Re: Anyone regret getting a Summit

I was just going through the brochure and it stated that the brown interior has brown stained wood trim and the black interior has black stained wood interior (really a brown wood with a black stain). I know there had been some discussion that they had both had the same wood trim, but they don't. It is hard to tell but when I was looking I did a side by side comparison and thought the brown stain wood would look odd with the black interior but when I looked at the black interior it looked sorta black and looked very nice. I thought maybe my eyes were fooling me that with the brown interior the wood trim looked more brown and with the black interior it looked more black --- I had been told they were the same wood trim. A head scratcher. Well, sure enough, they are two different wood stains which explains it!

Also, Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 - 2014 Grand Cherokee pricing and options had it WRONG!

"Summit interiors (Natura-Plus Leather seats)

BLACK (with Summit Brown open-pore wood trim) (Standard)
BROWN (with Summit Brown open-pore wood trim) (Standard)"

It is Summit BLACK open-pore wood trim with the BLACK interior.

Dan, Do you think the gloss black wood trim the 2011 Overland Summit had or the black open-pore wood trim the 2014 Summit (black interior) has looks better? (if you picture both with a black interior leather)

Hmmmmmm...... the 2014 Summit wood definitely has a warmer more luxurious feel and tone to it no question about it (the steering wheel is gloss of course).

I really did like the 2011 Black Olive Ash Burl with, if I recall correctly, had a hint of silver powder in it to highlight the burl of the wood. It looked best in really bright sunlight as you could then see the detail. In normal or dim light, the Summit wood really didn't look that much different than the Laredo fake plastic "wood". 2014 open pore wood is distinctive and everyone that gets in goes to touch it.

In the end, they are two different animals. The 2014 aims for an earthy high-end luxury feel while the 2011 with the saddle and black wood was distinctive styling. I like them both but no question the Grand Canyon Jeep Brown interior is a step up from the 2011 New Saddle.

The 2014 Summit black interior is also great but was just too much black for me with all the other stuff in there being black. Whereas the brown is more unique and goes nice with the copper accents and all the other black stuff (controls, vents and tons of other things black). Love the brown interior (much more than I thought I would). I am 1000% happy with my choice.

I guess to answer your question, the open pore wood looks better than the gloss.

Hope that helps!

I looked at some recent pictures of Summit interiors and it seems that there are copper accents on the black leather interior. I might be mistaken but wasn't that silver in the past when you went with the black? Copper/black looked a bit strange on the pictures but maybe I'm wrong and the black leather on the Summits still comes with silver accents...

Copper looks great with the dark brown leather - I'm just not sure if it looks as good on black leather.

I think there was some discussion on this...that at one time silver came with the black, then someone said you can still get the silver with the black but I dunno. The "copper" is subtle and ties into the the copper stitching, doesn't look strange.

Re: Anyone regret getting a Summit

I think I found the "switch".

Silver:



Copper:



The stitching - at least on the steering-wheel, doesn't seem to be copper, either:



IMO, the copper trim on the black interior is just one color too much while the silver matched the "cool" color-theme of the black leather.

On the brown leather, however, the copper trim is a perfect match.

Re: Anyone regret getting a Summit

I have the chrome with my black 2014 Limited and really like it. More subtle to me than the silver I had on my 2011 black laredo. Definitely a personal thing.

Re: Anyone regret getting a Summit

The copper trim with the Summit brown interior is an exclusive color. It's different than the "bronze-ish" trim that's in my MY12 and in most of the other current interiors.
