You couldn't be referring to me...... All of what I posted emitted from the internet, so it must be true....

Seriously though, Milous any hints as to whether or the 2015 GC will receive a face lift, as will as a slight price reduction?? Inquiring minds need to know.... My 2011 GC Overland Hemi lease expires this year....

The 2014 JGC received a facelift. Have you not looked at the Jeep website?

No facelift. No price reduction.

This is what I find amusing and how difficult it is to build the "perfect" vehicle. I had considered a Durango except I did not want the third row seat. Sure I could take them out but it's not the same. One of my favorite features is that the JGC didn't have the third row.

Re: Changes for 2015?

If you want a third row seat that will fit a person over the age of 5 comfortably enough to ride for more than 20 minutes you should look at something with a longer wheelbase (Expedition, Tahoe, Suburban, Grand Wagoneer if it happens).

If they did put a third row in the GC it would be really really tight and leave almost zero cargo room.

I get you really want the GC but need the extra space but it sounds like it's only for 15 days a year and push comes to shove you take two cars which to haul your stuff (unless you got a roof carrier) you'd have to anyway.

Buy the Jeep and then make everyone fight to see who gets to ride with you on the trips.

Maybe reliability and dependability along with good dealer service!

Uh, yeah I am fully aware of the mild facelift. I am referring to the articles circulating on the internet regarding changes (if any) to the 2015 model.

There is several articles with photo's. I am fully aware the articles are simply speculation. My only intention was to post articles that were not posted.
BTW, this is not my 1st rodeo with Jeeps. My 2010 GC Overland/Hemi is my 5th Grand Cherokee.

Re: Changes for 2015?

CapecodJeep, as Milous mentioned (he's a Jeep insider...and he's OUR insider ), 2015 and 2016 will not see any striking changes since they just did a meaningful mid-life update with the MY2014. It will, however, be interesting to see what comes with the 2017 model that includes a complete platform refresh...but it will be awhile before even half-credible rumors start for that one.

I would only expect color options and some added electronic features to come into play over the next two model years, honestly. They are selling like hotcakes as it is (discussion about increasing production by adding another facility) so there is little incentive to make any more mid-course changes at this point.

I think you've hit the answer: Strap the extra people to a roof rack. You can use the sunroof to talk to them or see if they flew off when you went around that last curve.

Re: Changes for 2015?

I have a half-credible rumor for the 2017.

It'll be all new and built at JNAP.

HC500000, where are you?

Re: Changes for 2015?

I for one hope FCA stays away from adding a 3rd row to the JGC either in it's current size or a stretched version like the Durango. I owned a 2010 Highlander and the 3rd row may have fit two small children without major discomfort but that's it. The 2010 Highlander and JGC are near each other in dimensions but the Highlander doesn't need to make room for the Jeeps suspension or a 6.4l hemi so it had an interior that felt more roomy but still the 3rd row was tiny so no way I see them fitting a 3rd row without stretching the JGC and I feel the JGC is big enough already (and weighs more then enough).
