Jeep Cherokee Limited MY16

Hi all,

Recently purchased a new Jeep Cherokee Limited form my local FCA dealer for (what I think is) a really good price. The specific vehicle colour I was after (Billet Silver) was not in stock, however the dealer was able to locate a Cherokee Limited in that colour interstate. The dealer then said the Jeep itself was a November 2014 build, but the model year will be MY16.

Excuse my ignorance, but what exactly does this mean? Would it include all the accessories you'd expect to find on a 2015/2016 build Limited?

Thanks in advance

No. Sorry to say but a Nov 14 build is a an early MY15 model (roughly July to July are the MY yrar runs) and was before the gearbox hardware issue was resolved (December 15??). If all the latest updates are installed you will most likely have one that does not easily drop to second gear on slowing to an almost stop.

Unbelievable that a dealer would sprout a mistruth....

I'm going to assume you meant November 2015 build.

The build date is the date the vehicle was assembled at the factory. MY (model year) 2016 Cherokees began production July 20, 2015. The last 2015 was built on July 17, 2015, so your November 2015 build is a 2016 model and includes all the accessories you'd expect to find on a MY2016 Limited as ordered.

Edit: @David_Baker - Your post beat mine. Guess I'm hoping the dealer has integrity () and the OP misposted the build date. Hope I'm right and the dealer is not a scum as you've surmised.

I see you've also posted this on WP. To reiterate my response there:

A November 2014 build date is an MY15. To check (when you have the vehicle), the 10th digit within the VIN will be an F. F denotes MY15. E would be an MY14 and G will be an MY16. The only MY16's that have been brought into Australia are the 75th Anniversary editions which are basically a blinged up Longitude (US Latitude) in various shades of Green.

There have been no changes to the Aust KL with regards to the MY15-MY16 (Anniversary) builds. The MY17 is due for release in Australia towards the end of the year - say Oct/Nov.

ETA: Billet Silver is a colour that is not offered for the MY16 75th Anniversary in Aust. The colour choice is White, Black and of course Green (recon-Green).

MY14 Grand Cherokee Overland CRD - DCR ORAII
MY07 Grand Cherokee Limited 5.7 Hemi - Silver (Sold)

Cant edit my post but just noticed I wrote December 15 was the fix - should have been December 14...

Cheers, Dave.
