Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I agree - I don't like it on my 2011 Overland. I tried to switch but didn't get too far with the dealer.

Re: Is there a heated steering wheel without wood?

I don't like how it feels and I don't like the look.

I didn't like it to begin with when I was looking (struck me as a little pretentious and Lexus like) but the other Overland package items made...

Re: Is there a heated steering wheel without wood?

I'll have to ping my dealer but anyone have an idea of cost/effort to swap with the wood one?

Re: White Gold popularity and a few new color questions

I don't know why but I can't stand light interiors. I had to search far and wide to find a Pearl Green with Black interior the way I wanted. Most had beige, I just don't understand the appeal.

Re: Does my Overland have the same napa leather as Summit

Have a question.... Is the napa leather as durable as the leather used in a Limited? e.g. dogs, kids, etc. I know in some brands the premium leather feels/looks better but more easily damaged.

Re: 2011 or 2012 Overland? Paint choice consideration

I agree, you would think there would be motivation by the NC dealer to get the car up here cheap. So we are $895 apart at this point.
