Summit also has front parking sensors if that is something that matters to you

If I do that, what is the Overland missing that the Summit has?
Headlight washers? Very important

Then you get that stupid looking plastic on the exterior. To each their own. IMO, and a lot of other people's opinion, the Overland is far nicer. Can't get adaptive cruise and FCW on a limited..

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Kinda bummed out a wee bit to see that the 75th's will continue as 2017's ! But, I guess with all the "short cycle" model years, 1941 WAS a full 12 months long, so why shouldn't the 75th Anniversary of IT ! Just wondering if Recon Green continues ? Kinda "wishful thinking" they could become "Collectors Items" in 20 years ! ! ! HA HA, just kidding . . . or am I ?

You'll spend a LOT more time looking at that dash stitching reflecting in your windshield than I will looking at the plastic on my fenders.

Not really. After a few days your eyes will not see the stitching on the dash. First couple of days after I got my 14 Overland I saw the stitching, but now I never see it unless I really look for it in the windshield. Al

I just picked up a new MY16 Overland last week with the Luxury Brown and Black interior. When I ordered it I went back and forth on the interior colors, kind of slim pickings for pairing with the brown. Every light interior I have had, I didn't like several years down the road, whereas the black interiors seems to keep up for as long as I kept the vehicle. Plus with light colors, stains were more of a concern to me. I didn't like the idea of blue on the interior with a brown exterior, so black is what I went with. I wasn't sure if it would be overkill on dark but in the end, pretty happy with it. It does get pretty damn hot inside when parking in the sun however.

Honestly I don't ever see the stitching reflecting. I see a lot more of the dash near the windshield reflecting..

That stitching would drive me nuts. It was the very first thing I noticed when I drove the vehicle, and my first thought was what bright-eyed designer came up with this, and where was the engineer to say um, no?
