Problem with ordering in Canada is they are *very* limited. Dealer size, if they are part of a network etc is what decides who gets what. I myself am right outside Calgary and my dealer, who is part of a eight dealership network were told point blank from Chrysler Canada - you get ONE. I was lucky enough to be that one because of when I ordered etc.

My dealer has told me they have had 10-15 others ask about it but they can't get another until next year.

So my advice is to go major city only, and ask if they have already ordered one for anyone. If they say yes, you won't have that good a chance of getting one. Dealers won't be getting more than one in most cases for Canada is what I have heard.

Hell, some Canadian orders were made on Jan 15th when the banks opened and they still haven't been scheduled for production.

It's a waiting process but hard work and searching and you might just find yourself with one! Good luck man!

I was told by the Chrysler dealer that a white one is coming right here in Regina Canada,next month in April,relax if you really want one you will get it,some people are getting carried away as if the vehicle is going out of style or production.

I agree that if you are welling to wait then you will ultimately get one even in Canada. However, most of us want one and want one NOW ..

It is not going out of style or production, but it is very much extremely limited production. Not every dealer can order one, only dealers with buying power can order and when their allocation is filled (which is usually one) that is it for the model year. There are dealers that have taken money for one, and they're not even scheduled to be built.. where as some Canadian orders are built and in transit already. It comes down to where you order, who you order from, and also when ordered in many cases.

Ralph Gilles made it clear that he wants the SRT brand to be something not mass produced, he limits production numbers on purpose. he has said this in many an interview. We're not talking about a mini van here, we're talking about the second highest priced vehicle in Chrysler's line up. It holds it's value by not mass producing it. Simple supply and demand.

Mangoe, If you are of the mindset that you'll see one sitting on a lot this year available for purchase, where the dealer isn't asking 10k over sticker... LOL, i'll have what you're drinking.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

Actually the dealer said that they sell for $5,000.00 above the MSRP,and he have seen some go for as high as 10,000.00 above the MSRP.

Which is great, if you are okay with overpaying?

I'm just playing. Seriously tho.. anything over msrp means you're getting played.

I paid MSRP (in the US you pay under, in Canada you never get an SRT for under MSRP). I know many in Canada that pay msrp. Those that pay more are the people that listend to people saying relax, no big deal, you can get one later (winky face).

Your best option - start calling and putting deposits down immediately.

JDR I'm not sure I buy the one per dealer thing anymore. I have heard it too -- I was the first 2014 order at my dealership but they had 2 2013 rollovers. I was told that both of those got scheduled a couple weeks ago and I would be next (of course when is hard to predict - I'm kind of hoping later than sooner because I want laguna

Are dealers in Calgary not accepting orders? It's odd because I'm pretty sure they can put in more orders. I'm betting its all a play to get more $$$

Btw my dealer said there was no limit in the system on how many he could order... Just that they won't get built possibly

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

Rollovers don't count being that those are existing orders from previous years (that counted on that years allocation etc) and yes, dealers can order whatever but if they're not being built - that's the same thing as not getting it, isn't it?

Upside.. order from a dealer and it's not built... (drum roll) it gets rolled to next year.

there are some dealers with ability to order more than one, they're just few and far between and Purpleman said he was in Calgary area. In Calgary area there is one major player that may have that ability if they didn't have rollovers from the previous year.

Sucks they're so tight in Canada

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

My issue with waiting (beside being inpatient) is that rumours around on the net that in 2016 we are suppose to have a completely new GC !!! I don’t want to get almost 80K SRT that is going to be the old model in few months after I get it

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

I have to believe that some will show up and someone will not get theirs etc due to credit or price or life changes etc which open one up. I know I saw a user in here, named Rempsen. .. he's got two black srt's inbound, one in KZ, one in I (built, pending inspection). Not sure if he ordered two at different dealerships or what.. might want to contact him and snag one of his pre-orders?
