'15 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Hi everyone. I'm pretty new to Jeeps overall, but I recently started looking at the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Short back story;
I currently drive a 2011 Subaru STI. My wife and I have a 4 month old and just before she was born I was wanting to trade it in for an SUV. The idea was to get something more practical, but I still wanted something sporty and somewhat off-road capable.

I was interested in a 2015 Subaru Forester XT, but she talked me out of it. Lo and behold, a month ago, we did get one. However, it was to replace her previous car. Whenever we need to go anywhere with the baby, we always take her car, because it has plenty of room. With my car, I can barely fit her stroller in my trunk and the gas mileage is not great, much less the ride which is harsh for her.

It's been a fun car the past 5 years I've owned it and no mechanical issues in it's 43K miles. But it's just not very practical anymore. I had never really considered Jeeps before, but there really isn't much out there in the same price range as the Forester that's AWD, sporty, decent gas mileage and off-road capable.

So, all that brings me to now. An SRT is out of my price range, but mid $30K's is what I'm looking to spend at most. The Laredo Altitude 4X4 in silver is what I'm interested in getting. My STI is paid off, so around $25K from its sale or trade in would go towards the new SUV.

I did sign up on tread lightly and the 3 Jeep dealerships here in Vegas honor the 1% below invoice. However, can anyone confirm the actual invoice price for a 2015 GC 4X4, Altitude? One dealer said invoice was $37K, this website(2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Prices: MSRP, Invoice, Holdback & Dealer Cost)has it listed at $31K, but a couple other websites have it listed for higher, one at $35,615 with MSRP at $37K.Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 - 2015 Grand Cherokee pricing and options

Re: '15 Jeep Grand Cherokee

OP, there are several websites that have MSRP vs. Invoice pricing. Look at Edmunds and TrueCar. These sites will often show current rebates/incentives. I believe Chrysler Credit is offering 0% financing. If so, you may want to consider investing the money from your STI (vs. using it as a down payment).

To help you regarding MSRP/INVOICE this is a snippet from wk2jeeeps dot com. You should start at invoice and then additional negotiation which would include incentives, trade-in, etc...Invoice is the starting point. I'm certain that there would also be some additional generous deals that can be made now that we are close to the 2015 end of life and the 2016 models start hitting the dealerships.

This is what I did recently when I purchased my '15 GC. Go to Edmunds and get what the value of your trade in should be. You'll get what the dealer should give you on trade, what the dealer will list it for and private sale prices.

Then to Truecar to spec out your vehicle and get what others are paying in your area and what constitutes a good deal. 0% financing is great. With rumblings of what the Fed may do, we may not see that again in the not so distant future. Now is a great time to buy a '15. Happy shopping.

Thanks for the info. So far, the current discounts I have applied is with the tread lightly rebate 1% below invoice and $500 rebate for active duty military. Not sure of any other discounts. I had planned on just trading my STI outright and then financing the $10K or so that's left over with the 0% financing.

The dealers are willing to pay me what my car is worth according to Edmund's, so I won't have to fight with them about that.

Always be prepared for a fight. Depending on the exact dealership and salesman, they may try to low-ball you. Sounds like if that happens, and you end up walking out, you have other dealership options, which is a good thing.

I am prepared for them to try something lol. Dealer 1 initially tried to lowball me on my car with $20K, until I told them no, USAA offered me more. They immediately matched USAA's offer. Then dealer 2 offered to beat dealer 1's offer. Still waiting to hear what dealer 3's offer is.

I believe there's bonus cash as well. Also if you have lease with a competitive manufacturer, there's another $1k in rebate money. Look at the previously suggested websites as there will be a link for available rebates/incentives. This would be additive to the supplier/affiliate discount (which is 1% under invoice).
