I received the same mail so things are on track like they said. It will be interesting if they actually get the cars over here by the end of this year. My guess is add 3 months to the dates and I won't be disappointed, February 24 will be a good month.
I really think that they should offer the US some aggressive (or competitive) pricing so they get more into circulation as that is when the US off-road market will take notice and make a run on these great 4x4's. It all about visibility here as its a completely new brand and product and every jeep owner I know has never even heard of them. When I go to Moab next spring, that will get others to see it in the flesh and orders will increase. I hope they don't over price them right at the start. Get more market share first, then adjust.
