Test drive and walk around of a '14 Max Steel V8 Overland with Indigo interior
 
I was hoping this was Bill_de's but realized it wasn't because it has 20's. I was impressed by how ballsy the Hemi was when not even hammering it. The mpg display was still in the 17's so I must not have been doing it right! If they really do that good even while messing around I'll buy one. So far my V6 is getting 18.2 mpg since the first mile was put on it and ill see 24 mpg on the highway while using cruise. These trucks are so SMOOTH in every aspect. Jeep has outdone themselves this go around and will be getting plenty of recognition soon I'm sure. Looking back I wished I would have bought a Limited with the off-road group that includes QL while equipped with the 5.7 Hemi. It just puts a smile on your face while watching the gears go by and seeing the RPMs stay in their sweet spot. Originally I ordered the Indigo interior and changed my mind for several reasons. It is a beautiful collaboration of colors but I don't think it's for everyone who uses it as a daily driver. I'm sure whoever gets it will love it for the simple fact it is stunning in real light. After a week of driving all the new controls and features become rather simple to use. Never was I a fan of the cheap fan controls in the 11-13's. Now they feel very solid and have an actual feel to them while adjusting the desired settings, especially the controls for the vents.

Everything from the fit and finish, transmission, powerplant, styling, and infotainment are finally world class in my opinion. I'm proud to drive a Jeep!

I find it VERY attractive. We should all be happy they were smart enough to give several choices.

Man, I agree. The brown is night but I think the blue is too light of a blue. Glad I can't get that color.

You're welcome. Some of the Australian fellas threatened me if I didn't give them their Jeep fix. Next up.. CRD and the almighty SRT.

We appreciate the info, as Jeep AU are living in denial and have not released anything useful.
We are not even sure if they realise that the '14 has been released, I guess they also do not think we have Internet access.

Just curious, why do you say you wished you would have bought a Limited with the off-road group that includes QL while equipped with the 5.7 Hemi?
