"The all-new Quadra-Lift air suspension system will deliver legendary Jeep off-road capability along with the new Selec-Terrain system that allows the driver to choose the drive system that best matches on- or off-road driving conditions (sand/mud/snow/rock/sport/auto mode). Quadra-Lift adds up to 4.5 inches of lift span that is supported by four-corner air springs that provide a cushioned, premium ride. Quadra-Lift operates automatically, or may be controlled manually via console controls."

Wait for definitive info/pics to come out before dismissing it. No one thought IFS on the WK was a great idea, but then they came out with the most off-road capable stock GC ever...

Normal Ride Height (NRH): 8.1 inches of clearance offers improved fuel economy and improved aerodynamics during on-road driving.

Off-road 1: Lifts the vehicle an additional 1.5 inches for added height in clearing obstacles (9.6 inches).

Off-road 2: Delivers legendary Jeep off-road capability and provides an additional 3 inches of height for 11.1 inches of ground clearance.

Park Mode: Lowers the vehicle 1.5 inches from NRH for easy ingress/egress. NRH and Park mode are driver-selectable giving the driver control over vehicle ride height.

Aero Mode: Lowers the vehicle .6 inches from NRH. Aero Mode is controlled by vehicle speed and adjusts for optimal performance and fuel economy.
