Overlands right now are shipping without Quadra-lift and the lower MSRP reflects that. Looked at a silver Overland 5.7 at my local dealer, has the select terrain but no Quadra-lift.

If you look in the accessories books that Milous put up it lists the Uconnect 730N as "the premium navigation system available" over the Garmin 430 system. For whatever that is worth.

Just got a response to this question from Chrysler customer Assistance that answered my question.

Quote:
f you are interested in either 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo X or
Limited models, the Quadra-Lift air suspension is only packaged with the
Off-Road Adventure Group II and the 5.7L V8 engine. The Off-Road
Adventure Group II is currently a late availability option. It is
scheduled to be available for factory order sometime this month and
production of models equipped with the Off-Road Adventure Group II will
begin sometime in September. I strongly advise staying posted with your
preferred Jeep dealership as they would be first informed when the
Off-Road Adventure Group II will be available to order.

The Off-Road Adventure Group II is also available for the 2011 Jeep
Grand Cherokee Overland 4x4 with the 5.7L V8 engine. Please be advised
that all Overland 4x4 must have the 5.7L V8 and the Off-Road Adventure
Group II equipped to meet Jeep's strenuous Trail-Rated certification.

Hmmmm, so the WK managed trail rated with just QDII, but they new WKII requires the addition of electronic air suspension to achieve it, no doubt to get some extra ground clearance.

I do question the accuracy of their response though.. Maybe i misread it, but it seems like the quadra lift will only be available with V8s? I thought in some of the review videos, it had them on the V6s as well.

Also, I think only WK2s with an off-road adventure pkg get a trail rated badge, quadra-lift or not.

Re: *****WK2*****2011-??? Grand Cherokee pricing and info thread discussion THREAD!!!

First post here, thanks for all the great info.

I've been going through numbers over and over based on my needs for Grand Cherokee #4 and seem to have come to the conclusion that once I add the nav into a limited, I would be foolish to not switch to the overland?

Based on latest prices (Jeep.com) including the $780 destination:
Limited: 39,600, but I have to add $750 for nav so: 40,350
Overland: 41,900

Both my dealer and jeep.com are now showing the hemi option as $1495 so thats irrelevant.

What I see is a $1,550 difference that gets me:
-The LTD's "Luxury" Package (Heated steering wheel, Nicer leather/interior finish, Vented Seats, Power liftgate)
-20inch wheels

Adding the Luxury to a LTD costs $1495, so right there the price is literally equal (ok, $5 cheaper) and you are getting the 20's for free. Another way to look at it is if you wanted to pay the $1095 for the 20's on the LTD, for an extra $455 you get the Luxury Package. Even crazier, is if you were to price out both the Luxury package AND 20's on the LTD you'd be paying $1,040 MORE for the Ltd.

Not to mention, none of this even factors in the "value" of the overland badging (depends on the person I suppose) or the potential for a higher resale value somewhere down the road.

So tell me, what am I missing???
