Carbon black wheels are showing as silver on the SRT....Glad that is wrong!!

On previous model years everything was uniform and clean looking.
I really like the new lettering. The wheels are "Ok".

I haven't seen bronze on any non-75th Anniversary Limiteds or Laredos in all of my searches. Maybe that was a typo?

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

If the 2017 Build and Price isn't directly accessible from the JGC page, it's not likely "done yet", so be aware there may be some behavior changes between now and when it officially goes live with an active link on the site. They surely don't have all the options in there yet on the Overland I just configured...I think...

That said...it's nice to be able to play with the "options"!

If it was a typo it was a very persistent one it showed up in several different places (and still does).

I'm with you.

I just pulled up three Limited with ORA 2 that Safford in Fredericksburg, VA has in stock. Two black and one brown. All three photos (actual) show silver wheels. When I plug the VINs into the Equipment List on the contact web site, there are no wheel options listed. Sure wish they would include the three character sales code for each description though.

The 75th ver a in the option description on the stickers, and in the build and price, must be a flat out mistake, not a typo. I'm sure hoping so because it will same me a bunch of money on wheel replacement/refinishing.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I don't know -- the wheels on the white one look like bronze to me, and that's what the sticker info says. Hmmm... same for the brown one. I don't see a third one. Dang.

Ugh! Looks like I fat-fingered the year in the search.
Dang for sure! I ordered a white one but the bronze wheels will have to go.

I just searched nationally for all 2017 Limiteds with OR Adventure Group II, and while I only wound up with 33 results, all non-75th Anniversary models have the standard 18" Limited wheels, with the all-terrain tires as they have in years past.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Seems there might be hope yet! I wonder if only the very first builds got the 75th wheels?

That brown looks sharp! The dark grey is Max Steel or Granite?
