prices on trading in a 2012 laredo X
 
I am wondering if anybody has recently tried to trade in a 2012 V6 Laredo X 4x4 and what kind of values where you getting from the dealers? Something like 8000-12000 miles I would presume for that year.

Rutt-roh...do you have "the itch" for a MY14, Z? :)

Seriously, there have been a couple of folks that posted about trading in MY12 vehicles. You might do ok given you seem to keep your car nice and have made it even nicer with some little upgrades. No harm in asking some dealers...

I made the mistake of playing with the new touch screen.... It's tough for me to translate overland prices but I think a laredo X would be comparable to my vehicle. I used the Autotrader instant offer tool and they came up with 25K. I would need more like 27K to make it work.. I think it maybe possible but I'd rather not waste a day at a dealer to find out.

Remember though, that even though you have added the features of a Laredo X, you won't get the value of a Laredo X. Its not a Laredo X, its a Laredo E...

I went in on Saturday and got them down to 3.5% below invoice on a 2014 Overland 4x4 5.7L V8 with QDII and CD player = $45,919 + 199 doc fee. And trade price of $38,318 for my 2012 Overland 4x4 5.7L V8 with 17,000 miles. So about $8,000 to trade. I walked out without buying. When I walked out the door mine was parked in front of the 2014. Both Brilliant Black. I compared both real good and prefer mine.

I think that you could get about $30000 Just traded my 2008 Overland V8 4x4 with nearly 77000 miles for a 2014 Summit V8...dealer gave me $17000.

Well I've certainly added MANY of the feature of the X. One might say the ones I haven't added, you don't really want to pay for anyway, which is why I didn't buy a X. Also, since all my upgrades are dealer installed they are also all covered under the vehicle warranty. I was going to subtract $500 - -$750 on a realistic Laredo X value... I supposed I could have also asked for Laredo E's and added $1000-$1500. The laredo's have such a wide value range, any non-overland data points would help.

Time is in your favor right now relative to getting it evaluated for trade. Make an appointment for that with the sales dude/dudette you did business with last time (if you were happy with the dealer and/or if they are still employed there) so that your time is minimized. And tell them that you may bite on a new MY14 if the deal is right. May be best to do this toward the end of the month...would have been even better last week at the end of the quarter. That exercise will let you know if it's worth checking other dealers out, too...such as one of the high-volume Jeep dealers like Cherry Hill or Barbera in NE Phila.

When they type the VIN in though, its a Laredo E. They can't sell it as a Laredo X, they have to list your improvements as aftermarket and that doesn't add much value. It doesn't have the X package, and they won't pay you as if it did.

I had most of my upgrades added to my sales codes which shows up with a VIN build sheet scan :thumbsup:
