I've got to second that the "debadged" about the appeal?If I’m being honest the first thing I always think when I see a debadged car is. Ghetto. Sorry just being honest. I honestly hate that look. What exactly is the appeal? Does it make you feel like yours is a one off? Does it make you feel like no one will know what it really is and thus that makes it special? Seriously what is the appeal?
Ya when you trade a carin they really want it stock. Yes even down to the badges. They don’t want any potential buyer to think some young kid owned the car and abused it etc. Just one of the reasons.We had a Trailblazer SS that we sold to a Chevy dealership and the salesman we dealt with was pissed off that it didn't have SS badges on it. He said "How is anyone supposed to know it's an SS?". 😕
Does the Durango HC have other identifiable clues like a V does over the base models?The first thing I did when I got my Hellcat was take the Hellcat badges off. I require zero attention from both John Q Public and LEO's.
This is exactly what I think when I see a debadged Merc or BMW. These people put on AMG or M wheels and think they're fooling everyone....meanwhile, it's a base C-class or 330i.Next to the place I took my Dually for service, I saw a Sedan V and I talked to the lady who drives it. She remarked about it being supercharged...blah blah. When I said I had one, she got quiet and walked into the business. I looked in driver window and saw it wasn't a V steering wheel.
Most of debadged cars I have seen are base models posing as debadged more expensive models.
