Purchased my 2018 SRT couple of weeks ago. For a variety of reasons I wasn't really looking to buy just then. Prompting me to do so was a discount offered by a dealer up in Orange County. Personally, I think it a very good deal. However, I don't have anything to support my opinion other than what I think. Here are the numbers:

Window Sticker/MSRP: 51,985
Dodge Discount: 1,000
Dealer Discount: 8,318
What I Paid: 42,667

As you can surmise from the MSRP it's not a highly optioned car, which might be why the dealer discounted it so much. I won't be offended if I'm told what a paid isn't the deal I think it is. Thanks.

I would think it has plenty of goodies as it is an SRT and they come pretty well equiped. I think you got a very good deal. Enjoy it!

Congratulations on your SRT, you got a great deal! According to KBB, the average fair market purchase price for a 2018 SRT 392 (with standard options) is $49,107, with an MSRP of $50,590 and an Invoice Price of $49,471. You bought your car for about $7,000 under invoice. It looks like the dealer was anxious to move it off his lot to help clear inventory. Is it an auto or manual? Manuals are harder to sell.

I am kind of jealous. Back in 2008, there were no discounts. Because the cars were new and in hot demand, we had to pay MSRP or even MSRP plus a "market adjustment" to buy an SRT.

All that matters is what you think.


If you have the color and options that you wanted, then the car is a "good deal". Enjoy the beast!

Welcome to the forum. Congratulations on the SRT!!! Awesome car. Not much to add. Now, you got REAL close to 20%
off. On a current model car. And the top dog of the 6.4s! I don't see them that deeply discounted. Usually the Scats..... like mine. So I say, Good Get!

It is a manual, which is what I wanted. Couple of years ago when I went to sell my 6 speed 2010 R/T I learned not many want a 6 speed. Took me a while to sell it even though is was in excellent condition. Everyone is different, but I get bored driving an automatic.

Considering I'm paying closer to $49k for an 18 (very lightly optioned, M6, tech package and red seatbelts); you got a smoking deal.

I had to custom order because there want a M6 within a thousand miles.

That’s a great deal! Congrats! Yes M6s are hard to find. I bought my SC used though 2015 with 18,000 miles and M6 was the only reason I bought it not too many people realize the M6 tranny is the TR6060 which came in the GT500s for sure and Vetts I believe.
