They probably are, and even still I think they outpriced or pushed the comfort zone of most a bit far. Personally I don't see the point of the base drivetrain with the terrible MPG to power ratio. I think they could have simplified manufacturing, by only offer the 2.5T DCT, offered the SEL (with the 2.5T) for ~27-28k, then make the SEL premium, 34k, and the Limited could still be 38-39k. Fewer trims, fewer manufacturing tool changes, higher chance the cars on the lot are they trim people want. Keeping their pricing closer together also increases chance of upsell. I love the SC, but if I can't get the 2.5T, I think the Maverick is the move. Both drivetrains of the Maverick are cheaper than the SC 2.5T, unless you get a Lariat Premium. Sure the Mav front in is hard on the eyes, but pricing is much more palpable.dang, we're pretty closed to the revealed prices. I wonder if Hyundai product/marketing folks are reading this thread and came up with those numbers🤣
They are still a bit north of what I hoped for on the Limited AWD. I think the jump from SEL to SEL premium should have been narrowed by about 1-1.5k. Makes me worry the Limited wont hold its value when the Base model is so much cheaper. Has me feeling nervous about dropping ~40k on a car.
