The Overland has always been a bargain in it's market space. It's direct competition is the VW which is ~$12K more similarly equipped. Move up to the BMW or LR and the price difference for the same equipment and capabilities is closer to $20K. THAT is why it has been a runaway success for Jeep.

I'm starting to look at the X5 too. You can get a 5.0 turbo w/470 ft lbs of torque and a 7 speed tranny with a list of 69k for 63k (w/ Premium audio, adapt. cruise , etc included as with SRT).
After 3 years you would have a Jeep with no warranty or a BMW with a year left on it.

Which will be worth more then?

Re: NEW 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 wk2 base msrp 8/10

This is beyond a joke. Ralph is very proud of his so so vehicles. The Jeep is not a world beater, it used to be good value for the money.

One thing old Ralph is forgettting - service. If I buy a 65k vehicle I don't want the same level of service at the yahoo Jeep dealership.

BMW, Audi and Porsche service is first rate - and you are approaching that ground with these prices.

Again and the S4 with all wheel drive and 26mpg in this economy with bascially identical performance statistics, 4 doors, free maintanence and Audi award winning service...for 10k less....nope you can't tow (and with a 1k tow package and 10k in savings you can get a super great tow vehicle for 11k)

Get real Chryco -

I agree but Mercedes/Audi/BMW are are a full line of luxury/sport cars and the service shows, Chevy has the 120K ZR1 and you still have to take it in where they service Aveo's. I think at this price point, while there is not another SUV that competes for this price, people are going to go somewhere else, for 70-72k you can get a fully loaded M3 or a base CLS550. I for one am will never pay over 60k for a Jeep, Ford has the Raptor that is a specialty SVT truck and it's not much more than a regular loaded F150, SRT is just getting greedy and hopefully it backfires on them, and that's coming from a Chrysler fan.

Re: NEW 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 wk2 base msrp 8/10

That is just plain ridiculous. Who in their right mind would pay $62K base price for a Jeep? There is not $20K in extra's over a base overland, no way in H***! Chrysler is creating the next recession...

Re: NEW 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 wk2 base msrp 8/10

The SRT "brand" and Chrysler can go fvck themselves! I am out! I can't believe what they are doing to their base. I bought the WK1 SRT when they first came out and loved it. There is no way in hell I can possibly enjoy driving in a $62K BASE Jeep.

FVCK YOU GILLES! FVCK YOU CHRYCO! I HOPE SRT DIES A SLOW PAINFUL DEATH!

I am even pissed now that I recently bought a Dodge vehicle. I may never buy a Chryco product again over this joke.

I plan to hold on to my 08 GC with lifetime powertrain warranty even when the damn thing is rusting out so I can gouge them for as many trannys and engines as I possibly can!

Sorry Scott, but, yes it was. I've been around the Jeep SRT community since the beginning, and quite frankly I am disgusted at what is going on here. If you and others wish to blindly follow a company that so blatantly rips its customers off, then I feel sorry for you.

It is a shame what is going on here, it really is.

EDIT - I'd also like to add that Gilles pointing out that they want to keep these exclusive by only building 3,800 units per year......WHAT A JOKE! They NEVER during the entire run of the previous gen produced more than 3,257 units (first year 2006 total). Soooo, this model will be even less exclusive then the previous gen at a handsome markup. Too funny! http://www.wkjeeps.com/wk_srt8_distribution.htm

Re: NEW 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 wk2 base msrp 8/10

I know your frustration and I can sympathize.....

But this is what the SRT group has chosen to do and theres probably nothing we can do. I expect an influx of completely new forum members when these hit the streets...just like with the 2011 non-SRT's. I wish it wouldve worked out that some of the old crew wouldve purchased a new 2012. I have respect for all you guys for what youve done with the 2006-2010 Jeep SRT8 platform.
