In addition to the employee pricing, customers will be eligible for cash discounts of up to $3,500 for 2009 model year vehicles and up to $6,000 on 2008 model year vehicles. Chrysler Financial is also offering zero percent financing for up to 48 months.
Some of the prime offers include $1,000 cash back plus employee pricing of $36,086 on the 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8, or employee pricing discount of $2,777 off the MSRP of the Challenger R/T, when combined with $1,000 cash back (depending on region), gets a retail price of just $28,703. For those interested in four doors instead of two, there's $4,500 total cash back on the 2008 Charger SRT8 off the $40,015 MSRP for a final sticker price of $35,515. The 2009 Charger SRT8 gets a similar deal at $3,000 cash back and a final price of $38,120.
The new Employee Pricing Plus Plus program started on the 26th of January. A wide range of Chrysler vehicles, from pickups to sedans, are also included in the incentives program.
Chrysler's sales have been struggling of late, with numbers falling 53% in December. However, the latest announcement, plus a previous ad campaign thanking America for the federal money, has angered many who consider the carmaker to be focusing too much on the short term and not looking at its future viability.
The announcement of the alliance with Fiat has also ruffled a few feathers, with Democrat senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey urging president Barack Obama to require Chrysler to repay any federal bailout money if Fiat takes a controlling stake in it.
