Strictly a "luxury" trim from a marketing perspective.
Jim,

Thank you, yes I do realise that the interior colour combination for the Summit is limited to Black and Brown, but with all of the comments from everyone and the lack of a clear direction from Chrysler as to what they are doing I think we Australians have to make do with the Overland, now there is also an interesting point with the US picture of the Overland. It has front towing hooks which I am told in Australia do not meet saftey rules, so I wonder what they are going to do with them? Maybe someone else could offer some comment.

Re: Why No Summit

The tow hooks are just bolted on so if they don't meet AU safety specifications, I would suspect that they would not be included. Car manufacturers do make regional variations to accomodate jurisdictional rules; including some things that might be optional in other areas, substituting things where there is a requirement to do so and, of course, eliminating some things that don't pass muster with the regulations in force.

And for the record, I'm a "Summit kinda guy", so if I were buying a MY14, I'd have to seriously consider the Overland just because I prefer lighter colored interiors. I'd be weighing that versus the extra features that make a Summit a Summit.

Re: Why No Summit

You don't get the Summit because you get the Holden HSV line, Ford Falcon, PLUS the FPV line AND utes. We'll trade you some Summits for some of those. I call a Maloo.
