Looking ahead at the first 1/2 of the model year, I haven't seen anything regarding HA. But special models can be planned and released at the last minute, so can't rule it out 100%.

I don't think you will be too disappointed.

Really not in love with the new grille. The '14-'16 was simpler, more elegant.

I was surprised they all have the black surround, I think with the higher trim levels having it color matched would be nice. But on my wife's red velvet I think the black goes well with it.

Correct. No HA for MY17 unless Jeep suddenly changes their mind about it.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Odd that Jeep is taking orders for the Altitude, but you can't configure one online. No pics or any mention of it on their site or brochure. I really wish the package was available with the off-road II option, black 18" wheels with A/T tires. Would be a great seller, I believe. Might take away some Trailhawk sales though.

If this is true, I probably will order another Overland rather than a Summit. Thanks. Al
I went to my local dealer today, and even though "Build & Price" lets you add Quadra-Drive II as a stand-alone option, the dealers order system does not let them order Quadra-Drive on the 2017 Overland V6. Says it must be a V8. This verifies no stand-alone QD on a V6 without the ORA-II package. Apparently this is an error in "Build & Price". So it looks like I will be ordering a red Summit with the Siena Brown interior. Al

Just looked, Jeep order system has indeed blocked stand-alone QD on the V6 Overland...

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Seems to me we've been down this road before with QD and V6 engines.

I originally thought that was the case. But when "Build & Price" allowed it, thought maybe something had changed. Had to check it out. So another reason to get a Summit this time. Al
