Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

I got an e-mail from the New Car Dealer at the AAFES dealership in Germany. I had planned on buying an SRT8 upon return from the desert.

Anyway, he said that he could provide a preliminary quote. What he sent me was basically a loaded out 2013 with a $2000 or so price hike for the new model year. This price came out to a little over $71000. To me, it seems a little steep.

I am going to have to wait until I get back to the states and find something used AAFES is crazy as hell. Even dropping all of the options I am somewhere in the $68000 territory with the electrical extended warranties still intact.

Now, this "Core" model, what features will it possess? A Grand Cherokee with a 6.4L would be great, but no leather or Performance Pages would be a bummer. Guess I will wait until I get back (I will continue to follow this though...lol).

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

I am in Kabul now and plan on ordering mine through AAFES as well...I ordered my 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8 the same way...

I would hold off and wait to see what the actually pricing is...sounds like your rep is making stuff up...the AAFES rep here in Kabul will not even provide me a quote yet...he wants to wait for the official release to give me an accurate quote...

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
I sent you a PM about my Canadian ordering experience. Basically, I think your dealer is blowing lots of smoking and trying to create the extra demand to make people think they should be paying more for this jeep. Yes, it is very hard to get one here in Canada but not as hard as your dealer is portraying.

PM me the dealership that you are talking to. I talked to every dealer in Calgary and Edmonton when I was looking, and you would not believe some of the stories they told me. There were a few that were particularly bad that I can steer you away from if you would like.

Milous was very valuable and helpful on my search and I could not thank him enough for all his help and resources.

The first SRT I had ordered on June 22, 2011 and it was not actually delivered to Mar 22, 2012. Thanks to Milous I was already driving the exact jeep I wanted for 2 months by then. Keep in mind this was from Regina, which is quite a bit smaller than Calgary or Edmonton. I would assume dealers in those two cities would be a lot quicker as it looks like AB gets the most allocation for the western provinces.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

kbench,

I saw your message today about Canadian ordering experience, I'd appreciate it if you could share some details with me as well... I'm in Edmonton, and have been seriously considering ordering an SRT in 2014.

You mentioned some dealerships that you would stay away from also?

Sorry would have sent a PM, but I am too new to this forum to be able to.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

I'm guessing this is a 20" rim? Any chance it could be 22" ?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

If they do the supercharged special edition version, they should do a Plum Crazy colored one. I might go for that. With those rims.
