Hahahahaha JK that was totally uncalled for, just couldn't pass up the chance to use this photo. But that's definitely not going to happen on any WK2 SRT8 anytime soon considering dealers are still marking them up 10K from the MSRP.

I don't think that's happening anymore. We saw those crazy dealer markups back in December, I'm not sure any dealer is still marking them up that much......but I could be wrong.


Who on this site paid a premium? From what I have heard people are paying below sticker?
If anyone paid a premium, then they are crazy. Below sticker is now common from what I hear. I'm getting mine just a shade over invoice.

Probably 2013/2014 you'll see deep discounts, especially if they upgrade the powertrain, which they are sorely lagging behind the "competition" in.

They don't necessarily have to upgrade the powertrain as so much as decreasing the weight. Besides, upgrading the 6.4 is probably going to add another $7K-8k to the already high sticker price.

Not trying to hijack the thread, but really ?$14k? How?
Dealership going under. They had bought the Jeep from another dealer right before going under. I did have to talk them down as they were NOT aware of 2/3 rebates at the time. It's funny, I still have paperwork in the glove box...


They are getting an $11-30K discount!!!............ off a Porsche, BMW, and ML63.:lol:
That's the truth. Funny thing is, I haven't heard from any owners on here that came from that competition.

A local dealer here in denver colorado has a black '12 for $10k over msrp...total=$72K. He said that is the "norm" and that all dealers are marking the '12's up right now. I'd love to know where the deals are...I'm itchin to get into the new srt. Any recommendations?

It's very difficult to decrease weight on an existing platform. They have to work with the current platform, which is why the WK2 is so much heavier than the WK1 in SRT guise. The two platforms are very different when it comes to weight. To drop weight in a WK2, they would need to change materials on the body and that would cost LOTS of money.
I think Winston is referring to the transmission more than anything else, where an upgrade would be very nice!

You're probably right.....but if you want 8-sp AT, 500+ hp V8, better NAV, and other goodies, get ready for a $75K-80K Jeep.

Automakers usually don't change only 1-2 things for a given model year.....they usually change a whole slew of things so that they can charge more. :)

I'm saying that if the transmission gets an upgrade or the engine gets a boost in power, that the models that DONT have that upgrade will be deeply discounted. There's at least 6-12 months of overlap between the previous model year and the up-coming model years until the inventories are depleted.

This is true with any new brand of car. Just before a re-design or an upgraded model is introduced, the dealer usually heavily discounts the out-going model to get rid of inventory. However, since the SRT is a niche product and very few dealers keep significant numbers in stock at any given time, don't expect them to be "giving them away" even if an upgraded model hits showroom floors.....which I personally don't think will happen for at least another 2-3 years.

Kim your logic is sound but the data out there doesn't support that conclusion. This thread was started by the OP on the premise that the WK1s were deeply discounted, several places, through several different model years post 2007. The current stocks of other "niche" vhiecles, CTS-V's, various european brands, are deeply discounted. There's no evidence that would suggest the WK2 won't follow suit. Its not stocked or in any lower numbers, nor is it desered in any greater demands than the other high performance niche vehicles.
