A recently posted, very interesting video on why are Defenders so expensive in North America.

Because the rich are still willing to pay those high prices. The market only dictates the price that they were going to pay.

The YouTube video is pretty good I agree. Obviously reflective of the difficulties enthusiasts in the US face and the fear lots of new drivers have of manual transmissions.
