Smile Help needed in Australia!

Help, help, help, can anyone please advise when the my2014 SRT is scheduled to arrive in AUS. I Have had a deposit sitting with a dealer since November last year for a my2013 which did not come to fruition. I told the dealer to keep the deposit and i will place an order on a my2014. It is becoming frustrating as the dealer cannot give me any info, can someone please please supply me with some info which will give me some form of hope that i will eventually get to own this beast.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Help needed in Australia!

I believe it was posted that orders that were not filled will be filled quickly. But...we dont have any order dates or launch dates for Australia just yet. I would expect maybe this spring or early summer.

Many thanks for the reply, it at least gives me some form if info, I hope my order will be filled quickly once filed. So it looks like late 2nd quarter to early 3rd quarter of this year, long wait, hopefully it will be worth it!....

Once again many thanks!

Re: Help needed in Australia!

I'm in a similar situation. I'm told just this morning that order banks in Australia open on Feb 28th with Chrysler Australia (they handle the importing process for the Jeep SRT). You then have 48 hrs to confirm you're order before it's locked in. At that point you should be given a pretty accurate delivery date.

We still don't know what colours, options, etc will be available to us. This is why they've given us 2 days to look over the options & costs, and finalize.

I've been told July 2013 is a reasonable expectation for delivery, but I'm thinking more like September at this stage - that way I'm setup to be pleasantly surprised.

Re: Help needed in Australia!

I am going to see the dealer tomorrow, interested to see what he has to say. Of the colours you know of, what do you think you will get if available, i am thinking either white or the granite grey (have not seen any grey pics though), with the tan sepia interior (if available now). The one thing i am not keen on are the rims, imo the 2013's looked better, hopefully we have rim options.
Cheers

Re: Help needed in Australia!

I agree on almost all accounts, sounds like we have similar taste. I initially picked black however, as that was the colour of the car that I test drove. I wasn't totally convinced though and have since settled on white. I also want the sepia interior, and I think it'll go alright with the neutrals (white/grey/black).

I also prefer last year's rims. I believe you can order the older rims however, they should appear on the options list. If I go with white, then I'll be getting the black chrome version.

Smile Re: Help needed in Australia!

Good to know there are rim options, black chrome is a definite with the white paint. I saw my dealer today, rolled over my my2013 contract to my2014, he also mentioned late Feb ordering banks open with expected delivery end of July (should place bets on this). So this is what i am getting:
White exterior
Black chrome rims
Tan sepia interior(if available)
Pano roof
Srt audio upgrade, and possibly, headrest screens, if the final price tag is not excessive. From what the dealer is telling me, the new price increase will not be that big an increase........
Cheers

Re: Help needed in Australia!

Spot on with my order. Since I was "assigned" a 2014 vehicle at the time of my order i'll be expecting the same base pricing. Thinking of dropping the rear DVD here due to the design however, my 2yr old would break that folding screen in a jiffy.

Re: Help needed in Australia!

I have an order in for the 2014 as well. Re the Sepia interior, I had the impression that this would not be available immediately - but instead later in the year .

I would be stoked with end of July, like the others here I am mentally prepared for September!

Smile Re: Help needed in Australia!

Yeah that is what i have heard aswell, but we do tend to get options at the higher end of the scale from day one here in AUS. We will just have to wait and see what the options list is like, i won't cry if not available, so long as there is a rim option, because i really don't like what's on now.....
