Ooooo boy!!! Here goes! I'll report back on excitement v. disappointment soon.Do I need to say anything more?
That's what I was hoping for as well. I'm sure in a few months with dealer incentives they'll be in that range, but right now it just seems way overpriced....Bout a grand difference between the Latitude I configured and the Trailhawk... something's not right here. Either way $30k is laughable right now... I was figuring $25k would get me 4wd, power sunroof panels and heated seats.
Good way to look at it. The best way to view it's pricing is in comparison to the competition and what you can get for a similar price.in the low end side it doesn't look too bad, if you take the base sport, add AC, and the automatic 9 speed transmission you are in the 21k and change range, which is comparable with the Chevy Trax
(being an urban driver with basic needs and limited budget this is the range I'm looking for)
now lets see the MPG's and the prices/MPG's of other competitors before I make a decision
I have sat in the L and the Renegade and the Renegade does have more room. It more square, up right, and boxy that why.If I wanted a hitch, a full size spare, 9 speaker system, GPS, a tonneau cover, auto tranny, 40/20/40 rear seat then I would need to get a 4X4 Latitude which would sticker at $28,795.00 call it 29 grand. And that is for a car with a tiny trunk and barely visible rear leg room. I have a Fiat 500L and you should see how much rear leg room that car has and how large my trunk is. Sorry to the folks who think it's an adequate sized trunk or adequate rear leg room. I beg to differ.
This car is built off of the same platform as my 500L so why would it have such a small trunk and so little rear leg room?
The only reason I would get the rear 40/20/40 seat is so back seat passengers would have drink holders. It's a mystery to me why the front center console does not have built in drink holders for the back seat passengers.
The car looks good, but to have to plunk down 29 grand for a car with so little interior trunk and rear leg room is kinda nuts. Jeep needs to bring the price way down. People are not buying a much larger Cherokee for that kind of money. They are getting a tiny car for a mega price. I will not buy one until the price drops down to reality. And don't forget that Americans want a glass sunroof.
From what I've heard for you guys up in Canada adding 4x4 on the sport also adds the power and A/C group and some other stuff. Try doing a trim vs trim comparison of the sport 4x2 and 4x4, that should show you what all is being added for your money.Has anyone used the build and price feature on the Canadian site (jeep.ca)? I was pricing a 1.4L 4x4 in sport and north models. When I change the north model from FWD to 4x4, the price goes up by $1500. When I make the same change on the sport model, the price goes up by $6100. Does the sport model have the most expensive 4x4 system ever made, or is it automatically changing something else without telling me?
