After a 7 week wait, I took delivery of my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland on Tuesday. I have put 300 miles on it so far, including a 100 mile trip on Wednesday (averaged 20 MPG). The HEMI provides plenty of power (and great acceleration in Sport Mode), and the 8-speed transmission puts that power down very well (except in eco-mode). Fuel economy is atrocious (15 MPG overall), but I did not buy the Jeep for fuel economy. I did some very light off-roading on Wednesday, and the Jeep did very well as expected. I finally took some decent pictures this morning in an empty parking lot near my house. They turned out OK, but are nothing special.

Standard Height:





ORII:






Some others (My friend just bought a 2013 Wrangler and wanted me to take pictures of his too):






I tried removing the front plate using Aperture and here is the result:



And finally, my first mod:


Future Mods (planned so far):
-Mopar Rock Rails
-Skid Plates
-GY Silent Armor tires (possibly with set 18" rims dedicated for off-roading)

If you want to see a picture of something not pictured here (night shots or interior, for example) don't hesitate to ask! However, I will be out of town until July 26 starting tomorrow, so unless I already have the picture, it will be a bit of a wait! :)

HELP! HOW DO I GET THE IMAGES TO SHOW UP INSTEAD OF THE LINKS?!?!?!

Nice color...looks black in the shade and gray in the sun.
Thanks! The first 5 pictures portray the color most accurately. My editing makes the color darker than it is in reality in some of the later photos.

That is a BEAUTIFUL Overland!

I've been debating trading in my 2012 Mineral Gray for a 2014 Granite.

Thanks! At one point I was debating between buying a 2013 Overland Summit in Mineral Grey with Saddle or my 2014 Overland in Granite with beige interior. I ended up liking the exterior of the 2014 better, and the 8 speed was too good to turn down. I really like my beige interior, but I wish saddle was still an option. I say go for the 2014 if you won't take too big of a loss on the trade-in. You won't look back.

Very nice. I have the same Jeep - minus the V8 :). The granite color is amazing.

How'd you keep the 20's with ORA2? That's the reason I opted out of getting that package and just added Quadra-Drive and took the skid plates off my '13
You can't, which is also why I did not order the ORA2 package. I got QDII and am adding skids myself. I just bought the trail rated badge off eBay and stuck it on.

I believe the caption was referring to the highest setting with the air suspension.
It was. I'll go back and make it clear that it is height related. Thanks guys!
