So the new MINIMUM BASE MSRP will be $61,785
words cannot even explain the thoughts racing through my head on this info.

What makes it even more frustrating? It's obvious no matter what anyone says, or does....even if it was to call corporate and speak to a head honcho directly, somehow.....they wouldn't give a crap and would blow our $0.02 off.

Re: Isn't there anything we can do collectively......

Is the Jeep the only SRT to get a price increase or did the Charger and 300 get them as well I wonder.

All got an increase, but the 300 and Challenger were within a "typical" range. Charger got the second highest to the Jeep, something like $7-8k.

Thanks Milous. I'll be sending Chrysler my cleaning bill because I just threw up all over my keyboard and desk.

I think he was asking if there was a new price increase on the 300, Charger and Challenger...Not the initial price increases.

Re: Isn't there anything we can do collectively......

Called my dealer today and told him I need confirmation that he will be able to get the jeep. He said he had his rep wright a letter to his boss.
Also asked about the price he went to check and the price was not there but told me went to BX status but I was in Bx and went back to BG. Would any body know if BX means a good thing.

BX is good. Basically means "order has passed edits, available for scheduling".

I put my name on an SRT8 that my dealer had already ordered in June. I gave him a deposit and my name shows up on their system next to a specific Black SRT8 w/ vin. I didn't "personally" factory order it. Am I still protected???

Re: Isn't there anything we can do collectively......

Subject: SRT8 Grand Cherokee Pricing Announcement

Reaction to the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 has been overwhelmingly positive. Its unique craftsmanship and superlative powertrain have catapulted it past its closet competition. Our most powerful Jeep ever, the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 runs from 0-60MPH in 4.8 seconds with the all-new 6.4-liter HEMI V8 estimated at 470HP and 465 lb-ft of torque. This powertrain performance is only further complemented with the head-turning racing style and outstanding ride handling attributes. Given this level of performance and style, the value proposition remains extraordinary as compared to European competitors offering products with MSRP’s starting at $85,000.

Dubbed the “Ultimate Performance SUV”, we are committed to exclusivity by restricting our production to exactly 3,800 vehicles for the 2012 model year in the US. We realize demand is likely to exceed this production number but we are serious about protecting the Grand Cherokee SRT8's value in the short and long term. Furthermore, take rates on both the Luxury Group II (AHN) and the benchmark performance of the SRT High Performance Audio system (AJE) from Harman Kardon have remained exceptionally high.

Both options are now automatically included with every order. In addition, the following pricing actions are effective August 10th, the Luxury Group II will have an MSRP of $4,495 and the SRT High Performance Audio system will now have an MSRP of $1,995.

Bona fide sold orders obtained by you prior to August 10th will be price protected provided that:

THE CUSTOMER NAME APPEARS ON THE FACTORY ORDER PRIOR TO SHIP DATE (KZ); the vehicle is delivered to the ordering customer within (10) calendar Days after being received by the dealer (X date) and the sale is reported to Chrysler Group LLC under the DealerCONNECT system within 2 calendar days of the sale.

You must claim price protection by inserting the price protection program number on the Exception Claim Entry Screen when reporting the sale. Use program number 27EC1.

Good Selling,

Ralph Gilles
President & CEO - SRT Brand and Motorsports
