Gave up waiting for MY 2017 Car Play and Bought a 2017 Summit Today

I give up on the radio, I couldn't wait that long (Spring 2017 at the earliest which means delivered by next Summer). I wanted to Trade before my Warranty was up.

Test Drove a 2017 Summit Today and bought one. Will pick up next week. The Color I wanted is due in any day.

Red with the Two Tone Black/Brown Interior.

I didn't get near the deal I did trading in my 2014 Limited for the 2015 Overland. Considering my Overland has a frustrating Carfax Ding on it ($1200 Mirror replace that was not my fault), I did pretty good.

The new Chrome Grill on Overland and Summit is butt ugly IMHO.
2016 looked ok even though I still prefer black on all of the GC's. I will kind of miss my 2015 Overland wheels. They were SO easy to clean and always looked clean. I do like the look of the new Summit Wheels, but they don't look like fun to clean.

I think the round Tips on Dual Exhaust looked nicer on Overland than the Square tips on the Summit. The square tips look like "After Market", the round ones look like big stock pipes.

To be honest I didn't notice the difference on the Summit with Noise Canceling and Acoustic Windshield (one of the main reasons I went with Summit). But it's hard to compare and very well may be much quieter.

The HK 19 speaker Stereo is definitely better, no question, but not by as much as I was expecting. Hard to give a number but maybe 25% "better". Again hard to compare with out comparing side by side and I didn't play with settings. I was using my own Music Stick. Where are the 19 speakers by the way. I was expecting a bigger Subwoofer speaker.

The Lane Assist and Steering was Great (one of my main reasons for the upgrade).

Oh and after using the new Shifter. I agree the old 2014-2015 Shifter is BAD. I was surprised to see they left the paddle shifters on the steering wheel even though they exist on the shifter too.

I assume the Engine Start/Stop was on but I never even noticed it.

I really love the two tone, was always envious of other folks that have had it on various Trims.

I'm hoping some day down the road I might be able to drop in the Car Play version of the Radio. If it doesn't happen, no biggy. But if it's doable for a reasonable cost I will.

Hopefully I'll have it Mid Next week.

Re: Gave up waiting for MY 2017 Car Play and Bought a 2017 Summit Today

Congratulations on the new Jeep.

My Summit is in D1 status, so could still be a month away.

I mentioned in an earlier post that I think the Summit front end actually looks better with a license plate on it. There seems to be too much blank space.

Congrats! V6 right since I think the stop-start isn't on the V8?

Congrats! Isn't it matte chrome anyway on the 2017 Summit? Because I didn't like the shiny chrome prior and went with the HA. But the matte I don't mind.

It is more Matt but still more to the Chrome side.

What I don't like is the Web Has this Filler Between Each Diamond Vertically. It's just weird and makes it look cheaper. It may grow on me.

The old one was just this consistent web of Diamond shaped holes with the same thickness between diamonds vertically and horizontally. Looks more elegant.


The Grill on the older SRT that shows at the Top of the Forum is the nicest looking Jeep Grill. Black Web with Chrome Trim. Doesn't really matter what the Web holes look like when black.

Glad you brought this up. Wondering how hard it would be to source some limited black grille fillers and swap them out. I have a 17 Platinum Summit currently in route (finally made it to my state today - woo hoo!) and I don't care for the current grille fillers either. Seems the limited swap may be easier than trying to paint, no plastidip though - lol

I'd be curious how that goes if you decide to do something.

Re: Gave up waiting for MY 2017 Car Play and Bought a 2017 Summit Today

Congrats, sounds like a awesome car. As far as start/stop, you'll definitely notice it. When I test drove a 2016 it didn't activate much at all on the first part of the test drive for some reason, then later it started working. It is not a seamless system so when the engine turns off and on you will know for sure. I was hoping it was a little smoother but it's not bad I guess.

I believe there are "only" 14 speaker locations in the cabin, but some of the speakers are two-way, so they are counted as two.

From the diagram you will see there are 3 subwoofers.
