Once my husband and I were going home and there were 6 WK2s driving together including ours and there were only 2 Overlands, one being ours. There are only about two handfuls of Summits and Overlands where I live but tons of Laredos, barely any Limiteds.

There are three in my neighborhood. One dark gray Summit, my white gold Summit, and a really, really nice dark green one.

Same here, few Overlands. Hardly surprising, considering the economy.

I think there's more to it than the economy.

Re: Counting cars

Laredo is the Camry of SUV'S. Hardly ever see Summit's or Overlands.

Re: Counting cars

I see maybe one or two a day around here. Usually Laredo's. I've only seen one or two Limiteds or Overlands in the last month. I'm in Seattle, WA.

Re: Counting cars

On my way into the office this morning, I counted 14 Grand Cherokees. Year ranges from 93-2012.

Yes and no.

On one hand, the economy has brought some higher end buyers down into Jeep showrooms that would normally be buying luxury makes. So that's helping them sell (likely higher end) vehicles.

On the other hand, the economy has also got people who would normally be buying a nicer version stepping down into a cheaper one, or a cheaper vehicle.

And the economy has a lot more people worried about getting sub 25mpg.

But the fact is, there's some stiff competition out there right now in the SUV market, and the GC is in a lonely place being a larger, 2 row SUV. And they made some oversights when deciding features IMO.

Re: Counting cars

You're always going to see more of the lower trim levels than of the higher trim levels because they sell more lower priced vehicles than higher priced vehicles.

Re: Counting cars

I live in a small town so I've only seen 5-10 WK2's driving around...all of them are Laredos. Nearly all dealerships around here have 80-90% Laredos in black, white or silver with only a handful of Overlands and very rarely a Limited.

Re: Counting cars

I see them all of the time. Mostly Black Laredos. Today at the place I went to pick up lunch I saw a Black Limited with 20s and blacked taillights, and a Mineral Gray Laredo, and of course my Brilliant Black Overland with tinted windows, shark fin, brilliant black mirrors and HEMI badge was there!
