I've been thinking it over and finally decided that I want to go ahead and do it. However I just noticed that the invoice pricing has been updated to $26,615 + $825 = $27,440. And that is only $380 different from MSRP? When I talked to them today about getting things finalized and coming in tomorrow to do paperwork, they didn't mention anything about a price change.
Jeep recently set a lower price for the Laredo, $26,995 ($26,615) plus destination. This is the finalized price for the beginning of the model year.
BUT, when ordering the Laredo E you are forced to order the "Laredo E Group" package, which is $2,000 MSRP. This brings the MSRP with destination to $29,820 and the invoice price to $28,451, which is what you were quoted.
