Re: Limited vs Overland

The Luxury II package gets you the heated steering wheel, ventilated front
seats and the power liftgate.

I was only looking for ventilated seats, but I'm happy with all of them on my Limited.

Re: Limited vs Overland

The Overland is SO MUCH NICER than a Limited. And if you build up a Limited to have the features of a stock Overland it actually costs more. If you can afford it, get the Overland.

Re: Limited vs Overland

I was originally going to get a Laredo X but bumped up to a Limited (mainly to have the features I have come to think are standard like rain sensing wipers on my '05 Limited) I just couldn't see upgrading model years yet downgrading features. That being said, I sometimes wish I would have bumped up just a little more to the Overland model after reading a bit more about it and some of the additional options available. (quadra-lift, power lift gate, vented seats, ETC) It really does seem like a better value for your money.

One thing that does bother me about the Limited is the vertical grille because the lower one has the cross-hatch overland pattern. Whoever made that style choice should be fired. They should match (either both vertical or both cross-hatch) IMHO

That being said, anyone that has the base overland grille that they are looking to get rid of, PM me. I just might be interested!

Re: Limited vs Overland

Some people may prefer not having QL or the power lift gate which can be bothersome, regardless of available lifetime warranty...I'm a stubborn old fart who sits firmly in that camp. I actually preferred a Laredo for the folding passenger seat but wanted leather, rear seat heaters, HIDs, side mirror dimming (and comes with pano roof...but I didn't need that). Limited makes a good transition of key features between Laredo-X and Overland, IMHO.

A Limited provided what I expected/wanted and left off the key things I did not want: QL and power lift gate. Overland absolutely gives you more goodies at a better price than a Limited optioned up...but that's if you want those goodies. Personally, variable suspension lifts and power lift gates annoy me enough so much that I'm glad there was a Limited option.

I will join the "Old Fart Club" here. I was looking at the X but liked the interior of the Limited much better along with the 18 inch chrome wheels. It just hit my sweet spot. My wife hates power lift gates and the suspension just seems like a gimmick. My lifetime warranty would cover problems but why ask for problems for something you don't want or need.

The only cosmetic difference from a Laredo X and a limited on the interior is the darker colored wood trim of the X. Same seats, leather, dash, trim, carpet, ... Apart from heated rear seats that is.

Re: Limited vs Overland

Yeah I'm in the old keep it simple stupid club. I simply wanted a V8, QT II, and the limited slip rear.. and a little riding comfort, nothing special nothing fancy. But these options are now available only on the Overland (order restrictions perhaps), with all its extra bells and whistles... these GC are getting soft

Re: Limited vs Overland

X vs limited : The polished wheels, sunroof, Quadra-Trac 2 vs 1 and I believe navigation. Plus little bit of chrome and a few other things ( automatic wipers???). The seat color was lighter. I found the wood trim and seat color much more to my liking.

Re: Limited vs Overland

I had 2008 Overland which I just returned off a lease. I was considering a Limited, but I went back to the Overland because it had everything I wanted as Standard and it was less than a Limited with everything added to it. I did not get the Adaptive Cruise Control because I thought that it was not useful and it would just be more of a hassle. The main difference between them is that Saddle interior, which I got, is only available on the Overland. Also, only available on the Overland, are cooling front seats. Lastly, the 20 inch wheels are standard on the Overland and optional on the Limited. The only thing I did downgrade was the engine. My 08 had the Hemi and I loved the engine, but with gas the way it is, it was a lot to fill up 3-4 times a week. The new V6 is powerful, but a lot more fuel efficient than the V8. I now get more mpg and fill up less.

Re: Limited vs Overland

Yes, it's all about what you really want and how the packages price out. For me, I wanted the 4x4, Hemi, Nav, QTII, Tow group IV, Pano sunroof, Rain sensitive wipers (a South Florida must), and HID headlamps = Limited. I was a little concerned about the chrome accents, but on the Dark Charcoal it looks outstanding. (In my humblingest and biased of opinions)

Love the pano sunroof down here. Sunny days are great, nights are even better, and lightning storms are a real show. You feel like one of those loony tornado chasers.

The Overland is the Mac Daddy, but I already had everything I wanted in the Limited, so I didn't want to pay the extra amount.
