The HK has two 6x9's in the front doors and the 10 inch in the rear. I believe they have always been part of that system.

Does 'late availability' mean I won't get it if I pre-order a 2017 or that I can get it later with a software update?
Or, does this mean half the 2017's will have the 8.4, and the other half will come with a completely different stereo and possibly dash? If it's a software update, will any other year get it?

It's the same form factor. The dash would not change. From what was said at CES -- the hardware is upgraded for better performance -- so not just a software update.

Highly doubtful any past year will be upgrade-able, especially with Jeep's track record of back-porting features (or lack thereof). In fact I am getting nervous that eve the 17's will have it, especially with Milous so silent on the topic.

Worth a shot. I'm happy with the current 8.4AN since I just stream Google Music through the bluetooth anyway, but would be nice if it was an upgrade-able feature. The only thing that gave me pause about Android Auto was maps...is the Navi built in, or does it run through google maps using data on the car or via your phone? I've been in a few places where I had a crap signal and lost my navigation on the phone. I prefer it built into the head unit.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

What would be considered late availability then, spring 2017?

If it is true that ELSD is standard on the 2017 Summit, then I won't have to decide between a 2017 Overland or Summit. I had ELSD on my 98 GC Limited and it was great in snow. Al
