I had called every dealer in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta when I was looking to buy one. Most dealers wanted $5,000-$15,000 above window sticker. If you would like some information on which dealers were helpful and willing to do window sticker or better, PM me and I will give you their names.
Chrysler please increase the allocation to Western Canada. I was hoping to get an SRT8 GC this year but will not pay above MSRP for one. That much over MSRP will put the buyer into another level of vehicle. Might consider a slightly used ML63 or something else in that price range if I can't get a Jeep.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

Canada's population is 34.4 million (2011).

California is 37.7 million (2011) in comparison.

It doesn't shock me that they didn't move a ton of them up North but the difference from 2012 to 2013 is staggeringly huge.

Were there just no people in Canada ordering/buying or was Chrysler not sending them out so they could be bought? I'd have thought if they sold 362 2012 models, they'd have sold ar least 200-250 of the 2013 models, but if they weren't sent... then that's confusing to me.

I saw a 2013 model in a local dealership near me (small local town) but they want 69.9 for it. Given the changes to the 14 model, nope nope nope nope. Not interested in a 13, thank you very much.

The sales manager I spoke with told me he can't just order an SRT8 because he thinks it will sell. he has to have an approved buyer in place. The customer must put down $1000 (refundable) and then after approval, he or she can custom order and go on the list.

Regardless, I'm in there on January 9th once Milous or Chevyboy or Marlon or Scott tell me that's when the magic happens. I may be in Western Canada and I might wait a little longer but a 2014 will be mine.

My only wish is that in the next 8 or 9 days, we find out when the order banks open officially. Not sure if the banks are the same for Canada as they are the US Market?

Milous, you're awesome. thank you for the info.

California dealers have received 120 '13s so far (Texas and Illinois have also each received more than all of Canada). Don't know why Canada production is so low, if it is simply low demand or that there are other reasons. There are quite a few other countries (many smaller than Canada) that have received higher allocations.

Jeep may require that SRT orders be for customers, but there are no rules/provisions in place to "approve" buyers or require any specific deposit amount. What the sales manager told you would be their own dealership rules.

Order date is still up in the air, it's either going to be January 8th or February 5th (OR somewhere in between those dates). Canada *should* open on the same day, but there have been times in the past where they have opened slightly earlier or slightly later than the U.S.

Possible good news for the SRT crowd... RG just tweeted that he will look into 2 tone interiors for SRTs when he gets back to work

Milous,

Are the allocations to various areas all predetermined? For example you showed 53 sold in Alberta for 2012. Does that mean that once 53 were delivered to Alberta that was it for 2012?

Just curious how this works. If I want a SRT8 it looks like I can't count on finding one on a dealers lot without an obscene markup based on the limited numbers up here. I see a dealer currently selling a used 2012 with 11,000 Kms for $72999! That is just nuts! Saw some new SRTs advertised above $80k up here not to long ago.

When I ordered my first Jeep SRT8 in 2006 I believe I waited about 9 months and ended up getting a 2007. When I decide to pull the trigger I don't want to wait that long again.

Thanks Milous for all the great info, both here and on your website.

Thanks to Scott, Marlon, Chevy and others for all the great inside info. I look forward to catching up on all the new posts everyday.

Cheers.

Thanks for the info Milous. Quick question for you. Were any of those SRT for Saskatchewan a Vapor model? The reason I ask is, I was driving around yesterday and I saw a Black SRT with what looked like Black Chrome rims. Where I live it is very rare for me to see any other SRT let alone one with rims like that.

Nope. Only one Vapor model built so far for Canada and it went to a dealer/customer in Ontario.

So summer of '13 when you can normally order 14's or is it "fall" till you can order?
I'm really trying to guess when the magazine reviews of the engine come out. It's been a long time coming for the s/c'd hemi.
