Or an SRT8 that is Off Road Adventure Equipped. Same thing I guess... Would need different Select Terrain, etc.

Re: Changes for 2015?

I suggest heated windshield as on the new Cherokee and "pearlize" the Bright White color so it has some depth.

Current WK2 will not change much weight-wise (give or take 50-100lbs).
HELL YEAH - I want a Hellcat!

Any chance you could buy it as a crate engine? my 1991 Waggy wants some new muscle......

Sorry all but ever since noticing the 6.2 Supercharged engine everything else was just blah blah blah :-)

It's actually not too bad.

It takes a little getting used to, but not as much as I found hitting Reverse in the JGC was.

It should be interesting playing around with both of them once my unicorn shows up.

I will note, out of instinct of not seeing a shifter on the floor/center stack... I reach for the tree...

And yes, not having a place to rest my hand is a bit annoying (which they made the arm rest a little longer or something).

Honestly though, all I would like to see on a 2015 JGC would be to add a Turbo to each of the engines (2 in the case of the CRD).

...well... and maybe the 9 speed... power AND MPG (stole that from Ford... wooo...)

And don't laugh at me, but I really like then look of the 14 Cherokee Trailhawk, would love to seem something similar in a WK2 Overland or Summit ��

Chrysler offers the ivory tri-coat and bright white. Ivory tri-coat is an awesome color. I'm surprised Chry-Fi did not opt to add this color to the Jeep line up. Especially with Jeep swaying everything toward Luxury but keeping to its roots. Heated windshields would be nice for those nice snowy mornings... maybe they will show up as a feature on the 2017 model year in 2016.

If they can do flipper glass what about rear glass that winds down into a tailgate?
I would love that.....to be able to open the rear while driving and not have to worry about the glass slamming down. I guess the 2014 guys don't gotta worry about that.

I wouldnt mind it being up on the steering column like the Benz's (and others) have. Nothing on that side of the steering wheel and frees up the center console for more storage, or whatever...

Even if they moved the selector, which is nothing but a big switch, it might not give a lot of extra space in the console. I imagine the space is filled with the supporting electronics, not only for the shifter, but for the select terrain and who knows what else.

As happens all too often, I could be totally wrong.
