Just signed the check for my new Overland

It will be delivered to me from Detroit tomorrow, 300 miles out. It was the closest one I could find built with the color combo, and options I wanted.

'16 Overland. Black / Black, 5.7 Hemi, Advanced Tech Pkg, and Harmon Kardon Stereo.... this one also has the CD player which I didn't care to have, but it's better than waiting for an order to be built.

Dealer just sent the pic....

Congrats!

If you want to remove the CD Player and get back all the lost storage, there's a sticky thread in the Nav/Audio section that will be helpful to you.

Re: Just signed the check for my new Overland

Happy you got a JGC that is close to what you would have ordered. I'm looking at the 2015/16 JGC or GMC Canyon SLT ( once they change/add some options ), my question is about the Harmon audio. What are your thoughts/feedback?

I saw that thread before I received my new car, and was curious about possibly doing that procedure. However, I think it's fine. Don't know how much I will actually use the CD player, but it's nice to have anyway. The storage space is plenty for me. I have enough room to keep the items that I need, and not a bottomless pit. My Wrangler has a storage bin that is equivalent to a 5 gallon bucket, and it was filled with stuff I hadn't seen in forever. Too much storage space just leads to items piling up at the bottom, never to be seen again. IMHO, that makes it more useless than a smaller storage that you actually can find the items you use most... i.e. pen, flashlight, Kleenex, office keys, etc.

I also looked at Chevy Colorado, I wanted to like it, but I felt too cramped in it. I think a loaded Colorado with the diesel would've made for a nice vehicle, but I just couldn't get comfortable, and back seat passengers would not have a chance, legroom was non-existent back there when the front seat moved back for me.

As far as the HK stereo... so far I'm very impressed. The GC is tomb-like quiet... especially coming from a lifted Wrangler, with 35" KM2 mud tires LOL! But I compared the HK with the standard stereo and there is definitely a difference. I thought the standard stereo was fine, but for me, having a $50K+ vehicle without premium sound was cutting a corner I felt shouldn't be cut. Especially since you cannot really do much in aftermarket. Obviously changing the head unit is out of the equation, and changing to aftermarket speakers will only get you so far. I changed to aftermarket speakers in my Alpine stereo on the Wrangler and it made a very nice improvement, but there's only so much you can do in that environment.

I say if good sound matters to you, then it's a very worthwhile option. Only you can make that distinction, so just go test drive 2 different GC's with & without and see if you feel that it is worth it.

I drove back to back cars for stereo, for V6 to V8 comparison, and for interior color light frost to black. And I did it on 3 different occasions just to be sure. I'm not bashful about kicking the tires real hard when I know I'm going to plunk down my cash. By the time I got my car, I was sure of what I wanted, and what I was getting. I'm 24 hours into the ownership, but I'm very happy so far.
