Could be. It's only a plus for us if it truly will be available now.

Window stickers for V6 Summits do not show QD.
Window stickers for V6 Trailhawks do.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

How about a Limited or Overland with Off Road II package?

Bill is right. Personally I feel cheated. Living in Chicago with sometimes lots of snow, I was looking forward to the ELSD.

Took me a little while to find any 17's with the OR2 package, but Safford in Fredericksburg VA has 15(!) of them, 11 Limiteds and 4 Overlands, every one of them a 3.6L.

They don't have photos of the window stickers, but they do list them out in detail.

  • Tires: P265/60R18 BSW AS All Terrain
  • Electronic Limited Slip Differential Rear Axle
  • Front Suspension Skid Plate
  • Fuel Tank Skid Plate Shield
  • Normal Duty Suspension - Increased Travel
  • Quadra-Drive II 4WD System
  • Quadra-Lift Air Suspension
  • Selec-Speed Control
  • Skid Plate Group
  • Tow Hooks
  • Trailer Tow Group IV
  • Trail Rated Badge
  • Transfer Case Skid Plate Shield
  • Underbody Skid Plate
And here from one of the Overlands:

Off-Road Adventure II
  • Wheels: 18" x 8.0" Satin Silver Aluminum
  • Tires: P265/60R18 BSW AS All Terrain
  • Front Suspension Skid Plate
  • Fuel Tank Skid Plate Shield
  • Normal Duty Suspension - Increased Travel

That's what you get for going with an engine that gets good mileage in a luxury car. Luxury also needs (Quoting Tim the Tool Man) MORE POWER!

Seriously, in deep snow, the QuadraLift is probably more important.

the most accurate answer on a particular VIN besides the window sticker is to check the Equipment Listing here, by VIN:

Thanks Al.

I planned on getting a '16, but they took so long to start painting the Ivory Tri-coat I waited 'til now. I ordered on the 5th, but still in "D" status. But, I'm not as anxious as I was last time. There seems to be very little excitement now compared to all the fun last time.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Stopped by the local dealership today to look at some challengers again and they finally had some 2017 GC's as well. They had a bunch of overlands with some 20" dark gray wheels I have not seen anywhere yet online within 500 miles (as far as I remember). I'll have to look again tomorrow to compare to what I have seen online but these wheels looked really nice I must say. Kind of like the previous years Summits but dark grey with some sparkle to em, not the same design though.

One of the Overlands with these wheels had the Luxury Brown Color, I must say it's pretty killer. From a distance In bright sun it looked like very deep brown color, a little darker than say a hard root beer candy if anyone remembers those, close enough to black. Once I got I close enough I had to do a couple double takes to actually really see the brown, it looks almost black close up. It could be an option for me over billet silver when the time comes and if I still get a GC. Still to much chrome on the grill insert though, I expect that on a summit and not an overland. Those dark grey wheels surprised me though and may be close enough to that blacked out look of a HA if they are not offered with 2017.
