yep, certainly agree we were the focus group and the results are, or should be clear! I hope they actually take them into serious consideration and do the "right thing"
I was one of the guys saying they could get their full MSRP and think its a good thing in some regards, but I REALLY DO wish they would come back to the old "Jeep territory" as far as pricing goes and continue to appeal to the blue collar middle class people! Thats what Jeep always was and should remain and price is half that battle!
I think their trying to change their image slightly w/ the new SRT8 but I say screw trying to get into the high-performance luxury sector with this increase!! Although it would help them financially, I think it will do more DAMAGE than good in the general scheme as they will likely lose a lot of loyal Jeep enthusiasts. Just my .02 - like the old saying, why fix it if it aint broke??
