I agree...With a touch screen...collision monitoring system...rear view camera...and all the "new" features he talked about in the Scat Pack car....not to mention dealers trying to get way over list...40K is unrealistic IMO.I hope that guy is right on the pricing. $27K to $40K? If $40K gets you a Scat Pack 6.4L with 485hp that's pretty sweet! Have to see it to believe it though.
Completly agree...I had to wait till April of 2010 to buy my RT becouse of "dealers" pricing. NO WAY was I paying 40K. All I wanted was the "look" of this car and the Hemi....I'm not into alot of features anyway so when a car that hadn't moved the way they wanted along with a slow sales month made their bottom drive-out under 33K...it was game on finally. Wasn't too happy having to pay the 1K extra at the time for the 6-speed...but liked the Inferno Red enough to overlook that. I'm hoping this will be how it goes for the Shaker 392 RT's in time but who knows. Color like you said may play into it too. Remember all the Furious Fuschia's that dealers couldn't sell??:4-dontknow:That's true. I remember when the Challenger first came out, I was looking at a 2008 SRT8 in Hemi Orange the the sticker said $42K I believe and the dealer wanted $48K because it was so rare and desirable, etc. I thought wow what crooks. I just looked at it and drove off. Even $42K at that time was out of my price range anyway.
Sometimes the dealers order too many of the "bold" color type cars and get stuck with one or two of them and then they sit a while and they're forced to start marking them down. I've seen quite a few of those on lots before where I'm sure you could bargain with them to get a decent deal on one.
Not many people will want to seriously buy a Sublime Green Shaker Challenger that gets bad mileage and sticks out like a sore thumb. I'm one that would love to buy one, but look at the cars on the road nowadays, they're all pretty tame in terms of paint color. So there could be some opportunities like that out there.
But more than likely these will sell like hotcakes at first. Once things cool off a bit some deals might pop up.
^ I'd have to agree with your estimate on pricing, that sounds more realistic to me. If there is a way to get a 392 in a Challenger for under $40K I'd be shocked. I'm guessing mid $40K range somewhere for those.I'm expecting at least a $1k increase over 2014 pricing. Maybe they have a bargain package on the SXT without touch screen, etc. to keep the entry level price low for advertising. And I could see the Scat Pack around $43k and maybe $45k with the Shaker. No way with all the new tech stuff and 8 speed the cost will be near the SRT Core
