Everyone here seems to be getting at least 1% below invoice with or without the various affiliate programs out there.
I personally got 2% below invoice, but I've seen as low as 4-5% below invoice here on the 2014's.
A lot of people are less than honest about stuff like that. "I only paid xxx" but it doesn't include trade in equity, a down payment, etc. Not speaking of anyone in general, just remember, don't remember everything that you read (especially on the internet).
Are new vehicles more expensive? Definitely. For what it is? Not really.
You've got to remember that these price increases come from the stuff people want. They want 8 speed transmissions that cost more and give marginal fuel economy increases. They want bigger touchscreens and LEDs. People ant these things, but they don't come free, so the price goes up.
When you sit in the Overland, compare it to vehicles most like it, it's a great value. It's quite a bit cheaper than a similarly equipped Touareg, ML, etc. I too compared it to mostly luxury makes all the way up to Range Rovers and felt the Jeep was the best of the group, without even factoring in price.
The WK2 is a remarkable value, and a remarkable vehicle. It's a shame they beat it with the ugly stick for 2014.
It's also no longer the best vehicle on the market. The new Range Rover is pure brilliance, but you spend quite a bit more for it - We're talking nearly $100k here.
The real values are the lightly used Overlands in the $30s now.
