I don't see why you're worried about a price increase on the Jeep when you go out and get an AMG that's msrp is reasonably higher. Basically, I wouldn't use than as an excuse rather than you were impatient and went with something else.

Re: Couldn't wait any longer, bought C63 AMG

hilarious you guys jump on him for getting an AMG...I care. I want to see pics of that beast. Great choice...fun freeway cruiser. The CLK63 black is one of my all-time favorite rides

Joe - I haven't driven one yet but that is what my Dad told me (he went down and drove a 2010 and 2012 back to back)...the WK2 SRT was more like his X5 he said, where the WK1 SRT was raw and mean. He said "the 2010 SRT8 is the rig to buy, plus you save $20k+", but I reserve judgement till I drive a 2014

where do you get your info from?
2012 Jeep GC SRT8 starting MSRP $56,665
2012 Mercedes AMG C63 starting MSRP $58,930
wouldnt consider that "reasonably higher"
Info right off both company's web site.

Oh thanks pal. Now go and look at how far the Mercedes climbs in price. About $120k. What about the Jeep? Like $75? Sure you can get a base C63 AMG for $2k more but how many dealers do you think have one like that sitting on the lot? I'm going to assume not many. Leaving it at that, chances are it was reasonably more in price.

Might want to check your info again. You can not get a base SRT8 Jeep that was a pre launch price. 2012's are $62,085 MSRP base.

Your kidding right? Yes Mercedes AMG's do climb in price, but not the C63, 95k for a CLS63, 140k for a S63, 89k for a E63, but the C63 around 70k sounds right. Check online there are BRAND NEW C63's sitting on lots for sale...68k range loaded up. Also saw a 2012 for 64k. Just a few grand more than the wk2 srt8. I have the wk2 love it but the AMG is a beast also was my other choice just decided against it because its too small and only rwd.

You can find brand new C63s on cars.com for up to 125,000. You can find used ones for up to 75,000. You're kidding me right? Go look for yourself and tell me I'm wrong.

The 125k is for the Black series C63 Coupe, VERY limited in production and very rare, hence why the high price tag. And no idiot in their right mind would pay the 75k for a used one, as I showed you there are new ones in the mid 60's.

That's like saying you can't find wk2's in the 70s? Any dealer can tack on any mark up they want; but the fact of the matter is the wk2's are available in the 60's brand new, along with the C63 AMG Sedan for only a few grand more than the wk2 (not the Black series coupe, or the regular coupe, or any magical AMG you're thinking of).

The fact of the matter is you're comparing the highest Grand Cherokee to the most basic AMG. That's like comparing apples to oranges.

No, actually I'm comparing exactly what the OP was comparing when he made his choice, debating between the C63 and the Jeep Srt8 Wk2, no where did I stray off topic I simply put the prices of the two vehicles out there for the two vehicles he had considered.

thank you.. thats all i was doing as well... and my info came right off both company's web sites... not stupid cars.com. and yes that is base msrp for both! obviously they are both priced higher when optioned out, but that shows that they are almost exactly the same price! lol the trolls on this site crack me up
