Next generation JGC MY2017?

I currently have a 2012 Grand Cherokee that I am contemplating trading in for a 2014. We all know or at least tend to believe that there will not be many changes to the MY2015 and now I am reading MY2016 is the final year for this generation JCG. With that being said then MY 2017 would be a completely redesigned platform. My question is if I were to lease a MY2014 now , how many actual calendar months/years would it be from this point until the MY2017's hit the road?

I think the re designed 11's hit lots mid to late summer 2010, the refreshed 14's were on lots in early 2013 I believe(I've seen some January 13 builds) So basically what I'm saying is if we are lucky the 17's will be available early in 2016, but probably no later than mid summer.

Obviously no one knows just yet. We can't even figure out what changes are included in the 15's yet ....

Re: Next generation JGC MY2017?

I leased my 14" in Oct 2013 for 36months. I did this to hopefully coincide with the 2017 release. I might have an issue if this gets pushed back too far.

Re: Next generation JGC MY2017?

I hope they get released in mid 16. I want to start seeing some photos of the 17 and the Grand Wagoneer...

Re: Next generation JGC MY2017?

chrysler/fiat are likely trying to figure out how to improve on the WK2 with the likelihood that they can't jump on MB coat tails this time around.

If it is a mid to early '16 launch when do you think some pics will hit the net.

Re: Next generation JGC MY2017?

I hope they take their time with the redesign so they don't come up with something that looks like the Cherokee or the Renegade.

My wife was able to extend her 2010 Honda CR-V lease on a monthly basis after the initial 36 months end lease. Not sure if Chrysler has this option. She did this for the same reason as you described. She kept it an extra two months.

I doubt it follows those lines. The 17 has been in development for years.

Appreciate the information. I'll keep this in mind as we get closer.
