New Summit for New York Auto Show

This Is Jeep's New Luxed-Up Grand Cherokee Summit


It appears there are some exterior changes- the LED lights are reminiscent of the SRT models, the large Chrome grille at the front which some disliked is now integrated further and molded into the front fascia, new rims which I kinda like etc. The interior has some changes- new stitches to the sides of the leather seats and also door panels (RR inspired). However everything else is relatively the same as the '14 and '15 models. What are your thoughts?

I noticed a close-up of the new shifter.

Re: New Summit for New York Auto Show

I like most of the changes except for the Pep Boys wheels and the fact that on their flagship vehicle, they still haven't gone to full LED taillights.

Re: New Summit for New York Auto Show

There's something about the front end I don't like. It almost seems like it's pouting, like some kid puffing out his lower lip.

I definitely wouldn't want to test the off road quality of those wheels.

Re: New Summit for New York Auto Show

Well, since Summit isn't "marketed" for off-road...

Re: New Summit for New York Auto Show

Hmm, still super chromed out. Still has the dark gray lower body so they can charge you a grand extra to get it body colored. Terrible wheel choice. New front end looks way more boxy instead of flowing lines like the rest of the car. Hate that they moved sport mode to a dash button.

Not a fan.

Exactly. Remove rock mode and replace it with super soft comfy mode

Re: New Summit for New York Auto Show

That's funny because they do show it off-road in Tv and print ad's and even in the brochure it is off-road.
