Thinking of pulling the trigger on a '17 SRT

Hey Guys,

Long time jeep owner here and I am thinking that this go around I might pull the trigger on a '17 SRT and trade in my '14 Summit. I spent some time with the new SRT this afternoon and it was flat out amazing.

I just had a couple of questions for the SRT community here.

For those that have purchased recently, what % below invoice was common? I can get 1% below invoice with my work discount. When pushed to come down below 1% (I didn't let them know I had a work discount) they barely came down off of the Sticker price.

Does anyone have thoughts between the standard and upgraded leather interior? The one I saw today had the upgraded leather, it was nice but not sure it is worth the 4k up charge.

I did reach out to Koons to see what they can do but have not heard back yet.

Just incase some are wondering, I am looking at a Black/Black SRT with Pano, Upgraded Audio, Tow package and the forged carbon black wheels.

Thanks in advance feller JGers!
-Mashie

Welcome!

5-7% under invoice is a great deal. I believe koons offers 5%.

Thanks Scott, I thought they could go below 1% but on their thread they list the SRT and Hellcat as "exception" to the 5%. I sent them an email so we will see.

Re: Thinking of pulling the trigger on a '17 SRT

I got 2% below invoice. Maybe could have done better but it's enough to make me happy.

I got the Laguna Leather package. Not cheap, but worth it in my opinion.

Re: Thinking of pulling the trigger on a '17 SRT

See, I'm the opposite; I've always HATED the Laguna leather interiors. I don't think they LOOK as nice as the Nappa leather and suede, and I don't think they hold up as well either.

Plus you don't get the "too cold in the winter/too hot in the summer" effect.

You couldn't PAY me to take a car with this package let alone ask me to pay $7,000 for it (yes, that's how much it is in Canada).

That's my PERSONAL opinion, your results may vary.

Also, you can see that a fully loaded Jeep SRT in Canada is $90,115 + 13% tax!

Re: Thinking of pulling the trigger on a '17 SRT

The Laguna interior is incredible imho. The new "full wrap" is just a nice touch eliminating a lot of the plastic in the standard interior. Keep in mind, the upgrade is actually $7k...you have to get the HK sound along with the full leather.

I never liked the laguna interior in that orange/tan color and black leather is too damn hot.

Yep I looked at the Laguna all black yesterday, it was extremely nice and soft but I was thinking the tufts or puffs that are on the bolsters of the seats and the doors was a bit much.

They did not have a Suede/leather for me to compare it to, for those with this combo, does the suede feel too much like traditional cloth seats?

Whatever SRT I end up with the HK audio is a must so I have already factored that into the price.


One more question that came up, what is the difference with the Brembo breaks/roters that come on the SRT vs the High Performance disk brakes that are a $1295 upcharge?

Re: Thinking of pulling the trigger on a '17 SRT

The suede is very soft and velvety...but very durable.
