If I configure a Laredo X with the sunroof, it's $38190. If I could add the 430N it would be $38585. A Limited, no extra options, comes standard with both 430N and the roof for $39995. That's only about $1400 more, not $2000. Just sayin'.
You could rationalize it and say your getting a lot more standard options on the Limited for that $1400 than if you were to add in those options on the Laredo priced separately.
It is frustrating to buy new cars these days with the way the put together the options. "You want this, then you have to pay for that, too." A couple things I want requires me to get the Limited, but then I'm stuck with the sunroof which I have no desire for, and I loathe the chrome mirrors and door handles. (I don't even like the chrome strip that goes down the side of all the models, including the Laredo; I think chrome details like that make vehicles look cheesy).
I remember before the WK2 being built, there were a couple articles I read claiming that it would be sold more "a la carte". i.e., you'd be able to pick and choose most of your options without being forced into "packages". Seems Chrysler decided against that in the end.
