Dealer is re-evaluating. Millions of cars have been affected by this recall. Hopefully they will still work with me and take the trade. Issue is because it is a safety recall they have to make sure they have no liability. Recall states front passenger seat should NOT be occupied. They will have to make purchasers aware of this…

Not likely on a MY16 without you paying to swap out the system for the next generation one when it's eventually available. 'Could be major expensive... It's a different system that will support CarPlay for MY17 and it's delayed in availability.

Yep, I would agree on a blacker black. I've had several of the Brilliant Black and while it is great this new black may be better. Will have to see in person.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Have they ever made a limited edition model part of the standard lineup? Such as like the Overland, was that a limited run that eventually became a permanent fixture?

With the increasing popularity of mostly or totally blacked out vehicles from most manufactures over the last 5 years I wonder if they will make it a standard model soon? If i am correct the altitude model came out in 2012 or 2013 correct? Its seems to be in the books for October 2016 as well hopefully according to the OP. This would make the model 4 or 5 years going strong, why not just make it a standard trim?

That's a great idea, and make all options available including leather dash, etc. if one wants it, etc.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Can you order the Trailhawk without the decal on the hood. I like everything about it but that.

Not likely as you can't order the Cherokee or Renegade without the sticker. I've read that some people have had them removed after delivery or have done it themselves.

Sorta...the Summit became an independent trim level in 2014. Previously, it was a package on the Overland for MY11-13.

Trailhawk is a better example. For MY17, it's a separate trim level. When offered previously, it was just a special edition.
