Maybe if they change the last letter from "r" to "d" in "supercharger" I would get it. Just kidding, I like it but it will likely be too much for me and I can't imagine going from having bad gas mileage in the regular LX to even worse.

People in marketing get paid big bucks for smaller matters!

I agree that it would be more impressive as 'supercharged' rather than 'supercharger' and it saves a syllable, which is a "big deal" in marketing. How about just 'supercharge' ... let the owner add the 'r' or the 'd' when they brag about it!

The mileage must be awful. People will tell you that the Supercharger in itself doesn't make your mileage worse, but once you start stepping on it a bit it gets real bad.

Fuel prices are so low over there, this would be feasible if we all lived there!

I would definitely be stepping on it. Why else have it

I'd take the Supercharger(d) logo off, I'd rather keep the classy look and surprise people when I wanted to. A luxury SUV sleeper.

Check this out, prices are posted but unfortunately the OP dropped off. Guess he is busy terrorizing other trucks on the streets

Saw this in person recently. Very rare model and such going for the non-msrp equivalent of $250K USD.

Here it is side by side with the S model LX.

Black rims, side mirrors, gray rear light, +70hp .. trice the price, nothing exclusive here. This model is targeting our middle east market but with that price it won't sell ..

I think a possible diesel LX is a lot more interesting http://www.carscoops.com/2014/07/lex...-may-gain.html

SUVs (cargo space,all terrain etc.) are needed by some,including myself but yes that is an awesome powerful SEDAN.

High performance Jeep option
The best of both worlds, but the expense for performance would be astronomical.
I do love it though.
