I actually think they're useful.

The active headlights technology [CHRYSLER VERSION] the one that turn when you are going around the corner ,has been reported to be problematic by many consumers who had the technology on their vehicle,the Germans and Japanese seem to master this technology since it has been implemented on their vehicle for a long time and they take great pride and joy to show it off in the the automobile commercial

Thank you Mangoe -

That's interesting. We have the feature on a 2008 BMW 328i and I find the Chrysler version more effective. It seems more responsive and turns farther. Both seem reliable too.

There was a thread here about these active headlights that says they tend to shake when they move left or right, these are little things that give Jeep an overall negative ratings when they do overall quality report such as , squeaking steering wheel
shaking active headlights when they pivot left or right
shiftier that is problematic when trying to put it in gear or park,sprung out of park as demonstrated on CNN video.

I think they have address all these issue with the new traditional simple gear shiftier design that is reliable but works.
They have got rid of the active headlights that pivot left and right.
They got brand new electronic steering in the new Jeeps, might eliminate squeaks over time, I am still driving a 1995 jeep grand Cherokee an orvis edidtion I don't know anything about squeaking steering wheel I BOUGHT BRAND NEW.

Also water pump, never had to change any water pump on my 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee, my jeep is 21 years old explain that to me right here in Canada I have driven through some of the most harshish winter here in north America Saskatchewan Canada and still driving 21 years and going.

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT and ? Front bumper spy pics

I was a little hesitant to pull the trigger on a new '16 SRT knowing the '17 are coming shortly but I think I'm sticking with the '16 for now, proven styling, new shifter and slightly updated instrument cluster I think it's a good combo...plus didn't notice any notable changes to the rear end of the '17...

Yes definitely alot more that just the rear spoiler but snowbill27 was talking about the rear specifically when I answered that.

Hence, the bolded "new spolier" confirming your response, more info never hurt anyone's decision is all.

Thumbs up Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT and ? Front bumper spy pics

Thanks Mangoe for the photo, that helps alot, actually the '16 that I'm looking at has the same "5Ten" wheels except they were silver alloy (which for '16 they only come black on the Night edition). Told the dealer if they powder coat them gloss black and cover them under the warranty we'd have a deal. Originally I wanted the spider monkey wheels and I still like those a lot, but after seeing the 5Tens in black I really like the change up since the SM wheels have been on the SRT for quite awhile, still love those wheels in hyper or black though!) I'm planning on "night mode" the badges etc anyway...So I think my decision is pretty well made. Really like what they did with the new instrument panel.

Notes from my Test Drive that I haven't heard a lot of people cover on other forums or YouTube:
-On the far left of the instrument is no longer the Tach, it is now a permanent Speedo 0-160mph I think) Looks much better.
-The instrument cluster graphics have been updated overall and look more upscale.
-The new shifter is much nicer and is much smoother and overall feels more upscale. I've had a Limited and Overland and the gear shifter though at first seemed kind of cool, quickly became gimmicky after the newness wore off. Also noticed the texture film literally started to peel after 20k miles.
-The entertainment screen and the back up camera seemed to be higher resolution than before
-All/Most of the button indicators are now blue instead of amber such as the eco button, and the mode dial indicator (very nice touch)
- I believe there is an added quick menu "SRT" button on the center console.
as well as added info screens with additional adjustments for the SRT (not 100% on this as I don't really have anything to compare it to)
-Steering feels different on the 16 vs. the 15 I did drive both. I preferred the feel of the '16
-Valet Mode (I did see that others cover this)
-Overall take away the 16 just had a much nicer, plusher feel IMO, originally I could of had the '15 for about $3-4k cheaper but chose to stick with the '16 after the dealer threw in the rear DVD (doubt I will ever use it though nice to have) and painted the wheels for an additional $1K over the '15


Should be picking it up next week will post photos.
