That is pretty neat! Makes me wonder though why the lights are so wide considering the small size of the lights itself - unless there is something in there in addition...

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I noticed a new grab handle in the rear (or has that always been on the Summit)?.

I like 2013.5 and 2014, but that's just me.

Nope, that's new. They moved that down from the headliner.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Milous (or anyone), do you know what exterior colours the Summit will be available in? Are any of them going to be late availability?

The current 2016 has the revised rear grab handle. So that's a new for 2016 thing, not 2017 specific. It relocates it to the pillar between the front and rear seats, and now the map light is located all by itself in the headliner.

That's where the little guys sleep who come out occasionally to clean the headlamps. They needed room for the tiny squeegees.


I thought that the interior they were showing was grey and black. But according to what Milous has on WK2Jeeps . com, the new color is Indigo/Ski Gray.


Guess it's time to calibrate my monitor again.

Where did you find interior colors? Only found exterior, which has peaked my interest on what this new black color will look like Diamond Black Crystal Pearl Coat

If you go back a few pages there is a link to pictures of the 17 Summit. It includes pictures of the interior, of just one vehicle.

Milous mentioned it as a new color. Wk2jeeps.com will probably have all the info next Wednesday afternoon or evening, after the official release at the NY car show.
