The rest is just personal preference as to whether you like the cosmetic changes to the summit compared to the regular Overland. For me, those changes on the summit are not worth a few thousand dollars. This is in no way bashing the summit as I think they are sweet, but as far as I know there is not a single feature/option that sets the summit above the standard Overland. So the extra money goes to exactly what? Both have the same 20" wheels in a different finish, both have plastic front grills one with extra chrome, both have wood trimmed interiors one being wood colored the other black, both have leather interiors.

Hey James,

I disagree with your $3,000 spread. You forget the Summit includes as standard the tech package (i.e. advance warning & adaptive cruise control), saddle, & the new 730N. I think the spread is closer to $1,500 without any consideration to the extra chrome. For me, I wanted an Overland in saddle with the tech package and the new 730N. When I saw the exclusive rugged brown, it made my decision. I do agree that there is a premium for the Summit but not as much as many think. And if you like the extra chrome (personally, I could take it or leave it), newer wheels, & the richer interior; then it is priced accordingly.

It's ok the overland owners are just a little upset they are not top of the food chain anymore, LOL

Re: How much did you pay for your Summit

I tried to order the overland with the saddle in charcoal grey, but, i couldnt get the saddle... i realized jeep was pushing the demand for the saddle into the higher priced summit. i'm assuming some of their decision was "people want saddle then we are going to make them buy the summit". i did hear where teh overland was taken off "saddle" restriction. i'm good with the summit, but, could take those chrome wheels off. are they not making the wheels that were like the stock picture? those were sweet.

I haven't been paying much attention lately, can you tell me what additional leather is being applied to the Summits? Thanks in advance.

The additional leather is across the dash and along the tops of the door panels.

Soooo what exactly do you call that nicely stitched black material thats located all over the standard Overland's dash and door panels? Like I said before both the summit and standard Overland both have full leather interiors. One simply just has more of it dyed saddle rather than black.



I kinda thought my comment would stir the pot a little in a summit thread, but I really did not intend to bash the summit as I already said I really do think its nice, but I was just trying to see if anyone knows exactly where that extra money is going towards.

Well I was just basing it on what I paid for my standard Overland to what the original poster of this thread paid for his Summit (since they were equipped identically). Some of those options being standard doesnt make a difference. I ordered saddle on mine, I got the 730N, I also ordered the adaptive cruise. All im saying is his price was aproximately 3K more than I paid for mine. Thats not a bad thing by any means, he just wanted to know if he did ok and I guess he did. I did get an extremely good deal on my Overland so yes your probably right most of the time the difference might not be as significant.

I was told that vinyl is used in some areas of the rear (and sides?) on the Overland, but those areas are leather onn the Summit. I really can't verify anything there until I actually get my Summit.

Good point - I guess I should have said "more saddle leather".

Regarding feature comparisons and pricing, in order to do apples to apples the easiest way to do is use MSRP.

When I was listing the "upgrades" earlier, I forgot to include the nicer (maybe?) floor mats that come with the Summit too. As always, tastes will vary.

Again, just going on what I've heard, the Saddle/Black package does not use those areas of vinyl -- so no difference there. Like you, I'll know more when I finally get my Summit (can't wait!)

I think going off individual examples is difficult because there could be someone out there who actually paid more for an Overland than someone else might have for a Summit. I'm not sure what the actual MSRP difference is right now for a Summit v. and Overland with 730N RHR, ACC and saddle.

The dealer was comparing it to a saddle Overland that was in front of us. I didn't bother to check the areas he was talking about, as it wasn't a significant issue to me.
