Re: Saw the new WK2 SRT8
While I've been a huge proponent of both the vehicle and service provided thus far as an early adopter of the WK2 Overland, the price for that vehicle was $42k. Pretty much a fanboy on this one.
Chryco made its own bed by raising the bar so high on the WK2 SRT8. It doesn't help that this is a performance SUV gas guzzler in what looks to be a really crappy economy.
It is completely fair for any customer to expect service, reliability, performance, features, and fit & finish that is consistent with a $60K automobile. Clearly, the jury is still out on this given Jeep's history and comparable SRT8's, old and new. Just because it's a limited production vehicle doesn't mean the customer will be any less demanding.
Jeep has created great expectations. I'm rooting for them to live up it, and like many here will lust after this vehicle even if it doesn't end up in my garage.
