Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk

I was just looking at wk2jeeps and the updates to the 2017 and thinking... Maybe next spring I will upgrade as the next gen looks to be ways out and mine will be 3 years old next spring

If the hellcat engine happens that maybe just became a "hell yeah"

I believe the release of the Jeep or any other sought after vehicle will be very different
While it was AN issue, it is far from the main problem. The problem is that FCA kept their order banks open until March when they already had enough orders by December to fill their projected model year. On top of that they built way too many dealer stock units instead of sold orders. They also misjudged the number of people who would order an A8 over a manual. Nearly 70% wanted an A8 and in early April it was announced there were no more A8 left the remainder of the model year except for those already scheduled for the remaining month build out so. I believe they estimated only 35-40% would want an A8. There were also part availability problems with other Hellcat pieces. So, they may reach their 8-9k build number but at least a third will be manual Challengers that original people who ordered never wanted or took... So they never truly met most orders. Dealers right now have A8 cars they changed to M6 when original buyers said they didn't want a manual, many of these cars still need buyers. While dealers are not totally relieved of fault in this, it is far from them and buyers placing multiple orders that is the problem here. There are multiple guys who had direct conversations with the highest you can get at Dodge about the issues and to this day, Dodge has not done what they said they would. You all think the 2012 Jeep SRT release here was crazy, that's nothing compared to the circus I've been in since last early December. I just received my $1k deposit back for my original Challenger order last week!

The Jeep will be no different. Nothing has changed on any new SRT releases since the 08 Challengers. It will be controlled builds, allocation based, the first chunk will sit in holding for months for QC and mass release. Also, if you analyze historical price structuring and increases, you'll easily be looking at $90k out the door after all is said and done, and that's without a markup. Watch the pricing on the current Hellcats for 2016.....

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk

YES! Prayers have been answered... Guessing MSRP will be right around 90K based on markup for hellcat challengers/chargers......

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk

I would bet on late/very late 2016...look at the current crop of Hellcats' delivery schedule. Couldn't even order Challengers until 9/9/2014.

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk

$90K seems a bit high.. considering the price of the 2014-15 models, adding a SC would only juice it up $10K? My guess is a shade over $80K.

No...they'll go for more. No reason to sell them for $80K when you easily can for $90K. There won't be that many of these made and exclusivity alone means it'll be $90K+.

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk

$85 to $89K is my less than $0.02 ... That way they can claim they have the fastest SUV on the market for less than $90

And then you have taxes...
