Jeep skipped Wrangler to debut its newest features

SecondTJ

Now that JT is being introduced I'm seeing all kinds of electronic off-road goodies that should've been on the JL launch. Even Off-road pages got pulled from JL's initial launch.

- selectable speed control
- tire fill alert
- Off Road+
- front facing TrailCam

I wonder how long before these finally make their way onto JL.

What is Off Road+ ?
"Experienced wheelers will love the new Off-Road Plus button, which assumes high friction and low speed in 4-Lo and high speed and low friction in 4-Hi, adjusting ESC, accelerator sensitivity, and responsiveness (more in 4-Hi, less in 4-Lo). In low range Off Road Plus adjusts the shift strategy to favor slow speed drivability and provides enhanced brake lock differential (BLD) control to maximized traction in slow-speed rock crawling. In 4-Hi, the trans calibration maximizes the powerband for more responsiveness while ESC has a lower threshold for traction control intervention to enable wheel slip at speed and the ability to drift through loose terrain, such as sand. In addition, drivers can hold down the traction control button for 5-seconds in Off-Road Plus and eliminate the ESC intervention altogether."

These were announced a while back and shown for demo and shows. They have to have additional stuff to add to the new toys to make them wanted just a little bit more. Prob should of been on the JLU to begin with, but this is a normal business model for most places so not surprised.
