All newer Grand Cherokee seats are relatively firm, but I personally have no complaints. It's very comfortable!
I say give it time. Any new car is going to feel unusual until you get used to it. Almost like a shoe. You know it's better than the old ones, but it still doesn't feel right....it will. The seats aren't smaller, the interior sizes didn't change...you'll get used to it.

And to the OP...I gotta ask, what the heck does selectable driving modes and cool tech stuff like that have anything to do with appealing to only people that can't afford the car? All high end cars have that kind of technology these days and it's very welcomed technology. Why would you not want to be able to select different driving modes that appeal more to you or make for a more enjoyable driving experience? I dunno, after reading your post again, sounds like you may have just made a 50k mistake.
Besides the Eco, Non-Eco and Sport on transmission. There is Sport, Comfort and Normal Power Steering modes. I don't know of anything else besides Aero mode on the QL.

Re: 2017 Summit seats

I got taken fishing this morning by a new college graduate in his new (to him) '15 Ecodiesel Summit 4x4, of which he is very proud. I thought the seats were great (and I caught more fish than he did).

Guess he won't be taking you fishing any more.

The day I got it I drove it for two and a half hours and my backside was literally made numb.



There are a couple of sport settings and the users manual talks about other thing you can set to make for a "dynamic driving experience". An SUV is not a sports car and it seems to me that they're trying to market the Grand Cherokee to a generation that mostly can't afford it. How many Millennials can afford a $50K vehicle?

A lot of us can.

Re: 2017 Summit seats

Most millennials cannot afford it, but many of their parents can.

You should see the cars kids drove at my high school (10 years ago), 40+k BMW's etc.

I however, used that as motivation, got an engineering degree, bought a house in 2013 (in the bay area ) and finally got a jeep i've always wanted - all in my 20's


No, i don't love my work, but it allows me to do things i do love - Diving, snowboarding, etc.

I'm 6'1 240 lbs and have never had any issues with my back or comfort from the JGC seats. However I do have a bad lower back (not because of the seats) on a long trip I have used the heated seat for some back relief.

Actually I see more Limited's and Overland's then Summits on the road which are under 50K still expensive though.....
