Release Date of 2016 GC?

I apologize if I'm creating a repeat thread, but I couldn't find much info on this through my search. Debating buying a 2015 high altitude or wait for 2016 model to release. Anyone know expected release time of 2016 model? Thoughts on 2015 high altitude vs. 2016?

Thanks

The closest answers you'll find to your questions would be the first post in this thread. Milous keeps it updated with the latest info he has.

2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I wouldn't expect the 2016 HA to be much different from the 2015.

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.

Re: Release Date of 2016 GC?

So I ordered a 2016 Overland on February 5th. Still no one knows where it is. I had a Vin number and that was mistakenly shipped to Staten Island, I live in Central jersey. Everytime I contact the dealer I get twisted answers and nothing solid. Then thinking I should go to another dealer they too have no black overlands and actually hardly any 2016 Grand Cherokees. Is there a production issue that anyone knows of? Is anyone else on the "who knows when it's coming in" list?
thanks

Did you not get a VON (vehicle order number) when you placed your order? Did you ask them to show you/give you the printout that shows your order? Something is amiss here...and it sounds like that VIN wasn't the vehicle that was supposedly ordered for you.
