Maybe March/April for the US market.. Not sure about international orders, but would guess 3 months later atleast

If you're in Canada - you're going to need a great deal of patience and good luck. They build 6-8 SRT's for Canada per month, and they currently have over 300 in the system on backorder from 2013. I got this from someone looking at the system yesterday that is a GM for a dealership group. Now his intel could have been wrong or he could have been mis-reading something. Perhaps he was in a off mood so he took out that on me giving me monster numbers to see if I'd say screw this and leave or stay and want to talk ordering. He was a really nice guy, but the 300 #... ouch.

He said of those 300, most will be cancelled (not sure why). he said it happens when someone orders and then the production line stops to retool etc and then it's a new model with new prices and people back out etc.

Still, if there are 300 Canadian SRT8 ahead of me right now, at a rate of 6-8 per month.. forgive me for saying so but WTF WTF WTF WTF No way those numbers can be right.

I'm still crossing my fingers but you're in Canada as well, I'd suggest getting your order in the week of Jan 14th when the order banks officially open.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

WHY...would Chrysler let 300 ORDERS set there and not build them to sell? Think about it....thats almost $20million dollars of SRT Jeeps...

I'm from the middle east. I went to a dealer tonight , They know nothing about the 2014's. They expect them to arrive on the 3rd quarter ! but I'm assuming that this is a wrong info , because they have no details about them at all !

Thank you and good luck with your order

...which would not exactly be good news, because aiming at rarity and lower volume means increased prices.
While I can understand the move for the Challenger, which is a sport coupe to start with, for the GC it doesn't make any sense, IMHO.

He said it's not that they let them sit, it's that there are only so many made per day (in SRT trim) and of those made, 90% are allotted to US market and US sales, the other 10% (or so) go to Canada and other countries. So Canada gets 6-8 per month. If there are 100 orders and 6-8 made per month.. orders start to pile up. fast.

He said the dealers that order other vehicles get preferential treatment - so if you own a dealership and you agree to take 30 Durangos (which can't be moved lately for whatever reason) as well as some Darts etc - then Chrysler likes you and throws some of the SRT's they have your way. The dealer that didn't order extra inventory but just wants some SRT's, goes to the end of the line.

In short, car dealers get sold by Chrysler. Car salesmen getting sold by car salesmen. It's all one big selling cluster****. lol

I hope to hell he's wrong on his #'s though.

Daddy wants his SRT

I'd agree but the GC is the rarest of all SRT's with exception of Viper. They are trying for this to make the market value for this specific Jeep high. Good for resale, good for rep but yeah, maybe not good for sales.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

pretty sure the Jeep is number 2 in sales behind only the chally? Maybe Milous has more insight...but I believe weve discussed this before. The Jeep sold close to 5000 units in 2012.

I was told it's not about the sales numbers, it was about their direction for making them hard to get so everyone wants one. This guy could be mistaken, he said he heard that at the GM/Dealership meeting Chrysler held where they rolled our 64 upcoming vehicles/changes that are coming "down the pipe".

In regards to being rare - the new style Viper as an example, Canada hasn't seen it yet. There have been several sold, but not one delivered. They're trying to keep the SRT Jeep something luxurious, fast etc.

GM at the dealership told me if I wanted a Charger or Challenger SRT, even SuperBee or Yellow Jacket, he could get one of those inside 30-45 days and that's in Canada. If you want a Jeep SRT8.. you're waiting for months after months after months and even then, you may not get one because of the pre-sales versus how many actually come here. There was both a Superbee and Yellow Jacket at this dealership ready for sale - he goes, you sure I can't get you in this instead? (Yellow Jacket was fine and then some but I am holding out hope for the 6.1 Cuda down the road as a secondary if that ends up happening)

Come on SRT Team! Hire more workers - crank those puppies out for us!

As always Milous, if you can shed light or intel to correct this, by all means, please do

The srt jeep is built right along side the grand cherokee....which is chryslers second best seller behind the Ram pickups. That could be one reason.
