I do believe this is a 2017 SRT8; as it was on the top level, I could not see the window sticker.

That's a 2016 SRT Night Edition in redline red.

Does this mean you can turn on Sport steering in Uconnect and the steering stays in that mode even when the Sport mode button is not engaged?

So the SRT keeps the grin for 2017?

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I wish I was able to feel the difference on the 2016 adjustable steering more. I test drove a 2016 HA for a good 25 miles and didn't notice it compared to my 2015 HA. I even selected sport mode. So that leads to me this question. MDbones mentioned his 2014 steering being pretty bad. Since I am not noticing terrible steering on my 2015 HA, is there a difference between steering between a 2014 V6 and a 2015 V6? Maybe I need more time behind the wheel of a 2016 to be able to make a better conclusion, but based on 25 miles of driving, I couldn't tell a difference between 2016 HA steering in sport mode, and a 2015 HA.
Does anyone else have any input? How could his 2014 have been that bad? Also, FWIW, I had a 2014 Summit V8 and I didn't like the steering. IMO was wayyy too heavy and made the entire Jeep feel like you were driving a tank. However, the 2014 V6 should have had the electric steering no?

Front end looks aggressive for sure, but very busy - may take a bit to grow on me.

Anyone seen one of these in black or white? Think those colors would look best with that new black painted front.
