2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Pictures of the new SRT from autoblog. It looks pretty good IMO. A very distinctive front end compared to the rest of the lineup. I had some reservations when it came to the updated front but looking...

I think it's a good shifter. I have had it for 3 years and never had an issue. Is it different? Sure. That's where I think the issue lies. People don't like change. They don't like learning new...

Cursed WK2?

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

This is exactly how I feel about it too. Hence why I have looked at other brands as options. The XC90 R Design is on the shortlist if there is no carplay on the GC.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

One can hope that they are updating the engine so that it no longer needs the diesel exhaust fluid? Or maybe the engine is getting updated to be a little less noisy?

All hard plastic seems to be gone even from the door panels. They all appear to be wrapped in leather or something similar.
