Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

I've pulled out of the race. Cancelled my Srt8 today and got my deposit back. 2012 Toyota Sahara to be delivered in June. Would have loved a srt8 but really can't justify the wait now til Sept.

Our dealer has offered to give us the Overland at cost in the V8 to soften the blow. If we wanted the Overland we would have bought one and it's almost June which means dealers need to clear stock for end of financial year so can see right through them.
They also suggested to cancel the deal and just come buy an Srt when they have stock which makes me think that Chrysler are going to release the pricing higher than our agreement.

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

im hearing late Sept early Oct now, my other mate who was also waiting has given up and gone and ordered himself a HSV Clubsport Tourer...this is a joke. The information coming back from Jeep is poor, are they trying to create demand so they can charge a higher price?? not gonna work

It would not surprise me at all as they have a good product and will sell it for as much as the market will bear. Just look at what they did in the USA, charged 60k for a car everyone thought would be under 50!
I do not see anyone getting the 2013 model until mid to late sept. it will also make the initial 100 cars worth less as they will be the older spec. I would also expect the 2012/2013 models to also be worth much less than a 2014, due to the better gearbox and displays. I know that the newer models will always be better and worth more, but with such. Short model run of 2013, it will really kill the resale. I guess Jeep are hoping this info does not get out before they sell their allocation.

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

I would not hold my breath, as Jeep are not very good at sticking to a timeline.
You will most likely know when you will get your car, when the dealer says it has arrived on a truck at their dealership.

......Which will most probably be a few weeks after it did, and they have finished displaying it in their showroom.

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

Ok, i just laid down a deposit as well for one of these with the agreed terms that the price will not exceed $90k and Aug delivery the latest, so I am going to be staying close to this thread...
So will Australia really get 1000 of these cars?

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

1,000 cars? I very much doubt it. Certainly not MY12's
