If you were to give up your GC today, what would you get?

I find myself thinking about this questions a lot. If I had to or had the ability to get out of my jeep GC today, what would I purchase next?

There are some pretty amazing looking cars/SUV's out there and even better ones coming down the pipeline (check out the Lexus NX). However I havent fallen in love with any thing that I have been seeing on the road (within a realistic price range).

Curious to hear what other options everyone else might be considering.

Re: If you were to give up your GC today, what would you get?

I'm on my fifth Grand Cherokee so it's highly likely I would get yet another Grand Cherokee if I were to give this one up.

Hubs works at Lexus so I've had several of those along side my Grands but would never give up my Grand Cherokees.

When I bought my 2014 Summit, the Range Rover Sport was second on my list.

Re: If you were to give up your GC today, what would you get?

Excellent question - I think about this a lot; not because I dislike my Jeep, but because I like cars. Right now I'm enamored of the '15 GMC Yukon Denali; BMW X5 xDrive50i; Mercedes GL550; Audit Q7; and, last but not least, Jeep GC SRT.

My answer to which car I like best is the same as Carroll Shelby's - "the next one".

I would purchase a hearse, as I'd be needing it.

Re: If you were to give up your GC today, what would you get?

I'd probably go with an S6 or some type of full sized performance sedan. I like the SRT, but most SUV's don't really appeal to me I'm more of a sport sedan guy.

IT depends on what you want or need
As for me and needing a good tow vehicle and 4 x 4 vehicle i will go for a Toyota Land-cruiser even though they are much dearer here in Australia

As for things like BMW x5 Lexas or such i would never consider these in Australia

Re: If you were to give up your GC today, what would you get?

Probably a Porsche Cayenne GTS, loaded to the gills and way overpriced. But I can dream.

If really given the opportunity to have ~$100K though, it'd be very hard to turn down the WK2 SRT and just do all the things I want on the Cayenne myself and probably save about $10K +.

I'm just really impressed with all the technology and precision the Porsche has. Including their willingness to please the customer with all the mods from the factory as options.

With 100K to blow, I'd probably see what it would take to stuff one of those aftermarket Hemis into a regular Overland, by someone like Hennessey.

Re: If you were to give up your GC today, what would you get?

I'm a Jeep lover through and through, but if I HAD to choose other than Jeep, I'd have to go with the Range Rover Sport.....Those things are pretty dang sharp, I have to say. But that being said; my dream car/cars would be the Jeep Rubicon or Overland. I like a 50/50 ratio of on road/off road capability....More off road with the Rubicon of course. It's a tough choice. For now, it's all about what I can afford. Some cars these days are almost as much as homes, and personally, I'd rather own the driveway.....If you know what I mean...lol

Re: If you were to give up your GC today, what would you get?

Sorry to throw in a bit of *dream car* wishes into this, as it seems like it wasn't intended to be so.

I just constantly drool over the SRT and imagine what I'd do with that kind of spending money and how it relates to other competitors.
