it really depends on the locations. According to an enterprise I rented from a couple weeks ago...the grand cherokee is their most popular SUV. They had to get one from another location for me.

the place in sanford florida normally have jeeps, the last two times i fly into that airport i got jeeps. :) So seeing as i have an overland at home, i was hoping they would have the new WK2, i know it will probably be the base model, still its newer than mine. And i have specifically asked for a Jeep. :D fingers crossed.

Last two visits to Minneapolis I rented a full size car from National and they gave me a new JGC. Really nice to be in a familiar ride.

I rented from National at the Tampa Airport. Reserved a Grand Cherokee or similar, got a brand new Durango with 15 miles on it.

The new Duragno looks a bit dog to me, correct me if I am wrong, isnt the Jeep GC classed as a middle class income car in the US? If its not there, you def need money to run it here seeing as a gallon costs about $9.

I remember when i had my last rental, being a black JGC it used to get attention all the time.

I spent a week in Vegas recently. Looked into renting a new JGC from Enterprise, but they wanted $120. per day.

I think a $35-45k vehicle is out of the middle income range. Thats just my opinion.

Really? thought middle income was anything about 90k etc. Maybe UK, US have different ideas of middle income.

We rented a Jeep GC from Budget in SLC back in February. The drive up from SLC to Park City was a good test of the V6 and being able to rent the Jeep helped in our decision to buy one.

That's a relative statement. Your poor in NYC, LA, Chi-Town or the like with that income range. Your middle in the suburbs of those cities. Your wealthy in 'other' areas. Your the King in the area's that are remote.

Very true. I know people who pay $40,000+ in Cook County property taxes each year. Chicago/Cook County/IL is a brutally expensive place to live if you want to live comfortably and have some toys.
