A number of years back, someone from Chrysler contacted the senior Jeep engineers and told them that all of the trails in Australia are downhill, and therefore front recovery hooks would be of no use downunder.

2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Funny.

Need to get Mike Manley on a plane and get him down here - I'm sure a few of us Aussies would like to set him straight.

Oh - and a full size spare would be great too.....

Hmmm...seems like someone at Jeep is picking through the parts bin over at the Ram Rebel assembly line.

Black seats with red seat belts would be nice. The Jaguar F-Type offers this combo -- very nice looking.

They're also upside down, so I don't understand how you could get stuck if you aren't putting any weight down... er up... whatever

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

LaneSense departure warning plus on the 17's too ... Really glad I made the decision to wait for the 17's. That and Android Auto were my top two missing technology features. Auto parallel park would be neat, but I wouldn't use it as much.
