Got my 2016 today!!

Picked up my 2016 limited with the hemi V8. Only 17 miles so far. New shifter is nice. Let me know if anyone has questions? I think it's going to be a good year for the grand cherokee.

Is going to be a good year for the GC because the shifter changed or what? Lol nothing is different from 14 or 15.

Re: Got my 2016 today!!

People are really excited about the new shifter, seems pretty minor to me in the grand scheme of things, reminds me of the Audi board I'm on where the 13-16 S4 has pretty much stayed exactly the same except the most minor stuff like the start button getting a red ring around it and there were like 100 threads on the new button and how to get it, retrofit it, etc

No kidding? Who cares? I love my '14 shifter! Exciting for 2016 would have been adding 40 hp to the Hemi, softening the Overland seats or having a factory Corsa exhaust! Any of those would put a smile on my face! . But a shifter . . .

Or at least better leather. The seats wear like they'd be super cushy.

Re: Got my 2016 today!!

I love my 14 shifter. I am trying to educate myself about the new one. If given a choice between the old gated design, the 14 design and a knob, I would choose the 14 design for operation but I would turn its grabbing handle around, along the longitudinal axis of the car and curve it a bit.

No knobs though. I have them on every door in my house.
