Shampoo, you only get the top model right??
Yes, but I don't want a Gladiator. If they made a normal one with a big engine, I'd get that.

$200K for that is also ridiculous. People have been doing hemi swaps on Jeeps for years for not a ton of money. Granted this one is one of them Hennesey limited editions so yeah I get the price tag.

Almost decided on it, but not yet. Gonna try to schedule a longer test drive next time.

Might also explore some pre-owned/CPO performance SUVs too and see what's out there.

Plenty of room. It is shorter than my current Accord and the same width. Only taller.

You sure? Look at this thing we did a few weeks back.


Did we do a better job than DeMuro?

Maybe cool to look at. Pretty hopeless if you had to drive one. :-)

There was a while they were mating their big four cylinder to a Chrysler 3 speed TorqueFlite. Those were at least reliable, but, still...very uncomfortable and kind of klutzy.

Don't forget you've got FIAT at the top of all of this.

They don't really give a damn about you, the individual purchaser.

Be careful.

FIAT-Chrysler-Renault.

I cannot imagine a bigger cluster.

DeMuro's voice ever going to stop squeaking?

How long can puberty go on, really?

Yeah but you ain't getting anywhere in a hurry unless you're back in 1947.
