Perhaps the base model will be in-between with options that allow it to add features with most if not all of the Overland features?

But then you wouldn't be able to get red seats...

Red seats? Hopefully those are optional.

Milious specifically said two features would be on the 2017s, but he didn't list in the post to which two features he was referring. I am too dense to figure out from the thread which features he was referencing. Im asking if he could clarify.

The 2013 Trailhawk was based on the Laredo, with a Trailhawk package option... the new 2017 Trailhawk will be an independent model, more upscale, positioned between the Limited and Overland features-wise.

Does it get a leather dash?

Talking Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I am sold on the Trailhawk with RED LEATHER SEATS! Milous do we know if the Trailhawk will be late availability or will it be available at 2017 launch.

Any possibility of the debut at the NYC autoshow next month?

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I was just thinking the other day why Jeep doesn't have a trailhawk model for an SUV with such a long off-road heritage, but it has one for the Cherokee and Renegade. Finally they put one together, then put red seats in it? Hope those are optional.


I swear, some of the stuff these designers/engineers come up with blows my mind.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Another user put Wrangler wheels on his GC. This is sort of how I imagine the 2017 Trailhawk will look but with the 75th front fascia and different badging/interior trim colors.

No release date, but I believe it will be in the earlier part of the model year vs 2nd half. Ruby Red seats, red accent stitching, red seatbelts. And for those "brushy" trails, power-folding mirrors will be available. When it gets dark or misty, HID's and LED fogs will guide you along...

*possible* debut at MOAB or NY, but cannot yet confirm.

I believe they will also offer black seats, will try and find that out.
