I guess the feature is on our 2022 Lux. The salesman mentioned it. His thoughts were if someone was tailgating you. Mine was maybe to check the load on a trailer. My issue is the car never sits long enough for me to even learn the system. The wife has the car constantly 馃槉. I may have driven 50 of the 1500 miles on it.馃槉

2022 has the same specs/instructions as my '19, here's from the 2022 manual:

Yes, I did read that in the manual. Like I said, that鈥檚 about all I see is the manual 馃槉. Speaking of which, I can鈥檛 seem to find a setting to leave the clock display on the UConnect screen with the radio OFF. My 14 Patriot has that option, but doesn鈥檛 look like it鈥檚 available on the 22 Cherokee. Seems senseless to me to have the radio turned on, just to see the clock. I enjoy quiet driving at times and turning on the radio and muting it is just silly to me anyway. I realize it鈥檚 posted on the instrument cluster, but would be nice on the big screen too.

I miss the clock only setting, as well. I made the time one of the widgets in the instrument cluster...

finally got behind the wheel of a 2019 w ADII & the 2.0T. very fun, very hooked up, tap the throttle & it responds instantly. nothing like the 2014 w/ the softish trans activation. just took it around the neighborhood, no highway. no system Nav but supposed to be able to play a phone map app. no sunroof so that unit is out of the running. not sold on the ADII feel yet. I'll have to spend more time w/ it. all-in-all, encouraging

Having owned several Jeeps with sunroofs I never used, I now look for Jeeps without one, lol.
ADII feel? I didn't notice any real difference going from ADI to ADII.

And @rumrunner likes to hit the beach, so... 4-Low would be nice, or could get him into trouble ;)

I've got a 2014 Limited, been very happy with it & am thinking of shopping for a 2019 Limited. anybody make the same switch? if so was it a good move? if not, in hind sight would you rather have moved into a 2018 Limited instead?
It's a much better Cherokee. My '15 had atrocious lighting, you couldn't see anything on the road at night. While I never had any failures with the ZF 9spd, there were plenty of growing pains and the 3.2 was always underpowered but didn't make up for it with efficiency. The 2.0t in the '19 I bought for my daughter is so much nicer to drive and matches up better with the ZF 9spd. The front end is more attractive as well, only slight drawback is I still kind of like the rear of the pre-19s a tish better. I would never have bought another 14-18 even if I hadn't found the 19 2.0t TH I did.

Not sure if your older model has the lane assist or not.
I found I like to turn it off for day to day driving. Either I was wobbling to much or it was smarter than me 鈥.or both!
To me at least it seems like it鈥檚 correcting all the time on these Pennsylvania roads. Felt like it was pulling or something too much.

yeah I'm picky like that. it even bothered me switching from 225/60-18 tires to 235/55-18 tires in order to get my beach permit. I got my KL primarily as a road machine, commuting 60 miles a day. high speed drifting on & off highway ramps isn't the same w/ the bigger tires ... ;-) but seriously I do feel a difference in every day driving. there's just a touch more bounce, from the higher volume

side note, shopping related. finally got my Son out for some test drives. went to 3 dealers & drove 6 cars. time well spent & I'm fairly certain we've focused in on target brand, model & year. good reminder for me to do my homework before a big $$ commitment

I've never thought the 3.2 felt underpowered- the 9 speed tranny is funky in that it doesn't seem to want to downshift, but if you kick it in the power seems fine to me. I've never driven the turbo though- no one around my neck of the woods has them. All new and used TH's on dealer lots have the 3.2.
