#692 of 892 Will 2010 GCs get bigger rebate?
Aug 01, 2010 (3:27 pm)
I'm considering the purchase of a 2010 Grand Cherokee. I guess I'm in the minority in that I prefer the 2010 model to the 2011 (I won't go into all the reasons why). The current deal I can get on a 4wd Laredo with nothing but red paint is $28,100 after my $4,000 rebate. The 2011's are selling at about MSRP, but I expect them to go down later in year and probably get some kind of rebate by January 2011. I'm hoping to get an even better deal on a 2010 ... thinking that Chrysler/Jeep will want to shift them out of the dealers lots. The current $4,000 rebate seems to end on Aug-31. Should I gamble on the 2010 rebate getting even higher in September? Will there be much choice in 2010s available in September?

How much do you want to gamble?
Look at your region's 2010 inventory. I know that my local dealer has no more 2010's. It sounds like you want a Laredo with not too many options, so unless you're willing to accept more options (and pay for them), you're better off buying now.
#694 of 892 New Incentives on 2011 GC

Got a call from the dealer we are working with to say there will be new incentives on 2011 GC coming out tomorrow.

I'm going to have to gamble ... which is OK with me.
It seems that, come January 2011, one will be able to buy a 2011 GC for roughly the same price as you'd pay for a 2010 GC today (factoring in rebates). I'm not about to pay the same for a 2010 right now. I'd need to pay a least a couple thousand less for the 2010, given that the media says the 2011 is so much better.
I'll wait for September and see if the 2010 GC rebates have improved. Then I can check to see what the inventory of 2010s are like.
If the rebate isn't improved, or the stock isn't there ... then no biggy, I'll just buy a different midsize SUV.

Sounds good. It sounds like a good plan and you're aware, and ok, with the risks. Good luck. Come back and tell us what you ended up getting.
FWIW, I've heard everybody say how much better the 2011 is compared to the 2010.

I would be very surprised if you can buy a new 2011 next January for what you can buy a comparable 2010 right now, but who knows?
It's worth a shot if you want to wait. I just wouldn't count on that.

I agree ... it is just conjecture on my part. But "I" think it is a high likelihood.
RIght now the 2011 GCs are selling for close to MSRP. This is due to their newness on the market and taking advantage of the fact that some people want to be the first on the block to have a new model vehicle. Come January 2011 I fully expect the 2011 GCs to be selling at a "normal" price ... meaning a couple hundred over invoice. Then you consider that mid-size to large SUVs are becoming less and less popular. Who knows where gas prices are going etc. So, come January 2011 I also expect that Jeep/Chrysler will need to have a rebate in order to assist the sales. Now ... what will that rebate be ... $2,000, $3,000, $4,000 ... who knows? Let me suggest a $3,000 rebate. Given that the 2011 GCs are a few hundred less in invoice price to the 2010's (something that is heavily noted in the media). This would make a base 2011 GC Loredo with 4wd come out to something like $28,700. Or about $600 more than I can get the 2010 GC for now.
Again, just a fun conjecture. But something I need to use in my buying decision. I'm not going to be buying a 2011 GC ... but need the 2010 GC rebate to go higher very soon if I'm to buy a Jeep.
#699 of 892 Chrysler Affiliate Pricing
Aug 04, 2010 (6:39 am)
My company has a partnership with Chrysler Affiliate Rewards which gets us 1% below factory invoice pricing on virtually all Chrysler group vehicles excluding Challenger I believe. I'm not serious about buying a 2011 GC yet so I haven't initiated the process to see if the 2011 GC is even eligible for the special affiliate pricing. I stopped by a local Jeep dealer to see the GC in person and inquired about the Chrysler Affiliate pricing and they said it was not eligible on 2011 GC. Have trouble believing that. Anyone else planning on buying with Chrysler Affiliate pricing?

Any word on the incentives (if any) for the 2011 GC?

utexas06 if you mean like an employee purchase program through your company, yes the 2011 are eligible, however all dealers don't have to be participants. However I have an order sheet in front of me for the vehicle I ordered and it shows the FFP price, which is 1% below invoice. The invoice for the overland I ordered is 42,549 and the FFP price is 42,124 or 1% below invoice. Go to a different dealer..
