Are you ashamed to just tell us what % you got? 4-5% isn't a shock.

Edit: Your Canadian, so it don't matter...lol j/k

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Milous,

Anything in the system saying about Lux II or RA3 dates changing at all? Hoping for it to open tomorrow...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

What is the affiliate program? Do you have to work for Chrysler or a dealer?

You have to remember though, invoice isn't truly invoice.

With the invent of KBB and the net etc, that is to say with people "knowing" what invoice is, the car companies release a "invoice" cost for media/print etc but the real number dealerships pay is below that. So if you get a car for invoice, the dealership is still making 3-5% on the vehicle. I have heard this from multiple people, for all I know they're all wrong. Milous may be able to confirm/deny based on his detailed knowledge.

So if you got 2% under invoice for your Summit, that's bad ass but the dealership still made money. They have to, it's kind of what they do.

Now if you'd tried to order an SRT rather than a Summit, from what i had heard in regards of how rare the SRT's are here in Canada and how few we get... you'd have been lucky to get one at MSRP, let alone less. Most dealerships can order one, maybe two and when their allotment is gone, that's that. My dealership can't order more and they've had six people request with month for deposit in hand. They were told no, by Chrysler Canada.

Not a clue why, I thought it was all about selling vehicles. Ralph Gilles had said that he wanted the SRT name to be a valuable brand, so that meant making less vehicles, making them better, selling them for more so they hold their value. No idea if this will work.. but I hope it does.

All that said, congrats on getting a sweet deal on your Summit!

U.S. dealers get a "holdback" amount that is 3% of MSRP (excluding shipping fees). In Canada the amount is a flat rate of $750 per vehicle. The holdback is designed to help pay for dealer inventory financing costs ("flooring"). On a special order vehicle that is sold right away the costs are minimal. But for vehicles sitting on the lot for months the holdback will quickly disappear.

There are a lot of other factors that can play in to how "good" of a deal someone REALLY gets. For example, a dealer could certainly sell a vehicle at "5% below invoice" (below their cost) and easily make up the difference via lowballing the trade-in, kickbacks on bank financing, extended warranties, "advertising fees", "document fees", undercoating, window etching, and all of the other add-ons.

In other words, buyer "A" could get a vehicle for "5% under invoice", buyer "B" for "2% under invoice", and buyer "B" could end up getting the better deal.

Just remember that the higher the amount "below invoice", the higher the chances are that the dealer is going to make up the difference - one way or another - and many buyers may never figure out how and where as many/most dealers are very experienced at convoluting the numbers.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

It could be off by a few days but so far everything seems to be holding true for others.
