Re: Trade 2012 for 2014? Who is going this route?

Its definitely a "it needs to grow on me" design. Although some people on here love it. It could be that they also waited for the 14' for its new features and have to embrace the refresh. The 11'-13' just had that wow... I want one. The "other" is considering a 14' because she hates her fusion she's had for 3 years (rear visibility issues). I almost traded my 12 for a 14' Overland but then had katzkin installed in my Laredo and now I love 12 even more. I'm going to hold til the total redesign. The "other" on the other hand she may be getting a limited or Overland... its her money!

I wish I could talk my "other" into buying a WK2, since we got it she hardly ever drives herself any where in her G6. LOL

Have you driven 2014 yet?

My 2012 isn't even a year old yet. I love the new interior of the MY14, but not too hot about the exterior. Give me that interior in my pre-refresh exterior design and I would be sold, even if it means losing money trading it in. I think I'll wait for the MY17, which should hopefully be out in 2016.

I'm the same way. If I didn't have the Katzkin I would probably strongly cinsider trading it in. However with the custom seats and the other upgrades I have done to my Laredo I have no desire to.

Then again I already told the wife once I pay off her 13 Patriot daddy is getting a new toy. I'm starting to eyeball the Challenger SRT8 For then LOL

No I haven't and I cannot see the need to actually. For me the thought of the 8speed and a complete refresh was not realized and I just do not see enough in the 2014 to make me trade in my 2012 at this point. But like others I am waiting for the CRD and will drive one of those when they start showing up at dealers.
