2015 Overland 4x4

I received my 2015 Granite Crystal Metallic on Brown/Light Frost JGC Overland 4x4 Wednesday. I went with the 5.7L hemi equipped with the Advanced technology group and Quadra-Drive II. Thought seriously about the Diesel, but in the end the HP won out over MPG. I got exactly what I wanted and had to wait about two weeks for one that was in transit to the dealer. It had 5 mi on the clock at delivery.

I took advantage of the Texas Group Buy and was shocked at how easy and no hassle it was. I don't know if it is ok to post numbers or mention SA's name, but I will be happy to let anyone who wants to know what I payed off of the $53,175 MSRP. Only extra cost to me was to have it shipped to me which was a net cost of $315 and I had it the morning after the transport driver picked it up.

I am totally blown away at the ease of this deal, and I would do it again in a heart beat. The SA was a pleasure to work with, and I would recommend this group buy to anyone on the forum.

As for the vehicle, I going from a 2011 MB E63 AMG, so it is a little step down in refinement, but honestly not a whole lot. Of course performance-wise its no contest, but I will say the Jeep compares favorably to my wife's 2013 Land Rover LR4 HSE. The LR4 is smoother on acceleration and the and the glorious ride is typical of a body on frame construction, but the interior appointments of the JEEP are as nice as the LR, but the UCONNECT display beats the pants off of the LR's command system. Also have to go to LUXE package on LR to get ventilated seats and LR4 doesn't have power lift gate at any trim level.

Shifting into gear isn't as smooth as either of the cars noted above, but isn't what I would call harsh. Also I'm not blown away by the 5.7L HEMI, though I will look for a tune and prob add CAI and the Corsa exhaust system.

If I had a gripe about Texas group buy it would be that they were unable to keep the prep guys from screwing on the front license plate bracket (which I think are an abomination!), but I fixed that with some Bumper Plugs - which were pretty much a perfect match color-wise and install was easy.

I spent the last few months of my lease on the AMG going over which SUV I was gonna buy, and JGC Overland won out. Thought really hard about a Range Rover Sport HSE, but at around 78K comparably equipped, I just couldn't make myself do it at this point in time. Even though I could afford it, I think I needed to see for myself how I would feel about driving the JGC for a while and keeping the extra 32K in my pocket.

I've already debadged the 4x4 and Overland fake chrome plastic emblems and am thinking hard about dong the same with the GRAND CHEROKEE plastic stickies on either front door. I left the JEEP in the indent on the rear lift gate and will probably leave the JEEP on the bonnet (no promises though!). I'm digging the way lift gate looks without the aforementioned badging.

Anyway, honeymoon period is looking bright right now. I hope I'm not back on here griping about this and that in the future.

Congrats! I would like to see pics if you can. I bet the granite/ light frost looks sharp.

You literally have the exact same Jeep as me, except for the fact that mine is a 2014. If anybody wants to see pictures, I have a ton in my thread (link is in my signature).

Enjoy it!

Great to hear the customer base Jeep is attracting. Glad to hear your liking your new Jeep. I will tell you that a hemifever tune/Corsa/Moes 87mm TB will make a nice change to the response your craving. Just wondering why you didn't get a SRT coming from a ML AMG 63?
