Hellcat coming 7/2017

Don't know how accurate this is but whatever it's going to be called the hellcat powered jeep will be coming earlier than I expected according to this source.

Hellcat-Powered Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Is Coming in July of 2017

Re: Hellcat coming 7/2017

That is reasonably consistent with what Scott and Milous have been saying, While you might be able to order it in June or July of 17, would be surprised if they ship them that early.

Re: Hellcat coming 7/2017

yup. Coming in 2017 as a 2018 model is what we've been hearing.

Re: Hellcat coming 7/2017

In Australia, we have been allowed to put in a conditional order, as they are trying to gauge interest and maybe use it as proof that us Aussies will pay silly money for this beast. I have my order in with my local large dealership and live in hope that we see it down under before the end of April 2018, as this is when my lease it up. I am expecting to see a price of about $120k (US$90k) for this car.

Re: Hellcat coming 7/2017

-- NOTICE!! --

Anyone ordering one the second the ordering system opens....make this post and past Dodge/Jeep experiences be your official notice....do not expect to get your vehicle at "x" time. Put your order in and be prepared for a wait!! These won't be a priority at the plant, not many will be made, and they'll stack up a bunch of builds for QC before being shipped. Then throw in the fact big dealers will get them before smaller dealers regardless of order time.

In short, if you order, don't bitch, just sit back and wait for your turn. The ridiculous way FCA handles the rollout of new performance vehicles hasn't changed in years so don't think this vehicle will be any different

Re: Hellcat coming 7/2017

^ I'll wait. Watch the market. And buy one at invoice. I'll never pay MSRP for an American vehicle. Dealers/Manufacturers caught onto the invoice scam a long time ago, which is why they are oh so eager to hand them out to "just you". The best way to con people is to make them think they are in control.

Gee is that the voice of experience I hear?? :thumbs:

ADD: I will say I WAS SHOCKED we factory ordered my Wife's '16 Cherokee and it was delivered a month later, such a different experience than the SRT was.

Yeah, at "invoice" dealer still has 3% Holdback in minimum profit not counting all the other pockets of cash in a deal.

I wouldn't expect invoice being possible. Can't even get a Challenger or Charger at invoice now. They'll never saturate the new market with enough units of any Hellcat to bring prices that low.
