Because the black grille is not entirely solid; there are openings between the slots.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The more I look at the front of the Ivory Summit, I think it might actually look better with a front plate. Although I will take delivery with no holes in the bumper, I may just wind up getting this renewed. Although not trail rated, Jim and others have said it is go on the beach.

I had NO idea that there were openings there. Which brings to light another question, Why are there openings there? Do the 7 large slots not provide enough airflow?

If anything this new information has only made me more confused.

Always hard to tell in pictures but the new black looks deeper black less metalic.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The Overland wheels freakin suck. They look exactly like the 18" Limited wheels. And I'm not a fan of aftermarket wheels on the Overland so...

I'll be the odd one out, I like that style of rim more than a simple "5"Spoke. I'm not crazy about them being two-tone, an all machine grey would have been nice :-) I still don't understand the "vented grille".. it explains why it's all black but what is the reasoning for it?

Milous was looking for clarification. On the Trailhawk is it true if you order the Trailhawk luxury package is the Jeep active safety group mandatory? Thanks in advance

Much to my disappointment, I heard if you ordered the Lux package you had to get the Safety group and Blind spot detection. I wish that wasn't true as I don't want that stuff.
