Re: 70,000 orders for Jeep Grand Cherokee
Those are nice numbers! I wonder how they compare to the first couple of months of WK sales -- does anyone have those? I'm wondering how much is the natural pent-up demand that happens between the time a new model is announced and it finally arrives. The announcement of a new model is basically a shot to the back of the head for the old one and I believe the WK2 was announced before last September.
Some of the sales obviously, are new buyers of the Jeep line. Clearly a LOT of these is what Jeep is going to need to be a success. I'm an example -- I've never owned a Jeep, but I was in the market, and this seems like a great vehicle (regardless of brand).
