There are 3 different distances you can choose. It lets you pass the car you were following if you change lanes without touching the pedal. The way you can set your cruise speed is very cool also. In the EVIC a digital speed pops up and you can increase or decrease it to the exact speed you want to travel. He never liked any of my Jeeps until now.

Did it apply the brakes for you at all when it went off?

With the adaptive cruise control, when you switch lanes to pass someone, how hard does the computer accelerate to get you back to the set speed? My brother never uses the ACC on his Toyota Sienna because when you switch lanes, the computer floors the accelerator, which causes a hard downshift and noisy acceleration at very high rpms. I'm hoping the Jeep is "smarter."

1. No it does not apply the brakes when the warning goes off.
2. We only changed lanes once and it seemed like a slow steady acceleration. We were going 40 and it was set at 80. There was another car in the lane we changed into but they were 4 or 5 car lengths infront of us. I don't know what happens if the lane is clear, but I don't think it will floor the accelerator. I would guess it has alot to do with the speed your cruise is set to and the speed you are traveling.

Finally...D1 with est ship date 12/13. Hopefully it will be in my driveway before Christmas. It's been only 9 weeks and 2 days since the order was placed. My wife told the salesman that they better put a big Red Bow on it. Hohoho!

Seems like a whole lot of Overlands have an estimated delivery of 12/13. Starting to think that is a made up date, can't be that many Overlands getting delivered to different parts of the country on the same day.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

I ordered on the 9/20 and was just told the est ship date as of today is 12/06 but I on our tracking sheet the est to dealer was the 12/11 but do not see that happening. But from the tracking sheet looks like it takes about 20 days so will have figures crossed for it to only be 18days have it for x-mass that would be a great gift to myself.
