Have you been given approximate delivery dates?
I have spoken to two dealers in Melbourne, and both are telling me early next year.
This seems a lifetime away, and since the the car is already in production doesn't seem correct
I ordered... Jun/Jul is what Im told.

Re: Aussie 2014 SRT - Thoughts Please.

I too will hopefully be ordering a '14 soonish.

Spoke to the salesman at Castle Hill and he seems to think July delivery? After reading the debarcle of the '13's delivery I doubt we'll see any in Aus before Sep/Oct. Apparently builds start in April, so 3 months before it's built and sent that makes June/July possible. That's if the factory builds RHD models alongside the LHD models for America.

I would assume they will fill American order's well before the Aussie orders. but we can hope lol.

The factory has already started building 2014 RHD SRT's, although they are ramping up slowly. They are built alongside LHD models.

Thanks, that's good to know

So do you think July delivery to Aus is possible?

There are a few of us here who have ordered 2014 SRT's . The common estimate of early deliveries seems to be Q3 ( July / August ).

It may be dealer hype but mine is telling me if I wait till they have stock on the floor that could be very late in the year. Early stock is presold and wont sit on the floor. They are also saying overall stock supply will be tight and demand is exceeding supply. Whether that is true or just hype to stop any discount requests we will have to wait and see.
