Thank you, that is the information I was hoping / looking to find...

This is pretty muchwhat my 2015 GC is...it is fully loaded other than the smoker kit and the dual cell phone option...

The biggest difference I noted was the engine and the tuning / sound between my 2015 and the 2018...the 440 is a totally different drive!

Agreed, the price difference is meaningful. I do - I must admit - like the"soft touch" buttons in the 5 bu clearly NOT a reason to choose one over the other!

I agree, much "meaner" looking...
