Why no Hemi Limiteds for 2015

I am having my 2014 returned on lemon law and I cannot find a comparable Limited with a hemi for 2015. I have searched 250 out and nothing, Overlands a plenty but no Limited. Anyone know why?

It's a configurable option for the MY15 Limited on the jeep.com site, so perhaps it's just the luck of the draw for you in your not-so-immediate area.

Re: Why no Hemi Limiteds for 2015

When I purchased my 2014 Limited early November there were only two in my area with a V8 and 20" wheels. Most of the Hemis are Overland or Summits. I am curious to know why too.

Re: Why no Hemi Limiteds for 2015

My best guess: Economics.

HEMI is a few grand extra and if they would configure a high number of them into the Limiteds, those rides would be more expensive and therefore, harder to sell right from the start. And if you're not in the market for an Overland or a Summit, price might matter..

But that's just a guess..

Re: Why no Hemi Limiteds for 2015

I've been looking as well.

It's like "Big Foot" sighting nowadays.

Some reporter for Car and Driver says that Hemis make up only 15% of total sales.

I'm thinking that number might be shrinking.

Why no Hemi Limiteds for 2015

Making me glad to have a '14 Limited Hemi w/Lux2 in Billet Silver in my garage. Had to order it. No others anywhere that I know of.

We have a V6 '14 Laredo in Billet Silver at work.

Mine is a much better ride all around. Hemi doesn't have to work as hard and on a recent trip my Hemi matched the V6 for mpg while going same route doing same cruise controlled speed.

I agree. I ordered and my dealer beat another dealer who had a Black '14 Limited Hemi non Lux2 by $5000. Only disadvantage is waiting.
