The stop and go on acc already available on the 2015. It stop for 2-3 sec then it disengage. If under 2-3 sec it'll continue cruising again.

Unless the 2016 is an all new systems.

Adaptive Cruise Control. I'll be following this thread with great interest - thinking about getting a '16 GC SRT.

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

I enjoyed the electric selectable steering in my RS5, but I admit I don't really miss it in the Jeep.

Also, I thought we already had stop and go? Assuming you don't stop more than 2-3 seconds.

Hah.. Power folding mirrors has been a topic that's almost comical.. Seriously how big of a deal is this really?? It's eaten up multiple threads and seemed to be a sticking point for some folks. The last thing I'd think about on my SRT is how the mirrors fold.... Let's talk performance here!
