Re: Should I trade in my Over Land to SRT8 now?

A few weeks back I spoke with them about it and without even trying the dealer said invoice price and he'll give me $1000 of kick back money. I went in again last week and he said he'd split the kickback 50/50 so another $500. I had my Overland appraised with a trade in value of $34k. I only paid $41k so I don't think that was too bad.

That would be $56,306 - $34,000 = $22306 + TTL

I gave it some serious thought but decided that I'm gonna wait to see what the 2014 model brings. My reasoning was this:
1. I do not want to buy a new truck and have it depreciate 2 years when I drive it off the lot.
2. I know the 2014s will be "enhanced" in one way or another. I never really "loved" the new look of the SRT8 so I'm hoping the refresh will clean up the lines a bit.
3. I'm fairly sure the left overs in my area are not going to sell. Pricing will get better.
4. I really like the color white and after fapping to the pic below I figured I best wait.
Not to hi-jack, but where did these wheels come from? Proposed 2014 wheels? If not, what size are they, and where can I get a set?

Never mind, I saw that they are the one-off set for the one-lap vehicle.

Waiting another year+ to drive an SRT8 because of whatever minor changes might be looming is silly, IMO.

Any updates on the '14s will impact both the Overland and SRT8 resale value. Either way, I sincerely doubt the changes are anything severe (e.g. the headlight changes on the '07 to '08 model), so the dip won't be anything drastic. True, the Overlands are easier to move, but the SRT8 is very low volume, so demand will always be strong. And since you have such a relationship with this dealer, it's their problem to move once you trade-in.
Even at invoice minus kckback there is very little demand for the 2012 SRT. They are collecting dust and depreciating on dealer lots everywhere.

Yea... I hope the SRT guys hear the crowds cheering for this wheel. The current combo is lackluster at best.
