2017 Spy Shots???

Apparently these are spy shots for the 2017 refresh. I can't see much of a difference from the current model from these pictures...

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee spied looking refreshed

Re: 2017 Spy Shots???

Agree. I don't see a difference exterior, but that may be a test mule for the updated Pentastar v6 and the updates are under the hood of that mule.

Re: 2017 Spy Shots???

^^^ Dont worry, those test mules are usually a haj paj of parts. For example, in the first couple pics that particular Jeep looks like it has Durango wheels on it, then the different test mule has even different wheels from that. One appears to have SRT tail lights, single exhaust....which who knows they might go back to that like the 11-13 Overland had. Saves weight when dual exhaust was probably completely unnecessary. Either way though I don't see how the article claims its refreshed when there is not a single new thing to see on the exterior. Probably engine stuff as already mentioned.

Agreed- Don't see a difference on the exterior. But it keeps us all guessing huh!

Re: 2017 Spy Shots???

The article itself seems to be talking about MY16 stuff...I'm thinking this is a "red herring"

Re: 2017 Spy Shots???

For as much bitching about chrome window trim that goes on out here I'm surprised no one has pointed out the lack of it in these spy shots.

I must say when I first saw those spy shots I thought it looked perfect. No chrome anywhere, monotone love it.

get a nice arb bumper and some decent tires and call it a day

No refresh in the sense of a new generation redesign but there'll be some minor interior/exterior changes. If these shots are of the MY17 you can see the slight changes to the front end. The rest of the vehicle, not so much.

There isn't supposed to be any real changes on the MY16 either.

Re: 2017 Spy Shots???

I'm guessing the blacked out trim is just to keep people from noticing it on the road. Unless it's a new Altitude type model with the HID headlights.

In the last picture, you can see the outline of the bumper lines, which are identical to the non-camo Jeep behind it. I'll have to agree with Scott that the bra is hiding something other than body changes.
