I owned a 2006 limited and this can't be further from the truth. The 05-10 are drasitcally different in looks, quality, feel, etc. The '14 on the other hand have major tech improvements, but the exterior is hardly noticeable by the avg person and frankly the LED / headlights along with softened front-end look so out of place, I can see that being changed back to a more agressive look in a couple years.

Re: What year is it? I Still Remember 2013!

I'm with ya. We bought a new '11 in December of 2011. So, our Jeep is 15 months old, but 3 model years old! I saw my first '14 close-up/walk around at Costco today. There's definitely no changes that would warrant a trade for me. I like the '14, but no better than ours. I'd actually miss a key feature of rear lift gate glass enough -- NOT to trade.

Re: What year is it? I Still Remember 2013!

Bought my '12 at the end of Jan last year so is now two years old. Have been kown to have cars new, old, and collectible, just a matter of a few decades.

Frankly have not seen anything in the '14s I'd be willing to give more than a few Benjamins for (would have bought a diesel if was available in '12, wasn't).

Have added lots of digital stuff, is what I do, think the unmodable '14 is a great step backwards (GM was taken to court a few years ago about that) but suspect it makes the bean counters happy.

Re: What year is it? I Still Remember 2013!

I agree 100% with the OP. I'm happy for all who ordered received or are waiting for their MY 14 however, there is no need to clog the main forum up with question upon question regarding this and that. That my friends is why they created sub-forums. Seems the mods here pic and choose what gets moved and what doesn't. Last time I looked there were 4 threads w/o going to Page 2 showing new MY 14 purchases.

Re: What year is it? I Still Remember 2013!

The '14s have a FANTASTIC interior but it doesn't make me want to ditch my '12 Overland. The exterior refresh isn't doing it for me AND it's smiling at you....

Re: What year is it? I Still Remember 2013!

I bought my 2011 overland new in aug 2011 for $38,400.

I can't seen to find a similar deal on the 2014s. I'd trade in if the price wasn't inflated.

If you wait until the end of the model year, like you did with the '11, you might come close.

Re: What year is it? I Still Remember 2013!

"Looks like a real jeep" is very subjective. I say MY 2014's "smile" looks like a real jeep...prove me wrong. See.

Everybody that buys a 2014 can just use the same thread. Everyone that buys one does not need to start a new thread.

Re: What year is it? I Still Remember 2013!

Here here! I agree with OP. I picked up a 2013 a month ago because I just wasn't impressed enough with the 2014's. Plus I got an awesome deal. And, yeah, the volume of MY14 posts of the same topics over and over again are getting to be deafening.
