Re: Poll: What to do now?

That pricing is whacked. How could the more luxurious 300 b cheaper than the charger?
Plus chrysler just dropped the wk2 base price by almost $2k. I can't believe the ship jumpers here. Unreal.

Re: Poll: What to do now?

If one assumes for the moment that these new price thresholds are accurate, we're talking a 20% price creep from prior guidance and relative pricing compared to the Overland.

Again, IF this is true, you would be mistaken to expect lubrication.

Re: Poll: What to do now?

Considering I got about 19% off of my 98 Grand Cherokee and also on my 05 Grand Cherokee, I'd say the higher invoice pricing and lack of rebates and fact that consumers are buying these $40,000 + Grand Cherokees at a time of a stagnant economy that picture applies to almost everyone buying a new car.

Re: Poll: What to do now?

I just wonder if we will see the SRT8 GC in Australia now for under $100,000, as it was already rumoured at $90,000+.
If the SRT8 GC was $55k here, I would order one in a heartbeat, I might still do it if it is under 100 grand.

Gotta wait and see what invoice pricing is before making a final decision. Leaning towards canceling order. Hate to give dealer an easy $500 but that is what I agreed to early on. Perhaps they will be willing to turn it into a credit for services or merchandise.

Wk2jeeps.com now seems to confirm the new higher pricing.

Re: Poll: What to do now?

Plan B is to get whatever SUV my wife wants and leave the going fast to my modded EVO IX which is faster than the W2K SRT-8 anyways.

Re: Poll: What to do now?

I agree if you don't NEED an SUV there's way more affordable/tunable cars out there. Hence me looking so hard at a used M3. Then again, there's just something about this Jeep and I don't think I could drive an M3 down the road and see one of these Jeeps, it would just hurt me too much. So instead I will drive the new Jeep down the road and show some M3 owners what SRT is all about.
