I picked up my new Summit last week and oh what a sweet baby she is!!! :D

I drove several times from Fort Lauderdale to Miami on I95 and with the Adaptive Cruise Control and kick ass sound system things could not have gone better. With the Adaptive Cruise just set it and forget it, it really does brake in time and accelerates when you change lanes.

And the sound system, I have never heard such a good surround sound system anywhere, in a car, in my house, at Sound Advice, this thing is powerful, crisp, clear, and bass for days.

I carry a powerchair and lift on the back and I do not even know it is there. Lower the suspension to enter and exit the Summit and for loading and unloading the powerchair, nothing could be easier and require less effort. Not to mention Jeep is reimbursing me for all the handicap adaptations of moving the lift from my old vehicle and relocating the reverse camera and rear bumper sensors to accommodate the lift being there up to $1,000.00, sweet.

Not to mention how good looking she is!!!!!!!!!

The tech in the Summit is totally awesome. I am still learning about all it is capable of.

In the meantime she is such a joy to drive I keep finding excuses to "do errands" so I can take her out for a spin!!! :lol:

It looks really great - concratulation!

Can you please post some pictures from the interior by night (would be cool to see the new interior lighting).

The point is, I have ordered exactly the same car like yours, unfortulately I just have to wait till August (I'm in Switzerland and mine will be a 3.0 CRD).

Thank you,


Gigi

Yes, I will try some night shots soon!

The wait is totally worth it. I had just test driven a 2013 when I found this site and all the info on the 2014 refresh. Boy am I glad I waited to get the new model with the 8 speed and updated electronics. The 8 speed made a huge difference in how the car accelerates and feels. You are gonna love it!

You will be glad you waited too!!!

The brown is IMHO so much better of a choice than black. It feels so elegant and right with the granite exterior. Where you might not normally think grey and brown would go together in this case they totally rock!
