Orders have been open for 3 weeks almost. Word is starting to get out faster and faster. People's orders are changing to odd statuses and many stories are popping up of dealers playing games now with pricing and/or build priority.

Even if 400 of the biggest dealers in the USA get allocated 2, that only leaves 700 units for the remaining 2000 dealerships. By all means, give it a try, but do not be surprised if you are asked to pay a markup, a dealer has no allocation left, or there is only one allocation left at a dealer. Also, I believe Milous said the engine plant is the limiting factor on the production, it's not a case of "we'll just make more if we have the demand."

Re: See and compare the 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 colors here

Silly question, I'm in Australia where borrowing expenses ae very different to the US of A.
But why, when the interest rates are so very low there, would anyone want to tie up cash in the purchase of a depreciating asset? Surely that money could be better invested elsewhere?

Ok thanks!

Geesh you blokes have it good over there! We pay between 7.5 and 12.5% p/a depending on the method of the loan!

AND our JGC SRT8 will be between $90 and $105k (USD$99k - USD$115k)!

Marlin,
I would think because they are in either of 2 situations:
They don't have the know how or knowledge to get a return above and beyond the % interest they will be charged.
Or
They have so much money, that they need to spend it or face losing it to Federal or State taxes.

What %'s are you making on regular 5 year term investments?

we could probably start an entire new thread on this discussion.

A simple cash term deposit will net you somewhere around 4.5 to 5%, and more aggressive managed funds typically around 7% (a far cry from the 11%+ I was getting prior to the GFC sadly).

My buddy who lives near Chrysler snapped a Mineral Gray one on the highway. Not a very good pic, but he said it had M plates and 4 guys giggling at him as they sped past..

Re: See and compare the 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 colors here

after seeing that rear pic it does not have the WOW factor of the WK1 from the back. That not enough to change my decision on getting one though! with all these WK2 driving around we must be getting close to hearing something on true performance numbers!
