Re: 2013 Summit Edition now open for ordering

For 2014 hopefully they offer either the SRT interior on the Limited or Overland and/or a high end black Nappa leather interior with black olive ash burl wood and white or silver stitching instead of the saddle stitching, that's the only thing I don't like; well that and all the chrome on the exterior so hopefully they offer an altitude option on Overland or Limiteds.

A white Summit with either interior will look awesome for sure.

Re: 2013 Summit Edition now open for ordering

Milous-

On the front page it says the Summit package includes power tilt/telescope steering column. I know the deleted that feature from the Lux package on '13 Limiteds, but did they also delete it from regular Overlands standard feature list and that is why it is listed as an additional Summit feature or am I reading too much into it?

I'll probably catch heck for this, but the black interior looks ordinary, like any with a black interior.

My opinion, of course, since others will LOVE the all black interior, especially in Phoenix, Arizona during the summer.

Truthfully, I went for the Summit and the Jeep WK2 in general because I saw the tan/saddle interior in the brochure. If I had seen the black interior I don't think I would have looked twice.
Agreed, this all black interior looks plain and boring. I don't like it - the black wood just kills it, there's no contrast and it just ends up looking dreary.

Most BMWs, MBs, RRs, etc. that have black interiors also come with plentiful aluminum or wood accenting to break up all the black and provide some style and contrast. You know, just like the Overland does, and the black wood on the Summit with Saddle interior does.

I originally wanted black interior with the black wood. Seeing it now, I'm glad I didn't. It looks like a base Laredo with leather.

Re: 2013 Summit Edition now open for ordering

I have the black ash wood grain in my Oz spec Overland which is essentially the Summit in the USA. The interior looks great, the picture does not show the nice black/silver of the wood grain and it is not a boring as a BMW/ Audi stark black interior.
I have heard many of you complain that you do not get the black wood option in the USA as it was only an export inclusion on the CRD models, and when Jeep release it, people are complaining it is now included.
I am sure once you sit in one, you will appreciate the new colour scheme as it suits the car very nicely.

Re: 2013 Summit Edition now open for ordering

It's sweet and what I always wanted, with the silver stitching like they got in Oz and Europe. It will probably look pretty good with saddle stitching too though, just not as good in my opinion as the silver or white stitching.

The power tilt/telescope wheel is Standard on the Summit and on the SRT8. It is not available on any other models or trim levels. I believe that there have been some supply issues that caused the feature to be dropped on the Limited and standard Overland and that it will be returning to those for model year 2014.

Glad they made black interior an option, although I much prefer saddle. I've owned a number of black interior cars over the years as well as tan interiors. The saddle is my favorite by far, especially with the black carpet and accents. And very stylish to boot.

JWS360 will become famous soon enough
Isn't the 2014 just around the corner?

From what I've read the 2014 with an 8 speed transmission & much larger Nav screen, etc is only 4-5 months away. If the 2013 is destined to be a very short year how will that effect depreciation?

We've pondered returning to a JGC, but with dismal mileage even in the 6 are awaiting the improved transmission, etc.'

On a personal note, I don't at all care for black interiors. Drab and claustrophobic, IMO.

Once the 2014s are out and about for awhile, demand for earlier models will drop significantly as will the value.
