September 2013 SPC News
By Rita Kueny
Last month, the Suburban Purchasing Cooperative (SPC) announced an $868.00 price increase on the 2014 Dodge Charger Police Chase Vehicle, along with execution of the second of three possible contract extensions. This week, program vendor Napleton Fleet Group notified the SPC that they were able to convince Chrysler Motors to reduce that amount by half for the SPC. Therefore, the vehicle will cost $22,180.00, down from the previously approved $22,604.00. Chrysler anticipates significant changes to the 2015 model year, so this pricing and the SPC contract will only be honored through the 2014 model year factory cut-off date, scheduled for late April or early May, 2014. For questions or additional information, please contact Bob Barr, 630-455-2911 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
