Re: 2016 Jeep SRT new features....updated as we learn

@Milous:
Are there any notable changes for 2016 in the UConnect? (I have read the FCA announcement regarding this, but the changes mentioned there are not really notable)

With notable I mean for example a more modern navigation or an online connection in Europe or android auto/apple carplay.

Or will it mostly stay the same in 2016? (except for those minor changes like movable favorite menu options)

I still wish the navi screens in FCA's were as sharp as some of the competition, especially the clarity of the backup cam.

I am not aware of any changes outside of what was mentioned in the press release. No word at all on Carplay.

Re: 2016 Jeep SRT new features....updated as we learn

Just curious: Will those bits of aluminium lower the weight? Or improve suspension somehow?

Re: 2016 Jeep SRT new features....updated as we learn

Suspension changes? Seems like more than a refresh...I don't remember changes that dramatic on last refresh but maybe so?

Weight reduction. Aluminum suspension components will also be used on non-SRT models.

hopefully they can get the casting right and not recall them and send a recall letter saying your going to die if you continue to drive on these.
