Re: First retail 2012 Jeep SRT rolls off the line!

The SRT high performance tour stopped in my town today. Only talked to 1 of the 4 drivers. Asked a few questions some of his answers have me confused. The first is that only 10 will be built a week. My concern with this is I don't see it until ???. The next was the price, I was told that there is no official price not the first price that came out or the Aug 10 increase but that the option of the luxury group ll and the HK were in the base and was official but the price was not official. Asked a few more but did not know or was tired of every body asking about production, price, allocation etc. but he only wanted to talk about the jeep. Now the jeep it was nice-he could not start it for me because there were "too many people around the rear of the jeep". The seats are very nice the stereo was unbelievable for factory. I could not get my wife out of the Charger. That was one of the four that really stood out.

Thanks for sharing some feedback from the conversation. I think it confirms what many of us probably thought - "Very few people have an idea of what is going on with this line of vehicles when it comes to production volume, scheduling, or pricing". I probably would have stopped listening as soon as they said "10 per week", can't see how they reach anywhere near previous volumes at that rate. Would be interested to to hear additional thoughts on the stereo and whether or not the pictures do the wheels justice.

So they've built 3 models going out to Mexico before they've even built one model going out to Canada? WTF! This is complete crap.

Edit: Or does that mean 3 models have been built in a plant in Mexico? Lol??? So confused...Milous fill me in here buddy

Now you know what it's like to be an American citizen, except it goes for all area of life, not just vehicle production.



So they built 4 units yesterday or today?

Re: First retail 2012 Jeep SRT rolls off the line!

No I don't know what its like to be an American citizen still because you guys still have 9 units built for yourselves and none for us, even though we're the ones that get shafted one almost every vehicle purchase with a much higher price for a vehicle produced a few hours south of the boarder. However, those units going to Mexico should be going to Canada, that is complete crap.

He also said that the jeep on the tour is the 2nd one that was produced and that the first 1 made went to M&M the rap artist.

Bro, you really need to chill out. You're starting to get way too hyper over this. I believe you should accept that you won't see your truck until mid Oct-Nov time frame. If it gets there earlier, great. I've accepted that this thing won't be to me until October at the rate they are going.

I agree. I saw the video on the people driving them around on the tour and they seem like nice people....but I don't think I would believe a word they said outside of pure stats related to the vehicles makeup.

P.S. who's M&M? Which color candy coated droplet got the truck? Or maybe it was Eminem?
