2012 to 2014 or wait?

I'm thinking about selling my 2012 and possibly upgrading to a 2014 is there any reason to wait? When can the next "refresh" be expected?

Will it be 2016 or later? The hellcat may also be an option but not enough details out on that yet and I think im over buying new cars, I'd like to find something used with low miles which is why I'm thinking of a 2014.

Anyone else go this route recently? My 2012 is in excellent condition only 20,000 miles but I think I just want to try a different color/options. I get bored easily I guess

Re: 2012 to 2014 or wait?

There seems to be growing mentions of a 2016 or 2017 Hellcat engine from the 2015 Charger/Challenger. If you got a car that works, I'd wait and pinch your pennies for a 700+ HP Jeep.

Re: 2012 to 2014 or wait?

It depends on if you want / can afford a Hellcat... I think the year may be debatable but I am certain they are going to put it in the Jeep eventually...

For me, the Jeep is the wife's daily driver so the 6.4 is more than enough and I really don't need to spend the extra money the Hellcat will bring anyway so I am trading my 2012 in on a 2015 in 2 weeks....

Re: 2012 to 2014 or wait?

Tough call. I wish we knew more about the hellcat.

It seems to be financially smarter to purchase something a year or two old and not lose $10-$15k that I would in the first year or two after ordering new.

Re: 2012 to 2014 or wait?

I have always bought new... and never ever have I lost $10k in the first year. Get a decent deal and then sell privately you shouldn't lose more than $5k which is about the average depreciation for the first three years. The key is to not get taken for a ride when you buy yours.

Well, I paid 1% under invoice when purchasing in 2012. At the time it was one of the better deals anyone was getting. Out the door the car was $63k, probably more like $59k without tax.

3 years later, I see most 2012's on AutoTrader and Ebay are selling for around $47,000 - $50,000

2014's are selling for $52,000 - $55,000.

Unless you're seeing something I'm not...
