Maybe the new Trailhawk, but I wouldn't expect any other 2017 GC models to be there.

LOL!!!!!!!!!

BTW: Regarding the 2018, that's when I'll be ready. Not ready for a 2017. I'm gonna do it right this time. Not young, dumb, and itching for a new car I don't really need anymore.

Jeep is definately better bargain. That's why I got one with life time warranty! But the engineers are not looking into the small details. I can start with the ugly filler plates under the head lights, missing LED tail lights and get to the shifter now. If they are after Corrola costumers (like one person I know that is very happy with her new Toyota because radio is now showing who is singing ?????) we can loose, or not get other fancy futures. Not to mention that the Jeep dealer I have used for years is scaring me now. My older 04 Overland was at least six times there in the last month. Changed 4 different steering pumps and one water pump because of leaks in the very next day.You guys have no idea how they sent me home twice. How I can trust them to work on my new Jeep? They are big liability- I am driving my kids in the truck.
Sorry guys, looks like I needed to vent....Please don't give me some s***t.
I looked into the F-Pace too...fully loaded, it's actually around $70k not $55k. It is a really sweet car, but that price was one of the reasons I stopped looking at it...that, and the fact that I decided I wanted real off-road capability.

Wow, you're growing up before our eyes.

Seems like a smart decision.

I debating going this route too, but to get anything comparable to a loaded hemi 4wd Overland it was around $60k. They tend to nickel & dime just like BMW for crap that should be standard on their top of the line models.

I actually have a F-Pace on order with a handover date of June. Unless Jeep shows me something soon, I'm going with the F-Pace. I got the S and I spec'd it out to 62k.

Nope. Sorry Phil. Not gonna do it.

Plus, the local dealership hasn't parked a thing out front that has caught my eye like "OoOoOOOOoh, I want it. Where's the next U-Turn?" in YEARS. No tent sale, nothing.

That helps.

Any hints as to why youre waiting for the 2018 over the 2017? Are there some new features that you can share with the rest of us?

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Nothing more. No, it won't be cheaper. I'll just have more money in my pocket for it.

Marlon, you like the new front end? New special edition? Or both?

I am going to the show, hope to see the Trailhawk or a 2017 there and would be happy to take some pictures for the forum.

Would the Trailhawk have the new Uconnect system?

Any chance the HK system will be offered as an option in the limited?
