How could you not own a SRT8 WK2, and do your inside contacts at Chrysler have any influence on price?
I would imagine he will, only because he is also doing this for other orders, most notably WK2 (non-SRT) orders... Even if it hurts him. I'm not sure he actually cancelled his order yet either though. In fact, I haven't heard one person "cancel", but I've heard 99% of us say "very likely will cancel" or something similar. Also someone reported a dealer cancelled their orders but I kind of doubt that...

How can anyone cancel until the have the facts?? My dealer reiterated in an unsolicited e-mail to me today that the MSRP was PRELIMINARY.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

So, anyone know if the Charger forum/community is as pissed as we are? I'm guessing probably not as much because they are still in the mid $40's for a hi-po car. The previous one was actually priced pretty low IMO.

Scott –Jeep Garage- There wasn’t anything definitely new as of early Monday but know there was some talking still going on. I just got that word in passing (and I paraphrased) from the PR head of SRT. I’ll email, ask and dig around to see what’s going on here at HQ.

Thanks for the heads up.

-Mike
That's very promising! Thanks Scottina06 and Thanks again Mike!!

$2K for that system that I heard this weekend ain't worth it to me. I wasn't all that impressed for 17.3 speakers or however many they have. The clearity just wasn't there for the amount of money. High volume level wasn't that loud nor clear. I was actually stoked to hear it....... until I did.

DAMN!!! I was afraid of this! Its going to be a paint in the ass ripping all 19 of the speakers out and the amp and then wiring up an entire custom system . . . AGAIN! I just wish the dang factory to get it right just ONCE! I mean haven't they ever heard a loud and clear system. Aftermarket stuff always leaves the option to have top notch sound but thats another $2-$3k right there!

Maybe the need to start just cutting the price and leaving the doors empty as an option???

Nobody said you have to buy the upgraded stereo (which he's talking about)...

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

Yeah but for $2K it ought to sound GOOD! Hell, my wife's 07 Audi Q7's Bose system sounds incredible and it doesn't even have a "sub" like the WK2 SRT does. It's got 2 7" subs up front in the doors. The staging is pretty good in it I'll say that but the clearity completely isn't there. Of course, you are talking to a complete audiophile grading a system but still, didn't expect to sound like what I thought it would.
