I totally agree.



I Don't like the Summit's wheels, lack of tow hooks in front, or exhaust tips.

Re: Overland looks better than Summit for 2014?

If I did go with the Summit I'd get the Overland wheels fitted. Is that wrong?

However the the main reason why I favour the Overland over the Summit are the interior colours. That "bronze" look on the plastic on the Summit's console and dash just doesn't do it for me.

But to be fair, I've only seen photos of the Summit and not seen it in the flesh. I'll have to actually sit in one before making a decision.

OH!, and can't get Light Frost (Beige) leather in Summit. I had that in my WJ Limited and LOVED it.

I thought the bronze interior was on overland as well...

last year I bought a summit (april), still had the silver dash interior, the overland I looked at with black interior had the bronze dash, did they swap colors?

my Limited has the bronze dash trim also, it was made Feb 2014. From what I've read, they switched from silver sometime mid 2013

Re: Overland looks better than Summit for 2014?

Both my old 2014 Limited and my current 2014 Overland has the "bronze" interior trim.

Re: Overland looks better than Summit for 2014?

I like that the Summit has unique exterior styling. If I'm spending well over $50,000 on Summit, I'd like it to look different than a $30,000 Laredo. I think the Summit trim level was created to appeal to a different demographic. It's targeting conquest buyers coming from premium brands such as Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, and Infiniti. The Overland trim level competes with mainstream manufacturers such as Chevrolet, Ford, Honda, Toyota, et al. This shows in the availability of the Off-Road Adventure II Group on the Overland but not on the Summit.

Yes, more research reveals that you can get bronze or silver in Summit & Overland. As mentioned, I really have to go and actually see the interiors and not just rely on the internet.

Apologies to those if I've confused the issue here

Re: Overland looks better than Summit for 2014?

I traded in an Audi a6 for my Overland, had a BMW 530 prior to that, and a Merc E350 before that. So the Summit doesn't appeal to all prior Euro owners! I originally did go to see the Summit But after seeing both in person, the Overland appealed to me much more. As others have already stated, Summit has much more chrome, didn't like the Summit wheels and exhaust tips. I did like the saddle brown interior and SRT-like fog lights on the summit, but that was all. Both are priced very Similar...an Overland with the advanced tech had a difference of $2500 or so, so it basically comes down to personal choice. Take a look at both side by side and go with the trim that you're drawn too most.

Hmm that's weird I have only seen the bronze in Summits. I sure hope the Overland I'm about to order comes with the silver (frost beige interior)

I agree with the standouts of the Summit compared to a Laredo, but I don't think you're giving the Overland enough credit. Overlands and Summits both stand out over a Laredo in my opinion...but agreed...maybe not enough for some.

I would argue that the Laredo/Limited competes with the other brands you mentioned though, and the Overland/Summits are marketed towards practically the same demographic...with few differences between the two.

I can't imagine anyone ever putting a Honda Pilot and an Overland head to head and think they're remotely in the same "Class". Same with a 4runner, non-Denali Acadia and Ford Explorer.

I would like to see a summit with overland wheels. I myself have contemplated getting a summit and retrofitting the overland wheels, just not sure how it would look.

The H/K system as an option on the overland would be my preferred way to get exactly what I want. Summit exterior has too much chrome. I can handle most of it. But the rear end with the chrome strip at the bottom with those goofy tailpipes just don't do it for me.
