I think we get it overseas because your parking spaces in the USA are made for Dodge Megacabs and F650's. Overseas, the car spaces are made more for Datsun B-210's so we need the folding mirrors (and a bit of lube) to fit 'er in.

Besides you guys have remote start to compensate. I'd love to warm her up from inside so I can do a quick launch as soon as I get out of the work parking lot.

Also, does the Vapor Package forego the carbon fibre dash trim? As nice as it is, I find it a bit dated, especially when you see all these guys sticking 3M carbon vinyl on friggin' everything nowadays.

Hey man please help me understand -- is having power folding mirrors some kind of badass option? I hear a lot of people saying they wish the US SRTs had it but I honestly have never even thought about having or not having them. I really am not trying to be a punk but I do not understand why this is such a big deal???!!!

When would you really need to use them? I guess going into a tight parking space but I try to avoid those anyway. If you had them would you fold your mirrors in every single time you parked? Have you ever had one of your mirrors knocked off or something? In 16 years of driving (I'm 31) I have never had a mirror dinged or knocked off or broken. (watch it will probably happen to me tomorrow)

I'm really not trying to be mean or rude about it I just seriously do not understand -- plus I have seen a lot of complaints on the forums about this. So its not just you who wishes the SRT had them.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee SRT - RED VAPOR PACKAGE

You must not live in a very dense urban area. USA doesn't have many. Ever been to Manhattan?

Even suburban areas near NYC have very narrow streets, where the lanes are so tight the tolerance for human error is very low, being slightly off-center in the lane with a car parked even a few inches too far from the curb, and those mirrors are coming off.

Some parking lots here are so stingy with their spaces, and parking garages have these narrow alleys, entrances, and "hallways".
Power folding mirror was a good option.
Most Americans won't miss it much, but they made a mistake not including it just for the sake of luxury. It looks and gives a more premium feeling. Gives people an impression.

Are you sure this Red Vapor is no longer coming? Or are we still at late availability? If sales start in September, shouldn't we at least see a picture now to see if we want to wait for it or just get the 2015 right away?

I was annoyed when I ordered my SRT back in 09 and it didnt have it but I'm ok with it and folding in the mirror manually isnt a big deal.

And if in my parking garage, they scratch my mirrors, they will be paying.

And hey man you know just as well as I, idiot valets would scratch the mirror anyway if it was folded.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee SRT - RED VAPOR PACKAGE

By the way, I just joined jeepgarage because I factory ordered the 2015 jeep grand Cherokee srt. Whoohoo, finally! Except...

Back to the topic, after I ordered my 2015 max steel jgc srt with the black chrome and Laguna seats, I find out a week later they are going to offer a red vapor package! When I read this yesterday, I almost felt like canceling the order, and I still might. I need it for this winter, but if "late availability" means before this coming winter, I'd rather wait. It's not the late availability that's killing me tho, but the fact that there are no pictures.

I'm sure I'm not the only one that feels they really need to see some exterior and interior photos of this Red Vapor package that costs 4 grand before they order their new 2015 JGC SRT!
How tasteful it looks overall, how they applied those listed changes, especially the black laguna leather with the red "ultrasuede" and the "5 spoke black chrome" wheels, we have to see it now!

When will they reveal it so I can buy this thing already?!

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee SRT - RED VAPOR PACKAGE

You should see if you can put in a 'change order' instead of cancelling the order.

Too bad there's no pictures to see if that 4 Grand is worth it...

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee SRT - RED VAPOR PACKAGE

I'm sure the red vapor interior will look similar to the interior of the recently released Hellcat Charger as it appeared to have a bunch of red suede accents.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee SRT - RED VAPOR PACKAGE

The charger/challenger has the black nappa leather with red suede inserts.
This red vapor is supposed to have better leather, better suede, filled with better cushion better headliner, more bling on the door sills, etc.

I'm just wondering how long is the wait time, should I cancel, is it worth the wait?
I also wanted to know more about the cushion #7 and the multi-stage airbags.

Seems like the Renegade offers insight on the red vapor PVD color scheme...
