Sounds like something someone with money would say. Not everyone has the luxury to throw money around like that
Naw, just being sarcastic. With all the MD information. Even tho cause of distance not sure why anyone would mess with other bs dealers.

Just got an updated POC, looks like the Rebel MSRP has increased again in cost. Base is now $53895 (+900), Hemi eTorque $2795 (+500), Back to Rebel Level 2 instead of "B" $3200 (+270), Night Back to $1895 (+1370), and $3 more in gas! :rolleyes:

This is my second increase since ordering beginning of December, through Chapman, which doesn't price protect.
Their reluctance to price protect as well as price protect the sold order incentives at the time of order is what drove me to order with Mark Dodge. I bought my 2017 Ram from Chapman and continue to have my Rebel serviced at Chapman. They just couldn't get competitive to get the deal done.

Price protection is a huge deal. If I did not have it through Mark Dodge I'd likely be looking at, at least a $2300 price increase (the EP spread). The MSRP increase on my build is $2570 in between the time I ordered and right now.

4-5% off invoice is fake internet talk. You could hit that by buying 1% below invoice and throwing in a few rebates but that’s the only way. Everyone gets rebates regardless of purchase price

The invoice price on my limited is $69,358. Employee Pricing is $66,090. Mark Dodge's price for me is $63,395. If Affiliate Pricing is back, I get another $500 off of that for $62,895. If there are any rebates available when I pick it up, those stack as well. That's 9% below invoice.

My local dealership does not price protect (or participate in Affiliate Pricing) and told me that my build would be at MSRP which is $75,550.

If you're not getting at least 4%-5% off invoice on a Ram then you aren't doing your homework and/or you aren't willing to travel. I'll gladly drop $500-$800 on a 1 way ticket/food/fuel to drive mine home 550 miles or so.

MSRP of my truck order was $56,755. Sale price was $50,254. That's not rebates/incentives, just sale price from Mark Dodge.

Here is a link to the thread that SnowBlaZR2 is referencing: https://5thgenrams.com/community/threads/how-to-get-the-best-price-on-your-new-ram.26103/

This is the method I followed, as many others have, to get the best deal I could. I tried about 10 other dealerships and none came close, this included local ones and ones that my family has bought from for 20+ years. Hope this helps you or somebody else out there.

There's a whole thread of people who say otherwise, and that's from one dealer.

Unless you get the rebate and then the dealer puts the rebate back on top of the deal as an upcharge...

First posting in awhile. Trying to get a lead on a discounted price on a 21 Tradesman for my son. If anyone knows any dealer that deal with current inventory, please post. I flew to MD, LA and picked up my Longhorn on 10/14. MD picked me up at hotel, in out dealership in 1.5 hours. For those of you looking to purchase currently, check out my postings. In short, MD was unbelievable. Aaron and Sandi, Sales, Marsh in finance. Ordered June, picked up 10/14. msrp 72,550. Contract price 61,899. Inv. was around 66k. dealer fee was like 220 (now about 444.00. Still under NJ dealer fees. No charge at pickup for fca price increase. No hidden charges, nada. Absolutely above board on all fronts. HIGHLY recommend them. Almost bought a tradesman from them last week but they sold out their 21 inventory in 1 week.

One of my local dealers has a pile of Classic Tradesmans but I highly doubt they will give you a deal. https://www.hendrickchryslerdodgeje...sman&_dFR[type][0]=New&_paymentType=our_price

I just did exactly this ^ Cancelled my order with Chapman and placed a new order with Renae [email protected]

She was very helpful and responsive.

Back to the back of the line, but now the wait will be much less stressful now that i'm price protected.

Sounds like a solid decision. My MSRP on the window sticker increased by a couple of hundred dollars by the time I got the truck in July for my March order. Mark Dodge did not hassle me at all & they protected the incentives that were better at the time of order in March than delivery in July as well. You will be happy.

I see a dealer with a very basic Bighorn quad cab for 36K and change in ****eysville Maryland. That's about as good as it gets. Not all that many Tradesman's out there... I think they are doing more uptrim models as there is more money in it.

I was also quoted 5% under invoice on a 2022 Laramie night from Chapman. They have been great but said that with the Laramie, the sport hood is mandatory and not able to be replaced by the standard hood on the night edition. Apparently the sport hood delete is no longer an option for higher trims. Has anyone been able to order a laramie or limited night edition with the standard hood? I know a lot of people like the sport hood but I prefer the clean lines.

This is just an FYI. I built a Laramie 4x4 on Rams web site December 29th. Sent to Mark Dodge yesterday for a quote. Price has increased $4055.00. They said the web site has not been updated in a while and that the factory has had some price changes.

This site Nadaguides has been much more accurate with pricing than the ramtrucks.com site. However, the Nada site doesn't show the pricing changes that just happened a couple of days ago yet.

I used the Ram website to build a couple of trucks while drinking coffee this morning and the price is definitely not accurate.

It made me happy I grabbed my '21 Rebel for the price I got it for though!
