I don't mean to offend here, but that figure is so off base, its an injustice to the internet. $1000 PER MONTH? You're totally off base with that #. This isn't a BMW or a Porsche that lose that kind of money. A limited production high quality SRT8 will lose 4 - 5 k TOPS.

CASE AND POINT ABOUT DEPRECIATION!!!!! Can you imagine losing 40k in one year depreciation on that BMW?

The Jeep SRT8 is obnoxious now? We wont miss you being an owner. Everyone who hated the first version said the same exact words. And that's why we LOVE it!

Way to make it personal. You love it because others say disparaging things about it, huh? Well OK then. Don't want to be part of your group. I prefer to purchase a vehicle for the vehicle itself and not by outside influences. I know, you'll come in here and say how much you love the vehicle. But it's too late, you've already been called out on your true reasoning for wanting one.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

If the Jeep srt-8 does not sell well because the price is way out of wack, which it is, then you are absolutely risking a lot of depreciation because the dealers will be forced to cut the price to move left over srt-8s sitting on the lot at the end of the year.

Just like a lot of people won't pay 40k + for a kia or hyundai, most people aren't going to pay 60k + for a jeep. It's just not going to happen. Maybe Jeep should also consider an R/T version priced around the the same or below an overland that is more sporty than the overland and made more for the pavement than the off road. I was hoping the base srt-8 would be that vehicle but obviously i was mistaken.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

Everyone is upset about price and running for the hills? I can see why for sure, but I think the true Jeep SRT guys (they know who they are) will find an economical way into one of these sooner or later A smart and savvy guy who really wanted one of these would simply take advantage of the huge stock that dealers will have and either bring them down into the mid $50k area OR just get a lightly used very low miles one for even less. There are always ways if you ask me. If you feel like you NEED a brand new one for some odd egotistical reason than thats fine, you just have to resort to option A. If they dont sell like hot-cakes (which is what everyone seems to be saying) then dealers will have no choice but to come down in price just to get rid of them. Sure it wont happen right away, it may take until mid/end of 2012 for the 2012s to come down but thats the way it has to be. They're not just going to liquidate these things overnight of course haha.

If anything I could see an intervention from Jeep in cutting production wayy back for later years just so they do not lose a ton of $ on this thing. I cannot see MSRP going down simply due to the fact that their costs for this are what they are and Im sure they've calculated this price based on similar margins as the WK SRT. All in all, this first model year if produced in the claimed 3k unit range, then Id think by the beginning of the 2013 sales that the new 2012 SRT;s sitting on lots will certainly be going for more like $52-$54k fully loaded, Ill bet some $ on it Other alternatives are Jeep selling some off to some used dealerships in which case they will be offered at even lower prices! Beyond that I could see employee pricing being brought back so heavy discounts come into play. Many different options but all will likely result in big discounts for the end consumer.

Now the 2013s will of course still be sitting for their $60k loaded values still for awhile unless Jeep can make some sort of significant change in their supply chain and/or design of this thing stat (cant see that haha) Otherwise yeah, its going to take some serious searching around of dealer inventories, some good negotiating skills and probably some good credit. Sure some 2012s will sell at sticker, thats a given, they'd probably even sell a few at $75k just cause people "can". You know how that goes But of the 3000+ 2012's produced and distributed to dealers in the US, how many do you think will actually "sell" in this range? Id bet 60%-70% is fair so what's gonna happen to that other 30%-40%? Well thats where the savvy guy comes in and scoops up a deal!

The first gen SRTs didnt have to deal with this cause those things actually did go like hotcakes. I think the lower price combined with the wow factor of a badass street Jeep had everyone sold. This one just doesn't have it like that

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

People talking about how they are still buying keep giving out fairy tale prices of $54/55k. I've been running them today for myself. Unless your state has hardly any title/reg fees, and a very low tax rate (sub 5%)......You will not touch a BASE MODEL FOR LESS THAN APPROX. $58,500. Unless you are a Chrysler employee and get their discount, I honestly do not see anyone getting invoice. I don't care what your dealer said.

If you get a nicely equipped vehicle around $61k, and DO GET invoice, you'd still be looking at around $60k out the door. Invoice isn't going to be less than $56.5-57k for a $61k vehicle. If you have a trade, then obviously that helps a lot. But straight up purchase I feel confident my numbers will be pretty damn close, perhaps even on the low side as I think I was generous with a $300 doc fee/title/registration/dealer fee/etc. charge, and 5% tax addition.

2012 buyers will lose a minimum of $5k the minute they drive it off the lot. After a year the loss will be in the neighborhood of $10k-$15k.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

I'm expecting to pay invoice or less, or else I will be back on the fence for sure. I agree with Schlep's math, it is what it is at this point. You either deal with it and pay a premium to own one, or you walk. It's that simple unfortunately. It will change over time, but also keep in mind come 2014 and the mid-model refresh comes out, the cost will likely be EVEN MORE.........

Milous, judging by your awesome vaseline graphic, it looks like you are in agreement about the price being a touch high?
