I couldn't agree more on the 5.0!

This was pretty much expected with the prices from '12/13.

You are absolutely right, Johnny. One could always hope though they remain the same or less. Lol!

A Mustang GT is a base car? lol They still sell like 10 V6s for every GT and probably 50GTs for every GT500 (90% of my statistics are made up on the spot)

I was also under the impression that SRT wasn't releasing any performance numbers and they were leaving it to the magazines to figure out. No reason this one won't be faster than all the rest. In stock trim I bet a couple guys see high 12s in good air.

I'd be less upset with the price if the quality and performance and above all else - dealer acknowledgement - followed suit. The dealers still have no idea WTF these things are, they just know they can take the buyer for a ride on the sale, but treat them like a base model customer when it comes to dealership service.

The sad part that's not the supercharged version that's rumored. Looking at 80-90k I bet.

I was hoping $75-79,000, but after seeing $72,000 optioned out I think you are right. $89,950 I'll say.

I bet this thread would not exist if the 2012-2014 SRT8 Jeep was faster than a BMW X5 M.

Oh, I think it would... but the sarcastic "thanks" would change to "wow, THANKS", and the thread would be full of compliments!

Not really sure what everyone is complaining the '13 Vapor & Alpine cracked the $70k mark & with all the improvements made to the '14's I feel they are very well worth the price they are charging. I would also bet money that the '14 will be a tick or two faster.

Base 62995
Rims 595
Sunroof 1595
Single CD 195
HK Audio 1995

Total $67375

Very reasonable & right in line with the '12&13's with all the new added features. That would be how I would build mine & even adding tow package is only another $1k. Still decently priced IMO.

This $hit again

If you don't like the WK2 for whatever reason(s) they make a WK1 for you....buy that

SRT is growing as a brand and there is no stopping that. If they want to compete with the Germans, or who ever else, they need more than just 1/4 mile times. The latest SRTs show this. Performance, luxury, features, technology, customization and options. Maybe they don't best a previous generation on a straight line drag, but compare everything else. The new SRTs are multidimensional, not just speed machines.
