I also had an expectation that a Jeep (or Chrysler product in general) would be a lower price than an MB. Of course the reverse is true, when I bought my MB I was surprised the price wasn’t higher.
My comment wasn't about the Jeep, I agree that $60k for a Wrangler seems way too steep. It was about how we perceive value as audiophiles and our audio toys.

True and with that being said I do not see a 60k pair of speakers or a Jeep in my future !
