Re: Overland vs. Limited w/ Nav, Luxury, Tow & Off road group: What are the differenc

IF you plan to gte off road pack on the overland the difference is ~3k with limited withou 20". If you want the 20"s than the difference decreases ~1.5k.

I really liked the overland with indigo blue but the residuals were very low on Overland so I leased a Limited with Lux II and decided not to get ORA II last minute.. Now I am very happy with my decision. I am paying much less than an overland. And I started to beige interior more than the indigo blue which was the only thing made me want an Overland. By the way Overland outside trims are painted to body color. Limited looks more rugged, Overland looks more luxurious IMO.

Ovrland has the puddle lights under the mirrors, comes with a trunk net.

At the end you will happy with both cars. I think it is just personal taste more than functonality.

Re: Overland vs. Limited w/ Nav, Luxury, Tow & Off road group: What are the differenc

I was facing the same question. So I took my wife along to do back to back test drives with a Limited and an Overland. And the answer is: Overland. While I like the 18" wheels better, the grill is better looking on the Overland and my wife loves the interior of the Overland.

That's wrong - I have the same wood trim (just not on the steering wheel) on my Limited as an Overland with black interior. From P. 1 of the 2014 Ordering Information and Pricing thread, 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing:

Limited Interior

BLACK (with Miknasa Walnut wood trim)
BLACK/LT FROST BEIGE (with Nador Brown Walnut wood trim)

Overland interior

BLACK (with Nador Brown Walnut wood trim)
BROWN/LT.FROST (with Brown Zebrano open-pore wood trim)
INDIGO BLUE/BROWN (with Brown Zebrano open-pore wood trim)

Re: Overland vs. Limited w/ Nav, Luxury, Tow & Off road group: What are the differenc

Then thats a difference between the 2011-2013 and the 2014 I was unaware of, real wood on the Limited.

As for residuals, the research I've done shows the residuals are the same on the Overland and the Limited...

I leased in July and Overland was 1% less than Limited in Chrysler Capital and I think 2% less at Ally. They may have adjusted in August

Re: Overland vs. Limited w/ Nav, Luxury, Tow & Off road group: What are the differenc

I have a Limited with all those upgrades and if I were to do it again I would still get a Limited with the upgrades.

I disagree with the fact that people buy used cars according to the badge. Yeah Overland commands more vs a Limited by name alone but when you'll look at 5 year old car that has the same equipment, the Overland's extra 3000 $ when new price will NOT be reflected in the sale of the old vehicle. Daily I see lots of Overlands without the Trail Rated Badge and without the ACC sensor. By that measure, my Limited is "more" car than those Overland vehicles. Consumers are conscious about options and features these days and this is what dictates the price. Not the badge.

You are giving up puddle lights, electrically folding mirrors, leather dashboard and wood steering wheel, painted wheel arches and a larger choice of colors. I hated the leather dashboard anyways and the plastic will take sunlight fade better than leather. Seats are the same, vented and all, leather and all, just without the overland logo. The steering wheel is slippery with wood, I hated it, but I love the meaty, grippy leather one I have, heated as well. The rest of the toys are the same with a caveat. The Overland straight of the showroom will not have the full off road package - you will be missing the skid plates (I believe the heavy duty brakes, cooling and alternator - are standard on the Overland whereas you get them as an upgrade with the ORA-2 on the Limited). The choice of colors for me was black on black so the ABS plastic fender arches blend right in. And they will have fewer ugly dings and scratches to worry about. Same HID lights and all. I was not happy about the sunroof - I did not wanted it: more things to leak, break and I never use it. And it adds weight which decreases fuel economy.

I am happy with my optioned out Limited. And technically, due to inflation, the $3000 now will be less when you sell the car. Though realistically you will never recover that 3000 $ difference when you sell it, regardless. Good luck.

Don't get me wrong, the painted overland trim is nice, but possibly more prone to chips, although the black plastic could fade in time.
I prefer the 18" too, it's a Utility Vehicle not a Sports Car. I'd rather more rubber than RIM.

The "Old" 18" were ugly (5 wide Spokes), I like the new ones (more of a pain to clean though). If the old 5 Spoke still existed I would have got the 20" just for that reason.

I also didn't want a Sunroof. Something else to break, leak, squeak or whistle.

Re: Overland vs. Limited w/ Nav, Luxury, Tow & Off road group: What are the differenc

My inclination, at this time, is to trade for MY15. If details are similar to now I would get Limited (rather than Overland) with Lux. pkg. and maybe hitch receiver. I just cannot see spending money on things that make no difference such as leather dash and real or not wood trim. Make the trim out of whatever you want. It always looks good. And I do not like the trim on the top of the steering wheel... feels like plastic. As far as future trade in is concerned, I think 4 or 5 year old QL in the used car market has a value that is yet to be determined, either positive or negative.

Whether or not those things "make no difference" depends on the user. To me and to others those things make a big difference. I think they are well worth $1,500 or even $3,000 because they transform the feel of the vehicle inside.

Kudos to Jeep for not forcing you into trim choices for options as much as most carmakers do.

As to whether a loaded Limited or a base Overland will have more value at trade time, that's not really up for debate...that's kind of a fact. The way vehicles are evaluated allows for a certain amount of value for a model, and options add very little value. An Overland will be worth a certain number and a Limited will be worth a certain number. A loaded Limited will be worth very little more than a base Limited, while an Overland will always be evaluated as an Overland. Good luck explaining all your options to a dealer or a private party and how it "basically is an Overland". They're going to look at you and say "I can get an a overland for that". It is what it is.

I'm seeing it right now with my 2011. Cost wise it was very close to a Limited...but Limiteds are worth more than my Laredo X, which is simply a "Laredo with options"

Are you one of those who see purchasing an automobile as an investment?

Re: Overland vs. Limited w/ Nav, Luxury, Tow & Off road group: What are the differenc

Absolutely not, but I do look at ways to reduce the overall cost of a vehicle purchase and ownership. If I'm going to buy a vehicle between $46k-$49k, and I want all that equipment I'm absolutely going to take the potential better resale into account when deciding between a Limited and Overland. I'm not someone who keeps cars a long time.

To me, aside from wanting any of the features of the Overland, if I'm buying in this situation the Overland is the better buy for this fact. If I'm leasing and the residuals are better on the Limited, then the loaded Limited is a better choice. If the residuals are the same then the difference is VERY small, in which case I would get the Overland because I want the stuff.

My point is, the Overland will resale for more than a loaded Limited. That's just the way it works. If you don't care...fine...of if you are owning it so long it doesn't matter...fine...but don't fool yourself by saying this wont be the case. It always is.

I am the kind of buyer who drives my ride until the wheels fall off. I liked the 4X4 Ltd and added the moonroof, 20"wheels and the 8.4 A/N radio which added 3K to the ride but I have all the features I want and am happy. Since I won't be towing (use my F350 diesel dually for that chore) I selected the V6 over the Hemi to save on fuel cost. The quadra tracII Transmission when in auto is so smooth, I can not feel it going through the gears and the sand setting and paddle mode keeps me from getting stuck in the sand on my acreage and access road. My last GC a 2001 Ltd lasted trouble free for 12 years and 175,000 miles before swollowing a valve and eating a piston and was a good ride so much that when I bought my new ride, I looked but came back to Jeep.
