Interesting discussion here! I just wrote a post in another thread about the fact that here in Canada, the Renegade sales might be positive with Sport or North editions but not the Trailhawk...My dealership just got back to me. For a Sport with air and auto and 4x4 its going to cost 29,285 plus tax. That is just crazy! NO THANKS! I hate to see what the Trailhawk would cost.
Sport model 4x2 starts at 19,995 CAD plus freight which is 1695 where l am, A/C is a ridiculous 1495 plus the 100 air tax. In my opinion Jeep has out priced themselves with this vehicle!
However now that I read the quote that you got, I think the poor little Jeep will not get a market chance at all! At least not here in Quebec, where, in addition to the Canadian high car prices and fees we have our lovely province taxes and fees...
And based on your dealer quote, I think there will be a big weird competition of value vs price between this Renegade and the Cherokee
Something is not right about the prices for Canada
