2014 GC Limited vs GC Summit

Hi Guys,
I'm finally looking to buy a 2014 Grand Cherokee after waiting for all of these 'electrical problems' to get worked out.

My options are down to two:

The 2014 Grand Cherokee Limited (V6 Gas) with the following add ons. Total MSRP w/ options $47280
-Luxury Group II $4000
-UConnect 8.4 w/Nav $400
-Advanced Tech Group $1995
-Off-Road Adventure II $1795

or

The 2014 Grand Cherokee Summit (V6 Gas) with no add ons. Total MSRP $52190

So far I've found the following things the Summit trim has that the Limited w/ options doesn't.
-Power Folding Mirrors
-17 Speaker Green Edge System
-Lights under the seats (seems unnecessary)
-20" wheels (I think I like the 18"s on the limited better anyway)
-Front Park Assist

So my question to everyone here is, what else am I missing if I get the Limited trim with all of the above options over the Summit? So far, I think I can go without the above differences for the $5000 price differential. Thanks for your input!

I don't like the grey lower panels on the Limited versus the body colored panels on the Overland or the Summit. Cloth wrapped A pillars on the Summit (you asked). Bi-zenon headlamps. Power folding mirrors. 20" wheels.

I bought the Overland because it had all the features I wanted.

Thanks for the extra info, Roy. I'm assuming the A pillars on the limited are just plastic then. And now that you mention the lower panels, I do think I like the body colored better. Decisions decisions...btw, any problems with your Overland? I'm hearing all sorts of horror stories with the '14 GCs.

Gives you skid plates on the Limited. Summit doesnt have them. Only important if you are going off road.

18" wheels and tires better for going off road.

if you need front park assist get off the roads and stay home. You shouldnt be driving

Well, I am still waiting for all the electrical problems to get worked out on my 24 year old YJ. There is about as much chance as that happening as there is for Obamacare to offer decent health coverage.

off road? how far can those tires air down? I just do not see enough side wall on any of those.

I would bet that 99.8% of the people buying these wont see much "off road" maybe a beach or some easy dirt roads . If I ever see one on even AZ3.5 rated trails I let you know. I will be able to follow the plastic bits that it leaves behind. some paint on a rock. the tears of the owner. Its like hunting for Unicorns.

They are nice for a SUV among the many SUV's. . As for gremlins, each year adds more complexity. complexity by nature is more likely to suffer Murphy's law.

+1. Well said. If you want a SUV, buy a SUV. If you want to off road then buy a willys.

We were looking at Overlands and ended up buying a 2014 Limited with Luxury II, Tow Group, NAV option for Uconnect 8.4 and 20" wheels / tires (same wheels as equipped on Overland). It's a lot of car for $45K+ sticker / $41K+ purchase price.
