Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

Hello. New to this site but it helped me not walk away with a 2013 gc srt8 this past Monday. Also call me crazy but my dealers gm said that we're given 2 preorders on 2014 srt8. One was a mineral grey and I took it. Put deposit down.

Welcome to the site Stpr8! I'm sure you'll be pleased with the ride. Myself I don't own yet but hopefully... soon. Placing order when the gates for Canadian orders open. Still waiting confirmation on when this will be.

Where abouts are you in Canada? I had ordered my 2012 SRT on June 15, 2011 in Regina and it did not come in until March 2012. Thanks to Milous I was able to track one down in Saskatoon and was able to get it alot sooner than March.

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.

Congrats. It will be interesting what color it is though since MG isn't on the list (supposedly). I wonder if that was an order for a 2013 that isn't getting built...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

Granite Crystal may end up what I order come January - it's darker than the MG. I'm still waiting for a nice sunny day to go check out a Max Steel in person, may swing that route.

Or they can make my year and give us a real blue

I'm in Alberta. I'm hoping if I order on the day orders become an option (Jan 9th?) that I'll be able to take delivery within 3 months or so. The GM I spoke with told me the later in the cycle one is ordered, it sometimes gets flipped to the next year's model or something which causes the delay. No idea how correct that is.

I'm still trying to find what MSRP or dealer cost is for Canada on the SRT8. I thought it was around 56 but the guy at the dealership told me it was 64,200. Again, no idea how close this is to reality.

Time to talk to the bank shortly so I can sign on the dotted line the day things become available. I have to believe if I order the day orders start, I'll be well ahead of other Canadian orders (that come after Jan 9th) and this will result in my taking delivery sooner. (wishful thinking)

thx for your help, I'll pm you if names will help later. Cheers!

Fantastic idea. Once upon a time the idea of a "stripper" or "sleeper" (ie the big-dog powertrain in the base vehicle) was commonplace, but nowadays it seems like most OEMs are more apt to offer the exact opposite (base powertrain in the snazzed-up, "look at me" vehicle). I love the fact that ChryCo is not afraid to again embrace this true hot-rodder concept.

I've been a "GM guy" for the past 20+ years for various reasons (I will always love the LSx), but it's ideas like this and what I see as a genuine appreciation for the car enthusiast from the SRT group that has me ready to purchase my first Jeep.

If you're referring to the 2014 models, no official pricing has been released yet and may not be until January/February.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

For me, right now the most important piece of info I am awaiting word on is when I can go order one officially. If the waiting period is insane for some that order come the middle of the year, I want to order literally the day the banks open and they allow me to. I know from what you've said and kbench55 had said - Canadian orders are rare and take time to get.

I had previously wanted to wait for the official unveil at the DAS but screw that, lol. if I can someone get the jump on someone and possibly get my beast a little earlier (3 months as opposed to 5 months) I am all about it.

Not sure if Jan 9th as previously discussed so when you're able to tell us, it's *much* appreciated. Thank you!
