The Overland Edition Jeep is awesome!! I would go as far as to compare it to a Landrover LR4, and it would be better than that. Now if only they would brig the diesel version of it to the states, I would be more happy with it.

I was going to say that ^^ last night on my phone, but it wouldn't cooperate with me.

My friend had a 2010 300C, and the dash was of the same quality as my parents 09 Impala.. The seats weren't bad, but the rest of the materials felt cheap. The Ram wasn't as bad, but still not great. The Grand Cherokee Overland was nice. I sat in a CTS (I think) last year, and it was very uncomfortable, and cheap. I find most newer vehicles to be very cheap and uncomfortable, even compared to my 2002 Century.. The only newer cars that I drove that I liked were a 2006 Buick Lucerne, and a 2007 Ford Fusion. The Fusion surprised me..it was very nice and comfortable, and the dash wasn't too bad. I really liked the analog clock in the middle of the dash.

Go sit in a new 2011-2012 300C or SRT8....completely different quality...thank god...I can't even stand the hard plastic boxy interior of anything chrysler LX based 2010 on down(Challenger is the exception). And as far as the Ram goes...the Laramie Longhorn is the only interior I would settle for if I spent any amount of major money on a truck....but anyways, this is getting really off topic...lol

I wouldn't mind if GM finally brings the 4.5 Duramax out for mid-size trucks and SUVs, but who knows when that will happen.

Yeah, they've been talking off and on about that for years...wished they would make up their mind someday lol. Dodge, is starting rumors like that too. I'd take a diesel Tahoe any day myself lol.

I would love a 4.5 tahoe or pickup, i could trade my monte in too and DD the truck. i saw an article in a diesel mag that had three prototype trucks one each from each ford, dodge and chevy, that had the 1/2 tons. that was at least 5 yrs ago i think. i would imagine if they were going to make them they would have.
