Re: Limited vs. Overland?

Keep in mind resale values on the trucks. I haven't looked into it personally, but the word around the forum is that the Overland is a more desirable vehicle to would-be used car buyers, meaning it will likely be easier to sell and get you at least some, if not all, of that upfront cost back.

Remember that buyers tend to discount packages so you won't get what you paid for out of those.

Re: Limited vs. Overland?

I don't know that used car buyers actually discount packages. From my time settling total loss claims, most people can't tell you what packages their cars have. What they do know (not everybody )are the major options. And that is what the typical used car buyer looks at.
Whatever trim level is the most popular as a new car, will typically be the most desirable in the used car market. Not because of the badge on the tailgate, but because it has the most desirable options.

In addition, according to the used car folks I dealt with to establish prices, as long as a vehicle has the basic options, the adjust their price based on the popularity of the color.

Bottom line when buying a new car, buy whatever makes you happy today, within your budget, and don't worry so much about what the next person will be looking for. IMHO

If thing if you buy off the lot most dealers order base and mid level Limiteds so not easy to find a loaded Limited in dealer inventory. Next jump up on lots is the base Overland.

Re: Limited vs. Overland?

I decided on an Overland in Granite with black interior, Tech Package and QDII. But after test driving, I decided on the V8

I was prepared to factory order, but when the fleet manager checked, there was one matching that was already in transit. I should have it in a couple days!

Thanks for all your comments.

Jeff

Yeah, why is it that there aren't many loaded Limiteds on the lot? I'm in Los Angeles and it seems like the few places I've gone don't even have any with the Advanced Tech package. Even finding ones with Lux II are in very small quantities.

Same here in NJ although I did see a lot of limited with Lux2 around here but generally that was about as high as options went. Guess they figure a person ordering a loaded limited would be better off in base overland.

For a "regular" shopper, they would only buy what is on the dealer lot. So dealers keep optioned out Limited's to a minimum that anyone who want to buy "extra" option, the dealer would push them up to the higher priced Overland, which they would end up selling. Marketing 101.

Re: Limited vs. Overland?

Exactly. Every dealership I went to, tried to push me into an Overland. Every loaded Limited (like mine) is a custom order, with all its trials and tribulations.

I was able to find limiteds with lux 2, 8.4 nav and 20" wheels in NJ but not with white and beige interior. Not many with off-road packages though. I didn't need or want it though. Street driven only. I ended up with 8.4 nav, sunroof and 20" wheels in order to get my color. Would have liked the lux2, buy it wasn't a deal breaker.

Overland was too expensive for me to lease the low residual. I wanted a limited lux II. There were only a few around and most them was customer orders I guess because they were in transit but when I call the dealer they told me it is sold. I only could find 2 of them in the state and this is in Detroit where the GCs are built, There is a dealer every 5-10 miles.

I asked the delaer why dont you order lux II`s, his response was customers want an overland isntead of lux II. I believe that translates we want customers to go for an overland


OP Congrats on your overland. You will enjoy the additional luxury on the overland for sure. Enjoy!
