I've been getting identical messages from "Jeff" for the last three times. My dealer and his regional manager can't get an update either. I ordered 1/29 and it's been awaiting inspection for over 50 days.
I totally agree. Custom order your jeep with a dealer. Plenty will get you 11% below MSRP (with tread lightly) which is probably much better than you will get with a jeep at the dealership. Send me a message if you would like the dealer I am working with in NC. No price haggling either.
There are a handful of dealers that will offer 5% below invoice (about 10% below MSRP) without negotiating. I suggest posting your location. There is a great dealer in North Carolina that does this all through email. Plus you can get another 1% by joining tread lightly ($100 membership) and...
Jeep.com states it's a 16 kWh battery (see below). Here's some wishful thinking... maybe the people who ordered their 4xe early have the 17.3 kWh battery, then Jeep had to change their specs due to battery availability.
A 4X4 FIRST AND FOREMOST
The Wrangler 4xe system is paired with a 2.0L...
I was disappointed seeing the battery change from 17.3 to 16 kWh, but I am having to remind myself that I would have still ordered the Jeep if it was originally advertised with a 16 kWh battery. I am just glad that we are still eligible for the full $7500 tax credit.
The 4XE was added to the eligible list this month. I have not seen the latest document, but my dealer stated it was just recently added. I suggest contacting your dealer. If you get into a bind, reply back and I will ask my dealer for the document.
My MSRP with destination is $52,395 (Sahara 4XE with painted hard top and mats). The no hassle pricing I got was $46,803 with the tread lightly discount (4xe was just recently added to the list). This is almost 11% below MSRP. There is another 1% discount if financed through Chrysler.
