2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Indeed. Maybe oil changes and brake jobs can also be performed via reflash by that dealer.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Also maybe worth pointing out that the lower portion of Overland (and below) front fascia is removeable for even more clearance and approach angle. Not so for Summit (or SRT). My '08 WK has this...

Been lurking and thinking of buying a '14 (or '15) Ecodiesel, however this could be a deal breaker. I hope there will be a TSB & fix.
