The near expired warranty on a Rover would scare me... A lot. I personally also like the Summit styling MUCH more, but obviously that's personal opinion. Also giving up options would be a no go, and for a used vehicle and it would STILL cost more.
Anyway, you see where I'm going with this
Thank you for saying that you think the 15 Overland will be different enough from the 17 Summit to fill the need!

That was definitely a concern of mine that I'd get back into a higher model GC and still be possibly bored. I get bored of cars easily and quickly so I have some decisions to make but the 17 Summit looks really spectacular (with or without Apple CarPlay)!

I would consider it if you can find a deal on a 2014 Range Rover supercharged with around 30,000 miles. That would be worth getting a 3 year older car. It is a beast with 510 HP.. Faster and more luxurious than the Summit and SRT models.

I agree. I just found out they have a 4yr/50k warranty. So I could potentially buy a 14 off lease with one year warranty remaining and then keep it possibly one more year outside of warranty since it wouldn't be a daily driver and then dump it! That's not such a bad deal actually.

Car and driver did this with a '14 overland vs a '10 RRS. They picked the jeep and they are usually biased to there European counterparts. They even picked the jeep summit diesel over the diesels from MB, BMW, and Porsche in a different comparison. Basically what they were saying is that jeep has finally become the American Range Rover with the new grand Cherokee. I'm happy with my '14 after owning nothing but German cars since 2001. I even had a loaner '13 BMW 5 series when I test drove the jeep. I thought it was close enough ti the ride and quality that I bought it. Hers the C&D article.

A neighbor of mine has a rover. After a few barley pops, he has admitted that the thing is a piece of junk and wishes he had bought a Ford product!

I wouldn't have a rover up my shorts even if I had room for a sawmill.

That is a very odd statement "wishes he had bought a Ford product", especially since Land Rover was owned by Ford up until just a couple of years ago. So pretty much all current product was at least partially designed under Ford stewardship.....

If I had that money, I'd go slightly used SRT Jeep.


I've also found that the luxury brands make you pay out the ass for special safety and convenience features. I've been looking at used Macans and SQ5s lately and they don't have anywhere near the features as my Summit. Unless you're paying well over $60k. Really makes the SRT seem like a bargain in comparison since it comes with all the advance tech pkg features.

Re: Buying a used 2014 Range Rover Sport HSE V6 versus a new 2017 JGC Summit

range rover is the second biggest heap o' crap only second to the escalade. over priced and overrated. the srt8 will walk the rover, period. and? the cost of repairs is crazy on range rovers. i have 2 friends, one of them has 2 (one is his wifes), his has had nothing but problems. hers has been 'good', thats about all he can say. other friend is officially stepping out of his rover and jumping in a new loaded tourag. i just dont see the reason to go used on a vehicle with high maintenance and costly repairs. no sense whatsoever
go with an srt8 or overland w/ ecodiesel

Re: Buying a used 2014 Range Rover Sport HSE V6 versus a new 2017 JGC Summit

Having owned a Land Rover and now two Jeeps, I can honestly say the Jeep are soooo much better than the Land Rovers.
I do my own maintenance, and believe me thats the ONLY reason the Land Rover got to 110,000 miles before I got rid of it (gave it to my ex in the divorce).
They require constant "playing with", and they leak like no ones business and from about everywhere (the company line is they mark their territory), had to have the head gaskets replaced twice (aluminum V-8), and a royal pain to access ANYTHING in the engine bay.
All I can say is that it never said no to going anywhere, one of the best 4 wheel drive systems on the planet.
But my Wrangler (TJ) always went as well, never gave me a single problem, and went 105,000 miles before I traded her in towards a F150 Supercrew Lariat (changed jobs and had to travel a lot). Drove the Supercrew for 227,000 miles, and sold her for 2K over bluebook because she looked so good.
Now I'm back in a 2011 JGC and loving every minute.

I'm anal about maintenance and care of my vehicles, probably the only reason they go so far, YMMV.
But I would NEVER go near a Land Rover again, especially with the features and comfort of the JGC for 1/2 to 2/3rds the price AND made here!
