Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Hydraulic steering pump factories are all but gone. There are very few vehicles without electric steering anymore. You will get used to it because that is all there will be in the future. I just read...

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I never thought the GC had that much steering feel to begin with. In fact it probably has the least amount of road feel compared to any other vehicle I've owned so they might as well switch to EPS....

There's no reason EPS can't feel great, not to mention its other benefits over HPS.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Too bad. LSD should really be more readily available across the line. It's far more day-to-day practical than low range/2-sp transfer case.

LSD benefits them too. It is one more wheel providing traction, not only off-road, but in snow and ice and muddy dirt roads and really should be more readily available. I'd at least offer it in the...

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

But those folks don't order ORA-II either, do they? And the ones that do are probably as interested in ELSD as the Hemi and diesel buyers.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I'm sure it's like our 15 Cherokee with the feature. If the cabin temp is too far from what the climate control is set to, the feature is disabled.

I'm not sure why there's so much hate for this...

Re: Lost dash/gauge daytime backlighting

Maybe this is a model year thing, but my gauges and control backlighting is only on with the headlights/running lights.

What you describe sounds like normal operation (at least on my vehicle).

I know as of a month or so ago you didn't have confirmation about CarPlay support. Any update on that front? The rest of the updates sound like a nice improvement.

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

I think start/stop is going to be a fact of life for every car over 4 Cyl in the near future. The ability to easily turn it off easily I agree would be very important.
