I know, I know...PICTURES. I haven't seen many JGC at all. You could easily recognize the increase of 2016's being shipped and then the faucet turned off. The offloading directly outside my window has mostly been other Jeep products. I've been waiting for the lot to fill up and promise I will post some pics then.

I was on a call at the time and dealing with "idjuts" trying to cram their vehicles into tiny gaps between other vehicles as about 8 toll booth lanes collapse into two highway lanes into the tunnel. It wasn't conducive to pulling my phone out of the cradle. But that lot at the B'more terminal is pretty impressive when it fills up with RH-drive and other export Jeeps. And the transport ship, when it's sitting there, is pretty huge as mophead can likely attest!

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Saw the '17 SRT (Silver) at the mall yesterday and I must say I think it looks better in person than in pics. I also think certain colors make it look very different. I still prefer the look of the '16 over this one though.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Q:

Good afternoon,

Do you know when the next generation radio unit / uconnect will be available for the jeep grand cherokee (2017)


A:

Steven,

The radio for the 2017 model will be the same radio as 2016 connect. As of now we do not have the Apple car play update but we do have a system that is similar and is in every 2016 model year. (SIRI EYES FREE)

Hope this helps!

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Spoke to Craig at Koons and he mentioned that we can now submit orders for the 17 Altitude model. Still no word on the jeep.com website about it. Is that normal? Been holding out to get a Altitude with Carplay.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Milous - Was the leather-faced steering wheel removed from the Laguna package on the Summit? What's posted on Jeep's site doesn't match what's on the models showing up in dealer inventories.
