Pics or it doesn't exist.
I don't believe they have black window trim on any model.

Well the Paris Auto show has black chrome on the red vapor. If not now, someday perhaps.

Re: 2015 WK2 SRT Red Vapor special edition

Dave Cottrell the LEAD engineer on the SRT Jeep personally told me that NO SRT Jeeps will have black chrome window moldings or PVD Red interior parts.

Re: 2015 WK2 SRT Red Vapor special edition

I hope this isn't irritating but this is the first time I've noticed something on a vehicle and it doesn't produce it. Why does this happen? It is misleading. Don't get me wrong, not a deal breaker but vehicle looks finished when trim rims etc are all black chrome. I don't understand why we would see a video with this at a car show for it never to be produced. Especially when the original spec I was given from the dealer said red pvd accents in the cabin and the vehicle will not have that.

It does suck but just to be clear I never saw mention of black chrome window trim. It was mentioned and shown in the auto show pictures as black window trim.

The reason it happened is probably because of cost. Cost drives everything... Probably wasn't cost effective to make the pvd accents or black window trim.

Re: 2015 WK2 SRT Red Vapor special edition

I get that. I just don't understand why when I ordered the jeep, spec said one thing then literally a week later a video and I see black chrome on windows and didn't question it til Mangoe was talking about it not coming on any SRT. It raises a valid point, why advertise it?

Re: 2015 WK2 SRT Red Vapor special edition

The pictures and video you saw were "pre-production". Very common for changes to occur before a vehicle goes to production. You could ask the same thing of many manufacturers. Chances are the "spec sheet" you were looking at wasn't current. Frustrating I'm sure, but before u could even order it, we were already discussing the chrome window trim. See post #62 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT- features and changes

Re: 2015 WK2 SRT Red Vapor special edition

This is the difference between North American car manufactures and the European car manufactures,the European would have all these things available as an option and charge you for it if you wanted it,to make your vehicle unique inside and outside.

Even if its embarrassing not having power folding mirror as part of the basic price to have it price under $70,000,00. at least include this in the vapor package,black trim or chrome around the windows,black vapor chrome wheels,black jeep logo on the outside,PVD Red interior parts,if consumers is willing to 5k to 6k what is the problem.

I pay over 4k to have classic red leather AMG interior on a Mercedes Benz that's how the Germans roll.(GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT)

If you put all that we mention here as a package deal on the SRT it is still 40k to 60k even more cheaper than the Porsche turbo,BMW X5 M,ML 63 AMG,GL 63 AMG,G 63 AMG.
So what is Chrysler problem ?
