Don't both the TH and the ORA-II Limiteds and Overlands come with P265/60R18 (TKH)
Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar reinforcement ...?

This is another thing. There have been more than a few complaints over the last few years about the hard thump produced by the QL air suspension when it tops out in its highest setting. If they indeed "fixed" this by shaving a half inch off the bumper stop for the TH, wouldn't it make sense to do the same for that suspension on ORA-II Limiteds and Overlands? (Not to mention being simpler from a production standpoint...)

And nobody had to tell the TH marketing team.

The tires are the same diameter (~30.6") as other trim levels...there are no settings in the vehicle computer to compensate for different tire diameters relative to the speedo and odo. Some folks do up-size, but that's not available from the factory.

maybe a shorter piece of rubber lets them claim a different hardware for marketing instead of just a paint job who knows lol

It is true that a lighter blue and a dark green will be offered on the 18's?

Don't know about blue. But I hope and think a dark green will. Compass has a nice looking green option; that's where my belief stems from...

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Hi Milous!

Any plans to start posting changes or additions to the 2018 wk2 other than CarPlay which you've confirmed thus far? Specifically any new interior or exterior colors, new wheels, etc. being offered on the various editions, especially Overland updates if available? Thank you!

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

There are a lot of posts here so sorry if this has been discussed, but does anyone know if they will offer an Altitude edition for 2018? Any idea if it will be available from the start?

When do you think you will have that?

And do you know if ESS is still coming to the CRD in 2018 (provided that EPA/CARB grant their approval for 2018).
