Not technically, as a consumer our opinion is our dollars, and if we don't give them our dollars than what are they in business for right I see what you're getting at however.As soon as it rolls off the assembly line and gets that little J - E - E - P badge put on it, it's a Jeep.
I suppose if you disagree, you could either not buy one or you could apply for Marchionne or Manley's job and change it. Because until you're in charge of an international multi-million dollar company, your individual opinion doesn't really matter. They'll make whatever they think will make them some money, and SOME of us will even buy it.
But to be less frank about it, yeah. I think it will fit nicely into the Jeep lineup (otherwise why the heck would I even be registered on this forum).
You're absolutely right. If all Jeep made was Wranglers, they wouldn't sell any more than they do now. They would just lose all the money from people that wanted to purchase the other vehicles they have to offer.Not technically, as a consumer our opinion is our dollars, and if we don't give them our dollars than what are they in business for right I see what you're getting at however.
When we had the similar thread before I made the point to one of our traditionalist friends that Jeep had to build the renegade because all those traditionalists who don't buy new Jeeps weren't paying the bills! >
So if everyone started making off-roaders, no jeeps would be jeeps?Of course it's not. If so, then the 3-wheeled baby stroller I bought my son at Babies-R-Us is a real Jeep. Slapping a name tag on a vehicle doesn't make it a Jeep. Being able to transport humans to terrains and places that regular vehicles cannot is what makes a vehicle a Jeep.
