Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

All 2017 wk2s will have that front end....even the SRT. And by that i mean the new....washerless headlights etc. They arent gonna give the 2017 trailhawk, summit and srt the 75th cues and not do it to the laredo, limited and overland.

Do you like the new headlights and grill and lower fascia on the Trailhawk? I do.

The unknown for me is if the HA will carry and how they will update that one. I'm almost betting it won't, but total guess

Thanks for confirming Scott. I didn't imagine there would be a different front end - pretty obvious that wouldn't make sense - lol

Any word on HA carryover?

2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I would love to see the Grand Cherokee in this colour(looks way better in real life, a little less blue and a bit more green lantern green)

It look fantastic in the sun, so vibrant and strong
All the current colours are boring, the only interesting one is the velvet red

Can't help it though, I'm just a getting' older by the week wondering what's going on, yonder-way ! I so desperately want to spend my $40G's, must I opt for the '16 75th Laredo ? Or can I have my cake & eat it too in a '17 Laredo that looks just like the 75th (front) ? pssst . . . I promise I won't tell a soul . . . just you and me will know . . . Ssshh.
Check your messages for my take on this matter.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

What a nightmare, I have been ready to purchase a GC for almost 2 years now but this CarPlay thing has been the main holdup, they have been dangling it like a carrot in front of us since then.

Not sure why this is such an issue to get out the door for them, It's just an overlay onto any existing systems OS.

If they could at least confirm that the systems could be updated to it later on that would even suffice. In order to have CarPlay and android suit they had to update displays correct? If the 2017's come with the new displays then there is always a chance I guess

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Apple CarPlay is a major option I would want when my current WK2 lease is up in Feb. what are people thoughts on the price point the Trailhawk will fall into between the Limited and Overland?
