I bought mine on September 30th, a Latitude 4x4 with no additional options, and the 1.4L with manual trans. Sticker price for that configuration is $23,295 plus $995 destination charges, for a base sticker of $24,290. After some serious negotiations for about 10 days, I was able to get the dealer down to $20,789, with their discounts and $1500 in Jeep rebates. We then had to add taxes ($1355.72), title ($56.75), license for 2 years ($160), state inspection for 2 years (included with title fee), dealer document fees ($148), and $149 for VIN etching on the windows, and my drive-out price was $22,658.47.
There were deeper discounts on the Sport models, but by the time I would add a few of the options I wanted on a discounted Sport model it would cost more than the Latitude (and the Latitude has more features). I shopped the Renegades hard for a few weeks before I narrowed my focus to the vehicle I ultimately purchased. I contacted about a dozen other dealers within 250 miles of me, and none of them would get anywhere close to the deal I was able to get right in my home town. Most only wanted to discount the Latitude a few hundred dollars, plus the available rebates. Even the most aggressive of the out of town dealers would only discount about $800 plus rebates, whereas the local dealer discounted it $2001 plus the $1500 in rebates. There weren't a lot of 4x4 Latitudes with the 1.4L available, and the one I bought was only one within about 80 miles of me. To make matters worse, I only wanted to consider a few colors which really limited the available vehicles in my search area. Commando and Sand were my first & second choices, followed by Blue, Yellow, Orange, or Red. The Jeep website makes it easy to see which vehicles that meet your criteria are available in your area.
