to the updated front but looking at it now, they are gone.

Looks good on an angle and looks bad from the front. I'm sure in person it will be fine.
