Question on base price??

Long story short...my dealer screwed up and got in a 4x4 Limited w/the light frost iterior instead of the black interior that I originally wanted.

The base price of the light frost interior Jeep was $38820

Now,the one with black interior has a base price of $39215

Noone seems to know why....any clues? I called Jeep customer service and they said talk to the dealer.

TIA, Steve

Re: Question on base price??

Milous said a few days ago Jeep increased the base price and the destination charge, so the price would be slightly less for vehicles already on lots before then.

Re: Question on base price??

make sure it has a gps unit... some of the older stock didnt have one and the price reflected it. It also wont say it on the sticker.

Re: Question on base price??

I just posted about the destination charge increase as well. I wonder if Jeep is nudging up the pricing.

That explains it. I missed that post by Milous.

Thanks! I totally missed those comments. I am actually surprised 2012 increases are only 1%. I expected 2012 stickers to increase a bit more.

That 395 difference is the exact amount of a difference I had on a jeep I was looking at. It turned out it was missing gps (according to my dealer). Make sure you have it!

It does but I believe earlier models were released without it because the gps versions werent available yet.
Dealer found me a jeep that base price was 395 less than anything else I looked at and I could not tell a difference from the online window sticker. Turned out it only had the 430 and not the 430N in it (according to dealer).
