Fold-down passenger seat - Yes? No?

Still planning to buy a 2015 diesel when they become available - Limited, AT, Lux, ORII. And I still compulsively "build" it on the Jeep site occasionally (and notice that the price keeps going up).

The last time I "built" it, I noticed that I can now (a) substitute body-color mirrors and (b) substitute the fold-down passenger seat for the power seat. Thoughts on the latter? Coming from a Yukon XL, I like the idea of being able to cram in the occasional really-long cargo item. But I wonder if that probably fairly rare use is worth the trade-off of all the power adjustments for the passenger. Does that trade-off include losing the adjustable lumbar support? Do you also lose ventilation? Heat?

Re: Fold-down passenger seat - Yes? No?

Look at that a little closer... it doesn't appear to me that you can substitute a fold-flat front passenger seat with the Limited diesel configuration you want.

Bubba,

Since you are spending so much time configuring, take the time to read all the notes that are included. Like when you select diesel;


"The REMOVAL of:
  • 8-Speed Automatic 845RE Transmission
  • GVW Rating - 6,500 Pounds
  • Driver Power Memory / Pass Manual Fold Flat Seat

Re: Fold-down passenger seat - Yes? No?

Last time I did it, it offered the delete power seat option after configuring diesel/Lux/AT/OTII - which it didn't used to do. But admittedly I haven't tried actually selecting the option - I'll try it and see what happens. (That'll be great if it's still not an option - then I won't have to decide.)

Well I just went to try it, and now it's back to the old build site. There was a new one up for a while.

Oh well, not to worry. Probably better for wife to have adjustable lumbar support anyway.

It will probably delete the diesel.

Re: Fold-down passenger seat - Yes? No?

I'd go for the fold down seat it the seat comfort / looks are the same. How often does the passenger seat need to be moved a lot anyway? The convenience for long items would be nice.

My parents just got a Grand Cherokee Limited and it has the fold flat seat. The seat is very comfortable and actually sits lower than the power seat so I was more comfortable than if I ride in my own passenger seat (power), and I'm 6'3"+. The fold flat seat looks just like the power seat except for the missing power controls. Heat works on it too.

Fold-down passenger seat - Yes? No?

I have a 2014 Limited eco-diesel with the fold flat front seat, and body colored mirrors. Using that in conjunction with the fold flat rear passenger seat will make for a nice place to haul extended items, and, if I place a bed roll down, makes for a comfortable sleeping area. If I had my way, I would've got a manual driver seat as well, but it's not an option.

If you use Jeeps website, you cannot order the above combinations together with the eco-diesel, but if you go to your dealership you can order it on 2015's.

Re: Fold-down passenger seat - Yes? No?

We also have the fold-flat and my wife has no complaints, is much better than what we traded in, which always had her back hurting. We have been of two 1000 mile + road trips and no complaints, she actually fell asleep several times, which was a blessing
