Dunno about your area, but with the emissions/mileage tightening up all the time, by the time the redesign is out, people might be oohing and aaahing over a 2.6SC engine.

Next year, Challenger and Charger Hellcat production has already been reprogrammed to produce DOUBLE what was planned. Hasn't been listed yet as they don't want to upset the apple cart now, but you can be damn sure there will be a price increase on them by FCA.

With that said, no way the Trackhawk Hellcat is only $8k more than the SRT. They have consistently raised the price on the SRT because they are still selling at the highest rate of any SRT. Considering the added cost of the Hellcat components, and more-so the popularity and sales of the Challenger/Charger Hellcats, the price will definitely be up there. If you price the model too close to the SRT then no one buys the SRT model.

I just hope it's reasonable haha. Either way I'm excited. Can't wait to see final pics and specs

I believe it will be 100k or more. In Jacksonville challengers are going for 80k. The one of chargers I pseen on ebay was going 97k.

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk

The MSRP has nothing to do with how much people are willing to pay dealers.
I got my hellcat for 70K which is MSRP as I ordered it. I waited 3 months. Other people paid as much as 25K "market adjustment fee".

And I believe that they will keep the regular "SRT 6.4" and will offer the hellcat as the top of the line engine. I'm sure 85 to 95 will be the MSRP for the hellcat. So the current SRT owners shouldn't loose value. Judging from the current charger challi, the hallo effect of the hellcat is good for the entire lineup. Of course some people will pay MSRP and some people will pay 20 to 30
K to get theirs first, so what......

Agreed 100%, if you look you can find a dealer who will get you one at sticker.

Since the Jeep is currently the best volume selling SRT (of all time too), they will likely do as with the rest of the products and keep a lower-end volume selling 'TrackHawk' and a higher-end halo 'TrackHawk Hellcat' or something similar. Will be interesting if the TrackHawk Hellcat turns out to be the biggest selling Hellcat as well.

I thought a 70k Jeep was a stretch. For sure 100k for a Jeep is a stretch. It's a nice engine in a hellcat but a jeep is more like a Camaro (plastic and hollow, presumably to keep weight down) inside rather than a Porsche or BMW. At what price point is the power not enough and comfort, quality, and convenience more important? I should also say at that price point you will get great power in any vehicle so it's not like jeep has the best deal for the money.

I would disagree, At even a 100K price point there is no other car with 707HP crank... the jeep will remain best deal for the money.

There is a big difference in the wk1 Jeeps and wk2 Jeeps. I had an 07 and now currently own a 12. The quality and technology has came a long way. I have more stuff than some vehicles that are out now.
