Anyways, I bet he is right. No dealer is going to get a brand new 2012 Jeep SRT8 in and give it away that day. No dealer. Sorry. Maybe if they get 10 but who is getting 10 right off that bat??

Where's Milous when you need him...
Keep them coming. Will you be here all night? If so, I'll make sure to try the Veal and tip my waitress graciously.


Hey, at least your dealer admits he's a scumbag (still wondering how he says each dealer is only getting 2, and his first two are going on the lot, but yours...the third....will go to you in the next shipment. I thought he just said each dealer was only getting 2???)

Jeep would rather build a unit that is going directly into a customers hand without sitting, rather than anchoring someone's showroom with a ridiculous mark-up just to show it off. That doesn't make Jeep look good at all. It's one of the main reasons the '04-'06 GTO turned out poor sales. Dealers destroyed the market with ridiculous mark-ups and holding the vehicles hostage. By Aug 2004 they had to give '04 GTOs away to make way for the upgraded '05s.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

Actually, the 1-2 a dealer first gets won't be for sale, they will be on the showroom floor, driven around, maybe some serious test drivers if they want to do that, etc.. Any customer can walk in the door and order one right then and there. Nothing is preventing that from happening. Chrysler has to have product placement in order to have product sales. Not everybody lives on the Internet like us, and reads about this stuff months before it comes out...

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

I don't know much about dealerships and what they do with the 2012 when they are shipped but it makes more sense to sell them to just keep them in a showroom. If someone sees a srt-8 fly bye them on the street that would create more excitement for them to go to the showroom then just seeing it in the showroom

I seriously hope you are joking......I thought your first post was just trying to get some people fired up until there was no "Guys, I am just kidding" follow-up.

A few points to consider, I am happy to take these statements back if proved wrong...

Dealers are in business to make money....Cars do not make money sitting in showrooms, dealers incur carrying costs / advertising costs, not to mention customers who might go elsewhere if their orders are sitting in the dealer showroom.

We have numerous members who have received confirmation of VIN's and even some have expected delivery dates which is in sharp contrast to any theory that new vehicles will be sitting in showrooms when they arrive. There may be a dealer with no customer orders who has priority and will get one they can put in a showroom, but if a dealer has a slot, their sold orders take priority over their stock.

Product Placement is achieved through all of those car magazines that are going to be allowed to print their reviews in the next few weeks.

No VON, no order.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

The Sales Manager told me his Chrysler ordering rep said not to order for dealer stock since allocation was so low. Any dealer orders were being pushed to Sold orders first.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

Well, I think probably what is going on here is the dealer is taking the first two for himself, and I had the next order so I will get 3 and my guy will get #4.

Probably because we didn't have a VON before maybe we got bumped and they wanted 2 for their dealer owners to cruise around in for a few days or what have you.

Anyways, he said there would only be 2 in the first shipment to that dealer on the 29th. So it's not that there are 2 different orders being done before-hand (i.e. dealer stock) it's just the dealer likely inputted all stock orders as 4EA sold so they would get them built and shipped.

Any updates on MSRP and Invoice pricing for the 2012 Jeep SRT8?

That's what I'm hearing as well.. Just not affiliate pricing...
