Power Fold Mirrors

Does anyone else find it rather odd that Jeep would put power fold mirrors (finally I might add) on the $50K range overland and summit but not on the $70K range SRT. That's the one thing I'm really irritated (prob too strong of a word) about with my new '14 SRT, other than that - after one night and 30 miles, I'm in love!!

Re: Power Fold Mirrors

Does seem odd.

The next question is, can they be retrofitted to the SRT? ie, buy the GC Overland/Summit mirrors and fit them to the SRT?

I only have a single car garage so space is tight already.

Re: Power Fold Mirrors

in the GCC spec's we do get them as standard, but instead we dont get the signal lights under the mirror's

i think this option varies by region

If I had an SRT, I wouldn't be parking next to something that I need to move the mirrors in for. Lol

Re: Power Fold Mirrors

I should clarify that is was the 2013 brochure. So, did any of the '13's have power fold mirrors?

Re: Power Fold Mirrors

OK, here's the "options" brochure for 2013 model Aussie Jeeps.

Note the section for external mirrors. SRT should have "Power folding with memory, heated, auto dimming for both driver and passenger side, body colour (or color for you Americans lol).



A mate has just bought a ex demo 2013 SRT8. I'll check the mirrors when I get a drive of it next week some time.

Re: Power Fold Mirrors

It's funny. As stated above, my 2014 Summit has power folding mirrors and I thought it would be great that I finally have a vehicle that has this feature. But other than to try them and make sure they work, I have yet to remember to fold them in when I park. I think that when I lock the vehicle, they should automatically fold in on their own, but they don't. Chrysler probably doesn't want to give a self folding feature when vehicle is locked fearing warranty replacements.
