Base Laredo gets $3k+ price cut!

I suppose they didn't sell enough Laredos last year as compared to X's, Limiteds and Overlands. Sounds like they'll be subtracting some standard features, as well... probably a good move.

I don't think they want to sell more Laredos. They make more money on more optionned models. They just want a real low price to print in 2" high bold letters in the newspaper ads next to a picture of a JGC. It's all about betting people in the showroom.

^That's true... however, just from casual observation, I have noticed far more Laredo X's, Limiteds, and Overlands on the road than the base Laredos (recognizable by the cheaper 17" wheels).

After the Durango and how cheap you can get theses, I think it was a good move on Jeeps part as the larodos were a bit too high

Price cut???

MISLEADING. The "price drop" is only $2,000...

They took away content to drop the price...

And right now you cannot order the Laredo for $26,995. You are REQUIRED to order the "E" package which adds - you guessed it - $2,000.

They are promoting it at $26,995 but you cannot buy one for that price.

Just like the SRT8 - promoting it at $54,470 but the CHEAPEST you can buy one is $61,780.
