Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Those that have taken delivery of their trailhawks, what is your review? Does the ride feel stiffer since it's an "off road" vehicle, road noise, etc etc

My brother lives almost walking distance to Koons, so all it's gonna cost me is gas both ways. (Well, that and having to listen to him rag me about politics over supper.)

Its not an update, it would have to be a whole new radio. Rumor is that starting mid 2017 the new radio will start rolling out to the GC. But it is jeep so dont hold your breath.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Why does it have to be a whole new radio? Hyundai recently announced a free software update that adds it to a bunch of their 2015 and 2016 models. What's the difference?

I'm guessing that Hyundai uses a better and more flexible radio design. That allows them to roll out major features and changes.

Likely current radio has insufficient processor speed and ram/flash memory since current radidio dates to calendar 2012 for factory installs and likely 2011 design specs for inclusion into MY14.

FWIW, the latest update from Milous was IF new radio/CP,AA make it into MY17 it would likely not be until calendar '17.
