We're already seeing SRT8 owners unloading their cars for the '15 SRT & Hellcat. With the '15 6.4L R/T sticker starting at $38.5K, it'll be available off the lot at the end of the model year or a little later as a leftover for $32K.

Used SRT8 prices are gonna get sweet! :spineyes:
In April 2013 I bought a new SRT Challenger for $39,995. MSRP was $50,005. I traded it in May 2014 with 8,000 miles on it for a 2014 Dodge Charger R/T 100th Anniversary Edition. Cost me $106.00 total, cash...they put my SRT up for sale at $41,999 on the internet and sold it three weeks later. That's more than I paid for it 13 months earlier and it was new then. I don't know if they sold it for that price but probably close to what I paid originally. :dunno:
There are going to be some strange prices for cars being bought and being sold in the coming year and the next years to come. :woot: :blueblob: :eek:hyeah: :spineyes: Hang on to your hats, you ain't seen nufin yet!!!:banger::icon_biggrin:

The game changer is everything that FCA is offering on the '15 Challenger now & the prices at which they're being offered. The ability to buy a new base '15 6.4L R/T off the lot after markdowns at the end of the model year for $32K will hit SRT8 values... this is the same price at which '10 SRT8s have been selling, but I've already seen a few '11 models at this price since the pricing announcement of the '15 - they were holding steady at around $36K just prior to the announcement.

That's what I've noticed too. The used SRTs, and R/Ts that used to bring all the money aren't since Chrysler released the 2015 prices.

Prices are still holding firm in my area for used SRTs and other trims. I think once the 2015's start hitting the dealer lots, reality will set in and we'll see a price correction for all used Challengers. It's about time, because I've been patiently waiting for a long time. :icon_razz:

I haven't seen prices drop at all yet, but hopefully that happens soon. Too be honest though I was all set on a 2014 Core, but with the pricing on the RT Scat Pak I would have to get a screaming deal to go that direction now. I think the 8 speed auto is going to be a game changer.

They didn't offer any rebates or markdowns the last 4 yrs on SRT's; what makes you think they are going to offer a rebate or markdown on a 392 RT, which is basically an SRT Core with a changed name? While they might offer rebates on the run of the mill RT's and SXT's at the end of the 15 model year, it would be a healthy bet that they won't offer anything on the RT SP's, especially if they sell well at the beginning on the model year, which they appear to be set to do. You're dreaming for them to sell a brand new 392 at $32,000.

This. I think it will be a while before the market shakes out.

Kelly Blue Book is behind the curve on the Challenger. It tells me that the car I bought new in May for ~$26K has a trade-in value of $29, which I highly doubt.

I'm not sure if/how we can tell if the SPs are poised to do well. If you are basing it on the response of this forum, keep in mind, we are an insignificant number compared to the general car buying population, and we are enthusiasts who keep up with every little detail and every date. Heck, the sales manager and sales person in the dealership I was in this weekend never heard of a scat pack, neither has Average Joe car buyer.

And as a percentage of the car buying population, keep in mind not too many are in the market for a larger, RWD $40k car that gets less than impressive gas mileage.

I would expect after all the hardcore "gotta be the first on the block" orders are in, and winter starts to settle in, Dodge will throw some incentives on the table to stimulate the next wave of buyers.

I don't see prices coming down more then the usual normal depreciation of a Challenger as it gets a year older. And for those looking for a super deal, you may get a super deal on a used SRT8 that has a lot of miles on it or the one in a million deal that some one has to sell . But in general prices will remain steady.
The average Joe does not even know what a Hell Cat is or would never want such a car in the first place. Do I want one? Hell yes, but maybe next year when the dust settles and I will not sell my SRT8 at a bargain price.

Prices will remain steady once they adjust (drop) due to the new 2015 offerings.

What we're referring to has nothing to do with the Hellcat.

I don't plan on "unloading" my current SRT and betting on getting a Hellcat anytime soon. There may be a lot of people walking if they do that.

Hopefully I am wrong.

There's no doubt that with 2015 pricing of the 6.4L R/T & the added value features on the SRT, there'll be an effect on pre-owned R/T & SRT8 models. How much, remains to be determined, but it's already being seen in some markets. If/when owners offer their vehicles for sale, like with anything, they'll be held to market pricing if they wish to sell. :yesnod:

I paid 44k for my 2012 SRT; it's MSRP was 52k...just got a dealer trade in offer for 42k. I may pull the trigger on the SRT jeep. I'm sure the Hellcat will be 70k+ new.

It'll be interesting, without a doubt, but I could care less.

No intentions or plans on selling or trading my little old R/TC. I'll still love it to death, and it'll be my pride and joy ......................whatever the market value is.

To me...........priceless! :)

I don't think your going to see anything as dramatic as you might think. All vehicles depreciate.

I love my R/T 6M & the '15 interior & exterior don't do it for me... but damn a 6.4L R/T is tempting! :burnout:
