2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Price Drops $3,200

August 25, 2011

Good news for Jeep Grand Cherokee fans - the 2012 base model will go on sale next month with a price that's $3,220 lower than the 2011 model.

Before you get too excited, it looks like Jeep has removed some standard options to make up for the price difference.

For example, the power eight-way driver's seat is missing on the 2012 base model and other options seem to be a little more expensive.

We don't have the full options list yet, so we won't know for sure until the vehicle goes on sale.

Nonetheless, there are other improvements such as the addition of a six-speed automatic transmission for V-8 Powered trims.

We're also seeing some improvements in fuel economy, with the V-6 models burning 1 mpg less fuel overall.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee was redesigned for the 2011 model year. It's usually a good idea to wait until the second year before buying a redesigned model.

This is so all the kinks are worked out in the first year of new production and you'll be less likely to experience problems.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
