In my country there is no leasing and it costs 58k

Is the 2019 change in body design confirmed? will it be as drastic as the 2014
redesign ?

wwjd?

There are rebates plus 0% for 6 years in Ontario, Canada right now. Check in your area.

Re: buy 2017 jeep JGC or wait for redesign?

My sister and her husband have a 2015 Limited and are ready to pop in October for a 2018. They are excited about all the new features my 2017. They were hoping for a redesign for a change of pace but I guess not. Maybe they will hold onto their 2015 longer. Probably not since their in new Jeep mode now.

Re: buy 2017 jeep JGC or wait for redesign?

Bought a 2011 coming from a 2005 and huge change. Debated going from 2011 to 2014 thinking it wouldn't be worth it given the few changes --- but it totally was worth it. Probably will get a 2018 or wait until WL 2020 (late build 2020 - LOL). I definitely am not getting a 2017 because of the radio - I definitely want the next gen radio system with CarPlay as I don't want to be stuck with the current system for years. Some people don't think the next gen radio system will be that big of a deal, to me it is as it will be around for years.

Re: buy 2017 jeep JGC or wait for redesign?

^ I'm curious as to what makes the next radio so much better.

The current system has voice recognition and simply requires you to know how to tell it what to do to do pretty much anything from Navigation destinations to phone calls and radio stations. You pretty much never need to take your eyes of the road and its all wireless. The last thing I want is to have to have my phone plugged in.

It also interfaces with Siri without issue and it Google maps, Waze and even podcasts play without the need to configure anything. It's quite brilliant!

I guess I'm not sure what the new system brings to the table.

The new radio will do everything the old one does. However it will ALSO have the ability for apple carplay/android auto, have a faster processor, and greater screen resolution.

I figure if I have the GC for at least 3 years, there will be huge advances/updates in CarPlay over that time that I would like to take advantage of. This will be the first certified CarPlay radio for the GC (unlike the current one - which I know has some iPhone integrated features that I use) so Apple will support it with continuing updates and improvements. Looking forward, having an actual CarPlay radio will have its advantages even if not readily known at the present. Software is moving fast.

It might not be too difficult to retrofit a 17 with the 18 radio.

That's probably easier said than done. That head unit controls a lot more than just the radio.

I posed that question a while back - thinking maybe much cheaper to just replace the radio (and resell current one) than the price increase for the 2018 over a 2017 at model year end --- that idea was summarily shut down by others ... LOL ... oh well, just a thought.

It's like buying a TV, you by the newest one with the coolest features, and a year later a new one come out with more resolution and better features.. It is a loosing battle to me, which is why I take delivery of my 17' on Tuesday. Could care less about Carplay, more interested in the air cooled seats.

For me, CarPlay and the new features of the 2018 radio are important. I have a 2014 with the current radio so to upgrade to a 2017 with the same radio isn't the right move for me and with under 23,000 miles, I can wait (might even wait until 2020, will see).

Re: buy 2017 jeep JGC or wait for redesign?

Its going to be the same radio just added Carplay, slightly better resolution (prob not much) and a bit faster (prob not noticeable).
