I got my fingers crossed for it, but I am thinking that if so, it would be for the 2 lower tier models - Laredo & Limited - as these are the ones that have the 75th front end changes ! ?

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Approximately when will the 2017's start shipping to dealers? Feature worth holding out for in my case is Apple air play and Google version. Seems like the 2016's were way behind on arriving. Thinking I can wait another few months.

Mid-summer.

The MY16 was a late introduction to provide Jeep with time to work out the new version of the V6 and some other things. MY17 gets back on the "normal" schedule.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Why is the press materials launch later then when the order banks open and production starts?

Jeeps, from what I have read, are all ordered (by dealers/customers) before being built. So, order banks need to open first. My guess is that they want to be in a position to have cars to sell, before promoting them.

For the MY16 model year production got delayed a little beyond what Jeep wanted, but way beyond what the buying public is used to.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Any chance the 2015 Uconnect systems on the 2016 models get upgraded to Carplay?

So far there's just speculation...that there are hardware changes to support it. So...

I highly doubt it. Along with the CarPlay integration, I'm sure the new systems will also have higher resolution screens. The current system seems way too pixelated to look good for Apple CarPlay.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Hopefully, the new Uconnect will also get a better 'interaction' between the screens. An example would be that we finally get the option to see station- and song-info on the speedometer, too.

That's already available on the 2016s. There is a video review on the 2016 thread that shows the updated media screen in the cluster.

Excellent! Thanks for letting me know. That's one of the FEW issues I had with the display. I always felt that it was a bit of a waste NOT to display that info.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

it seems to me that Jeep is a little behind in getting both Apple car play/android auto and the 360 degrees camera display in the GC... both of these are already available in the 2016 Mercedes GLE 350 V6diesel (Canadian model numbers)
