early 11s like mine have a power steering pump and the v6 4x4 was rated at 22 mpg highway. the late 11+ have electric power steering and are rated at 23 highway( v6 4x4)
my 11 the only issue has been the heated seat pads, all have been replaced under warranty)
some 12s had a recall for cyc head issues ( replaced under warranty)
13s are good.
14s changed some and added a new 8 speed which gave the v6 4x4 24mpg highway and better gear ratios.
11-13 wk2 v6 4x4 1st gear will do 53 mpg before redline
14 does about 35mph.
Laredo with dark roof rails will not have options, and 17's
then Laredo with e package will have chrome roof rails and stuff like the 12v plug in on the back of the arm rest and 17's
then Laredo with x package will have heated leather and touch screen nad 18's
but there was a Laredo with e package with 20's and nav
if you find one with oem hitch it will have a full size spare and self leveling rear shocks too, that is a nice feature when loading down the jeep.
limited get you standard qt2, 2nd row heated seat, memory front seat and h.i.ds but mandatory sunroof, and alot of chrome parts, with polished 18's(usually).
then the Laredo trail hawk is another animal.
i really like my 11 wk2, i built what i wanted, as little chrome as jeep would do. no sunroof, tow package heated leather seats and nav.
mine is a v6 4x4 with qt1 (no low range, but does great off road, where you want to take a 40k suv) laredo x. in the 14 models it would be a base limited
all in all there is alot of combinations.
