The factory will invoice at the NEW price. The dealer has to enter the claim paperwork info to get credited back for the difference.

That's not comforting news IMO. But thank you.

I have already emailed my dealer and he said I am price protected...so I am not worrying about that.

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

Step back and consider all that has happened. It is sophisticated manipulation of perception. Prices went up. Outrage ensued. "Price Protection" concept was born. Suddenly, original higher price looks like a value. Some of the buyers who were originally outraged then praised "price protection". Sad. Best response is to delay instant gratification en masse. No question prices would plummet as they should. Problem is we are an instant gratification society, so break out the $65k+....

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

Milous or Scott,

If you have a chance to track down what happens to those of us who did not order Luxury II package and HK Audio package we'd appreciate it. Is the price staying the same and we are getting the add-ons? Or, will the price increase to what the fully loaded price was prior to 8/10/11 and we get the add-ons? Or will it be produced as we ordered it at the originally quoted price?

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

from what Im told...you will get the Jeep as ordered as long as it was before 8/10 and it has your name listed as a sold order. Be sure to keep a copy of that "SRT internal memo" that Milous posted. That is not a press release and was only available to SRT management contrary to some statements.

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

I saw my Dad today briefly (retired Chrysler Mgmt) and we spoke of the new price on the WK2 SRT8. He literally laughed out loud when I told him the new Jeep was $66k. His next comment was "at least Jeeps hold their value".

I also told him I was buying a MB instead and for the first time in my life he did not try to give me a hard time for not buying a Chrysler Co vehicle. Especially when I told him I thought the cost of ownership was cheaper on the MB then on the Jeep.


To stay with the Jeep family I will pick up a Wagoneer late next year (my wife hates Durangos). Hopefully it won't be more than $50k, if they try to price it like the WK SRT8, I will buy an Escalade, Navigator or GL 550 instead.

Price Protection?
