SRT Ordering in Canada
 
I have been looking around Alberta for a SRT and all the dealers are charging too high a premium. The best deal I have so far is $79, 990 (MSRP $72k). They all have the same excuse that this is exclusive and they cannot order more than 2 a year.

Is this the same down in the the states as i have looked at a few threads and some of you guys can place your order and also get good deals or at least way better than what we have here.

I am just trying to understand if Chrysler is trying to keep the production down to a specific number for the year and cause this supply shortage which makes dealers charge ridiculous amount of premiums causing some folks to turn to other options.

Find it in another province or order in another province. I got mine 2012 when they first came out end of 2011 from Toronto and I'm in BC. Lots of dealers wanted mark ups but there are still lots that will take msrp.

In Ontario, they charge MSRP. I put in an order on April 14th, and still don't really have any updates on where its at. I was told its "scheduled for production" but don't have any proof! hah

And I'm not sure what the real story is with the 14 SRT's, but all the dealers I visited in the GTA told me there was limited production, and that they had to purchase x-number of regular vehicles in order to get allocated 1 SRT. Who knows if this is BS or not.

In any case, if you want one, a Toronto dealer will be able to help I'm sure, and sell it at MSRP (or a little less - I got $1K off MSRP after some haggling)

Where are you in the province. My local dealer has a black one that I originally ordered coming in July. They will sell at MSRP. The dealer I found mine at has a white one coming. They will sell at MSRP, maybe even lower. You can PM for details if you like.

I am in Edmonton. What options did you order? I might be interested, although July seems very far off...but i might have to wait to get a good deal:). Thanks!!

Thanks, I will contact a few Toronto dealers.

Crestview Chrysler in Regina, SK had a white one on the lot last week. They're known to lowball in order to drive volume, but I couldn't say what they'll do on a limited availability unit.

Seeing as its early in the year and the salesman told me they had got in 3 (2 white and 1 black), either your dealer lied or they do low volume.

Brilliant Black with black chrome wheels, panoramic sunroof, luxury group II, high performance sound system, and trailer tow group is what I ordered and is coming to my local dealer in July.
