Re: 2014 spied by Motor Trend

I read somewhere 13's will be built through January 2013 ...

Which begs the question, when will the 2014's start production?

Re: 2014 spied by Motor Trend

I know the 2013 Overland Summit is expected to have a black interior option. I just hope they offer an Alcantara Suede/Nappa Black Leather and Carbon Fiber interior or Nappa Black Leather and Black Burl Wood interior on the 2014s and a Blacked out exterior choice. I don't like this frost beige interior I've got anymore.

So the 13's will be a limited run... the burning question, will the '14 with an 8 speed trans be worth the wait?

can you somehow get a photo of the front end without the mask? ....

Re: 2014 spied by Motor Trend

Well that is cool, but i wanna see a change in the interior

It's nice, I just don't like the colors. I like the light frost beige, but it seems like too many colors with the orange colored wood and the brown dash and carpet, and then the black and silver instrument cluster. I don't know. Hopefully I'll change my mind and start liking it again. I keep it clean. I don't even get it dirty. It looks brand new.

I think the new, bigger Nav-unit and the new speedometer are also having an effect on the interior appearance as a whole. The interior on these spy-shots ONLY display the new shift-paddles and the new shifter - this is NOT the "end-product" we will see as MY2014. Milous confirmed that as well.

Yeah, it's also good to have a choice. Since I'm living in Florida, I'm not a huge fan of black interiors in general - but I have to say that the brown on the summit is a bit "too much" for me. Also, the brown upper dash combined with a black lower part and the color of the wood followed by brown seats looks a bit strange for my taste.

The color-combo on the regular Overland (brown seats with black dash and the lighter wood), however, is a perfect match.

So I'm happy that you can now take a little more "conservative" approach. Carbon would be great - as well as Alcantara inlays on the seats - but I think that will be reserved for the SRT8.

However - with the black interior - I think some sort of aluminium trim would be cool...
