Question What did you pay?

Hey guys new to the forum and interested in a '14 overland. Haven't test driven anything but its either the v6 gas or diesel. Seems to me that if your getting the hemi the diesel will make itself up within a couple thousand (meaning 20 or more depending) miles (I know this has been strongly debated before. Just my math). Anyways, was wondering if any of you would mind sharing what you paid for your diesel. I would want an overland with the advance tech package.

If this has already been discussed I'm sorry and could you point me in the right direction? thanks!

Re: What did you pay?

Well, just joined the club this past Monday and got an overland 4x4 with package 22p, advanced technology, QD II, and the awesome 3.0 stickered 54480 for 49249. I was pleased with the deal and I traded my 13 BMW 535 in and was pleased with the trade in as well. Was really surprised how easy this was since this is my first experience in about 18 years buying from a "so called domestic" dealer.

Thanks for the info. Just crunching numbers its going to be hard for me to pull off the diesel I think ... It's already a stretch to being with!

Not sure where you are located but might wanna checkout Texas Group Buy thread. Think one in D.C. area also. I got my 14 Overland Eco diesel w/adv tech and couple other little things for 5.5% disc. Comes out to a few hundred shy of $48k.

Re: What did you pay?

I'm about 2 hrs from dc so that's a possibility I'm looking into.
I love the idea of the diesel but am concerned about the rising fuel cost. I'm sure everything will go up but seems like diesel goes so much quicker! I'm not even that old and I remember when diesel was cheaper than gas! Anyways diesel around me has been good. About 4.17 to 4.20 on average. Just traveled up to York and it was 4.69 at one station! Geesh, glad I saved 0.20 a gallon by buying a car wash at sheetz when I filled my parents duramax! 3.97 for diesel, I'll take that!

Re: What did you pay?

if you are only considering the v6 and the diesel, you shouldn't be even considering the price of fuel. saving money on fuel is only a big deal if you're considering the HEMI. as you stated, it will pay for itself quickly. the average MPG ratings for 4x4s (who buys a 4x2 jeep anyway?) are 24.5 for the diesel, 20.5 for the pentastar, and 17 for the HEMI. the diesel will pay for itself in a couple years since it's $3831 over the HEMI (really only $1161 if you don't consider the luxury package as part of the upgrade price). if you're buying the pentastar, it's going to take a long time to recoup the cost, but it will eventually. i think the estimate i calculated for my driving scenario would be somewhere around 8 years. this doesn't make the engine free after 8 years, it just makes total ownership cost the same. but since you have to jump to the limited to get either engine option, it could potentially be a much longer time in your situation. saving money on gas isn't the best reason to buy the diesel though. you should buy it because you're going to enjoy driving it. The engine simply drives differently than the gas, and you should drive them back to back to see if it's for you. i recommend going into sport mode as soon as you start the car (just pull the shifter back one more time after D). pros include:
1) MUCH more power if you're going to tow or pack a family with camping gear. the pentastar will lag fully loaded, the diesel won't even notice a 5000 lb load.
2) engine longevity. if you're going to keep the car for a while, the diesel doesn't have to work at all. RPMs are super low at 80mph. this benefits off road too, all the torque is at 1800 RPM.
3) low end torque is amazing, espically at low speeds. punch it and it goes. punch the v6 and it will downshift,rev way up, then you will feel something. find a big hill on a test drive, and floor it on the way up, it will be tough not to smile.

getting to the point i paid 7% below invoice with the DC group buy. 48880 MSRP went to about 43500 for my diesel. you could get a diesel for less, i added the off road package which was $2221. you pretty much have to include nav though at only $356. i drove 430 miles each way to go pick it up all in one day. i left at 0445 and was home by 2200. i'd to it again in a heartbeat.

you should only be looking at invoice prices and then go down from there. they can be seen here:

Re: What did you pay?

I love diesel power. There aren't any mountains near (I'd have to drive 20 miles just to get to the mountain!) my two closest dealers that I could test drive the v6 or the diesel on. Diesel power is very nice and effortless. My family rarely trades in vehicles. We either give it to someone else in the family or turn it into a farm truck, or it gets in an accident one way or another.
I'm planning on going to school in WV so I'll be traversing lots of mountains, plus I might be driving all over PA next year with FFA. I think I would go with the overland. I like having tow hooks, have used them a lot on my wrangler, and I want the quadralift. Plus I think I like the indigo interior.

Re: What did you pay?

As mentioned before, build up your jeep the way you like it, calculate the invoice price and go from there. Others have managed to get up to 7% off of the invoice. I got 2.75% and was pleased with the deal ($1220 below the invoice of $45700, msrp $48300).

The overland with the diesel forces you to buy the advanced technology package @$1776. If you go with the limited with off road 2, you get your tow hooks and quadralift for $1598, overall cheaper, which I did. You'll lose the indigo, but how much worse is the tan or black?

Re: What did you pay?

Not much. Im just worried the tan will show too much dirt and will stain a lot easier. And I want the advance tech to begin with. Didn't realize that the diesel required it on overland......
