The billet Overland in the second photo is body coloured around the wheel wells and below the bumper. Zooming in on the Limited which is closest to the camera in the second photo has a Limited badge and has the 20's.

I didn't see any mud flaps anywhere.
Here is a new theory. Maybe Jeep have rationalised their RHD products and we are being brought into line with the UK. No Laredo models there, They have
Limited
S-Limited
Overland
SRT
The S Limited comes standard with 20" rims and a few other bling/on road bias bits. Maybe be wishful thinking but it would make sense for Jeep to make the same models for all the RHD countries, especially as we are a comparatively small market. More people live in London than all of Australia

Have you deliberately left the Summit off the British list. Surprising seeing Europe is taking the Summit....but then probably they are LHD.

Thanks SNUKE. from what I can gather from this review of the MY13 it appears most of the criticism here has been remedied in the MY14 from American reviewers who have raised the same points in the past. It will be interesting to read Cars Guide's review of the My14. I think it confirms that the MY14 with its improvements will be an awesome drive.

If true this is going to send Laredo buyers into seventh heaven.
Hi Webber. Those wheels are for the Laredo (Yi-Haa!!).

In USA, these wheels are used on the Limited but they are only 18". The USA Laredo have 17" wheels which wheel size is not used in Australia. Therefore the Laredo have the 18" USA Limited wheels and the Limited have the USA Overland wheels. Not sure what the Overland will get but I must say the Summit wheels don't look half bad!

Can't wait to get the MY14. My brother bought the Volvo XC60. I know, I know, there's a black sheep in every family...sigh.....

thanks cptslobodan,
Ausbrians pic of the Overland appears to indicate our Overland will have same wheel trim as the Limited. I do agree with you though, I would prefer the Summit wheels but I do not think that will be the case.

On Dus Dutchland Jeep site they list
Laredo 3.0 liter V6 MultiJet
Laredo 3.6 liter V6 FlexFuel
Limited 3.0 liter V6 MultiJet
Limited 3.6 liter V6 FlexFuel
S-Limited 3.0 liter V6 MultiJet
Overland 3.0-liter V6 MultiJet
Overland 3.6-liter V6 FlexFuel
Overland 5.7 liter V8 HEMI
Overland Summit V6 3.0 liter MultiJet
Overland Summit 3.6-liter V6 FlexFuel
Overland Summit 5.7 liter V8 HEMI
6.4 liter V8 HEMI SRT

The Poms only have Limited, S Limited, Overland and SRT as Model choices. Sorry. Which also tallies with us getting the same as "The Mother Country"

Also in the 2014 section for the Germans there is no mention of the Summit either. It shows Laredo, Limited, Overland and SRT see here http://grand-cherokee.jeep.de/ lots of details on trims. Their Laredo only gets a 140kw version of the Diesel the Limited and Overland quote 177 kw.

Looked at the British & German Jeep sites but both are still advertising the MY13 which only goes to Overland. At that time the USA only had an Overland-Summit which was an Overland. America has now seperated the Summit as its own model. The British & Germans may still well go with a Summit when they launch the My14?
