Want to order an Overland
 
Has there been any date or word on when the Advanced Warning and Adaptive Cruise Control Group will be available? I have been waiting to place an order for an Overland but I am trying to wait until I can get that option.
I have pretty much decided on the following:
2011 Overland 4X4
Dark Charcoal with Black interior
V6 Engine Pentastar
430N Media Center
Off-Road Adventure II Package
And hopefully the Advanced Warning and Adaptive Cruise Control Group
Thanks

When I placed my order last Thursday Adaptive Cruise Control was available. So you should be fine to order.

Milous offers some great info...

Check out this thread: http://www.jeepgarage.org/f73/jeepgarage-exclusive-latest-information-and-updates-on-the-wk2-grand-cherokee-4482.html

btw... If you've ever been in a car with ACC, it's nothing real special. As a matter of fact, 9 times out of 10 it is a pain. Usually the distance settings are way too far, which means someone who passes you and then moves into your lane... can cause your car to slow. It does work well in light highway traffic... if you are a set and forget type person.

I think one of the more helpful items would be blind spot detection. Even though it just flashes in your mirror, to the left, the Jeep does have a hard spot when you turn your head, its not as easily visible as for example my previous Volvo. To the right is simple and easy but merging left etc seems to be a little more tricky due to the visibility being hampered by the rear pillars? I guess it would be

Thanks for the link. That is what I was looking for. Also thanks for the thoughts on the ACC.
