Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Not sure if it was addressed in this thread....what's the deal with 2017 fog lights? Are they the same as the LED fogs found in the 2015 and newer SRT's?

Looking at the window stickers on 2016's found on the local dealers lot I see the Summit stickers say "Premium foglight's" as a separate line item, the Overlands and Limiteds say LED tailights but no "Premium" fog line item.

Are these "Premium" Fogs the LED fogs from the SRT's?
Looking at the foglight lenses on all the 2016 trim levels they all appear to be identical, even though the foglight bezels on the Summit & High Altitudes are different than the bezels on the Overlands & Limiteds??

No, the 2016 Summit fogs are not LED. They are H11 bulbs behind a small projector lens. Not sure if the 2017 fogs are the same as the SRT, but they are indeed LED on the Summit (not sure if the lower trims will get LED).

No, the last time I looked at window stickers they ALL say "premium fog lights" whether it's a base Laredo or an SRT. The premium fog light does not mean LED. Whether the 2017 will get the LED fogs though I do not know.

Thanks.
My 2016 Summit does not have the 4th gen Uconnect, and only has 3G

Good question. On my 15 Summit, it is just the little round light. On the 17, there is a little round light AND a longer stripe behind glass or plastic. I'm curious how this will be illuminated. If it is, it's LED for sure.

Are they cornering lights like I have on my KL? They are inside the same housing as the foglights. When the wheel is turned, they come on, either left or right depending on which way the wheel is turned.

Definitely not cornering lights. They are simply fog lights and/or a DRL.

I was told that they were going to offer Radar Red seats as an option, but finalized ordering information is still being worked on so not able to confirm yet.

All of the non-Jeep 2017 vehicles that I have confirmed to have CarPlay feature the next-gen "UA_" series radios. A source at the Jeep plant says that the pre-production and fast-feedback vehicles built so far all have the current "RA_" series radios.

2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Not sure I have ever seen this vid posted here - skip to 1:25 - little sneak peek of the new Uconnect UA



So much for ordering a 17 when they come out - def worth waiting for this to prevent the headache of a hardware upgrade later.
