Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

I agree I'm over it the excitement has left the building and for some the impulse buy I'm sure as well with the delay in pricing myself and many have started pricing other vehicles most people buy out of impulse not necessity when it comes to cars that adrenaline rush only lasts for so long and like a junkie were going to get our fix somewhere else.

WooHoo who doesn't want to be part of this historic venture with Chrysler..

I like how some say that for those who buy BMW, Porsche, Mercedes will buy this SRT Jeep up with no problem because they recognize what they are getting is comparable to what they can get that costs a lot more, to me that is a slap in the face and basically calling them stupid. Most people who are in the position to buy higher end automobiles didn't get to the financial position in life by being a uninformed uneducated dopes by throwing money away like it's nothing. The first year alone in decrease in value will be drastic if this pricing holds making it a bad move on those who value resale.


I had to laugh when a Jeep commercial played right before the video started how ironic

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

I agree the longer this is taking for them to release the price and start production is making me not want it anymore. If they can't get their act together to release pricing what does it say for the company? I am loosing interest quickly.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

With a product like the 2012 Jeep SRT-8 and the current SRT lineup, a soft launch on any of the vehicles would moat likely result weaker overall sales. It seems like the product teams have delivered, now it's time for SRT and Chrysler bring it home. The reviews for the SRT 8 have been Luke warm, at best, which is an easy indicator for how the product will be received and is crucial for generating early interest. It is hard to miss the tone of the first batch of reviews and I personally believe that if the reviewers where evaluating based on a lower MSRP, I'm sure the the reviews would have been solid. I would hate to see price point damage the potential of this product line. I'm still holding hope that Chrysler has noticed and is taking the time now to adjust and to try to avoid this pitfall.

So hang in there, try to hold on to your orders and let's see where things end up.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

This also has been lingering in my mind and has been a deal breaker for some

Well said. Considering all of the issues being discussed on this Forum, the biggest issues being the lack of committed cost information when ordering was opened, and the continued delay of releasing the cost information, doesn't speak much for the company, nor, does it leave much of a continued desire for their product.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

This is really starting to piss me off. I need to get a new car and I need to know if it is going to be the SRT I have ordered! Man up Jeep! I am a big boy I can handle it. How much is it?!

Exactly, plus the more I think about it. It is really a laredo on the outside with just different bumpers and hood. Of course the nice engine and overland type interior trim there is no way they can command a $55K base price. It only makes sense to be $43K base plus the rapping of the additional packages. I really can't believe I really thought $60K loaded was still a good deal a week ago, lol.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

I wonder if the tub area where the spare tire should be is still on the SRT version? I bet it is I doubt they redid tooling just for this model, just trying to still grasp my head around the extra$$ on this rumored MSRP.
