Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I'm very happy with my 2017 GC Trailhawk. It is a real upgrade from my 2012 Limited which had limited options.

I also joined the 2017 club today by ordering a Red Velvet Summit with the Siena Brown interior. Now the 4 to 6 week wait begins. I was very satisfied with my 2014 Overland. Al

It took 1 week for me to get a VIN. Saturday will be 3 weeks with out being scheduled for production.

I'm almost 4 weeks in with out a build date right now. Are they running behind?

Are you guys ordering something special or do your dealers just not have any in stock?

Our local has 65 2017 Grand Cherokees, 4 of them are summits 5 trail hawks 1 srt.

17 Overland in Clear coat white/brown interior. Loaded.

Zero in a 500mile search from my location in California.

Some are close but don't have the HK sound option.

Most seem to have the black interior or tri coat paint on the lots.

I live in a small town in NE WI. Dealers within 50 miles of me don't usually stock any Overlands or Summits. When I lived in the Chicago area, you could find almost any model in any color in dealer stock within 10 miles of where I lived. Just the price you pay for retiring in a small town in WI. Al

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Is the Trail Rated badge and Off Road Package ever available on the Summit other than skid plates?

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Wow, I started looking at leases for a few minutes just to see what the going rates are. I've never leased before but figured they were much cheaper than I found.

A 2017 overland at about 47k comes to almost $500 a month for 36 months. I could just buy it on a loan for 6 years and the payment would be around $580 a month. Is there any benefit to going with a lease? $80 more a month to me is ano brainer to just buy it instead. If the lease was like $300 or something I may consider it lol.


Started looking at a couple other cars as well. Jaguar f-pace looks pretty nice with the right wheels/paint. The infinity q60 is also pretty nice.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

You'd be better off doing some research yourself on the pros and cons of leasing vs buying...it's more of a personal choice than a true economic choice. Way too many opinions out there...we really don't want to start a huge discussion on the 2017 features/changes thread on that topic.
