Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT being discontinued?

Like most of us, I love my 2014 SRT. I made the progression from a 2012 V8 Overland. I was planning on a new SRT when the model had a true revision or a supercharger. If it doesn't happen, SRT and Jeep will be losing a loyal customer. There will always be new, desirable vehicles to chose from. Mine just may not be an SRT. There is always AMG or an M series. More money less value, but you only live once. If this comes to pass and Jeep and SRT part ways it will be truly sad and disappointing. It makes me wonder what the brain trust is up to.

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT being discontinued?

Funny story...

At the dealer today to get the trans TSB worked on, and they were all over it when I pulled in the bay, and the one senior service guy, says, yep the jeep SRT survived... I said "did it?, I heard mixed messages... ". He was like oh, no, just at a meeting yesterday offsite ... Best srt seller ever, it is staying..."

Went to pick it up and a sales guy comes out and is like," man love your jeep, too bad last of them... " I said, why so... He said " they are killing it only SRT will be dodge... So you have a collectors model...." I said I have heard mixed messages... He replied, no management at jeep is clear it is going away..."

Same day, same dealer, different stories...

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT being discontinued?

Arguably, this is not the best way to sell Jeeps

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT being discontinued?

Déjà vu? Chevy cancelled the Camaro in 2002 due to poor sales. It was resurrected in 2010 as a result of internal GM and external customer lobbying. Maybe FCA will resurrect the Jeep GC SRT sometime in the future, if there's enough interest within Chrysler & the Jeep community. Maybe ...?

I have a sneaky suspicion that offering the SRT on the Journey & Dart will kill the SRT performance brand. Rumour has it that Alfa Romeo will become FCA's new performance division.

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT being discontinued?

Lets say they do kill off the Jeep GC SRT.
Is there anything stopping them creating a performance name brand for Jeep.
Stupid as it would be to have create a new brand image, but there is currently nothing on offer from Dodge to really replace the Jeeps. The Durango would be the closest, but still not the same. And this is a massive cash earner for them.

Then again, they could just flip on this idea later.
Jeep GC SRT = Classic Coke.

Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT being discontinued?

I'm pretty sure they will still do the GC SRT but not call it SRT (so "powered by SRT" or some similar crap). Same as with the new Challenger.

They won't cancel it completely because

1. It's SRTs biggest seller
2. Performance SUVs are booming...look at how many cars there are in the sector: ML63 AMG, X5M, Cayenne Turbo, Range Rover Sport V8 etc. FCA would be crazy to not want a piece of that pie (and they won't be eating any of that pie with a Journey SRT lol).

As a newcomer to SRT I'm not really invested in the whole heritage of the brand so when it comes to replacing my GC, "powered by SRT" suits me fine. I'm more bothered by the actual quality of the car. If it's still a bad ass HEMI and not some God forsaken turbo 6 cylinder (Hello you numbskulls at BMW) I'll be happy
