Default Chat session with Dodge on Thursdays price announcement

FYI- Here is a text chat session I had with Dodge. I enjoyed it but did not getting else newer that what you already know.

I understand that the GG tax is the reason for the price difference.

[b]Thank you for your patience. A Dodge Representative will be with you shortly.
You are now chatting with 'David'.

David: Hello, how can I help you with your Dodge Vehicle questions?

David: May I have your first name please?

you: Hi, I am a big Challenger fan and used to own one back in the 70's. I am also a moderator on one of the major Challenger websites. Why the price difference on the dodge.com website vs. the press release. About when do you anticipate the price on the manual versions? What engine will it have in it? What about the MDS feature on the bigger engines like a 6.4L,6.5L? What year will the LY platform come out?

David: Hi. Currently all of the available Challenger information is on the website. We have not received any updates beyond that information at this time, but as we come closer to the Production version being shown at the Chicago Auto Show on February 6, 2008 we will receive additional updates on the Challenger.

David: Are you currently signed up for Challenger Updates?

you: Will it have an High Definition Radio with a 20Gb HD?

you: Yes I am signed up.

you: With this price release I did not get an update via email. Why?

David: Where are you seeing a price release for the Challenger?

David: The website currently shows me "pricing available soon."

you: The press release says $37,995 but the dodge.com website says $40,095 which is a $2100 delta.

David: Thank you for waiting. I'll be with you in just a moment.

David: That price you are seeing on the website is an MSRP for a Limited Edition Challenger SRT8 which can be ordered as of December 3, 2008 through your local Dealer. It's not the MSRP for the Challenger in the various trim levels it will be released in, just for the Limited Edition SRT8

you: Yes but why the delta price on the website vs. the press release?

you: How many of the Limited edition will be made and is it only an automatic transmission?

David: I don't have any updated information on the Limited Edition SRT8 except for what is currently on the website. I can inquire as to the discrepancy between the Press Release and the Website if you would like and call you back when I have an answer on that.

you: Please do as it doesn't make any sense to me.

David: The website was just updated today, and any information updates we would receive are probably enroute to us.

you: Will you try to limit the price gouging from the dealer on this limited edition?

David: Were you able to talk to your local Dealer about what information they have received yet? They are the most up to date source of information on vehicle availability.

you: How would you like to contact me to let me know why the price difference?

you: The dealers know nothing at this time. I think there is a time lag. Since I am a moderator I know more than they do. Go figure.

David: Let me take down your contact information and send a request for information upwards and I can call you back with answers to your questions on Monday.

David: Your email and zipcode would be great as the escalation is submitted with a full name and zip code. Better still would be a mailing address. If my Team Leader can get an answer on Saturday would you like me to ask her to call you back that day with it since I am off this weekend?

you: Is there anything else you can tell me other than the press release. I understand there might be a new family of engines etc.

David: OK, give me a moment I want to make sure I am asking the questions you want to have answers for so I want to reflect them back to you.

David: I made it easier, I cut and pasted all of your questions into the request for information.

David: At this ti

Definitely spoken like a true PR guy (or a politician running for office, can't decide which lol).

Pretty interesting, though. How do you get to be a part of those chats?

Either way the letter "R" follows the letter "P." Think there is a coincidence?

Thanks for sharing that Jeremiah, this limited edition SRT-8 sounds interesting. Do you think it will have the larger engine possibly?

I certainly hope it get a 6.4L or 6.5L with MDS and VVT. It is all about HP.
