Hooray!

That we have seen here and other webisode-sites too ! BUT, the new model ? It is probably some ridiculously insane HP'd HELLCAT monster, or one of those Special Editions - 76th anniversary commemorating the success of the 75th ! You can tell I am not in favor of "bigger is better" (in the world of engines) !

HELP . . . On a completely different matter, MR. TOP MODERATOR, I have been having to ReEnter my password / log in Info. ice, sometimes twice every times I want to submit an entry ! ? ? ? ANY CLUES ?

No, I have it on good authority that the new model will be the Higher Altitude. That will be followed in 2018 by the Even Higher Altitude. Altitude models will be phased out completely with the introduction of the all-new 2019 GC -- but no worries because, later in that model year, there will be a special OR (Oxygen Required) edition.

Definitely not a browser issue.
This has been happening since at least mid-day yesterday.
I've used Edge, Firefox, Safari, and Chrome. I takes at least 3-5 times of entering in the correct username and password to login. Then you try to post something and you're immediately logged off again.

It's not a browser issue, it's due to the forum's new security updates.

I couldn't sign in Thursday and Friday. Support told me that when signing in you need to check the remember me? box to the right of the username field. You didn't need to do that before, you need to do it now.

It works... haven't had a problem since.

Ah Hmmm . . . I take Great Offense , or is it Defense . . . to that implication !

Everyone seems to of Focused on the WRONG "Help Wanted" question, and Thanks for the inputs (anyway) - You are correct, checking the "box" does work (as you can see!).

Now, 'BACK to the FUTURE' thoughts on the IFS, ANDS, or BUT(T)S on 2016 or 2017 IN regards to that NEW Refreshed 75th Face and IF, SHOULD, or COULD it be a Permanent Change in the Laredo / Limited Models - lets neglect that possible "new" '17 model implicated earlier by some "instigator"

With the educational inputs provided by Milous & Marlon (not Marlin) I am begrudgingly (?) now seriously debating '16 or '17 ! As stated I am for "less IS more" in my Vehicles ( not sex - now don't go run off on another tangent boys & girls ) . Meaning If I wait, the '17 would be a Basic Laredo + E, off road adv. 1, tow, & ?) - must be with 17" wheels for the better air-down capability. Do not care about 8.4" vs. 5" screen (though that 5" needs to Go-Away across the board IMHO ! Also, don't tell me to "just get a Wrangler then" . . . my off-roading is Part Time (to & fro the off the beaten path Rivers & Lakes of my fly fishing dreams). I'm getting older (ugh) and I want to camp in a less primitive way. To much info.? I agree.

SO, for me, the Seats Material and the "new" Face (grill, lights) are the MAIN focus here (now) . . . ! Is it ALL speculation or just my constipation that keeps me up at night wondering about the 2017 ?

Re: 75th G.C. Face or wait and see 2017 ?

ps; to answer the un-asked Q; yes I do often write with a dry grin sense of "jibber-jabber" (if I may quote a previous caller). Therapy, just think of it as (my) therapy and be happy (for me) that it is working . . . ha ha ! However the G.C. Questions / Thoughts ARE for real as I AM ready to "pull the trigger" . . . on a new Jeep silly, not . . . . that .

I believe that the 75th fronts will remain exclusive to those models, and will not carry over to the 2017s.

Scratch the word "possible", as I can 100% confirm that the "new" model will launch during the 2017 model year. The front will have some unique differences, but I would not expect anything dramatic. Will you be able to spot the difference from across the dealer lot or down the block? Absolutely.

And to further clarify, the "new" model is not a "package" or option based on the Laredo, Limited, Overland, Summit or SRT, but rather it's own model, and it may be run for a limited timeframe only. Stay tuned to your favorite channel(s) for further information.

I really want to get a new JGC now but the whole CarPlay is what's keeping me from pulling the trigger. If the MY16 were upgrade able to CarPlay I'd put a deposit down today... But I doubt they will be

Good god, I think oP over analyses things. Reminds me of a friend who overly complicates himself when ordering food at restaurants. Lol.

Hmm, I don't think that a make a break point. Realisticly you don't get all that much off of CarPlay. The curerent setup you already have capabilities to voice command your phone for calls and receive txt messages. Only thing it don't do for Apple is voice command reply but it does for android. With CarPlay, yes you'll be able to request ur phones NAV opposed to the uconnect nav.

Just saying doubt CarPlay will give you much more access and ain't a selling point me.
