Re: Overland looks better than Summit for 2014?

I think y'all are right. I don't see them blurring the lines between what has clearly been set up as two pinnacle lines in the GC lineup. I think the fully optioned Overland is the top of the line for the person who wants bells and whistles plus trail rated off road capability. The Summit is the top of the line for those who want capability, but are more interested in non-off road refinements. To allow an a la carte configuration would cost more $$ than simply saying: here are your choices, you can't have it all, but you can get most of what you want depending on what's important to you.

For me, having just been stuck in mud two weekends ago, front tow hooks are ESSENTIAL, and having to remove a section of bumper each time I want to tow will be a minor annoyance. Leaning heavily towards the fully optioned Overland!

Re: Overland looks better than Summit for 2014?

I like the aggressive looks on the Overland but the Summit fits me better - it is more me.

Do not care for either wheel too much but definitely like the styling of the Summit better. Wouldn't mind it being toned down a little.

Re: Overland looks better than Summit for 2014?

I picked the Summit because I am a stereo freak and the HK simply rocks!

If you are also the proud owner of a 2014 JGC Summit 5.7l Hemi I am arranging a special production run of a Corsa Cat-Back exhaust system for it. You cannot buy it publicly. I make zippo off this. I am just reaching out because we are very close to the minimum to make the run and I am so very happy with mine. Interested? Go here to read all about it and PM me if you are, but please act as soon as you can....

Re: Overland looks better than Summit for 2014?

I liked the Summit better than the Overland because I liked the treatment it gave the outside. However my SO could not stomach the interior color of the seats so went with the Overland. Either is a fantastic vehicle...

If (when) I pull the trigger on the new Jeep I'll go for the overland. Like the features on the Summit, mainly headlamp washers and stereo, but can't get over all of the chrome. Probably go white with blue interior. Really like the browns on the summit but almost an identical match to my TL and the lighter colors match my Subaru. Need to change things up.

Re: Overland looks better than Summit for 2014?

I really think the 2014 Overland is best looking GC trim level inside and out (and I don't think it's close).

I just wish jeep would make the upgraded stereo an option on the overland. Best of both worlds.

Re: Overland looks better than Summit for 2014?

I don't think so,especially with the altitude out now, it looks like a overland with black*overland wheels*. The summit however is the only one that has the exclusive exterior looks. It is the top of the line model for a reason. You don't see them using an overland on all the GC commercials..

For sure, best of both worlds but those corp types have got people like me pegged. I definitely wanted the Overland color choices in and out but I don't offroad (except curbs and suburban snow banks) and I just had to have the HK sound system once I heard it. Once I played with it and then went back to the Overland stereo my ears were just too "polluted" with the HK's dynamic range and these days I just can't get into messing with a stereo re-wire.

Definitely could do without the plastic chrome bling too.

Jeep definitely draws us in with the options and color combos across the entire JGC model spectrum don't they?

My only prob with the altitude is I think they lack a few options I really want.

I should've bought a summit and had the dealer swap the wheels out with an overland. I'm sure I could've removed the extra chrome if I decided it was too much. To me, that's the perfect jeep.

I have a friend who completely disagrees with me, he'd add more chrome. To each his own.

My understanding is the altitudes can't get back up camera or the v8. To me that's a dealbreaker.

They do look cool tho.

The perks of the Summit are on the inside. Nicer leather, HK stereo system, suede like headliner are the major ones.

I'm ordering the Overland because it looks better on the outside and inside. I'm not a fan of the brown interior. I've had black interiors on all of my vehicles, and it's time for something new...so I ordered the indigo interior. It has the dark feeling of a black interior, but its nice and unique.
Exactly the post I would have written had I been here first! I have a white overland with indigo interior on order.
