6 Months to '16 order banks.

With six months to go it's time to start asking questions.

"One" of the reasons I ditched my '14 Overland was the fact that I couldn't set the temperature and forget it, even after a number of updates. Every other car I've owned in the past 10 years (including my present Ford) I set the temperature at 68 and never touched it again. My GC always needed adjusting to get it right, either a few degrees up or a few degrees down.

As of now, are the newly built GC's passed that?

Bill,

I have a 14 Overland built in July of 2013. I have never had to readjust the temperature which I set at 70 when I got the car. But in some situations, especially in cold weather, it does seem to get a little warmer than 70, but after a few miles it settles down to a comfortable temperature.

Actually I now have 17,000 miles on it and have had only one minor problem with just the radio. It stopped playing the USB drive, but the dealer put in an radio TSB update, and it's worked ever since. Have not had any of the re-calls done either. Shop manager said if you have no problems, you might just as well wait and they will do the re-calls when I trade it on a 2017. So far I have been very happy with car. And the 20" Good-Year tires seem to be wearing much better than those 18" Michelin's I had on my 2011 that were terrible in snow.

Glad to hear from you again Bill. Couldn't believe you traded your Overland on a Ford. Are you looking a getting a 2015 or 16 Overland? Al

Re: 6 Months to '16 order banks.

Looking to get a '16 Summit as long as they don't announce any new technology that needs to be debugged.


The little Escape is pretty impressive for what it is and what it is equipped with.

Sounds like it won't be long before the Ford is up for sale. And with the redesign due in a couple years, I doubt Jeep is going to dump anything outstanding into this aging vehicle.

If you want to avoid trouble, then I'd avoid the first year of a refresh model year.

My 2014 was a little fiddly on temp, nothing bad.
2015 seems better.

Re: 6 Months to '16 order banks.

mswlogo, I'm thinking that the "refresh" for MY16 is going to be incredibly minor...a little visual differentiation in celebration of 75 years and the add of a few tech goodies that have been planned for sometime now. But I really don't think it's going to be anything like the MY14 "refresh"was, especially with a whole new platform coming for MY18 after a short MY16/MY17 run.

Bill, it will be nice for you to be back in a JGC less than a year from now.

I thought I read there will possible be new motors. Like Direct Injection on the V6. Which I, for one, would not want. Especially on the first year.

Possibly a new transmission too.


Nothing major

Re: 6 Months to '16 order banks.

Well, I agree on the engines as possibly being a consideration...if they actually appear.

Re: 6 Months to '16 order banks.

First, thanks for the replies.

As for the engine, mine will be a Hemi. So far I haven't seen any confirmed plans to change it. If they change the tranny to a Chrysler built, I will wait awhile to see what shakes out.

GCL - thanks for the offer.

I hope Jim is right about it just being minor. If I wait for no revisions I'll be waiting forever. Even after the '14 updates, there were a couple of changes for the '15.
