There's also the Wagoneer that's a lower grade and more affordable that may compete with the Tahoe and Expedition.

I saw a Grand Wagoneer in my dealer's showroom last week. That thing was about 7 feet tall and had a sticker of $112k. I was scared to touch it!

Yet people have no problem dropping $100K for a 5th wheel that depreciates like a rock the minute you pull it of the dealers lot. Then you get to take it back to the dealer to fix stuff and on and on.

Maybe. The point was that overwhelmingly reviews will state that in terms of luxury, the GW will stand up to any vehicle out there.

And, FWIW, data shows that most ultra high income individuals don't buy based on status symbol. The top two vehicles for those making over $200k/year are the F150 followed by the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The top 3 brands are Toyota, Honda, Ford.


Now that I do agree with - when's the last time we saw Gates and Bezos in a Rolls? Real success needs no symbol.

Status symbols cater to the shallower market of new money, think Vancouver high end real estate agents, start-up companies, etc.

I have zero doubt the GW is every bit as luxurious, just like a Track Hawk can hang with Euro's best hyper-SUVs. I just doubt they'll be run-away sales success due to their family background...

Bezos literally just flew to space in what looked like a giant c@ck. He's way beyond a Rolls.

He didn't do it to show his wealth, he did it because he could.

The difference between the uber-rich and just made it rich.

LWB model has now been spied. Speculation is that it will be available Q3. And come with the new I6 turbo. I know what I’m upgrading to later this year.
