Overland Summit







I just hope they add the trail rated version, don't like 20 in wheels

That interior is RIDICULOUS... Geebus!

Not to mention 20'' wheels don't provide enough sidewall for offroad'n.

Looks good I like it!! I personally think the 20" wheels on the WK2 look great. Anytime I see one with the smaller wheels it just looks goofy to me. Ofcourse living in the Chicago burbs there isn't a mountain and offroad trail between my house and work so I could careless about offroading. I think I like that interior to but would have to see it in person first.

The interior is very well done. People need to realize this vehicle is positioned to compete with luxury SUV's and is not a "Jeep" in the traditional sense of the word any more than a modern Land Rover is like the Land Rovers of 40 years ago.

I would understand the negativity if this were the only thing available but Jeep makes plenty of "trail rated" vehicles to satisfy your need to blaze a trail. A fully loaded WK2 is typically not that beast.

I'm not really talking about "blazing" a trail. I'm talking about 18" wheels for more options of an offroad tire due to myself driving often in the snow & elements and the occasional dirt road. I've owned a ZJ & currently own a WJ, I'm not changing the vehicle, Jeep needs to have a trail rated option on this one. If they named it the Overland Street, I wouldn't have said anything.

I completely agree with this statement!! It seems a lot of diehard Jeep guys and offroaders think Jeeps should be nothing more than a box on wheels with solid axles lol. I understand a lot of people like offroading, but they also have to understand that the Grand Cherokee is their top of the line vehicle that competes with other high end vehicles such as Land Rovers, BMW X5's etc etc. However as the OP requested im sure that if you really wanted a special edition car that if Jeep couldnt get those smaller wheels for you, im sure they would be pretty easy to come by if you wanted a new or like new set of OEM 18" wheels.

I really like this summit edition. I cant tell if its just from weird light reflections or what but it appears this one has a unique color like a very dark brown. I really like it a lot!! I wonder how much this one would cost?

is that the same interior dark wood trim you get in the 2011 Laredo? looks a lot like it.

are those wheels chromed? they look a lot shinier than the painted 20's or maybe its just the picture.

i dont see any tow hooks so it's likely to not have the O.R. Group II or QDII right?

i am not a fan of that color leather. they need to paint all that black plastic lower stuff body color come on Jeep!

^That's part of the cruise control assist feature or whatever it's called... where it'll slow down as needed for cars in front of you.

Yup it's for the adaptive cruise control. If its also for the advance warning and cross path detection system as well I'm not sure. Either way though it's all one package.

Two of those pics look like the paint is brown. I don't recall seeing brown as an color selection.
