The brakes on the wk are fine...its the suspension that gets unsettled by high speed braking.

I was thinking the same thing. I was hoping for extremely good brakes. Maybe they are bigger then the current WK, I hate seeing car reviews of the current GC saying the braking is poor. I hope they improved the stopping distance.

We all have... but this really adds comfort IMHO... especially in Europe where the WK is considered a big vehicle and parking spots are tighter.

I see your point about comfort/style.

You should try parking in Manhattan though..

Re: Anything they left out?

This might sound a little queer as far as a Jeep goes, but with all the other luxury items I figured I'd add this:

Integrated child booster seats like on the Volvos. A buddy of mine has a Volvo with this feature and I gotta say, for us with kids, what a great selling point.

I knew I'd get a response like that

but, the volvos do not have sliding doors, and many parents would never buy a minivan, myself included.
