Yea . . . I think maybe so too . . . perhaps a bit more black added to the mix ? ?

Weird, I don't care for the anvil but I do like the Rhino a lot ! I so far have a choice (?) Rhino or Brownstone (even tho it is a pearl color, wish it weren't!).

Looking at the Summit with the California package makes it look much better. Only thing I would change would be the grille inserts to black. And maybe different wheels. Wish they offered the Summit in silver. But I can hope the High Altitude will make an appearance again for 2017.



Trailhawk looks pretty good too.

Agree - Cali/Platinum package make all the difference. Not a fan of all of the chrome and black bottom

Been there ! IMO it's "simple"(?) economics for FCA or any business model really. Psychological Gamesmanship, to get you convinced that what you want is what they are giving you . . . !? So, as suggested, since many Jeep faithful can't seem to convince FCA to make what we each want individually - & we really do know better that they can't do that - perhaps After market or OEM purchases can & will (and should) do well !
Sounds rational ? Probably all just more b.s. on my part . . .

Interesting how easy to see the headlight washer cover outline on the Summit but it is NOT there on the Trailhawk.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Can anyone explain to me how the new Trailhawk is "more off road capable" than the generic Hemi Limited with the ORII and ELSD?

It has the rails, and it has, what was it? Another 1/10 inch of lift via QL?

Is that it?

I also read that the TH was available with the V6, but it was my understanding that the ELSD (at least back on my '14) didn't "fit" the V6, but only the V8. Is that different now? or is this a different differential?

Does the TH have extra skid plates that ORII doesn't have?

Just seems the biggest difference is the rails. I don't even think the tires are any bigger (since they need to run when the vehicle isn't lifted via QL).
