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

From the FCA press kit...

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT
The best performing on-road Jeep vehicle ever returns for 2016 with its proven and powerful 6.4-liter V-8 with Fuel Saver Technology that delivers 475 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. Performance includes 0-60 mph acceleration in 4.8 seconds, 0-100-0 mph in 16.3 seconds, quarter mile in the mid-13 second range and a top speed of 160 mph.

New inside the 2016 Grand Cherokee SRT is a revised instrument panel gauge cluster that takes on a more enhanced and high-performance look. The 7-inch reconfigurable digital display now features the tachometer shown in the middle similar to other high performance SRT vehicles, while the 180-mph speedometer moves to the left side of the cluster.

SRT-exclusive Performance Pages are revised for 2016 with an expanded array of performance timers and gauge readouts, while all-new drive modes allow Grand Cherokee SRT owners the ability to personalize their drive experience whether its on-road or on-track.

The drive modes separately control the all-wheel drive system, transmission, paddle shifters, stability control, suspension and steering. Drive modes are pre-configured for Auto, Sport, Track, Snow and Tow settings via a mode select switch on the center console, while the Custom setting lets the driver customize the drive experience to their favorite settings.
Custom — Allows driver to personalize the vehicle’s performance
Auto — Activates automatically when starting the vehicle
Sport — Delivers increased vehicle performance capability over the Auto Mode
Track — Delivers maximum vehicle performance capability on smooth, dry surfaces
Snow – Delivers optimized snow and ice performance
Tow – Delivers maximum towing performance
Eco — Maximizes fuel economy with a revised shift schedule, pedal map and second-gear starts

For added safety and security, the 2016 Grand Cherokee SRT receives a new Valet mode that enables the following vehicle configurations:
Engine is remapped to significantly reduce horsepower and torque; limited to 4,000 rpm
Transmission locks out access to first gear and upshifts earlier than normal
Transmission will treat the manual shifter position the same as the drive position
Traction, steering and suspension are set to their Street settings
Steering-wheel paddle shifters are disabled
Drive Mode functions are disabled
Electronic stability control (ESC) is enabled to Full-on
Launch control is disabled

Drivers can activate and deactivate Valet mode with a personalized four-digit PIN code.

The standard massive Brembo brakes on the 2016 Grand Cherokee SRT can be upgraded further with the available high-performance brake package that features two-piece aluminum, high-performance rotors front and rear.

Also new for 2016, Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT’s weight is reduced due to aluminum suspension components.

The eight-speed automatic transmission in the Grand Cherokee SRT model is specifically engineered to optimize shift quality and shift points for fuel economy, performance and drivability. The intelligent software takes into account variables, including engine torque gradients, kick-down events, longitudinal and lateral acceleration, grade changes, friction detection and downshift detection to determine the appropriate shift map.

Standard launch control mimics a professional driver’s inputs to optimize Grand Cherokee SRT’s performance by bringing engine, transmission, driveline, stability control, and suspension in line for a textbook launch. Controlled by a button behind the new polystable shifter on the center console, the result is improved and more consistent straight-line acceleration. New for 2016 is the ability to set launch rpm between 1500 and 3500 in 250 rpm increments.

The performance experience of the 2016 Grand Cherokee SRT is further accentuated by transfer case proportioning and dynamic controls for the Selec-Track system when the vehicle is in Track Mode. When this mode is selected, 70 percent of the engine’s torque is delivered to the rear wheels for a more pronounced rear-wheel-drive experience. Grand Cherokee SRT drivers will notice a vehicle that is more responsive from mid-corner to exit.

The Selec-Track system on the Grand Cherokee SRT uses performance-tuned software to distinguish the five dynamic modes: Auto, Sport, Tow, Track, and Snow, enabling drivers to choose a vehicle setting that ideally meets their requirements and ambient conditions. Drivers will find the torque split change in Track mode provides a vehicle that is more responsive from mid-corner to exit and one that delivers faster lap times at their favorite track.

The Grand Cherokee SRT sports its signature, seven-slot upper grille with black screen insert flanked by slimmer, adaptive, bi-xenon headlamps that are surrounded by a signature LED character lamp treatment. The headlamps on the SRT model feature a unique black background to distinguish the vehicle from other 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee models while further accenting their jewel-like appearance.

The SRT-model exclusive heated three-spoke steering wheel with a flat bottom features a bevy of comfort, convenience and connectivity controls and more pronounced, more ergonomically efficient paddle shifters.

The Grand Cherokee SRT rides on a short- and long-arm (SLA) independent front suspension with coil springs, Bilstein adaptive damping suspension (ADS), upper- and aluminum lower-control arms (“A” arms), aluminum knuckle, aluminum clevis and hollow stabilizer bar. The rear suspension is a multi-link design with coil spring, Bilstein ADS, aluminum lower control arm, independent upper links (tension and camber), plus a separate toe link, and a hollow stabilizer bar.

I am pretty sure they are there.

Totally agree. It'd make no sense whatsoever if it didn't have em. You can get a glimpse of them as the light catches the hood if you look close enough.

Brilliant Black doesn't show as a color option for the 2016 SRT. Please tell me this is a typo. I just read this on wk2jeeps 2016 feature availability pdf and black is the color I was planning on ordering as soon as they start taking orders.

Ive been trying to find out the same info for a few weeks now. Was planning on doing the same as you it this thing with no brilliant black I just don't understand it. Like Scott said, it's too popular of a color to not be produced but for there to be these signs pointing to no black, is completely odd. Also very curious if there's going to be any vapor-type packages/options. Also curios what this whole "Night" package is. I've been wanting to pull the trigger so bad on this truck, finally have enough saved to make it work and now it just seems like production or lack there of is spiraling out of control.

I just verified that brilliant black and billet silver will be available. Knew it must've been a typo.

I wouldn't hold your breath, I think it has been a standard option for years that has never materialized. It has been talked about twice, earlier in this thread.
