Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Milous does update post #1 in this thread when he has significant, new information. He also maintains WK2Jeeps, which can be reach via a link at the bottom of (I believe) every page of Jeep Garage.

And just so nobody has to ask when he last updated post one, he includes the date.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

No new info on CarPlay. As best I can tell, it will not be available at launch. I am still trying to narrow down a date, but we're most likely looking at fall at the earliest.

In the non-Jeep vehicles that I have confirmed (Challenger/Charger/300), CarPlay is not set to launch until mid-October (2017 launch date for those vehicles).

How about the Diesel engine info that's supposed to be released?

Does that mean CarPlay will be available as an update for the 2017 JGC just like sirieyesfree was an update two weeks ago?

Ah, so if we'd want CarPlay in the 2017 model we would have to pay for a whole new radio?

I wonder how much that would cost

Kind of wacked but oh well. It will be funny if you find another 17 model owne that has, let's say a summit and they don't have CarPlay, but your Laredo or limited does form MY 2017. I would be pissed.

Anyway..unless my Durango dies prior I plan on buying when I come back from my cruise the 2nd week of December, a vacation week from vacation... Hopefully it's out by then

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

When do photos of the other 2017 trim models get revealed? Curious to see how the overland look/what features or changes it gets.

Before everyone chimes in, Yes im aware it will probably have a similar front fascia to what the other 2017's look like, I still want to see it.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

We are now less then a month away from order banks opening according to Milous. Any idea on pricing for Trailhawk and when the jeep sites build and price will go live?

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

striper', I would guess that Milous will have pricing information posted sometime around the order bank opening based on previous model years, but don't count on the Jeep.com online build and price to be up for MY17 for a much longer period of time...again, based on history.
