SRT 8 Price

I was just looking at dealer's inventories the other day and noticed a one local dealer was getting an SRT 8 in his inventory soon. What shocked me was the price.....$64,000.00. Yikes. I thought they were going to be priced in the 50's. Quite a jump I would say.

Yup, even the rear entertainment package is jacked up for no reason. It's a dumb option anyway

Totally. They screwed themselves by making it heavier than the old srt and it's $20k more. What a joke. That Trim is screwed for this gen.

I must agree with all of you. That is way to much for a Jeep with a big V8. Am very happy with my Summit with it's dinky V6.

Bought a used one!

My husband just bought a used 2010 SRT8. He had wanted a new one after I got my Summit - until the pricing got updated to the new $60K+ range. Jeep's line on the new pricing is that the new SRT8 competes with the X5, Cayenne & other luxury SUVs. I can't imagine that anyone looking to buy a Cayenne is going to look at the Jeep, though. We just got the 2010 last week & haven't had a chance to play with it, but he likes what little he has experienced.

Good choice on 2010 srt8. Yea totally...no one legitimately buying a cayenne is looking at a jeep. They got this all backwards at fiat (Chrysler).
