Unfortunately, the price hike will take a toll on sales after schmucks like us all bought ours. I think if they priced it closer to the other new SRT8s, there wouldn't be any around.

there are a lot more parts (well, different) in the jeep than the other SRTs. Hence the higher price. Examples, t-case, 6 piston brembos.

aside from the Challenger, the other SRTs are not selling well last I read. And across the 3 major coupe competitors (Camaro/Mustang/Chally), the Challenger is last as well. (Perhaps why the "Cuda is taking over in 2014-15)

They need to make the Challenger smaller, it's just enormous for a coupe. I thought about getting one but I think I would get a GT500 over it, especially with 650hp for 2013.
