I would speculate that this is why the Wrangler 4xe is coming sooner rather than later. Is there a concrete date other than "December"?
Kinda, and its the best selling SRT (or at least it was) but it'll never be a low down muscle car. There is a reason they have "spring specials" on muscle and send any left overs to the auction in September as they fill the lot with SUV's. You truly need one of each. BUT a smal and very stylish C series RWD/AWD 392 SUV might fill the gap if its quick, depends how they market it.Wouldn't the Grand Cherokee 392 really be a killer then? Especially the next gen version.
Problem is, every one of these, they need to sell two Pacifica Hybrids...
The problem is we only have the top level trim pricing for 4xe and it's way high. Of course so will be the 6.4.Actually if you look at hp and tq that makes the 4xe the in between model with much better fuel economy to boot.
I agree, Launch Editions tend to be pricy. Hopefully base, Sahara and Rubicon 4xe models will be less then either Launch Edition or 392. It will be interesting to see what the premium will be for the lesser trims.The problem is we only have the tp level trim pricing for 4xe and it's way high. Of course so will be the 6.4.
Someday 4xe pricing might be more reasonable on a Sport S, hopefully.
I suspect your correct on depending on federal tax credit, but from my understanding a base 4xe is coming soon based on Sport S.Here are the prices today, all 4 door Wranglers, no options added:
Sahara: $39,505 base, $48,240 4xe
Rubicon: $42,635 base, $51940 4xe.
I suppose they are relying on the customer getting the federal tax credit to take away some of that sting, but ouch.
