Order a 2017 GC Trailhawk from Koons yesterday. Had the VON within minutes. Now the wait begins!

It might be just you. I personally hated the little black filler piece under the HID headlights so much that it ruled out a GC untile the 75th anniversaries came out. The new bumper seems like it was designed vs hacked

Agree. I also like losing the "smile."

Really? Ah I don't hate it that bad. I think it's the new grill I don't care for, makes it look like a cheaper model. Do you guys think the headlights are the same for that bumper or some type of different bracket under the headlight that the bumper attaches to?

And we can't even get it on new ones. Grrr.
I recently saw an advertisement for a Mitsubishi that had Android and Carplay available....car started at 12,995 USD.

I'm convinced that Jeep is holding off until the new body style is released.

I'll tell you what's going to happen — I'm finally going to break down and order my vehicle without it, and it will become available the day after mine ships.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I am super bummed! Was planning to order a new Trailhawk but now everything is on hold BECAUSE I got a recall notice that my passenger side airbag on my trade-in vehicle needs to be replaced. Unfortunately, no parts available and they don't know when any will be available. So, I'm stuck with what I have until that can be fixed. Not a happy camper right now!

That would be a purely subjective reaction...I'm sure that some folks will love the refreshed fascia and others will loath it. In a few months, most folks will not even notice the difference.

I just hope we will be able to get an Android Auto or CarPlay update or something on the '16's whenever they decide to roll it out.

People trade in vehicles with open/not performed recalls all day long. I don't think you'll have any issues trading it in without the recall done.

Never heard of this being a problem, is the dealer telling you this? People trade their vehicle in all the time not knowing they have a recall. Sounds like the dealer wants to quickly flip your vehicle and might not be able to till the recalls are cleared?

I would hope so as well, but I think it is on the far outside. With the lack of information on this feature, I am starting to think there might not be any on the 17's either at any point, let alone MY16. Jeep is way behind the pack on this one. If they had this feature I would already have a summit v8 on order - instead, I am gearing up for some car shopping!
