So hopefully that is true, because I found the performance a little lacking in the '11-'13 models.
There is no performance lacking in the MY14 CRD. A stunning car other than some Uconnect issues that members are experiencing. Love the air with the Overland. So smooth. You feel like you are "floating" down the highway.

Yeah, I imagine there wouldn't be as the '11-'13 was quick enough for me!
I was referring to the V6 petrol. I found the previous model to be a bit lackluster.

It only gets worse.... especially if you see others on the road, or continue to have people rave about their drives here

I'm off tonight to take a look at the 2014 in Perth, so wish me luck!

Looking at either:
- '14 Limited CRD
- '14 Limited V6 petrol
- or possibly a '14 Overland V6 petrol if I can get for around $68k
Hope you get back into your ride soon. I can see the dilemma unfolding, CRD or Overland <--- That's you arguing with yourself over a CRD or Overland
To help confuse you more, I can't choose what is more important, the CRD or the Overland.

Thanks webber. Were they flat or rolled in? Sorry for being a pain.

Haha, yep, that's exactly right!
I'd love the Overland for the extras like quadra-lift for the little offroading I do, but I'm concerned the V6 won't be capable enough.

Hopefully in an hour I'll find out!

Hey Chooke, yeh still waiting. The tow bar has arrived, but we will wait for the reverse camera before going back to JH to get it all fitted at once

No reason why not, it's the same dimensions 50mm x 50mm.
