2014 Overland to a Summit

I purchased my 2014 Overland in October of last year and love the vehicle so far. This will be the first car I can see myself keeping for an extended period of time. Because of that, and b/c I'm kicking myself for not getting the tech package on the Overland, I'm considering trading mine in for a 2015 Summit. I'm pretty sure I can get a new Summit for close to 42 or 43, which is about what I paid for the Overland in the first place (base Summit w/ V6). My wife is probably going to kill me, although 50/50 chance she'll even notice if I get the same color :-)

Anyone else in a similar boat?

Re: 2014 Overland to a Summit

The tech package wouldn't be a huge deal breaker for me. Had I not bought a Summit, I wouldn't have even known what it was like to have the ACC or BLIS or whatever. Front parking sensors are nice though.

How exactly are you getting a new Summit for low 40's? Mine was that price and was a demo with 5k miles on it. And I bought it when the 15's had been out for 6 months. I don't see any dealer going that low on a new car without some serious personal connection.

Re: 2014 Overland to a Summit

I drive a lot for work, so the adaptive cruise control would come in useful (first world problems lol). Obviously there are a lot of other upgrades going to the Summit but that would be a big one for me. Also just that I like the truck/SUV a lot more than I thought, I'll be keeping it for a long time (at least that's my justification for bumping up to the Summit :-)).

With the 2016's so close, there are a few dealers close to me that are dipping into the low 40's upfront (again, V6 w/ no extra's). A little negotiating and a reasonable trade in for the Overland and I really won't take that bad a hit net net.

Re: 2014 Overland to a Summit

Everyone has their own opinions obviously, but for me tech package was a must. I LOVE adaptive cruise. Front parking sensors are extremely handy as well. The suede(ish) headliner looks awesome, and I personally like the styling of the Summit. Adaptive headlights are pretty cool as well.
That seems like a good price if you can swing it. I paid $47 for my new '14 Summit V8 but it was considered a left over vehicle as '15s were on the lots. Mine only had 12 miles on it so I was very happy with the deal and the V8 was a requirement for me.

Re: 2014 Overland to a Summit

Yea, I would love to get the V8 but I think I'll be in enough hot water w/ the wife as is, throw a few grand more in and I'm asking for trouble :-). And I never tow, couldn't justify that one other than it just being more fun to drive.

Re: 2014 Overland to a Summit

So the only thing now is what kind of beating are you going to take on trade in? Sure maybe the purchase price is not far from what you paid on the Overland, but trade is probably gonna be close to if not a good 10 grand less than what you just bought it from them for. I tossed around the same idea going from my Summit with 4,000 miles to a new High Altitude and my sales guy said he doesn't even want to tell me what they would offer me trade in because it would be a joke. He said if anything carmax usually offers the best trade in, but then you lose out on tax savings from the purchasing dealer.

If you're going get grief from the wife,go all in then.

Summit V8.
Wait a a couple months get MY2016 for the real stop/go ACC.

Trust me, the grief will be short lived once she drives it or drives in it.

Adaptive headlights, front sensors, folding side mirrors.

I do find the Summit a bit more cozy too. Feels like occupants are closer together . Interior a bit more cramped but in a good way.lol.

Maybe its me.

Re: 2014 Overland to a Summit

^^^ Overland has power folding mirrors as well! Interestingly enough though, the most expensive Grand Cherokee, the SRT, does not! Weird.

What do you mean about real stop/go ACC? They are changing the adaptive cruise control system again for 2016? How does it differ from the 2014/2015 stop/go ACC? Does it not disengage after being stopped for a little bit? If so, thats pretty cool.

Correct for 16 it sita there without input...I WANT THAT . It also gets full stop FCW engagement with non-engaged vehicles....meaning you r on that fast 2 laner and the car ahead at the stop light isn't going but since your FCW did not have it as a "watched" target while moving the FCW on 14/15 ignores it so u have to brake...the 16 will engage it and brake....I probably would have a hard time trusting that tho....

Re: 2014 Overland to a Summit

Well, got a very good offer on the trade in and the 15' Summit so I made the switch. I'm very happy with it so far and, for a car I know I'm going to keep for a long time, the extra's with the Summit are well worth it.

This may be a small thing, but the buttons on the back of the steering wheel not clicking on the 15 like they did on the 14 was worth it alone!

-Noticeable upgrade on the Uconnect system; same functions but definitely upgraded graphics, responsiveness etc
-They may be the same but the seats feel softer
-As I drive a lot, the adaptive cruise is great

The 15 seems to drive better, I definitely think they've done some tweaking with the transmission. Overall glad I made the switch and the wife was manageable, so a win all around lol.

Re: 2014 Overland to a Summit

What ended up being the damage?

What did they offer you for the trade/what was your OTD price on the summit?

Re: 2014 Overland to a Summit

34.5 on the trade (14' Overland w/ 19k miles), which I can't imagine they'll make money on, and 45 on the Summit w/ incentives (they've got 0% apr up to 60 months currently too). Obviously took a hit on a years depreciation but honestly wasn't as painful as I thought it would be. With 16's about to come out, end of the month and I was willing to walk...I don't think I could have gotten much better.
