Ordering new Diesel - Offering Invoice

So I'm ordering a new Diesel Limited, specifically how I want it:

*Luxury Package 2 (Cooled seats)
*Off Road Adventure Group 2 (Air suspension + goodies)

Those two packages only- they're saying 8 weeks lead time and best offer is invoice ($46,594) and they want to hold 5% for the 8 weeks.

I'm willing to finance through Chrysler Financial (Or whatever it's called now) and put down 20%.

I feel like I can get a better deal- but I don't want to drive across the country to get it. I'm in SE South Dakota, this is from Baxter in Omaha- I am up in Minneapolis / St. Paul all the time, maybe I can get a better deal up there.

Anyone bought one recently for 5-6% under invoice?

You can do better. Even getting the tread lightly Chrysler affiliate discount will get you 1% below invoice. That alone would save you about $400, and that's haggle free.

I'd be interested to see what deal you end up getting since that's the exact config I'm thinking of buying. Might just get a quote from Dave Smith since it's within range for a day trip for me.

Honestly, I'd add in the order the engine block heater for $95 (you will thank me if it has to do a sub zero cold start) and Navigation for $400 extra. I just ordered and put down a deposit on a similar equipped WK2 - a '14 4x4 Limited Ecodiesel with engine block heater, Lux II package, off road II package (includes trailer group and rear load leveling suspension), and Nav. I use mine for lot's of highway driving and towing so the diesel's superior performance will actually pay for itself much quicker than a gasser.

6-8 weeks is standard industry wait time (sometimes you can get lucky and get it earlier depending on build load). I'm worried about the diesel availability as the Ram Ecodiesel sold out every pre-order in 2 1/2 days!

I also signed up for the tread lightly program (cost $100 donation which is tax deductible) which gets you 1% below invoice - BUT it takes about 30 days to get the control # for it to work at the dealer. DO THAT ASAP as your order is already in the system.

So with the program you get 1% below invoice but then the dealer has some fudge room with pricing to get you even lower (it's all depending on their profit margin).

Find the highest volume dealer nearest to you and get in touch with the fleet or internet manager. I have bought my last 3 vehicles that way and have always paid under invoice. In the case of my Ecodiesel... I ended up close to 5% under invoice and got exactly the Jeep I wanted with the right option packages in the color I preferred. I used probably one of the highest volume dealers on the west coast and we did the deal over email and 2 phone calls. I think I was at the dealership for about 65 minutes total when I went to sign the purchase agreement and pick it up.

You might not want to drive to CA and drive back, but here in the bay area I was at a dealer on the peninsula and they had 40 Diesels on the lot. Should be willing to make a deal.
