So, Schlep are you ready to acknowledge that RG and the SRT team do give a sh** about serious SRTrs ? If they had not answered by late Fri I would have agreed with you. But they have gone well beyond answering a list of questions in going to a 2 hour Q&A with the Man himself.

Ok so the pricing may suck, just give the guy credit for wanting to put out a quality product. Supply and demand dictates the rest.

absolutely no solid replies have been provided yet to our questions. Let's wait and see how the Q&A goes first

And I do not harbor any ill will towards Ralph. It's the bean counters and lawyers that are generally the problem with Q&As. I think Ralph seems to be a cool guy that I would thoroughly enjoy hanging out and shooting the crap with over beers.

Re: BIG announcement coming Monday! ie. 2012 WK2 Jeep SRT8

Please ask where we can get "official" acknowledgment from Chrysler of the price protection for people who purchased before the 11th. Not that Milous isn't official in my book, it is that he is not official when you try explaining it to a dealer. This protection is the make or break deal for me, as it is probably for many of the pre-orders.

Dude, you make it sound as if customer loyalty is a new and untried idea. What you say holds no water, when I purchased mine it was built 13 days before I took delivery. I got 6,500 worth of discounts and rebates in January of '10 that weren't offered in December of '09. I'm sure guys were butt hurt over these new deals but it cleared out stock. I guess we shall see what happens. I know one thing, it ain't worth sitting around a computer speculating, fighting, bickering, and stressing over.......

Prices aren't changing, there won't be any rebates or discounts, or SRT loyalty discounts applied anytime soon. No chance. I agree with Schleprock, its not going to happen.

If there is a problem moving them at the end of the '12 cycle, you will see DEEP discounts. How else do you move product of ANY kind when it doesn't sell?

DISCOUNT!!!!

Re: BIG announcement coming Monday! ie. 2012 WK2 Jeep SRT8

depending on the economy....you may see deep discounts on everything. Remember 2009/10.....even econobox cars were discounted.

Re: BIG announcement coming Monday! ie. 2012 WK2 Jeep SRT8

I don't see them having too much of a problem (but I can only speak for the Canadian market) every single dealer I've talked to (called about 15-20 all over Canada) said any SRT's they are now getting are all spoken for, as well as having 2-3 people on a wait list waiting to get more after them. My local dealer only has me on the list and I'm good to go because I got my order in on June 1st.

Yes they were! I bought a brand new '08 Lariat super crew in Nov. '08 for 31,000!!! The MSRP was 46,000. Best deal EVER! I traded it on the jeep for 33,000 with 20k miles on it 14 mos. later. My Jeep MSRP was right at 48,000 and second sticker (what a joke) was 56,000. I was out the door for 41,500. So yes we may just see some great deals on them.

DISCOUNT!!!

I hear you..... but I for one, am getting my jeep my WK2 SRT8 MSRP $61,980 for $55,750, over $6k discount like you got, but I don't have to waste time in waiting for the possible discounts...... granted I ordered before Aug. 10 and I have a great dealer who is not trying to squeeze every possible penny in profit out of the sale......

Bottom line, if someone played their cards right they could have had the WK2 for a good discount without wasting any precious time in waiting and hoping for a future discount off MSRP......

Re: BIG announcement coming Monday! ie. 2012 WK2 Jeep SRT8

Well I guess only time will tell, I really don't see there being discounts applied on the 2012 models, possibly the 13's and up. I have a feeling even if the people here won't buy it because of the price increase they will still sell. The demand at dealers locally I've seen is ridiculous so shows that at least all ours are selling, I'm sure it will be the same in the US, for the first model year.
