Re: New: 2015 Grand Cherokee High Altitude Edition

Regarding engines, obviously all thats out there are V6 HA's. Is that pretty typical they just pump out a ton of V6 models then eventually start with the higher offerings such as the V8 and diesel?

Re: New: 2015 Grand Cherokee High Altitude Edition

I like the HA's body styling and I like the black chrome. I do agree with others that the mix of black chrome, chrome and gloss black is a little weird.

I'm also curious about how the black chrome will stand the test of time. My 14 Overland's lower front chrome trim is exhibiting signs of really fine pitting in the 2+ years I've had it. That's a sandblasting effect coming from the high number of frac sand trucks we have on the roads around here. So I'm wondering what black chrome would end up looking like. Probably even a more pronounced sandblast look.

Interior wise, I don't care for the HA's silver trim and the lack of contrast stitching on the seats. It looks plainer than my Overland. I do like the HA's full leather steering wheel as I'm not a fan of the partial wood wheel I have on mine.

I see that the 16 non-HA Overland is going to have copper brown contrast stitching on the dash and seats with the black interior. I think that'll look nicer than the white stitching I currently have, especially with the bronze trim.

I see no sense in slamming anyone's choice out here. Everyone has different tastes and they'll buy what they want. Like others, I'm also glad Jeep has added another choice to the lineup.

The 3.6L is normally a high percentage of builds across all trim levels. I think relatively few dealers order the V8 for stock... and those are probably in areas that have a proven sales volume for it.

I was surprised to learn from my dealer that they didn't sell one non-SRT V8 in the entire 14 MY and so far none in the 15 MY. They said they've sold one SRT and only 2 diesels so far across the same time period. They aren't a mega-dealer but they move a decent volume of GC's in this area.

I'm guessing V8's and diesel's will most likely be special orders only for most dealers. Typical because of how well the v6 with the 8speed is as far as performance. Really made a huge difference over the 6 speed tranny.

Re: New: 2015 Grand Cherokee High Altitude Edition

Yeah, special order is the most likely way you'll get a V8.

I think stocking v8s is a very regionally dependant thing of 188 GCs on my dealers lot 39 are v8s with 14 being SRT so thats 25 non srt v8s. They stockem in the percentage they move em just depends on what the area is buying.

Re: New: 2015 Grand Cherokee High Altitude Edition

If the dealer doesn't actually order any HA with V8 and/or EcoDiesel engines...they will not have any. Jeep doesn't just sent out an "assortment"...
