What makes you or anyone else think they arent selling? The number I see are outrageous.for a $90-100k vehicle. Name another vehicle that sells like it is.Why are people not jumping all over Trackhawks is it the price tag or is it you never buy the 1st year model?
Well...I know that jeep had planned to build 2500 or so and they far exceeded that in 3 months....I spoke to my friend that owns my local dealer as he brought up some perspectives from a dealers point of view.
The TH is not a mass appeal vehicle. "Fast and SUV" is a niche market. Most people that can afford a Trackhawk have multiple cars and one of them will be a high performance muscle or sports car.
Its price point is high compared to a Challenger Hellcat WB that many will find more appealing that its not a SUV. Jeep needs the TH to be ultra low production to demand its entry cost. If the market is flooded with them, the depreciation will be horrific. Then there is the GC SRT that many that want a fast SUV, will buy to satisfy that bay in their garage. The SRT will nibble away at the small demographic that wants a muscle SUV. $65K for a SRT is the real bargain as it stands above most of the competition that cost twice as much.
The Trackhawk is like the Demon. You dont need to be talked into one of these unique rides. You know you want one. Period.
The market I live in and the experience of past SRT/Ford SVT/Z06/Tesla releases.What makes you or anyone else think they arent selling? The number I see are outrageous.for a $90-100k vehicle. Name another vehicle that sells like it is.
The 90-100k in the region I speak of is not a big deal for a car if people really want it. 5000 units may be double the proposed production, but that is still peanuts for an entire year production number. I'd bet the NoVA/MD/DE/SoutheastPA Jeep dealers sell 5,000 Grand Cherokees a month combined. Put those 2 factors together plus the ease at being able to find inventory and you have a vehicle that may not be a "bad" selling vehicle for Jeeps profit on the model, but it does support a "bad" selling vehicle from a buyers desire/need.
LOL.....WhoTF is this guy??? Just about every "fact" you just tried to use is wrong LOL.I don’t think you are very intune with exactly how many SRT vehicles are sold per production year.
If they sell 5k Trackhawk this year, that will be considered a smashing success. If they sell 3k TH, it’s above what they predicted and probably will help the TH live at least another model year.
For the record, they sold less that 2k hellcats, challengers and chargers combined, in 2017. So, if we used your logic, the entire HC line was a failure from 2015 forward, because it’s a small percentage of over model sales.
And I also think it’s funny that you are drooling over a Durango SRT with a $20k +100hp engine option over the RT, but the $20k 200+hp engine option a TH charges over the SRT8 Jeep is outrageous.
LOL.....WhoTF is this guy??? Just about every "fact" you just tried to use is wrong LOL.
Go sit back down and come back when you're not so butthurt about your precious Trackhawk's comments.
Ahhh, the 'ol why are you here then retort. LOL, again, I've been here way longer than you. Ask Scott, because I like to bust his balls!!Lol... what ever makes you feel better about yourself.
So disinterested in a TH, yet here you are.
And yes, my bad, they built 3k challenger HC and 2k Charger version in 2017. I was completely off base, my apologies.
