When someone gets a new 2019 with the adaptive cruise control and collision avoidance features, please report on its functionality. So far no one outside of Jeep knows exactly how it will work, speculation is all we have at this point. Will is support stop and go without resetting in busy traffic? Will the collision avoidance do only partial braking or will it do a full stop? Etc, etc.
thanks in advance

My JLUS is built and waiting to be shipped. I figure it should arrive within the next 2-3 weeks. If no one posts any info on the Advanced Safety Group I’ll post pics and whatever info I have.

I've noticed that you have a TTRS. Are you getting rid of that beast for the Jeep?
Probably. Can't drive that car hard anywhere but a road course, and track time is very, very expensive. I am putting 16-20k miles per year on it daily driving. It's fun, I ran a 3.2s 0-60 and 11.7s 1/4 after new tires and wheels, and it hauls on road courses. It has a lot of utility for a sports car, but that means almost no utility. ;)

Every track session costs $500+ when you factor in brakes and tires. I end up getting out once every couple of months at most. So, while I enjoy DDing the car and listening to the exhaust, I can't really do much with it on the street, it's just too fast. Any more than slight throttle and the speed limit is well broken before you know it. Coupled with the lack of utility, it just doesn't make sense. I don't have room for multiple cars for myself, so it's likely I will trade it in.

I totally understand what you mean. I was gonna pull the trigger on an RS3 but ended up with a C43 AMG. But like you said, it's expensive to have track days for sure. I've had a few cars I tracked but now I'm ready for a different kind of fun with my Jeep.

I will be trading mine in as well when my Rubi JL arrives. Can't wait...

I’m not getting a ‘19, but I can absolutely assure you it will do none of these things...

Agreed. Manufacturers list 'Stop and go ACC' as a separate feature when equipped as such, and Jeep has no such description for the Advanced Safety Group.

That said, I find 'regular' ACC to be a godsend on the highway, and I drive manual anyway ('Stop and Go' can't work with manuals, obviously). I also like emergency braking, but don't want it to do panic stops (these systems do occasionally have false positives from cars/obstacles that aren't actually in your lane).

Not to go off topic but a Jeep from a performance car is something I don't plan on doing again. Meaning, my Jeep I am going to have for awhile as opposed to buying a new car every year or two. I've had multiple Jeeps and multiple fast vehicles and mirror both your sentiments. Two of the biggest things I absolutely love about Jeeps is you are no longer in a rush to get every where. For some reason I feel like I constantly have to go fast just because my vehicle can. There is a lot of freedom with Jeeps. Another thing is I constantly worry about door dings and everything else. Heck we had snow just recently and I was not looking forward to driving in it. In a Jeep, its all Lets Go!! I never once worried about that with my Jeep. Can't wait until mine gets out of I status and lands. I miss the freedom of a Jeep big time.

My wife has ACC with Stop and Go on her CRV and I've never seen listed.
All these FCA vehicles have it, why wouldn't a Wrangler?

Right. "With stop" is what they call it.
Is ACC really available from anyone without stop and go?
