2009 vs 2010
Iv been looking for a new car for awhile now. Wanting low miles and looking to spend around 25k. I mainly wanted the 5.7, upgraded radio, sunroof, and heated seats so I was looking at 09 limiteds. I just realized that the 2010s have the 5.7 in laredo's and found one in my price range. Is there any big differences between the two models that I should consider?

Between a laredo x (leather, sunroof, stereo) and a limited (same)?

Limiteds have lighter leather colors usually, woodish trim, chrome on the outside. Sometimes you get nav, backup cams, stuff like that on the limited. Its really preference at that point. i would go for the overland with the heated seats in back!!

My favorite combos:
Dark green 2010 hemi, qd2 laredo x
2008+ grey overland with brown leather
2010 grey limited S with the SRT8 seats
Any SRT8 anything ever!!!!

2011 has a 5.7 in a laredo, not 2010.

There're the Laredo HEMI for the 2010 year. Not many but are. Difference i believe it's no 2 tone interior, no chrome accessories for the exterior

I would opt for the 2010 WK with a Hemi no matter what the trim soley on the fact you get the VVT on that engine in the WK and only for that year. (Unless they also put it in the 2009, but I am not aware of this) The WK with the VVT 5.7 Hemi is around 356-360+HP and has more torque than the regular 5.7 Hemi. And since it moves pretty damn well in the 2011 and up WK2, I can only imagine the "sleeper" you would have in the WK as it is 300-400lbs lighter than the WK2:D
