I know everyone is upset with the possibility of paying more for an order. I would be too. I have to look at things from all angles though....

If I was a dealer and in the order agreement for the Jeep clearly states if corporate raises the prices they need to pass that though to the customer. Remember the dealer pays Jeep for every Jeep they buy prior to selling it to you.

I'm not sure my dealer made anywhere close to two grand on my stripped Jeep sale. Should they have to take a loss on the sale? I certainly don't think so!

Remember if you want businesses to have good business practices and be reasonable, you too have to be a reasonable customer.

It sounds like a hard line in the sand was drawn by corporate and the dealer needs to pay more for all Jeeps ordered after X time on Y day. Thats out of the dealer's control.

I will say; if anyone complaining signed a complete purchase agreement for an assigned VIN and paid IN FULL at the time of ORDER, or got financing and a financing company paid the dealer IN FULL at the time or ORDER. Then the dealer would have to eat the price change....

Im not a car salesman.... but I have worked in service.... remember not to shoot the messenger!

Hmm....ok. Well, if me and my salesman signed an "agreement" for an OTD price on an order and a deposit was given, I would expect for the dealership/Chrysler/Jeep or whoever is "in charge" would honor it. If not, please return deposit and out the door I go. And I realize that they will get two more paying customers with the loss of one. I have my own grounds to stand on, but I am not naive to situations like that.

this was reported on the FB 4xe Fans page:

"ordered on 4/29 and MSRP was $55k. Today I got the VIN # (yay) but MSRP went to $57035. Per my dealer: "I don't see how that's fair since you already had confirmation at the original price. Makes no sense. And it literally means they're charging us (the dealer) $1800 more"
So....the price increase is a real thing. My dealer is contacting the area manager and trying to work this out. Bad on Jeep, imo

If they try to adjust the price and add the price increase there will be some wig splitting going on.

Even though the Wrangler probably has 3 more month of production, this is probably the last price increase for 2021's models.

Last model year, 2020 new orders were closed on June 4.
2021 Orders opened the next day and 2021 production started August 10th.

I haven't seen any solid rumors on big differences for 2022, other than the price will certainly be higher. Anybody out there know of any "gotta haves" for 2022?

We should all hope that the Ford Bronco is a huge success. Not because we want to purchase one. FCA needs some real competition to improve quality and reduce prices.

Competition forces companies to become more efficient instead of simply increasing prices.

I don’t think there’s going be any major design changes because that would just be too soon, however, I do believe we will see uConnect 5. FCA/Stellantis made a statement a few months ago that said all 2022 vehicles will come with uConnect 5.

The reason this is important to me is I would like a 360° camera and I really like the map improvements. This might not mean anything other people but if I’m going to keep a car for seven years, it is important to me.

There are also rumors that there may be more factory options available since the bronco has quite a bit available directly from Ford but nothing is confirmed.

FCA has been increasing prices year after year with few enhancements to the product. They do it because they can.

Maybe, but costs of goods are skyrocketing so Jeep can't lose money on selling vehicles. But the fact the dealer is being honest and telling you that the $2035 price increase means they will be charged $1800 more is a sign to me that the dealer is a good dealer and will be honest with you and is worth working with them.

So the FACT that the cost of parts, labor Shipping (pretty much all cost of doing business) has increased especially in the last 6 months has NOTHING to do with it. Get a grip on reality, every year it cost more to be in business regardless of industry. They do it because they have investors to answer too and they are mandated to make a profit. Look you do not have to buy their products.

As someone that purchased as 2018 JL (early adopter) the Wrangler has come a long way in 3 years in terms of upgrades and improvements.

I work at a intergraded steel plant that produces steel for pretty much every sector, and the prices for plate and coil are at crazy highs. Been here for 13 years and we haven’t seen prices like this in a long time
Trickle down effect, we charge more to make steel, auto companies charge more to make vehicles
