Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

I agree. Wait till the MY14.
Mind you, by the time it is released in Oz... it may be 2016.

Personally I would wait for 8 months and order a MY2014, as it will have many nice features. I know I will be waiting, as I want the 8sp and the 7" dashboard screen, in addition to the 8.4" Head unit.

Interesting, I had a chat to my dealer, and he said he's happy to take orders now, but he will not be putting a price on it (not sure how that'll work). This will guarantee stock/allocation asap, but if the price is too high, then I will make a decision then.

EDIT: Chances are, by 2014, I will be keen for the new model, :P

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

Delaers cannot guarantee stock of the normal GC's, so they are just spinning you bullshit about the SRT8.
Without a price, you could be open to gouging and not be in a position to bargain. IF Jeep are really getting 1000 units, they will have a problem offloading all of them. I expect there will be several MY2012's going cheap later this year as people will find out the changes that the 2014 models will have. By the time the SRT8's are released the 2013 models will be out, so the 2012's will be the least wanted ones.
Keep the GC for another year and enjoy the significant changes the 2014 SRT8 will deliver.

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

I really cannot understand Jeep Aust's attitude for hanging onto these cars until August. Just does not make economic sense.

As much as I'd be open to price gouging, I could tell them to gtfo as well. I am interested to see what they'll give me for my GC. By me placing an order and being able to get my deposit back, I kinda secure one, but can also cancel at any time.

I wouldn't be surprised if the 2014 ones get a price bump as well as being in such high demand, that you wouldn't be able to get one until early 2015 (in Aus).

I placed my order for my 2011 overland in may, got it in Jan. (as an MY12, 2012 compliance).

If I place an order for an srt8 now, it'll be a refundable deposit (due to unknown pricing) as well as the fact that I'd be able to sell my overland as a 2012 with saddle interior.

Will find out on Friday when I go talk cash with my dealer. I'll keep ya posted.

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

Looks like I made the right decision in pulling out of the waiting game. A March built vehicle be bought for $90k in Sept. Not my idea of good money management (Idea based on cars being a good investment to start with. )

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

New 300C SRT8 price just launched - $66k!! Friggin BARGAIN. Even if the Jeep comes in at $75-80k, you have to wonder where the extra $10-5k is (older platform, older audio, older trans etc etc).

Word for the GC SRT is still production delays from the US (due to demand over there - Not Jeep Aust's fault) so Sept is latest advice. ALMOST considering jumping to 300 SRT now... but nah, love the Jeep

So there are a heap here already, for some reason Jeep are sitting on many 2012 models that are aging rapidly.
