Re: Just took delivery....2014 Redline Red Jeep SRT

Sorry to "hack" your thread... when I tried to order a 2014 white SRT8, the dealers were like, '14 SRT8's are not " 'orderable' and will never happen for a price below $68k with double pane roof and premium audio...so you gotta buy one of our existing models on site." Their current models are marked up to $75,000.

Why so high and why not orderable? I'm guessing the '14 SRTs are not in full production yet?

Oh yeah, got frustrated so we placed an Audi SQ5 on order

I will answer this on Scott's behalf... Your dealer was a turd and tried to steal your money. There are lots of people here who have ordered the 2014 SRTs. When your Q5 shows up you should race a SRT though, it spanked the Cayenne!

Re: Just took delivery....2014 Redline Red Jeep SRT

LOL ... right on. I just called the other dealer and they said they cannot order '14 SRT8s "at this time." I am assuming its on some hold till August. The $72-75k markup is just ridiculous. Their lowest priced SRT is $69k.

Washington state tends to have higher auto costs conpoared to other states, but how much is usually paid for a SRT8 with the double sunroof and premium audio?

I would not race the SQ5 against the SRT. SQ5 is a V6T going at 5.1 on the 0-60...so not as fast on the drag, but maybe faster slalom

There was a hold on orders, not sure if it has been released but I would say by the ones in our order track that they are still being built for order.

I know more about dealers than I know about the SRT, wait for Scott on that as he know more on the subject than anyone and has contacts with SRT directly so he can provide better answers on distribution.

Re: Just took delivery....2014 Redline Red Jeep SRT

Fair enough, thank you. The other issue I need to address is if i purchase the jeep elsewhere, how will I find a good jeep service department that would work with factory and dealership warranty services.

SRT has nothing to do with production runs of the Jeeps, that's all JNAP scheduling. Marlon works up there, see if there is any hold up on the SRTs. Milous would probably know as well.

Re: Just took delivery....2014 Redline Red Jeep SRT

allocations of SRT's may be full. You will probably have to wait for next allocation. If you put an order in....if this allocation is full....it will be added to the next. BUT...find another dealer. Go to driveSRT.com and search for an SRT certified dealer in your area. ANY dealer can service your SRT...but I would stick with the certified dealers.

Re: Just took delivery....2014 Redline Red Jeep SRT

Thank you Scott. Sounds like the dealer I went to hasn't been honest. He said he cant order now and should buy the cheapest for $69k ... then i came back and said well can it br ordered later, he responded I may need to wait till next year (assuming he meant next allocation). I don't believe it should be that long??

I went to the jeep.com site for 2014 and put in the options I wanted and it gave me $67,000 with sunroof and Harmon. Don't care for performance seats, wheels or tow.

Approx how much should I pay no more for?
