Just Ordered It
 
Well, just put in an order for a Brilliant Black 2012 Overland V6 4x4 with Adaptive Cruise and Black interior. Because I was ordering, I got a decent price, but not amazing - just the tread lightly 1% below invoice minus the $1000 rebate.

I feel a little sick to my stomach. 41k is a lot of money for a car. Hope it doesn't disappoint. Coming from a 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited. Can you say upgrade?

Couldn't make up my mind about the ORAII package so I just decided to go without and worry about it later. I do like the 20 inch rims. Hopefully it won't suck too bad in the snow.

Thanks to everyone for being so helpful.

You'll love it, I'm sure. A huge difference than your Hyundai.

How long will it take for you to get it? Why did you have to order vs get one traded from a dealer? Around here, northern Cali, the V6s are plentiful in every trim, especially of you don't want ORAII.

Here in the midwest there are very very few V6 Overlands. Add Black/Black with Adaptive Cruise and I think there was one 700 miles away. It just seemed easier to order it.

No idea how long it will take. Salesman said 6-8 weeks but I would be surprised. They haven't been making any V6 4x4 for a few weeks and although I heard they are starting back up in the next week or so, I'm sure there is quite a backlog.

It's a lot of money, but I'm so happy with my Overland. Congrats!

Heh, I'm in the minority here then. Just bought a Laredo with ORAI to get the QT-II. Last car was like 15k out the door, this one was 34. My head was swimming when we left the dealer and I didn't even have the car yet! (dealer trade).

Congrats. You'll be happy with the colour and upgrade from Santa fe. I only wish we got your prices over here. Laredos start at $50k the overland is $75k.

Newman you'll be happy with Laredo. And you're actually in the majority. I think Laredos make up 55% of production.

Nice purchase! You'll love it compared to your old car.

I know i'll be happy with it, I loved my Cherokee. Was time to upgrade though. Needs to hurry up and get here, and then SNOW so I can see how it does compared to the old one.
