Just curious how the pricing is working out for those of us in NY. I'll report back tonight on what I get offered here on Long Island.

What was dealers original price?

I have been in contact with five dealers in Western New York and have left each dealer giving my final offer of $28,500 Out- The- Door price. I have yet to have any dealer except my offer. I will remain patient.0:)
Base Trailhawk (no options)

That's right around or below invoice (not including any holdbacks) if my math is right (depending on what sales tax is by you).

I think you could do it if they had one on the lot that you were ready to buy now. Have any of them offered a counter?

In NY, that doesn't quite cover invoice plus tax on the failry common base + sticker+ alarm/safety &security/keyless entry. Much less tags and title or delivery fee. Holdback is in theory 3%, and that price doesn't even leave them all of that.

I can see why there are no bites while the vehicle is still in short supply.

Invoice on a Trailhawk with no options is 25,141. Add in destination fee of 995, and assume title, license, and doc is another 50, 60, and 75 (give or take), you're now at 26321 which still leaves 2179 left from 28500 which works out to be around 8.3% of the invoice+destination. Depending on what part of NY he's in, that could go either way.

Jamestown NY, for example, on the western edge, has a 7.5% sales tax. Buffalo? Not enough to cover taxes.

That sounds great.
Did it require a lot of effort to negotiate it down that much?


A little back and forth I wanted 1200 (the cost of the sunroof) but I am happy with $900. If anyone is looking for a vehicle in Ma. I Highly suggest talking to Soloman Reddix at Jeep 24 in Brockton. Just tell him that I (Marc Craig) referred you. He is the one that got me the deal, and I am sure he'd help out other jeep enthusiasts.

Yet they are advertizing prices such as this on websites for local dealers.

TrueCar- Base Trailhawk, including destination > $ 26,474.00 -$100.00 Geico customer. remote keyless/ start > $ 26,979.00 " "

CarsDirect - Base Trailhawk, including destination >$26158.00+$130.00 blk hood.
Check these websites. See if I'm right or wrong.

Not in NY, but I live in SoCal.

My TrailHawk was sticker priced at $30,000-ish. From what I can tell it was only missing 2 options. The GPS head unit, which I would've like but didn't care for much since I use my phone for GPS. And Google earth when I hit the trails. The other option was the My Sky roof. Which I don't want because I plan to put a roof rack up top. I wouldn't like to take my roof rack off to remove these panels every time. And I wouldn't really take them off anyways if I had them. I've own cars with t-tops, sunroofs, moonroofs, and panoramic roofs and I hardly every utilize them. I always though, "hey, that's a great feature" but it's pointless if I never use them.

Anyways, the total came out to under $34,000. 3.6% rate. $500/month for 7 years. $3,000 down. Credit score around 760.

I was really just going in the check out the car and test drive it. Did not have anything on me required to purchase the car.

They ran the numbers and wanted $10,000 down (1/3 or 30% down) and I was looking at $750 a month. Which was what I kinda expected. I tried to low ball them so I could leave, because hey, I test drove the car and liked it but I was anywhere comfortable financially. They would not let me leave without the car... lol, car salesmen, but they brought it down to where I was comfortable ($3,000 down and $500/month) and I couldn't refuse.

Fobar,
To answer your question about the dealer offering a counter. I called the dealer that was advertizing through the TrueCar website and he said the price advertized on that site was what he would sell the Trailhawk for. The vehicle I was considering was sold before it hit the show room. I don't know what it actually sold for. I'm waiting for a call on the next Base TH (Anvil) they receive.

Completed my order tonight - I got a Trailhawk model with every option except the towing package. With the Costco Auto Buying program it came out to $500 under invoice. MSRP of 32,935, invoice of 31,866, Costco price of 31,366.

Not too shabby!

Going to finance it through my credit union which is offering me 1.89% at 60/72 months, or 2.27% at 84. Could even go 96 months at 2.64% but that's a crazy long time to finance a car lol.

Thanks guys - it's actually going to be my wife's car, but I'm pretty damned excited about it LOL. I had a '98 Wrangler Sahara back in those days and loved it, I guess this is sort of a homecoming for me.

My daily driver is a supercharged '13 Subaru BRZ - I love that car for very different reasons than the Jeep, I'm very excited to have both available in my household.

And yes - I definitely got the MySky roof. In my opinion, it was the defining feature of the Renegade and we just wouldn't have as much fun without it. To my knowledge, no deliveries currently in the US contain a MySky. I guess mine will be one of the first. Will keep everyone updated as to delivery progress.

Trailhawks and other Renegades at a few volume dealers on the east coast (one has pictures of 15 Renegades that are taken on the lot with his sign in the background) are already running $3,500 below list, Internet price. I called to see if there any gimmicks. I was told if I showed at the dealer with a check for $25K, I had my choice of Trailhawks on the lot - plus taxes, and a $200 paperwork fee.

The Trailhawks on one lot are listed for $28K or so, and are selling for $25K. That's without taxes, and I don't know if it includes destination.

Don't freak if you're not offered that price at a low-volume dealer, or in other locations. Everyone plays by slightly different rules. I'm just offering one example.

I test drove a Latitude today and the salesman I talked with said the MSRP on the sticker is the price that I will pay, there are no incentives and since it's so new they won't budge on the price. Needless to say I didn't drive off in a new Renegade today.

I was actually expecting something along those lines but I guess Jeep doesn't foresee a supply problem. The last car I bought was a 2013 model Subaru BRZ in 2012 and the US was only getting around 10K of them, and nobody had any in stock. I ended up paying MSRP for that, and was one of the lucky ones - others were paying over MSRP.

What credit union? That's a nice rate, two credit unions I'm eligible for aren't doing better than a number of banks. Best I have found for 48-72 is 2.29%
