Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

There's a manual?

Maybe you opted for an automatic.

Lane Sense when turned on is white until you hit a specific speed (I think 37MPH) and then turns green. I does not work at slower speeds.
It then turns orange to indicate it is making a correction.

Bill,
What happens with "Lane Sense" when driving down a rural road that has no center strip or white line lane markings. Must it be turned off or does it still work OK. Lots of unstriped rural roads where I live. Al

It wouldn't need to be turned off, it just wouldn't do any good. According to the manual it works, somewhat, if there is only one line right or left.

I will probably only use it on long highway trips where boredom can be a problem.

I wonder if the danger in doing that is mentioned in one of the 427 warnings in the manual.

No worries. I forgot it had voice control.

"OK Jeep. How do I make the cruise control work?"

"RTFM."

It's to reduce driver fatigue. No need to "use it" or not "use it". It will "assist" where ever and when ever it can.

I'm wanting to see the same thing. I have a 15 HA and would consider getting a 17 to go with it

Going to hold out to see what the 2018 model year brings. I love the Trailhawk, but hate the 18" wheels. Maybe they'll add the 20" wheels as an option in 2018. I like the Summit, but hate the blingly wheels. Was really hoping for a High Altitude for 2017, but doesn't look like that's going to happen. News on the 2018's can't get here soon enough.

This thread started Feb 2016. You have long wait ahead. Almost 5 months.
And photos of wheels, final packages etc came a while after that.
