I'd like to know that as well. I'm already having a hard time ordering an almost identical vehicle for MY17 and deleting features certainly doesn't make it any easier..

Considering they are adding features and the Overland never had adaptive headlights, you will probably get over this feeling as it gets closer to launch date. The nifty new shifter should be enough.

I'm not saying I'm getting anxious like I did with the '14 launch, but I went online this morning and got my Affiliates Rewards control #.

When I was working I used my own car. Since I retired they went back to company cars. The must be buying from FCA. which puts them on the list.

Any retirees whose company was not on the list, should double check before you buy.

Bill, you'll do better with the group buy than with the Affiliate 1% below invoice...

Anyway, it's still a bit too early to know exactly what I'll be doing. Once I'm replacing my current Jeep, it's also time to replace the Lincoln. I'm eyeballing the new Continental and its price will determine how much I'll have left for the SUV. I was planning on getting a fully loaded Black Label Conti and another Summit but if I determine that the Summit isn't 'new enough' for me, I could also go with the standard Conti with the standard engine and get a Volvo XC90 instead and go for the all new Grand Cherokee three years after that.

Decisions, decisions...

The Affiliate only guarantees that the max you pay is 1 under. At the same time it lowers the dealers price to 2 under. So 2 under is a starting point.

The processing fee of the group deal eats up 1%. And I do have to consider trade in also.

I'm not going to do a lot of shopping around, but I will offer the dealer who serviced my '14 a chance to come close. Koons is only about 2 1/2 hours for me, so I will probably wind up there. If I do I would still use the control # and let them save something. I am wondering if part of the high processing fee is used to get people signed up for Tread Lightly or something to get a control #.

My two biggest decisions I have to make;
1 - Will I like the Ivory Tri Coat ?
2 - Do I preorder, like last time, or wait to see if they run?

I still have to replace a camera ... and Nikon has delayed the release of the D500. I wonder if they are owned by FCA.

No idea why they were deleted, they are not on the 2017 features list.

I think I need the reveal of another new feature for MY17 pretty soon to cheer myself up!

Decisions, decisions...

I'm considering the XC90 as well. Sliver R Design. Waiting for finals specs on both 2017 models and going from there.

I really like the R Design. The only reason why the Inscription is currently my favorite is that there is no leather-dash and no rear sunshades available on the R. However, there are rumors on the Volvo-forum that those will be available for MY17 as well.

It will also boil down to lease numbers. When I checked the last time, the R Design had the better numbers.

In General, MY17 is a great year for auto enthusiasts. As I said...decisions, decisions...
