Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

I walked into my dealer today 20 min before they closed and cancelled my order. They had 3 outstanding orders. While I was there the dealer called the other jeep order holders. By the time they closed all three were cancelled. Chrysler really thought this one out.

After seeing this pricing I plan to order the new CLS 4matic for myself for my next vehicle. Is it more $ initially, yes. Is it faster, yes. Is it better than the Jeep . My only needs are, seats 4, AWD and will beat 98+% of cars in performance.
Sorry bro. I work in finance and as soon as I saw the word greed posted, I thought of Wall Street. I'm obsessed with that movie. LOL Sorry

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

Well I'm sure Chrysler has it in mind that if the people cancelling their orders don't buy it, they know others will, it will eventually sell regardless. If its not to you, its to the next guy/girl.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

Although this is too much for this vehicle I'm not suprised. If chrysler only wants to sell 3000 a year this may be a good price point. If the price was close to an overland the demand would be that of an overland. Because these have many parts that are different than the other models their costs to build it I'm sure are much higher because of the low volume of those parts. They don't need a lot of customers to sell 3K a year.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

Got my POC from my dealer yeaterday. Black Srt8, dual pane sunroof, high performance audio, tow group IV, Luxury Group II MSRP 60,750, FWP 57,676, HB, 1,799, FFP, 57,099 and EP 54,867.
So for my original deal with the dealer I pay 58,176. I am going to call to see if I can do better since the price has skyrocketed from the original estimate.

Kint;
Don't you have 2 SRT8's on order? Were you only taking one, which ever came in first?

Quickone,

They were ordered at the same time. I was planning on getting two, but now it's either an SRT 8 or a Summit.
