Re: No Power Folding Mirrors?

I always loved the tilt down feature for reverse.

Thanks Milous. Not the answer I wanted but the one I was looking for. Oh well. I'll enjoy my 06 Overland a little longer

Re: No Power Folding Mirrors?

The test for Chrysler is can they deliver all these fancy stuff as power folding mirror,U- connect guardian-Automatic Crash Notification, Emergency Call, Remote Door Unlock and Stolen Vehicle Location Assistance their version of onstar ,will they implement these features in 2012 and future models line up,or they were just false promotion,they debut these features on the 2011 jeep in the NY auto show.

Chrysler had a falling out with Hughs Telematics, the company that designed the system. They were not able to negotiate a deal after the BK. An alternate system is in the works and should debut on the 2012 models.

I hope on the new future Overland summit edition,they will pimped it out with all the fancy option such as power folding mirrors,auto net - the 3g wireless router,chrome or black tubular side step,chrome or black 20 inch mopar wheels,chrome fog light bezel,chrome mesh insert for the 7 slot grill.

Install dvd screen behind the driver and front passenger seats while you still have the panoramic sunroof,and charge us a nice price above the Overland.This is not for everybody.

But give us a choice for those who want cream of the crop top of the line and is willing to pay for it.
Those who want the Laredo,can buy the Laredo,those who want the Limited can buy the Limited,and those that want the top of the line can skip over the regular Overland and but the Overland summit edition,and turn the entire SUV market upside down right on top of its head,and if they could top it off with a 6 or even 8 speed would be sweet,and maybe debut it this fall in the auto show for 2011 or 2012,Range Rover sport and supercharge,Mercedes,BMW,Porsche, will be all crying foul,that Chrysler produce such a top notch SUV with style and quality and all the fancy stuff at a much cheaper price than them.

Question Re: No Power Folding Mirrors?

To revive this old thread, here is a video of a 2011 GC that DOES have power folding mirrors, on YouTube posted in Nov. 3, 2010 along with several other videos that are apparently from an Arabic poster (desert sand driving, etc).

Maybe this is a pre-production model sent out for demo purposes only, or perhaps an early build for the return of this option?

Anyway, a pretty cool feature for those who have narrow garage doors or drive on narrow forest trails. But will it be available in NorthAm?

Re: No Power Folding Mirrors?
