I stumbled across an article published by this company Gazette Dubai. In the article they call the 2015 Jeep Wrangler
.... "Overpriced, Noisy, and Unsafe"... When I first saw the headline, I was thinking maybe they got the vehicles mixed up and were dumping on Range Rover, but no, it appears they might be talking some smack about Jeeps. Hmmm, let's take a look at this. "Overpriced"
They compared a Blackhawk Edition for the 2015 Jeep Wrangler example. The least expensive base model Wrangler rounds out around $ 23,000. But yeah, if you want to add some accessories you don't probably don't need for 4-wheelin, (like heated seating and a few more silly creature comforts), you can drive the price up to $49,000. About half the price of a full option GMC Denali 4x4, or a Range Rover booked to the hilt with more doodads than the space shuttle. Sounds like the Jeep's a bargain to me. But let's not get away from what the Wrangler is. It's for off-roading
. It's for getting you where you want to go. If you're buying a Wrangler because it's priced like a last years Yugo EX model, you're not getting the whole Jeep thing. Turn in your T-shirt. Considering how the Wrangler is the NUMBER ONE off road vehicle on the planet, you really get more for your dollar than any other 4x4 can offer in capability. "Noisy"
Duh! Can you take the top off your Lincoln Town Car? Didn't think so. That's just one reason why Lincolns are quiet. They probably have 800 pounds of sound deadening material on them. A Wrangler? Take the top off
and get your Jeep wet. Inside and out. It was made to swim and enjoy a misty shower now and then. Not to mention catching some sun's rays and grabbing some Vitamin D. Who needs sound deadening? Then we couldn't hear the call of the wild out on the trails! Birds, bears and wolves. You can't enjoy the great outdoors if you can't hear it. "Unsafe"
Who helps Firemen and Police when disaster strikes? Jeeps do. Gotta a blizzard on the way and need to get unstuck? Call a Jeep. Need to get out in the woods for a rescue, or get some gear where it's needed? Time to call a Jeep. The only thing that's probably unsafe about a Jeep Wrangler is not having one when you need it the most! The Jeep will never be a sports car on the highway. Will it do 100mph and handle like a Corvette? Not a chance in hell. But if you want to pony up your 'vette and follow us to the slopes of the Rubicon Trail
, we'll keep an eye out for you.
