Front park sense sensors

I have a 2015 grand cherokee and do not hear the beeping sounds when I get close to something from the front. They beep as normal when I get close from the rears. I am assuming all of the new grand cherokees have front park sense sensors, am I wrong?

Only the Summit has them in the front.

Re: Front park sense sensors

Does anyone know if the bumper covers can be bought pre painted?

I have a summit, but I like the Off Road functionality of the Limited/ Overland bumpers better. I have been toying with the idea of buying the whole getup (rear + front bumper and fender flares), but the painting part is going to make it pricey...

Re: Front park sense sensors

Leon', you need the whole front and rear fascias to do that conversion and probably a few other things...the Fog lights are different, for example. Financially, equipping a Summit with the Overland cladding is likely a very expensive proposition.

Re: Front park sense sensors

unless I can convince a local with a limited/ overland to trade me

That way I'd only have to buy the front bumper cover of an export overland, which has the parking sensor holes already in there.

And why exactly did you buy a Summit? This isn't the first time that I have seen someone on this site want to completely hack up a Summit just for an extra few inches

Re: Front park sense sensors

The logic (or lack thereof) of auto manufacturer's product planners has always amused me.

The inclusion of certain "options" on higher line vehicles, and the deletion of said options on lesser priced vehicles in the model range, many times seems to be arbitrary, with the goal being to entice buyers to move up in the line. I get that, but there are some "options" that I would gladly pay for on a "lesser" model.

I bought the Overland over the Summit for three specific reasons: I preferred Overland's wheels over the Summit's, I wanted Front Tow Hooks, and I preferred the Overland's body cladding to the Summit's. I also would have preferred to have body colored mirrors and door handles, in lieu of plastic chrome, like the Laredo has.

What I would have gladly paid extra for on the Overland are front parking sensors, HK audio (it is now available on the Overland), and adaptive HID headlights.

I understand that there are limits to custom factory options on a mass produced vehicle, but with the industry''s love of creating "option packages" (like the California package), it doesn't seem too complicated.

If a manufacturer eliminates too many options/features, I believe that they run the risk of pushing a buyer to another brand or competing vehicle. As an example, my wife wanted the 2nd generation Ford Edge Limited. She also wanted a heated steering wheel, as the winters get pretty cold here. Ford, in their infinite wisdom, only offered this option on the Lincoln version of the Edge, but not the Edge. She didn't want the Lincoln with all it's chrome. She ended up buying the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, which had the heated wheel, and more.

Option availability can get insane, as in the case of Porsche, where you can order just about any option, right down to the choice of monochrome, or color logo on the wheel caps. I think they take this to a level that must drive the factory crazy, but they do it, and they get plenty of money for doing it.

I'm not suggesting that Jeep/FCA could, or would go to this level, but is seems to me that they could make more of these options available on "lesser" models...or, at least make some of these "options" dealer/owner installable.
