Why? Because your neighbor says so?
Trust me, I have owned just about every luxury marque out there...Get what you want, not what the media or some jerk-off at the country club says is better.
I am coming back to Jeep for that reason.

Sixty is the new forty.

I did look at the equivalent MB. It looks reasonably priced until you see that you have to pay extra for things that many vehicles consider standard.

It's a choice we all have to make, Hyundai, Rolls, or some point in between.

The day is young.

In the meantime you can get the same info at WK2jeeps. You just have to do your own arithmetic.

Yeah I'm totally going with the Silver. Black looks nice but only when it is clean.

Will this prompt incentives?

"Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) reported sales for the month of August that fell short of Wall Street expectations." Stock falls.

Incentives for September would be nice. Of course Jeep might have still held up their end and the incentives will be on the Fiat 500.

Funny you say this. I have a Black GC and the wife has a white van. For the most part, the van looks "cleaner" from a distance however, I spent an entire weekend detailing the two of them and I found the Jeep to be a lot easier for my OCD of clean cars.

Went I got up close to the white, I found I could see EVERYTHING. Every little stupid piece of dirt. Drove me crazy. The mini bus is already big enough haha.

I enjoy the black. It does suck in the winter though with white salt. Through the summer, I don't feel like it ever looks "dirtier" than the Van.

Nothing wrong with silver though! Hope you enjoy!

Speaking of the darker color, has anyone seen a side by side of the luxury brown and the walnut brown...i wonder how different the two colors are.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Are the upgraded wheels on the Trailhawk a late availability item? None of the THs on cars.com have the upgraded wheels.
