Buy today or wait until after 9/1/16 for the best deal?

So a family member is ready to buy either a new 2016 Overland or a 2017 Trailhawk. We're heading to the dealership later today and they have two models of interest. I'm concerned that if make a deal today we won't get as good of a deal (incentives/rebates etc.) if we wait until next month (Sept). Does anyone have any input on this?

Isn't there a $750 incentive that's expiring soon?

Don't they say end of the month is a pretty good time to buy or is that just a myth?

Mostly a myth. I guess if a dealer was one or two cars away from making quota it might help.

But, Chrysler has {unless something changed} two quotas, one on the 20th and one at the end of the month.

That's correct...it's called 'fast start'. They date I was told for my dealer was the 15th.

Which is why it isn't myth. Does not work all the time, but it can work sometimes.

I would honestly think you might get a better deal after Sept 1st. You have the quarter ending and I'm sure FCA will want to show sales still increasing YoY, plus more 17 models will be on the lot which will help negotiate a better deal on the 16 model.
