Need advice- trading from 2012 to 2013?

I can trade my 2012 Overland 4x4 V8 brilliant black /beige for a 2013 Overland 4x4 V8 QDII brilliant black /black.

For $3,500.

I have $18,000 miles on mine and it's in perfect condition.

kbb private party price is $39,652.

I have $2,500 worth of incentives for the new one and basically would only be getting a different color interior (black) and QDII. I'd have to pay for tinted windows and clear bra all over again. Mine has rust protection too but not sure if that actually prevents rust.

With all of those incentives it would be like the dealer is getting $6,000.

Is this a good deal? Good deal, but still a waste of money?
I turned the deal down a few weeks ago.

I would also be paying extra for the black wood trim and steering wheel off of a Summit. And moving all of my Altitude parts and shark fin antenna over.

The 2013 MSRP is $47,880. The price would be half of holdback, or $700 below invoice less all incentives. So $41,500.

Trade for mine would be $38,000. Mine MSRP was $46,015 and I paid $42,872.

Thanks.

And what kind of upgrade would this be?

Re: Need advice- trading from 2012 to 2013?

I'd pass. I see only the QDII and ZF 8 speed as the main benefit but are they really worth $3,500+? The dealer is wins, you would be standing in place. But if it makes you happy.....

Re: Need advice- trading from 2012 to 2013?

The only difference is the interior color and adding QDII. And a 2013 instead of a 2012. Both are Overlands. Same vehicle, same 6 speed. Thanks for the help.

Another question, would carbon fiber trim and an SRT steering wheel look good in the light frost beige / dark frost beige 2012 Overland Interior?

Re: Need advice- trading from 2012 to 2013?

I traded from a 2012 to a 2013. I traded in the 2012 Laredo E for $26,500 after about 10 months and 15K miles, my buy out on my financing was $26,000 so I had $500 in positive equity transfer. The 2013 Laredo X I was able to buy almost 20% off MSRP after applying all the rebates and dealer discounts -- just $1000 more then I paid for the 2012 lesser equipped vehicle 10 months earlier. I also decided to lease the 2013 so my payments went from $550 to $380 for a more expensive ride.

Honest to god, my 2013 drives much better then my 2012. I don't really know why, I think it may just be the newer tires, but the ride quality is much better and the road noise is much less. Maybe I had a bad 2012 but this 2013 is really tight and seems slightly better built IMO.

Since it doesn't look like your upgrading feature wise, have you thought about switching over to leasing. There is still a $5000 IDL rebate for leasing a 2013 through an third party leasing company -- it's a great deal. Otherwise I would try to get another 5% off for it to make sense IMO -- that purchase price is just too high on a 2013.

Re: Need advice- trading from 2012 to 2013?

z0lt3c. I paid cash for mine and would be paying cash if I trade. I'm not interested in leasing. I don't know how I can get another 5% off. That would be below dealer cost. The price for the 2013 if I get all of the holdback and all incentives I qualify for would be $40,984.

Nothing. Thank you sir. That money will be nice to keep, and have available, and also to help toward a future vehicle or toward finishing my basement some day.

It's only a good deal for the dealer. Save the money for the next iteration of the GC.
