I have respect for all you guys for what youve done with the 2006-2010 Jeep SRT8 platform.
Thanks Scott, and the feeling is mutual.

I COULD afford to purchase one, BUT I just don't feel that it makes any sense (especially in the finacial shape we as a country currently find ourselves) to purchase an SRT Jeep that is nearly $20K more than the outgoing model when the other trim levels dropped in price compared to their outgoing counterpart.

They really think they are a BMW/Benz/Porsche dont they? Not knocking the quality, but you cant just jump up a rung that abruptly without some prior notice and the proper PR in my mind. Not saying a company cant do it, Chrysler is doing it well, but with this SRT Jeep, they ****ED UP BIG TIME!

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

Contacted my dealer in regards to price, price protection, Affiliate:

Stated he will still sell at Affiliate so long as it is accepted, HOWEVER, he stated an Affiliate price of $59,xxx. He said that he pulled up my POC and "that's what the price showed." In other words, my vehicle ordered on June 9 DID NOT show the price protected number, it showed the NEW pricing as of last week. He said let's wait until the vehicle is built and invoiced and go from there. He was very understanding in the concern many of us have with the price being much higher than expected.

Milous, in your professional opinion do you foresee this price protection being done correctly on the invoice from factory?

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

Went to my jeep dealer as a last ditch effort for the SRT8. my msrp went from ~61k to ~64k with the Aug 10th increase, which he had no clue about. I told him i should be price protected, which he knew nothing about. he priced the car with tax and fee at ~69k. while he was doing the math i asked him for coffee and he said they have a coffee machine in service i can use. i then said i wanted starbucks. he said we dont offer that. i gave him a dumb look on my face and replied if you are going to sell me a 70k truck treat me like i'm spending 70k. send someone to starbucks and buy me a drink. he laughed!

sounds like the system is currently NOT showing the price protected people. Hopefully dealer invoicing does it and they don't rely on the dealer to simply sell to the customer at the lower price and get repaid via entering the code after the sale. I can see dealers just saying "this is the price I have, I don't know anything about any other earlier price you say you have."

I understand that, but that is after the sale. I don't think dealers are even going to know about the price that is "protected" and should be paid by us early order folks unless the factory invoices it appropriately. My concern is it will be a war of words between us using the info here and the dealer with what is on their screen.
