For those who want a fast AWD vehicle that holds 4 comfortably, it is an alternative and has an MSRP of $73k. If you want to tow it is not an alternative for you.

By my estimate the MB CLS will have a similar cost of ownership over a 3yr period as the Jeep. 24 Hwy Mpg, 4 yr 50,000 mile warranty. 0-60 mph and 1/4 mile times that are faster than the Jeep.

I bought my WK SRT8 because I wanted a "sports car" type vehicle with AWD that I can drive year round, even in the snow.

The Jeep SRT8, CLS 4-matic, E550 4-matic, Audi A6/S6, MB 63 AMG, Nissan GTR (not as comfortable) all fit the profile. If SRT made a car with AWD, I would consider it as well.

As I have stated in other posts, cost of ownership is more important to me than initial cost. To others the "lease payment" might be more important.

I do not think the Jeep is worth the depreciation risks at $62k + TTL. Maybe it will hold it's value well, It is just not a financial risk I am willing to take. The initial test, would be to ask your dealer what a $0 down 12k/yr 36 month lease payment will be.
New GTR starts at $90,000 I think. But, check this out: http://editorial.autos.msn.com/blogs...5b6c#ic-anchor

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

The 2012 CLS without 4-matic (can't find that pricing for that yet considering its still not released) has a base of 71k (that's without 4matic because the 4matic model isn't released yet) and with some descent options is at 81k.

The E550 4-matic is more do-able, it runs 57k base (without the 4matic option), and around 72k with some good options.

As for the MB 63 AMG's, it all depends your basically only looking at the C63, because the E63 has a base of 88k, and they just go up from there.

The new S6 isn't released as of just yet, only the A6.

The Nissan GT-R indeed does have a base of 90k, the GT-R is blisteringly fast, however, the ugliness brings the cool factor of the speed back down.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

Maybe they are holding off since most orders are being cancelled.
