New user, new/used Grand Cherokee, maybe?

Hey gang! Hoping to get some more valuable advise and info than I have already found lurking around.
Put a few bucks down to hold a 2018 Grand Cherokee "Laredo" with the Upland package (Laredo badge delete) and few other upgrades.
Never had a Jeep, or of the family of brands. My mom does have a 93 thats still kicking!
Back to what I am just about set on buying unless I get bad vibes here.
Its been in service for 7 month, and has 3800 miles on it. It was the dealers loaner they would let other GC owners use while theirs was in service.
Looks super clean, no exterior damage, and no wear on the inside. Tires all look new and evenly worn. 3.6L V6
The window sticker did read 41k and some change, they are asking 32,857. For a 7 month old with 3800 miles, I like that someone else has taken the new car depreciation hit already and I get to reap most the rewards.
Cant post links just yet, but....
Black, black wheels, emblems are black with slight blue outline. Cloth interior gray, with some blue stitching on the leather accessories (steering wheel, shifter boot, etc.)
Let me know what you think about me pulling the plug.

If you are good with how it's equipped and how it drives, then go for it. I'll bet you could get them a bit lower but probably not much as it's priced right at KBB private party value. Trade value is 27,700-29,700. It's not a trade but the dealer has to depreciate it.

Invoice on an Upland was $36,658 and the Upland package was $3,649. MSRP would be really close to the $41K and change. That being said, there are a couple of new 2018 uplands in NC for around $36K

It is basically AWD as it doesn't have 4Lo (Quadra-trac I) but that should be pretty good on the highway.

Nailed the MSRP(window sticker) ! I did get it, and love the way it drives/rides! No buyers remorse here!
I did decide to get the Mopar extended coverage making it pretty much bumper to bumper for 8 years 85k Ive seen some repair history on older models. Just some piece of mind.
