After much deliberation I am going to put the SRT order on hold.....

Until we get some answers on when, if, and how much the Trackhawk will materialize......

I figure, what's another 6 months? Afterall I am number 2 on the list at my Jeep dealership.......

Any thoughts if the TH will be in high demand? I am guessing yes.....

In other words, any chance to get it below MSRP, whatever that amounts to be?
I know that I can order a 2017 SRT below invoice.....not so sure on the TH.

I know this is all speculation, but your thoughts would be appreciated.......

Re: After much deliberation I am going to put the SRT order on hold.....

While others know a lot more about this than I, logic says its not a matter of whether you can buy one over or under sticker, only a question of how much over sticker.

From these boards there seems to be lots of interest in the Hellcat Jeep, myself included. The boards indicate that there is a platform change for the 19MY, meaning '18 is the last year for the WK2. The board also indicates that '18 is the last year of the V8, 6.2 included.

If all the above is true, the Hellcat Jeep is a only a one year phenomenon. That says to me, large dealer markup and speculators driving the price up. It also says I won't be participating.

Re: After much deliberation I am going to put the SRT order on hold.....

Ron, great assessment of the subject. If that is the case I will order the '17MY SRT which I believe will be the last year of the 6.4l, if I am not mistaken.
BTW, where could I find more info. on the upcoming years model changes?

The "Trackhawk" option package name has been deleted for the 2017 model year 6.4L SRT, evidently it was causing too much confusion over the upcoming 2018 6.2L Trackhawk vehicle.

Milous, any idea on when more info on the TH/HC will be out?
How many are they planning to build?
Pricing?

Thank you Sir!

Not shocking! I was confused myself! A good move.
