FWIW, the latest update from Milous was IF new radio/CP,AA make it into MY17 it would likely not be until calendar '18.
Calender '17. MY17 won't exist in Calendar '18.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

So I just ordered a 2017 Altitude!!!! I got it in "Rhino". The Altitude, Trailhawk, and SRT are the only one's in this color. Kind of worried....I have never ordered a car site unseen.

We had the free first week after registering, it was 3g. And if you go to the uconnect page it only mentions 3g.

Different hardware is required and that's not going to become available until at least the spring...

Where did you find the option list for the Altitude? Is it based on the Larado?

Thanks.

this color is available on the Cherokee look on local lots and you can probably find a Rhino colored "Cherokee"

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Here is the Blue/Gray interior on the Summit... the quilting actually looks less pronounced in these pictures. It's actually very nice. Bill_de can't wait to see your Summit!

I can only speak for Android auto, but the current hardware will not not be able to support it. Android auto (and most likely Apple CarPlay) require a touch screen that supports multi-touch gestures, think pinch to zoom on a phone or tablet. This is not a feature that can be enabled by software , must have a new head unit that supports this.
