They are incorporated into the front bumper fascia.

Those new Summit wheels will be tough to clean. Also too busy looking.

They probably got a great deal on those new Summit wheels from Pep Boys. Boy what a downgrade.

I'm not too concerned about that. Especially on the satin, you can hardly see any dirt/brake dust.

In my 16 months of ownership, I cleaned my wheels once or twice - and they didn't look dirty at all.

I'm quite happy with the new wheel design. Finally something different..

Funny, after making this vehicle for 6 years now, they still can't get the shifter console panel to line up (to the right of the forward cupholder) so it's even. Time for them to put a cheap piece of chrome over it like they did on the door where the USB, SD Card and Aux input is located. Chrysler quality control at it's best.

I kind of agree with you on that I like the improvements they have made to the front end on the 2017 GC, makes it look cleaner but I'm not a big fan of those wheels. of course when I first saw the current summit wheels I hated them and thought they were trashy looking so they may grow on me. I will not be looking until at least the second year or more of the new platform after they shake the bugs out of it so who knows what they will be by that point.

Hopefully the wheels will look better in person. Though they will still be a pita to clean.

Milous,


Will HID's be an option on the Trailhawk or only Halogens?

The Ford Explorer Limited also has quilted leather seats for 2016.

It's the Platinum. But IMO it didn't do that cheap looking interior any justice on the Explorer.
