Buyer Ignorance? Thanks for the warm welcome? I was just unaware Dealers make little to no money on these cars. For instance If i go to BMW and look at a 65k car they are going to give me a price near 59k no problem. Just simple misunderstanding that these car's invoice is close to their MSRP. I just figured that this being a premium vehicle that the Dealer's would be making a premium profit.

Relax I was just kidding! Some dealers do mark it up but the price would be in the 70K range. Most of the time they can't sell them and have to drop their price in the end.

No problem, I just wish dealing with sales people/dealerships was an easier process.

Lets make this easier on you. Where are you? And what exactly are you looking for?

Dealers do what they have to. If it sits on there lot they have interest payments. If you are ready to actually order one, I have a guy who will sell it for invoice and he will cut 500 into his holdback. That will still give him a nice profit and he dosen't have to sit on it. PM me if you are interested, if not please don't waste my time, just say'n

I found a 2013 mineral gray on autotrader, fully loaded, with 5k miles for $57k. There are a few brand new 2013s for under $60k.

Bottom line, it's exactly as predicted. The market determines the price, not the maker or the dealer. After the buzz wore off, these are all over the place. There are a lot of used for sale and a lot of new for fair prices. A brand new loaded is worth about $60k IMHO. The prices are all over the place. Some dealers are asking $70k!

I don't expect there to be a whole lot of buzz surrounding the 2014 either. It will be short lived and then prices will settle. The SRT Jeep is a niche vehicle, it will never be a BMW or Mercedes, nor do I want it to be. The people who jumped ship to have the newest horse in town are putting theirs up for sale and going back to the German sleds. I know two separate people in Houston who have already done this.

It's gonna be the same thing with the new Viper.

I am from a small town and my local Chrysler dealer doesn't sell the volume of the larger auto malls to make up for selling at a loss. Also you don't see 30 of the SRT 8's just sitting around.. Dealers like to have products like them in their show room to attract people to the dealership and if they dont want to pay 65K for an SRT maybe they will buy something else..

Just my .02
I'm friends with a former Chrysler dealer in the Houston area, they never made their money on new cars. They make the big bucks on service and used.
