Thinking of buying a 2012/13. Am I crazy?
 
I've read all about the 2014s coming soon but I'm still keen on a 2012 or 13 model mostly because I'm sure I can get a good price on one now. A local dealer has a few 2012s on the lot that I'm thinking of making an offer on. What would be a good % off a Limited 2012? 2013? TIA.

I'm sure you could score a killer deal on a 2012, a 2013 may be a little higher. As far as numbers there is a Jeep dealer on here Pats Auto Field, you may look him up and get numbers from him on wht you should pay!

Your not crazy, people are still doing it. Just have to take into account depreciation as the 2014 MY is about ready to come out. For a 2012, I'd say atleast 2% under invoice. For a 2013, probably 2% under invoice plus any incentives.

I'm actually considering it b/c of a few reasons that nobody would really care to hear about. I may actually scoop up a slightly used one as I'm sure a few will be traded in once they see the '14's. Then we'll start a thread for the '2017' Grand Cherokee Features and Changes (next model change year)

It all depends on how much the "new" stuff means to you. I personally would "like" the bigger screen etc... but the lower monthly payment by a couple hundred sounded better so I got a '13. I guarantee there won't be any wiggle room on the '14's without a decent fight lol.

You're not crazy. The 12/13 is a great truck and has more to offer than most will ever need or use. I picked up my 12 Limited for a good deal when the 13's came out and now I'm considering a 13 Trailhawk since the 14's will be out soon...now that's crazy lol. If you don't mind the Hemi mpgs then you can really pick up a killer deal. There's a thread somewhere where guys are reporting prices paid. Check it out and that should help you negotiate a pretty sweet deal. Good luck!

I just bought a 2013 a week ago. I was excited about the 2014, and the new features sound great, but I was in love with the styling of the 2011-2013 model for a long time. When my 1999 GC officially died a few weeks ago, I lost the luxury of waiting for 2014 delivery several months into the future. I'm actually quite happy that my circumstances forced my decision, as I don't regret being in the 2013 at all.

Not crazy at all!! I love my 2012 Laredo X Pentastar @ almost 15K miles. Great vehicle and totally happy with the V6!

I was waiting to read the MPG ratings on the '14s before I made any decisions. They seem only very slightly better so if i can get a killer deal on the 6 speed, I would go with that. The other thing is that I'm very picky about my in car electronics and I've been super disappointed with both the 430 and 730. Sluggish performance, low res., etc. so I would have to upgrade that to an aftermarket HU. If the 14s have better displays/performance, it might make my decision tougher.

The MPG is out for the 14, it is in the 14 thread. As for the res and response on the new radios, a lot better than the old system.

While I doubt there will be any major incentives right away, it's still no problem ordering a '14 for invoice or 1% below with no fighting at all.

So, you should be able to do better than that on a '12 or '13.

If you keep a vehicle long enough the difference in trade in diminishes.

If price is a major concern in deciding what to buy, I don't think you could find a better time to be shopping than right now, except maybe next week.

Do it.

Some say only the 2014 smiley face grill looks a bit crazy.
