Re: Overland vs. Limited

First of all, thanks for all the replies. This seems like a great community. I previously owned a couple of GC's and really like the looks of the new one.

I have seen the Overland in person and the logo's really jumped out at me. Just don't like those and the piping compared to the plain leather of a limited. No disrespect to those who have them - a personal preference thing.

I will compare the cost of 4x4 V8 Limited with OAII and Luxury II vs. Overland.

I did a better search and it looks like others have grappled with the Overland logos and piping and wood also. I am including those links below for reference for others comparing the Limited with the Overland:

Why would anyone buy the Limited -
Why would anyone buy the Limited?


Limited - Overland - My Marriage -
Limited - Overland - My Marriage

Regarding the air suspension, I am really looking forward to that also. I had a 2004 Touareg with air suspension and really liked the ability to increase ride height offroad, to lower for entry/exit, and to lower for highway driving. Sounds like Quadra-Lift has similar settings. So nice to cruise someplace on the highway in comfort and pull off the road and be able to traverse decent terrain.

Thanks again.

How about reliability of QL(air suspension)

I wish they wouldn't make it a separate forum. People who come here to learn about new vehicle need to get complete picture.

That's true...it's not new technology. But everyone knows that air suspensions have a history of being problematic on other vehicles like Land Rovers. Hopefully the Jeep system will be much less problematic, but at this point only time will tell because Jeep doesn't have a history with air suspension systems like the new Quadra Lift.

With that being the God Damn cigarette lighter has been a problem on Land Rovers, they are one of the most unreliable vehicles in the world.

I know...they are horrible when it come to reliability. They've been on the bottom of the list for as long as I can remember....and that's a shame because they are really nice vehicles if you like capable SUVs.

Land Rovers are just problematic to begin with. My mom had two and both were always in the shop. Yes more than half of the time it was for the Air Suspension. But for the last two years she has been driving a GL550(which has air suspension and the WK2 shares it's platform and tech with) and hasn't had any problems whatsoever.

Re: Overland vs. Limited

I elected to go with a Limited (Luxury Grp II, Offroad II, Hemi) and got just what I wanted without the piping or steering wheel that I did not care for. Since I was able to buy off the lot, my dealer was seriously motivated and made me an offer well below invoice. Guess I am not too worried about resale at the moment. It's a great Jeep!

My brother works for Mercedes Benz (North American Corporate Headquarters in New Jersey) and he drives nothing but new company vehicles. In fact, he doesn't even own a car of his own, he just drives company cars. And believe me when I tell you that MB still has some very serious issues with the air suspension in the GL. In fact, the GL also has transmission issues too.

Re: Overland vs. Limited

The decision would be based solely on the air-suspension. You either want it or not. The rest of the stuff except for the seat trim, leather dash pad and steering wheel are available on the Limited. Otherwise, the Overland is otherwise the best choice.

Re: Overland vs. Limited

Question: can you get a Overland without the air suspension? I know in the beginning that's how they were made (without air suspension). But how about now?

Nope, comes standard now from what I understand.
