Sadly yet another review of a high-performance SUV getting a bad rating because of poor fuel economy. The truth is most people who buy it aren't too concerned about the price of fuel so why make that the focus? :mad: In fact, I get better mileage on it than I ever did with my Touareg V8! Plus it's SOO much more exciting to drive

I guess if it was made in England the reviewer would have like it more ;)

Living in the middle east you do not have to be concerned with the price of fuel, I a sure @$10+ per gallon the people in Europe are very concerned by fuel economy.
This car will not sell well in the EU for that reason alone. This is why the new X5/6M BMW is a diesel.

Diesel is more than prem gas here in California.

Point taken. However, I still maintain that if you can afford to drop $60k on a new car you can probably afford the gas for it. Also I highly doubt the EU is Jeep's target market for this car. Over here the thing is selling out all over the region..
