Getting ready to purchase JGC SRT, advice please.

Hello JeepGarage! Looking into getting an SRT and have been doing a lil research here and there, actually a lot of research. With the options these vehicles have pricing is all over the place, from 64k-75k MSRP.

I've located a White with red interior which is what I wanted all along. initially I could only find white with black or Laguna Sepia. Now that I've found this one in California I am definitely more interested.

About the vehicle:
White with Red Vapor Package (26J)
HK sound system, which is great because other RED vapor SRT's dont seem to come equipped with the HK sound system.
Dual pane

The only thing is no Tow option, which I really don't do any towing, never have actually, but it'd be nice to have just in case. Can this be added in the future if need be?

Anyway, MSRP is $74,570. Its been discounted to $66,190 but I'm hoping there are some rebates or incentives to go along with that. I would love to be at 63k OUT THE DOOR, including taxes which here in california is 10%. I'd be fine but absolute imit is 66k OTD.

You guys think I can get this for 66k OTD or even less?

Help me out with your buying tactics fellas!!!


Love SRT cars. My current one is an 09 Challenger SRT 6 speed. Love it but its time for something else.

So you want a new, limited edition SRT for $15k off the sticker price? That's 20% off the MSRP. Because you'd have to get it down to $59k before taxes to be at 66k OTD.

Never gonna happen, but good luck!

And I'd never buy an SUV without the tow package.

I hear you loud and clear, I think 59-60k is nuts too but I have to try. 2015 is almost over, there are several dealers in my area with 8-15 SRT's.

Realistically im looking at 68-70k but hoping how late in the year are will help a lil more. I'm in no rush and could wait it out til next year.

Can I add the tow option later?

Re: Getting ready to purchase JGC SRT, advice please.

Got a lil more info on this specific vehicle. It's a 2015 Demo with a lil over 9k miles. 66k + tax is way too much for this vehicle. From reading the threads here on jeep garage, folks have been able to get these for the same amount for a NEW vehicle.

I offered them 60k out the door. It's a used car no matter how you look at it and pointed out the wear and tear in the tires and brake pads as well as the interior. We'll see what they say, if anything at all.

What do you guys think is fair for a high mileage demo?

You can easily get 3% under invoice on a new vehicle...

It's fair for a demo. Buy the Mopar lifetime warranty while you're at it though, just in case.

Anyone know what question play is? Dealer told me they would sell to me $1100 behind question play.

Re: Getting ready to purchase JGC SRT, advice please.

The thing is, 2015 might almost be over but that's what's still in production. Not the normal scenario where these 2015s are leftovers because 2016 has already been in production. Another thing is, the SRT is somewhat limited production and that retains not only value better but means less discounts when purchasing new. If you want $15k off, you'd be better checking out a new Yukon Denali.

If it has 9k miles on it I wouldn't even consider paying 60k. In all honesty I would wait for the 2016 which might actually end up being a 2017 since you won't see on till Jan and the pay slightly under invoice for a NEW unabused vehicle with fresh tires and known history.

While I agree with you, what would you consider "abuse" of an SRT? I thought they were intended to be driven hard with the understanding that you'd pay for it in tires and brakes.

My Summit was a demo with 5k miles on it. I got it for about $10k under MSRP, my trade-in paid for all the taxes and fees.

$66k is insane for a vehicle with almost 10k miles on it. You might as well look at the used market and get one in the mid to high 50s. I think $60k OTD is a decent price, meaning you're paying probably $55-56k on it. I imagine they'll have a tough time selling a demo in that price range. Anyone spending that coin usually wants their car brand new.
