fwdjeep is on a distinguished road
All 4x4 ,s are way tooooo much money
There is no real justification for any current car prices but less for 4x4 or for the Yanks SUV,s

Yes but it comes in one of the ORA groups on the Limited.

Re: When did a V6 Jeep Grand Cherokee become worth $50k?

So, I ordered my 2014 overland for $43k. Pretty big difference between 43k and 50k in my opinion.

Makes a big difference if you look at it on the lower scale. That's the difference between a 33k loaded Camry and a 40k Lexus ES350

I think the closest comparison to the GC is the Touareg. They are comfortably over 50k as loaded as a Summit.

Most people won't be getting 8.5% off MSRP. Did you add any options? That's a great price none the less. I'm not complaining about the price by any means, just discussing.

Back in '87 I think I paid around $15,000 for a Ford Bronco II. It was great for what it was. It pulled my 3000 pound boat and handled the beach sand very well.

Twenty six years later the Overland is about three times as much. It is a heck of a lot more vehicle no matter how you look at it. And in 26 years my income certainly more than tripled.

Putting things in perspective, the Jeep is damn cheap.

The beige looks white in pictures, but in reality looks darker than cream, more beige or light kaki in person, at least it does to me when I get in every day.

Here are some high def pics of the Limited Lux Frost beige interior: https://www.woodhouse.com/morePhotos.htm?Stock=D130884 (these pictures look a little darker than reality though).

No additional options, but it was actually $43,800...I should have written $44k....but the point remains.

Everyone here seems to be getting at least 1% below invoice with or without the various affiliate programs out there.

I personally got 2% below invoice, but I've seen as low as 4-5% below invoice here on the 2014's.

A lot of people are less than honest about stuff like that. "I only paid xxx" but it doesn't include trade in equity, a down payment, etc. Not speaking of anyone in general, just remember, don't remember everything that you read (especially on the internet).

Are new vehicles more expensive? Definitely. For what it is? Not really.

You've got to remember that these price increases come from the stuff people want. They want 8 speed transmissions that cost more and give marginal fuel economy increases. They want bigger touchscreens and LEDs. People ant these things, but they don't come free, so the price goes up.

When you sit in the Overland, compare it to vehicles most like it, it's a great value. It's quite a bit cheaper than a similarly equipped Touareg, ML, etc. I too compared it to mostly luxury makes all the way up to Range Rovers and felt the Jeep was the best of the group, without even factoring in price.

The WK2 is a remarkable value, and a remarkable vehicle. It's a shame they beat it with the ugly stick for 2014.

It's also no longer the best vehicle on the market. The new Range Rover is pure brilliance, but you spend quite a bit more for it - We're talking nearly $100k here.

The real values are the lightly used Overlands in the $30s now.

And why is the RR pure brilliance. Because it cost 100k or ...
50K WKII is better choice. At least for me.
