Interesting take on it... I'd be interested to read it again when they have a production model.

The said it had 20's does the production model have 20's?

Anything with a touchy throttle is pointless offroad, I know exactly what they are talking about. That's a pretty worthless review, honestly.

The 2017 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk that I bought and have been driving for 4 days has 18" wheels.

I read that review weeks ago, but my Trailhawk throttle doesn't seem touchy in 4 Hi while in lower gears or in 4 Lo at all.

Yeah, I figured they'd fix it by the time production versions were released. But why put out a tiny review using a pre-production car with crappy tuning when by now, you can go to a dealer and test drive a real one?
