I'm not sure which options you're mentioning, but those are the "build and price" base prices for 4x4 versions of each vehicle.
If you read back a few posts, I don't think it is right and I wouldn't defend it I was simply stating a fact that the numbers are not comparable exactly. Yes they are the base vehicle price but I also mentioned the base vehicles don't have the same build in Canada, some don't even come with the same motor. The base price for a 4x4 summit in the U.S. comes with a V6 ($2795 upgrade to)V8 in the U.S.) and in Canada it comes in the BASE PRICE with the V8..... Only the SRT is Exactly the same.
All I am saying is that if people want to compare the differences it will take you a while to configure the vehicles the same so that you can compare the actual difference. When you come up with the final numbers the spread is closer, not saying it is appropriate or anything just that you are comparing oranges and tangerines right now. Yep they are the same family but the guts are different. Base price doesn't mean it has the same components except within the same country and that applies to most car manufacturers.
