Blacked-out grille holes and window surround default for MY2017?

Yuk, not a fan. Looks like ill be keeping my '14 and do the forced induction myself. And that steering wheel. 😖 Imagine it with a front license plate, it's going to look like a chipmunk, lol.

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Running Footage

If they didn't have to put those 3 stupid air vents below the grill rings and left them alone then it would be tight. But am I kicking myself for buying a 15 instead of a 17? Nah. Aside from the front it all looks the same minus a few things. Not worth all the extra $$$.

Now a 707 hp motor...then take my money! Lol

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Running Footage

Thought I read the hp was going to be 640, not the 707hp?

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Running Footage

Why no SRT logo on the steering wheel?? It's the SRT steering wheel with the Standard GC Jeep logo.

WTF?

So many confusing little foibles the only appealing factor now is the Hellcat power of the upcoming Trackhawk.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who would walk if it wasn't for the prospect of a 700hp rig.

It's gonna be interesting to see the styling decisions made for the TH.....

My guess is that airbag cover on the steering wheel is leather wrapped...part of the new interior package....more cost effective to develop one and share it with the Summit...just a guess....will be interesting to see a non full-leather wheel...

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Running Footage

Eh. It's okay. I usually get upset with the new stuff comes out (personal problem I know, ha!). I'm cool with my '15 until we see a complete redesign. I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything.

Look good!

It's going to look REALLY good when you can see intercoolers though all of those grills.

Good catch!

WTF is FCA thinking?!? I don't like most of these changes and feel it makes the SRT even less distinctive.

Pretty sure it still has SRT on steering wheel, don't know why that one didn't have it....

I honestly don't know but I am hoping for the 707.

I've driven quite a few cars with HUD and the display is nearly impossible or very hard to see with polarized lenses. Regular sunglasses I could see it clear though. It's a known fact that polarized lenses distort digital displays. Anyway, not feeling the 2017 front end. I'm still wondering why FCA would go through the trouble of doing a minor refresh for the final model year or two of the wk2's.
