New car sticker prices are why our newest TOAD is an 05 and the other a 99. We refuse to take on that debt for a newer version that really is no better than what we already have.
Our Jeep is better at offroading than any pavement princess model they sell now. Esp after the things I have done to it. And that new "Cherokee" ?? That is one VERY ugly rig and sure aint no Jeep. Nor are the Dodges in drag, Patriot, Renegade & Compass. When the redo the Wrangler there wont be a real Jeep left.
Our SAABaru is a wagon, all wheel drive and can carry more than any CRV, goes like a bat out of **** and drives like a sports car. Both have leather, heated seat and power everything.
Besides, other than the fact they can actually get it, there is no reason on earth for an US made PU to cost more than $30K Its an engine, trans, 2 axles and 2 boxes, one with a seat.
Now I'm not knockin the guy that goes in for the new stuff, more power to ya and someone has to keep those UAW folks working. But it won't work better than well cared for 10-15 year old stuff and new car smell comes in a can.
Now if your TOAD is going to be a new Lotus Exige S
........ thats a horse of another color.
