New Ownerrrr

Hi

Just purchased a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland in Maximum Steel. At first I wanted the Granite Crystal, but after I looked at Maximum Steel in person, I was sold. I come from an Infiniti G35, I loved that car. But wow this Jeep is everything I've wanted and more. I'll prob be bugging you guys with lots of questions. I've never owned a Jeep or a SUV in general. I figured it was time for me to step up.

Here are some dealer pics. I'll post more in a few days or so.

I'm on the fence. Local dealer has a 2015 HA but new 2016's won't be in for a few months. Torn between getting one now or waiting and getting one in 3-4 months

Powertrain Waranty is changing from 100,000 miles to 60,000 miles. Same 5 years though. Whichever comes first. If that makes a difference to you. I got a 2015 because I wanted the V6 but I didn't want it to have Stop/Go where it shuts the engine off every time you stop like the 2016 will.

But can you turn it off and leave it off? Or is it back on every time you shut down and restart a 2016 WK V6? That was my concern. Like Eco on 2014s would turn on every restart on the 2914s.
