Re: 2012 Jeep SRT8 potential owner concerns! NEED input from you guys!

Excuse the fact that I am not technical so I might not be saying this correctly.
My SRT mechanic at the dealer said that the new 6.4L motor will have issues with supercharging because of the variable timing or something wiith new motor. ( he said its designed to be strong at low and high RPM`s but makes a problem to add supercharger ). Not sure if this makes sense to anyone who is more technical savvy then me

I guess what he is saying is...... don't put a supercharger on.......

I am perfectly fine with that, others might not be.....

Re: 2012 Jeep SRT8 potential owner concerns! NEED input from you guys!

Everyone has not stopped talking about the pricing being so high so I have a question.
My wonderful dealer in San Diego that I have purchased many cars from is telling me they are charging me 5k over MSRP to sell me the truck.
I ordered on 1st day they would accept orders and they took my order before telling me they were charging over.
Am I only one being told it will be over MSRP ? I am hoping to use this forum to show my dealer to get them to agree to buy at MSRP
Also, does anyone know where else I could order this truck from a dealer with high allocations so I can as quickly as possible.
Thanks
Jeff

Does your dealer know the price? LOL...
There are plenty of dealers out there who have offered them at invoice. Nevermind MSRP....Or in your case MSRP + $5k
You're talking about $70,000 dollars? OMG....You need another dealer!

Hopefully since Chryco is taking some time to answer the questions you sent them so they can give meaningful answers not BS ones like "We are committed to low production numbers" (instead of answering is 3800 going to be the limit for future years) or "Allocations are constantly changing" or "Production depends on a variety of constraints including the receipt of inventory from suppliers" or "We feel the pricing structure of the vehicle is indicative of" blah blah blah.

Re: 2012 Jeep SRT8 potential owner concerns! NEED input from you guys!

1. I'll be surprised if they give any answers at all.
2. If they do answer, I'll be even more surprised if they do it within the next week..... or three
3. If they do answer, I'll be even more surprised than the previous two statements if they provide any kind of substance. I'll fully expect half the questions not to be answered or no solid reply provided, just vague open-ended replies.

Not to worry, I have it on good authority that your dealer will give you the same priority that Jeep is in building the SRTs.

Re: 2012 Jeep SRT8 potential owner concerns! NEED input from you guys!

Hope it's not too late to have my comments included

1). My SRT8 WK2 will be my fifth Jeep, it's at least $10,000 more then I had budgeted. Will Chrysler come up with a combination of affiliate pricing, loyalty discount and other incentives to close this gap?

2). I feel strongly that the designers/engineers took their eyes off the ball when they let the curb weight balloon to over 5000 lbs and then added only 50 HP. It's too late for launch, but could there be a retro package of tunes/mods (no blower) that could squeeze out another 30 HP? I like the sound of 500 HP.
