The trade in would have only saved me $2k in tax. So I'll still be better off selling my self at the 5k more.
Good luck to anyone else. After driving the car and knowing I'm not paying any interest or payments until May, I'm pretty happy!
Interesting, I also "was" a Jeep GC SRT owner. I did make the deal on the trade for the SVR although I thought I could have got more for my Jeep. In my case I had a 2015 with 77K miles (they claimed it was high mileage). The only options on the SRT were Black Chrome Wheels, Sunroof & Tow hitch. I got 32K trade but I gained some ground on a extended warranty at a reduced cost and they cut the rather expensive dealer fees in half. Combined with the $2500 off and 0 percent I was satisfied with the whole deal. I avoided having to buy a set of tires for the Jeep by selling now, as they were due for replacement soon as well as the battery and serpentine belt.
I should warn my fellow SRT owners looking to switch to an SVR that the Jeep UConnect System and other electronics are superior to the SVR.
Losses include the number of radio presets on the display, the easy entry/exit feature, favorite songs/artists, and auto start on the fob, & the ability to have your display preferences in the center dash area remembered (I like to leave it showing tire pressure). I don't like the fact that it does not remember that I want auto start/stop defaulted to"off". Other small items not on the SVR are an active oil life monitor that shows how soon to expect to need an oil change and the trip computer does not seem to be there with average/instantaneous MPG (I could be wrong on the last one).
On the positive side I like the SVR power folding mirrors and the meridian stereo is superior to the base SRT stereo. The SVR engine note is also great! The biggest plus of the SVR is it is ~1000 lbs lighter than an SRT. This adds up to faster 0-60, higher top speed, greater fuel range, & better fuel economy. Other goodies are a better Adaptive Cruise Control System (haven't tested this yet) and a much nicer interior than a base SRT. I also like the factory tow hitch setup on the SVR better. The SVR has a higher crash safety rating than the Jeep GC SRT (especially for the passenger). Based on the climate where you live, the optional SVR heated windshield may be a plus.
Mitigating factors for some of the above losses are: You can use 2 seat/wheel position memory settings to create you own easy entry/exit (you just have to push the appropriate memory button).
There are less radio presets available on the screen but you can have many more presets than the SRT in memory and you can access them using the steering wheel control. You can advance through the menus to get tire pressure data while driving. It just doesn't seem to let you make that the default setup on startup.
Auto Start is available on a cell phone App.
I hope the helps my fellow SRT fans. When the next generation Jeep GC SRT comes out I may switch back.
