Silver car in the picture is a Chrysler 200. That is the Chrysler 200 intruder cluster in the picture.

As far as the tidbit I will guess that you will be able to turn stop/start off permanently without needing to push the button every time.

I took a 2016 BMW X6 for a test ride & it had this feature. What a joke! I hated it after the first stop light & felt it was just a gimmick! Talk about extra wear & tear on your starter & engine! No thanks!

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

With the belt reference...makes me think about the ACC which requires the seatbelt buckled to fully function (mind you as it should).

Honestly other than flipper glass being a huge area of anger, I am at a loss.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I would love if the Summit would get some fresh colors and a new choice of wheels. The design has been pretty much the same for years now- with no available options.

And if we don't get new colors, I'd like to have the same choice of colors as on the Overland...

I am just thrilled no start/stop on the V8 for the 17.
Maybe an 8HP75

2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I would also say some sort of autonomous driving but if that was to happen that probably would not be until the next generation GC.

Probably not until Google buys FCA.

Horrible and most useless feature on any car, regardless how smooth it is, it sucks. Thank god there's a permanent off switch on most cars.

The amount of time for the start/stop feature to engage in start on the V6 is now 7 seconds versus 10??? (just kidding, it isn't that slow... LOL).

Probably the sport mode gets put back on the shifter......or shifter controlled by moving the shifter a certain way.

I call ACC with automatic steering lane correction pretty close to autonomous driving, which as I understand it is on the 17's. While not "just take me there", it is certainly an order of magnitude in that direction.
