Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

He said nothing in the system. I'm deciding whether to drop the bomb on the dealer(?) about what it is.

EDIT: I cordially invited him to check the US Dealer Site instead. And warned him to make sure he is sitting down. LOL.

EDIT 2: Told dealer about production delay. His reply was "Creating a demand I assume" And yes, I literally get replies from my dealer via email THIS fast!

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

It's cheaper in Canada because our dollar is worth more, and is going to stay that way for a long time.

it's your own fault if you do, no one's received or signed a contract yet.

Can someone get Mike D on the horn and see if we can get this thing put to bed? In all seriousness, I'm about done with this whole charade.

Maybe because the Canadian $ is worth 5-6% more than the US$.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - MSRP Pricing

I know, I didn't even give a deposit, so I'm out nothing..

Btw, I said "would be", so yes it is future and it might be different but seriously WTF are these crooks thinking with this price?!

Milous. I know you've voiced your opinion about this price as much ad we have. Thank you for your efforts and info.
This is very sad if this is the base MSRP. You can't go and charge this amount, then back peddle in a year or two to drop the price because it doesn't sell. You can't argue costs have increased because you just dropped the price on WK 2 across the board.
This will surely have a negative effect on the Jeep SRT8.
I can afford it but I'm not paying 55k for it.
Overland w twin Turbo and your still cheaper? That doesn't make sense!

It's a shame... I just got my JeepGarage stickers in the mail. Now I'll have nothing to put them on.

Can I really just buy an overland summit and put a supercharger on there without voiding the Warranty?
