Loaded '14 Limited vs. Overland

Hey guys,

I can't stay away. I sadly disposed of my '13 Overland Hemi because I was getting 10 mpg and that was unacceptable. However, this was my first Jeep and I am absolutely in love with them now. I am stuck driving a '13 Altima 3.5L V6 which is dreadfully boring. (Coming from a loaded Maxima before that I figured it would be comparable but it's not)

Anyway - I have been researching the '14's and was curious to know what feature I am missing if I load up a '14 Limited with all the options versus just selecting an Overland. On the Jeep website it looks like all the bells and whistles would be exactly the same. What am I missing that justifies the price difference?

Overland 4x4 - $46,195

Limited 4x4 - $37,795
+Luxury Group II - $4,000
+Uconnect 8.4NAX - $400
+20" Rims - $1,195
Total = $43,390

You get matching color trim panels around the wheels and lower front fascia. You also get power folding side mirrors with puddle lamps, different color options for the interior, and embroidered Overland logo in the front seats, and a wood steering wheel.

All in all, not a lot of extras that I felt like paying for. I did exactly what you're going for and got a loaded limited, but I also got the towing package.

Download a pdf of the brochure, scroll to the "back" and sort through the specs. I've found this is the only true way to figure out exactly what you might miss.

If you check the feature comparison at jeeps.com and wk2jeeps.com you will find things like:

Power fold away mirrors with approach lamps
Chrome tow hooks
Real open-pore wood bezels
Light Frost /Jeep Brown or Jeep Brown/Indigo Blue interiors
Steering wheel with memory and audio controls
Cargo net
Overland badge(s)

If a Limited is optioned up to the same level as Overland, then the price difference is about $1000. That basically buys a nicer interior trim and the body color exterior trim not available on Limited. Just more sizzle on the steak.

Personally, I did not need Nav, Air Suspension or 20" wheels, so then the price delta becomes significant.

seriously I couldn't justify the overland pricing for my needs but when I think about the headlights I get really saddened. I got the Limited with halo projectors.

Currently it seems like the only economic reason to go with an overland is if a certain option/feature you want is restricted to the overland. Even though listed as available, often Jeep won't build it for you (parts shortages). Early on the Overland package was actually a good value, but the pricing has changed over the years.

I was in a similar dilemma and ended up with a Limited(Lux Group II, Nav, 20's, Hemi). It was about 3K less than the Overland with Hemi I was looking at. If you lease then the residual is also better on the Limited. It was 3-4% higher when I bought in September.

Thanks for the great/quick responses. Definitely doesn't sound like anything major I would be missing out on. I like the Indigo interior but don't need that. I wish they still had the Saddle Brown interiors - I loved that in my Jeep.

Hmm a higher residual and cheaper price could definitely push towards a loaded Limited. Didn't know that there would be a difference in residual %. I don't recall there being one when I leased my '13 Overland, but I wasn't really thinking straight then either - lol blinded by wants and desires!

When I had my Jeep it was white. I bought black rims and wanted to change the roof to black as well. I had the panoramic sunroof and felt they should have just did the whole thing black. A lot of high end cars do that. I think some others on the board too. (or maybe another Jeep forum)

Quadralift is standard in the Overland, that is a significant difference. Nice to have, but challenging to repair correctly if you have an issue.

I was in the same spot just a week ago. I went with the loaded limited. It was cheaper and I got everything you can put on a limited. I don't regret it at all. 2 days after I got it I did a road trip to L.A. I got 20 mpg the whole way. I went off roading in it yesterday and it was simply amazing. I'm not sure what an overland could have done to improve my experiences.

I ordered from the factory and choose the Overland. To each his own. I have no regrets.
