All 2012 SRT8 models get the Active Suspension, custom tuned for each vehicle. While the Charger went up $7k (if pricing prove to be correct) it includes the Harman Kardon premium audio system and 8.4" navigation radio as Standard.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

They all have active dampening but if I'm not mistaken only the Jeep is able to CONTROL it (Track/Sport/Auto/Snow/Tow)....

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

I believe the Chargers and Chally have simply track and sport or track and auto. Two modes so nowhere near the control in the Jeep but those are cars and would only need those two modes anyway. I wouldn't have my Chally/Charger out in the snow and definitely cant tow with it haha.

Anyway regarding this delay. I think with the AMOUNT and type of feedback HQ is getting about these prices they are SWEATING a little bit about this production commencement! I think something HAS TO happen soon and I think it will be better news than what we have Don't quote me though lol

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

Was the "preliminary" price a trial baloon? Were we the focus group?? Why preliminary and the long delay after if this is not the case? We do know they pay attention to the blogs.

Or maybe the opposite........maybe it was actually a mistake and now they are reading that there are still plenty out there that will pay the higher price, so trying to figure out a way to make the huge price increase.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

Plenty out there? Rip Van Winkle...Welcome to today. I've yet to read anyone happy and willing to pay the higher price.
Some folks are accepting their order as long as they get invoice. Maybe you're seeing something I'm not, but I doubt it....

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

IMO...some of the option prices are just a horrid.....

ie....
LUXURY GROUP II $2995 must be a joke
REAR DVD ENTERTAINMENT CENTER (INCLUDES SINGLE SUNROOF*) $2495 -I added this to my 2006 for like $200
SRT HIGH PERFORMANCE AUDIO $1990----wow

yep, certainly agree we were the focus group and the results are, or should be clear! I hope they actually take them into serious consideration and do the "right thing"

I was one of the guys saying they could get their full MSRP and think its a good thing in some regards, but I REALLY DO wish they would come back to the old "Jeep territory" as far as pricing goes and continue to appeal to the blue collar middle class people! Thats what Jeep always was and should remain and price is half that battle!

I think their trying to change their image slightly w/ the new SRT8 but I say screw trying to get into the high-performance luxury sector with this increase!! Although it would help them financially, I think it will do more DAMAGE than good in the general scheme as they will likely lose a lot of loyal Jeep enthusiasts. Just my .02 - like the old saying, why fix it if it aint broke??

It's because they are calling the 6x9's woofers not speakers LOL

There are many that are not happy yes, but I have still seen plenty willing to pay the additional costs. Look at the poll...last time I looked 30% still were going to suck it up and pay for it.
