FIAT S.p.A. - Home

that is true, but I work for Maserati and Ferrari is its own entity. that came right from the Maserati reps mouth. fiat isn't involved with Ferrari that much however the 4.7 v8 motor you find in the Maserati gran turismos and older Quattroporte is a Ferrari motor. now some of the pictures ive seen of Alfa Romeo's SUV are pretty cool. jeep should take a page out of their book

Of course...but Milous maintains that site as well as is the "insider" and a moderator here. And it says MY18 released in CY17. I'd trust Milous over the external rumor mill. He's done a great service in the time I've been on this forum.

Re: When Is The next JGC complete Redesign?

On a side note. There is meant to be another refresh at the end of 2015.
Anyone know what sort of improvements where looking at? Most specifically, i'm interested in the interior. I'm sure they must already have an idea of what they are going to refresh. Or will it just be a case of colour changes and a couple more gadgets?

wk2jeeps.com says the 2016 Grand Cherokee will have a "refreshed interior and exterior".

Re: When Is The next JGC complete Redesign?

Yes, i read that. I was just wondering if those in the know, know if its a decent refresh with changes to materials used, design,etc. Or if its just a simple change in colours.

Cheers!

My prediction:

Probably similar in scale to the refresh in 2014 which made changes to the 2011 design. Probably not a change to the body shell itself - just moldings, details and front and rear including lights. Interior probably change in colors, electronic features (park assist, lane departure warning, etc.), and most def a greater differentiation in interiors based on trim levels with the Summit getting even more luxurious.

Oh.....and the recently CONFIRMED Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Hellcat.

Re: When Is The next JGC complete Redesign?

I read somewhere that on the next major new build they are going to drop the German platform and go to one by Alfa Romeo.
