2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

All,

Sorry if this has been shared already (I did check) but I'm looking for a few comparison pictures. My understanding is the upcoming 2017 GC Overland will have a "refreshed" front end.

Are there any side my side pictures I could see the 2016 GC Overland front end and 2017 GC Overland front end so I can see if there is enough difference to wait or not.

Would certainly like Android & Apple integration but I can pass based on not wanting to wait for what may end up being late availability.

Thanks !

As far as I know, none exist yet. But look at the 75th anniversary editions or Trailhawk edition, as I suspect that the Laredo, Limited, and Overland will get a similar bumper.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Milous / Scott -

My current lease ends on 8/11/16 and I was going to hold off for the 2017 until we found out that the next generation radios won't be available at launch. So based on that, I've decided to go with the 75th Anniversary Limited JGC in Recon Green! I figure I'll factory order it about 8 weeks prior, which puts me around 6/11/16.

Based on your experience, if the order banks open on 6/9 for the 2017's, will I still be able to order a 2016 from the factory around the same time, or do the order banks close on the 2016's and I should order prior to 6/9?

Thanks for your insights!

Craig

^^^ Order banks close this month for the 2016 models. Depending on how fast orders have been filling up this month, it could be as soon as next week.

2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Any idea if the new '17 Diamond Black will have a sneak peek before order banks open? I'm ordering this color, so curious if it will have to be sight unseen.

If past history is any indication, they will probably arrive on dealer lots before official pics are released.

When order banks open in June, does that mean we will know what options will be available for each trim level? (If there are any changes from MY16)

Okay - wow! I'm glad I asked, would have been very disappointed if I missed it!
