Eco Mode on the V8 models locks the doors with you outside.

The SRT doesn't do that. It has shocks that are electronically adjustable from regular to sport and track modes. It has nothing to do with road conditions.

The feature you are talking about is only on the $150k Mercedes S-class and other super high end luxury cars as far as I know. Personally, I'd say the air suspension is way better over rough roads than any other car I've driven.

I said 'similar' not 'exactly'. While not an air suspension, the LTZ Tahoe has an adaptive suspension. The Limited 4Runner has XREAS, while isn't really adaptive, it adjusts the pressure in the shocks to counter vehicle lean. Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90 also have adaptive air suspensions.

Re: GC Wish List

Was not sure if did we mention about AC climate control.. I just wish theres an option to turn passenger or driver's side off instead of forcing myself in sweating my ass off while my wife enjoying warm... Vents shut control is worthless.

If there actually have option, I would feel so utterly lousy ha!

Jeep QL already does what you are talking about. Adjusts height based on speed or select-terrain setting, Adjusts pressure to counter body roll, self leveling when parked, etc.

Pretty sure the only company that has road-scanning and GPS software connected to the suspension is Mercedes in their super high end cars. They call it "magic body control".

The Tahoe has magnetorheological shocks, not air suspension. They got it from the Cadillacs and Corvettes. I don't think any FCA vehicle uses those yet and I'm betting Jeep won't be the first ones.

This is my first Jeep with memory (and power!) seats, but the handful of other memory-seat cars I've owned (GMs & Hondas) have always allowed me to recall the memory position while driving.

Thanks for your other responses, btw! I wonder if the "Eco" button is mostly for the Hemi drivers? Any Hemi guys notice if Eco mode helps at all?

-Chris
I'd buy that. If I lent my car to my neighbor, Cam Newton, and had the seat at my setting and then accidentally hit his setting ( he borrows it a lot), now I can't reach the peddles ...oops. I think I would sue for lifetime car washes.

As for the ECO button. You're lucky enough to have 2015. For those of us that were early 2014 models owners, there was a difference. The lag and early upshifts ( 8th gear at 40 mph...woohoo) made for a less then great driving experience, but got used to it.

Now, after many complaints?, the software update ( NOV) has made my 2014 ECO mode just as you say....no difference. The lag is gone and now my 2014 Limited acts like a normal transmission.

p.s. My wish list: a truly MANUAL temperature control HVAC

I'm NOT talking about QL adjusting height based on speed or terrain setting. And it doesn't adjust height based on speed, it simply lowers into aero at 55. Big whoop. Not what I'm getting at. And in NO WAY does QL adjust pressure to counter body roll. It is NOT adaptive. I'm saying they should ADD such a feature, hence making it ADAPTIVE. And yes, I know it's 'self leveling', again not adaptive to road conditions.

I NEVER said the Tahoe has an air suspension. I said it has an adaptive suspension. Something that is possible to incorporate, air suspension or not they are still using shocks. ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1450365894.116653.jpg

There's a difference.

One moves until it finishes. The other requires you to keep your finger pushing the button. A manual button allows you to simply let go and stop the action.

The idea is, if you have two drivers, one 6'5" and another that is 5'6", that's a huge difference in seat position. One could force you into the controls while the other could pull you out of controllable reach of them.

You don't want that to happen while driving.

I probably should have phrased it as "they'll never let you automatically adjust the seats while driving".

I am not 100% sure, but I thought I saw that you can tie a key fob to a particular memory setting. If I'm not making that up, you should be able to use separate key fobs to automatically recall your settings.

Ok, we are on the same page now. I can definitely agree that I wouldn't want to get smashed into the dashboard because I pushed the wrong memory button once! I am perfectly OK with holding down the memory button while it adjusts to my spot, and that is, in fact, how the feature works in my other cars. If I am pushing the wrong button, I can just let go as soon as I notice that it's not going to the right place.

It just irks me that while the car is in motion, my memory position is, for all intents and purposes, nonexistant. Especially since this isn't an issue for other brands!

A second sun visor on each side so you don't have to keep moving the ONE when driving on curvy roads when the sun is an issue.
