Buying a new 2012 I think is going to cause people to take a total bath. I just don't see it holding a value vs. what people will be paying for it. I see people IMO losing $15K driving it off the lot. But hey... that's just my opinion.

$15K.....NO WAY! This is a much better and higher quality vehicle than the wk1 SRT and it didnt lose its value like that. Also...the resale values of the 2011 WK2's has been excellent if thats any indication. Also....ChryCo hasnt had to offer any incentives, $10K off to move these vehicles. Also....the market will NEVER be flooded with 2012 SRT Jeeps to lower the value.

How is it better and higher quality?

Also, on resale WK2, KBB has private party price of a 2011 Overland Hemi at $36,000 -- this is a vehicle that had an MSRP of $45k+ and a price paid of $41k+. Trade in price is obviously worse than that even.

Also, Scott, the WK1 SRT "didn't lose its value like that" cause it was priced fairly from the beginning.

Its obvious just by the price increase that the materials and parts are better quality. Manufacturers dont have a dart board to randomly create the price. The WK1 had a shiesty interior. My door panels cracked within 5 months of owning it and I was NOT pleased. All sorts of thin plastic crap inside the WK1. Im glad they redesigned the WK2's interior, my 2011 Overland is amazing! I can literally tell you the difference is night and day quality wise. So yeah, thats my rant.

Absolutely agree with you Scott. Glad they hiked the price on the WK2 and made this beast a quality truck. I woulda paid $60K for a WK1 that had some better, higher quality materials. BOOM! I want my WK2 Santa

Does not matter, Scott. An overpriced vehicle will lose more value than a vehicle priced fairly. How do you not get that simple fact???

And, a Jeep/Chrysler vehicle....is still a Jeep/Chrysler vehicle regardless of how you price it.

For my, losing value isn't as much of an issue. I keep my cars for at least 6-8 years. I don't care about depreciation if I'm keeping it for a long time. The only reason I'm considering keeping my order on this greedily overpriced SRT is because it really looks like it's going to be an awesome car, and has every feature I could possibly want far into the future. My "top of the line" 04 WRX doesn't have any features close to what are in cars built today, and I'm still happy with it. (Actually, it makes me wonder if I even need any of the bells and whistles)

Re: Saw a GC SRT8 in person today

I have a WK and I never thought anything was wrong with the interior and no one that has ridden in it has either. :dunno:

Re: Saw a GC SRT8 in person today

Definately NOT the case with the WK2. Been there, seen it, sat in it.
