How long should you wait on your 2011 Overland (i'm referring to summit's here) before depreciation sets in? lets say it takes six months... a 2011 vehicle isn't worth as much as a 2012 vehicle. should you try and negotiate a better deal with the dealer?
I was thinking the same. But I bet Jeep will jack up the pricing for 2012 based on the huge demand and general inflation expected over the next couple years. So maybe a $45,000 Summit configuration today would be $48,000 configuration for a 2012. I don't expect any major design changes & hope the increase price will help offset taking delivery so late in the model year on a 2011.

Re: Summit Status

I have to think that since Jeep is having a hard time keeping up with demand for the higher priced JC's that 2012 will bring at least a modest price bump at least for the Overlands and hence the Overland Summits too.

Re: Summit Status

My salesperson told me they had a Blackberry Overland actually "built" with a 730N - might have been one of the few units that were supposed to dribble out before 3/1. Don't know when it will arrive at the dealer and I don't know if it was a sold order (probably) or dealer stock.

She also said that they have not built any Rugged Brown jeeps yet. So I'm hoping that the color doesn't cause too much of a delay. It would suck if they did a whole run of Summits in the other colors.

(OK, it wouldn't suck for some of you guys )

Re: Summit Status

There are rugged browns on long island according to the NEW inventory lists. As for the 730, make sure its not a 730N RER instead of the RHR. The dealers dont have a clue. There was a summit near me I wanted to go see and I asked if they had any with the 730 and the guy was quite rude with an attitude stating they don't make 730's anymore. I tried to explain that the RHR was coming out but he thought he knew more than me..... I love these salesman. They have 5 model cars to show as their main job in life and they cant even research them to have full knowledge of there vehicles being sold. If didn't do my job to my fullest ability I would be fired!

Update: Milous' vehicle tracking shows me going into D1 today! The estimated delivery date is set to 3/13. I don't know if that's realistic but it would be awesome.

Ordered on Jan 16th (a Saturday), although I suspect the dealer didn't put it into the system until the 18th as that was the next business day.

Dan - to be honest, I usually check your status on Milous' sheet (because 'D' comes before 'N') and figure that's what I will also see when I scroll down to my entry. Today I was shocked to have the scheduled date when you didn't have it as I thought you ordered a day or two before me.

We have a couple of differences (I have ORA II) - might just be the order they're planning to build. Hopefully we'll see something change on yours in a day or so.
