Hemi V8 Engine Price and Build Date

First time poster here. I am buying a Billet Silver on Black Overland with V8 in the next few days..some of the window stickers say the V8 is $3,195 while other say $2,695. Does the lower price mean it is an earlier build date and possibly mean it could be subject to the electrical bugs of earlier vehicles? Should I seek out one specific vehicle or another? The vehicles with the higher engine cost also are $200 more on the base price. Is one more desirable?

Re: Hemi V8 Engine Price and Build Date

The price difference is like you said based on when the vehicle was built. Jeep has been increasing the prices slowly on packages, engine choices, and models since they launched the new model a year ago. Just about all the bugs in earlier builds have TSB's to fix the issue or would be a part of the initial recalls they had. The newer builds will have the latest version of the software on them, so they won't have the issue upon delivery, unlike us owners that took delivery before the updates were available. The one key difference I would look at if you compare and are buying the advance tech package is to see if the models offer the ACC w/Stop.

Thanks for the reply. I don't plan to get the advanced tech package.

Try to get the newest build that you can. The more TSBs that you can put behind you the better. I have an April build and I have been back to the dealer 6 times for minor things. Nothing major and I still love my jeep but the more of that stuff that you can put behind you the better.

Re: Hemi V8 Engine Price and Build Date

If you get Quadra-Lift, the later builds have an option to lower the car when you put it in park.

Re: Hemi V8 Engine Price and Build Date

^^ Forgot about that option. It was there initially, but removed in later software updates for the early builds.

Re: Hemi V8 Engine Price and Build Date

Just left the dealer. Sticker is 50,385 and I've got a deal on the table for $45,000 + tax, tiltle etc...Seems better than the DC group buy. Sound like a fair deal?

Check your numbers...... that's not better than the DC group buy, which is about ~ 6% below invoice not MSRP (Sticker)!!
