2016 Order Help

Hello Everyone,
After a 2 year hiatus after my Lemon 2014 GC, I'd like to get back into the car. Where is everyone getting the best deals on 2016 orders?

Thanks.

Re: 2016 Order Help

You'd probably get a much better deal on a leftover 2015 which there are plenty of right now, the 16' and most likely 17' are unchanged from the 15' so your not losing out on new features, etc

I know there are good deals, but I'm definitely placing an order. No dealer has a billet silver Overland with atc and off road adventure ii with the diesel.

What happened to all the Group Buy posts? I can find them in Google Cache, but they are unavailable here in the forum.

Unfortunately, the folks running the group buys were not supporting this forum financially while raking in a ton of business and those type of posts are no longer allowed without a forum Vendor membership. As a private business, the forum has certain expectations when it comes to advertising here which should be understandable to anyone who has been or is in business and likes to be able to pay the bills. (BTW, that's not up for discussion. It's a forum owner policy and we have to abide by it. Posts to the contrary WILL be deleted)

That said, the good news is that there may be some negotiation going on to get certain dealers on board so that buyers and the forum benefit. "Cross your crossables" that happens. In the mean time, there are dealers out there that have aggressive pricing, so shop around, especially if you're willing to travel a bit for a good deal when your new JGC is delivered. I assure you that my next JGC purchase will be handled that way.

Unless you were able to obtain more than 5% under invoice then it wouldnt be worth it. The 2015 will look dated as soon as the 16s are released.

Dated ? Their going to be physically identical except for the new shifter and some new paint colors none of which interest me. Seems the SRT models get some cool new goodies but for most of the models the upgrades are small and most will go unnoticed to all but the most trained eye

Thanks.

I bought my latest jeep, a 2016 Trailhawk in Oct. I started out looking for either a new or used 2014+ TH or 2013+ GC Overland, new or used 2014+ Overland but in the end I got nearly the same price buying a new 2016 TH, and got more features. I would look at all your options. There is no hard or fast rule, but as noted you may be able to find a better deal on a 2015 than I was able to, as is early 2016. Good luck!

From what we've seen so far the front fascia has also been refreshed.
