Re: Release Date of 2016 GC?
2016 will have a new shifter that moves and stays in position, rather than like the current shifter in the 2015 that always returns to the center position.
2016 will have some aluminum suspension components and will weigh slightly less than the 2015.
2016 will have different (better) tires, including optional Pirelli top rated SUV touring tires. The 2015 Goodyear Fortera Tires receive a lot of complaints. I hated them myself. Road noise being one of the problems with them.
I'm getting a High Altitude and I'm waiting for the 2016. I expect order banks to open by early or mid-November at the latest (unless production, currently scheduled for Dec 23rd, gets pushed back again).
Also, the V6 in the 2016 will have some changes, including start-stop among other things and has been given as the reason for the delay of the 2016 Model Year Grand Cherokee.
