Re: Adaptive Cruise Control Stop-go

I'm still curious as to whether this was a hardware change or just a software change.

I would have been shocked if they could do it. They probably know that it would just open up another can of electrical gremlins that this vehicle could certainly do without.

Re: Adaptive Cruise Control Stop-go

My dealer never mentioned the "late availability" of any options on the JGC (why would he since he wanted to make a sale). So how the heck would I know? I also didn't see anything on the US web site that I looked at 15.7 million times before ordering.

Add all the features you want, but make them available to existing customers of that same year. If you can't do that (has to be done when building the vehicle) then don't offer the new feature until the next year model.

I would respectfully disagree. The 2014 spec sheets released at least 1 month prior to the release states "late availability" on several options. I've found the website does as well. Sorry you missed it...

No problem. Can anyone point me to a copy of that? I certainly didn't see anything about upgraded ACC options in the future.

In all fairness "late availability" wasn't pointed out for the ACC w/stop feature in the US. It was however in europe..

Re: Adaptive Cruise Control Stop-go

Does it really matter, i mean is this feature the be all end all?, i don't have it, nor do i have remote start and other features i thought it would have, but i still enjoy my SRT, it always gives me a massive smile every time i drive it and turns heads everywhere i go and has more features then i could wish for.

Sure, its not the be-all end-all, but I'm also sure that's not the point. Everyone has different priorities. You chose a fast fun truck, whereas others would like ACC with stop, etc. So I think the point is that it would have been nice to know for those that were interested in this feature on their $50K vehicles.

Point taken, i do wish i did have stop/go though, i did spend 90k afterall, but i don't. Perhaps i should have held off on my purchase a few months, but then again the feature for me was not all that important, i still have plentiful features and enjoy driving my truck as i hope all of you are.
