You are making assumptions that you have no data to back up. Although a few here are not ordering it, every dealer I spoke with indicated they would always order it for stock vehicles. One of the major features touted by Jeep is the ability to tow, not ordering that option runs counter to that marketing claim.

Also, manufacturers don't price options based on preliminary orders, they price options based on the cost to manufacture. IMHO the real price of that option will be the same as it is with every other V8 WK2, about $500 US and it will include the hitch and wiring harness. The parts are identical to those used in all trim levels except for the bumper cover.

Based on those same conversations with dealers my guess is most "for stock" vehicles will be ordered with every option except rear DVD. Southern dealers will also order the 3 season tires.

All this talk about market pricing (and I'll admit I succumbed to it too) is conspiracy theory rumors run amuck. The price will be based on the cost to manufacture, which includes amortized costs such as engineering and R&D. I really never believed they would front load the price with what Milous correctly called out as a factory "second sticker" to capitalize on market pressure. That's not the way a manufacturer prices product. Remember, Jeep sells to dealers, not the retail market. It's up to the dealers to set the market price.

Chrysler isn't stupid, they know one of the keys to the runaway success of this new platform is the "bang for the buck" factor. If you take that away sales will collapse. I know for a fact that if the Overland would have been the same price as a VW, BMW or LR it wouldn't be sitting in my garage right now.

Fair enough but isn't that why they put the quote feature in, to allow people to snip posts?

Let me rephrase, I disagree that the price change has anything to do with scanning orders for the reason I posted, the costs of the hitch package are spread across the entire model lineup and there's no basis in fact that putting a hitch and it's associated wiring on the SRT is any more costly than putting it on a Laredo.

obviously this whole pricing fiasco has many on edge so let me extend the olive branch and apologize if my reply was too pointed. Of course it's your opinion and I respect that.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

And so it goes, we wait......

Wait to see if:

1) The 2012 SRT8 is priced appropriately relative to prior guidance, cost and profit margins, previous editions, and the other WK2 and SRT8 models, or,

2) Price gouging starting at US $55k is the new order given limited production, enthusiast niche, new ownership consortium, fleet gas mileage targets, aspirational positioning (aka stretch or hope), 2011 WK2 high unit sales volume, and other variables, valid or not.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

Is there any projected date for pricing to come out? or is Jeep keeping everyone in the dark about it including our very knowledgeable milous? Is there even a projected projected date for the start of production? Jeep is doing a great job of building buzz for the srt-8 line up thats for sure.

Actually today it would equate to 948.4 posts in Canada, our post rate seems to follow our currency exchange rate, dunno why, just does.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

I have all faith US base will be $43-44K

Everyone should get over the fact that it was a mistake the magazines quoted the Canadian base price.

It will be a $10K or more difference between the Canadian and US base prices.

Look at all the Canadian prices for the 2011's the higher the price the greater the difference.
