If the 15 has new options that you must have then get one. Otherwise, you'll probably get a good deal on a 14 once the clearance sales start in the summer.

Re: Changes for 2015?

Hmmmm i remember seeing somewhere the screen may increase to 9.7. Not sure if that's on here or somewhere else. I'm not real sure about the "foot" activated liftgate hmm.. I want to guess the 12in screen. Although much bigger and they may as well slap in a led HDTV lol.

The current 8.4" radio screens will continue for model years 2015-2016.

Re: Changes for 2015?

12" screen most likely. Think of Tesla's screen...

Tesla screen is pretty much an iPad that's stuffed in a dashboard.

Tesla's screens are 17" (portrait orientation). They control everything. I think that Jeep's redundant manual controls are ideal in a utility vehicle.

Change, perhaps, meaning that they could go with a next (3rd) generation radio and still stay with an 8.4" screen size. I really don't see a need for a larger screen, and hope that they stay with the 8.4.

Above all, I sure hope that they don't mimic the utterly ridiculous center stack 2-screen design, like what's in the Acura RLX:

Agreed...the dual screen looks even worse on Infiniti's G37 replacement.

Any word on 2015 colors for the GC?

Re: Changes for 2015?

From WK2Jeeps.com for the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee:

New: 360 camera system
New: Foot-activated tailgate

I like the 360 camera system a lot, and I guess the foot-actuated tailgate will be nice too.
