I have been looking around for the last year at what I want to buy, an SRT8 Core, or an R/T with the scat packages. After test driving a used yellow jacket and a R/T Classic, I finally decided that I am going to order a new SRT8 Core. The dealer told me that he heard it may be fall before the Scat packages are released.

Ok, so I wanna know what you Core owners paid for yours. I have seen people say the invoice for a 42000 core was 40500 or so but I'm wondering what was the final selling price. I also see some people saying they paid 4000-5000 below the invoice for a R/t but nothing more about the Core.

You will be able to get a Core this summer provided you can find one to your specific color for close to what a loaded R/T Classic would cost. The R/Ts will have rebates, whereas SRT usually does not. Yes, it is possible to price a R/T Classic the same as a Core's MSRP. I hear this is the last year for the Core as well. I am guessing come summer with anticipation of the 2015s coming, mid 30s is what they will sell for before taxes. The Core's don't have the options/equipment like a 50K SRT, so dealers don't have as much wiggle room on them compared to your more option inflated SRTs.

2014 Core

I bought my Black, Vapor wheel, Automatic, Sun Roof, NAV equipped Core Model for $41,932 with gas guzzler, dealer prep etc. Sticker was $45,000 something. Go figure if you get a 2013 Core it's the first year, and 2014 is the last year, awesome! I've said it before, I like all of them including the SE, so I won't cut down a premium model or R/t. I bought almost exactly what I wanted and since it was off the lot I did pretty good. It was built 8-5-13 and it showed on the lot about the 20th, I picked it up the 24th. Get what you want, and enjoy it!

Similarly I bought my 2014 black, sunroof, automatic, convenience group, etc., with a sticker of $45.5K for $40.7K. Not the best deal I've ever received but pretty good for a 2014 Core. If I'd been more patient I am pretty sure I could have got a 2013 SRT8 in the same ballpark or a slightly used one for less. The Core's a great car, I would also consider a slightly used CTS-V.

Dealer I got my Bee from still has the Plum 2013 Core on the lot I was looking at. 44k sticker and they wont come down much on the price for the everyday Joe that comes to the dealer. That's why they still have it. They have had it for about 9 months now.

Here is a pic.........

Thanks everyone for your help on this. I'm going to talk to the dealer Friday and figure out what I'm going to do. Just wish I knew that they were ending the Core this month!

Thanks for all the advise. I picked up my brand new '13 Plum Crazy Core for 36,500. Only options were the Sirius radio and vapor wheels, and they gave me quite a bit more for my '11 SE than every other dealer offered. Sticker was 41,880. I did have to drive about 7 hours, and at the end of the trip there was over 500 miles on it, but I definitely believe I got the best deal that I could have. I couldn't be happier with the PCP also!
