The Luxury dealer implied they really weren't interested in budging on price at all, even by a few hundred to reduce doc fee, etc, since they know Loaded PACHY Limiteds are in short supply. Have yet to visit the Bright White dealer but plan to this morning to see their pricing flexibility. Chrysler at least confirmed for me this morning that the federal tax credit would still apply to 2018 bought this year.
According to Chrysler web site the $2500 rebate is only for TL+, Limited still gets $1000. I got over $5000 off 2019 Limited, although it was helped by the Affiliate discount. All things being equal I would probably pay $1900 premium for 2019 because of its age and additional features.
The 2018 is eligible for the federal tax credit if it is sold as new and has not been titled.

Based on some of the discounts I see people getting in this thread, seems like there's more room for negotiation on the 18.

Should we be concerned about battery condition in the 18 if it's been sitting? And can I assume if it's still officially new, it would qualify for the same federal tax credit and state rebates (we're in MA) that the 19 does? Thanks.
Also can you look at the door stickers and find out when each was manufactured? There might be only a couple months difference between them, or almost 2 years, which could then possibly be reflected in the price.

I never looked at the 2018 so not sure of the true age difference between them. But here's the resolution, and thanks to everyone who chimed in. We had to choose between the better deal and the better car.

The 2018 had no sunroof. We suspect that omission, in combo with the bright white/mocha color combo and 17-inch wheels, was what left an otherwise loaded Limited sitting so long. That dealer wanted to move the car for obvious reasons - List $47527.55 minus $5500 discount minus $3000 in rebates (never learned what combo applied) plus a $402 doc fee brought us to $39429.55 before TT&L.

The 2019 Luxury White w 18's, which listed for $50725, had the pano roof, which we decided was a must-have for road trips. We cited the 2018 opp and were able to get them to knock another $2k off their advertised discounted price, but they wouldn't budge any further, so with the $2500 rebate applied, we got them to $45000 before TT&L and we're driving a couple of hours north to pick it up this weekend.

I have been trying to negotiate on several 2018 Hybrid Pacifica Limiteds with the options I wanted (and color) and have not had much luck. I do not want to pay more then $40K before any dealer fees, taxes, etc. So far the closest I have been able to get is $41,500 but the MSRP is only $46,900. The next best deal I found was $42,300 on a loaded 18 that had an MSRP of close to $50K (or about $7K off), but the dealer just told me they sold it at that price.

I am in the New England area and dealers here funny. I found another 2018 Limited with a ton of options (again $49K MSRP) and the dealer won't budge off $45K. Keep in mind most of these dealers have had the vans sitting on their lots for over 300 days.

Must be the area, but I am looking in multiple states in New England and $40K is not going to happen on a 2018 Limited. I have not started getting prices on 19's but my guss is $44-45K before dealer fees, taxes, etc based on what I am seeing (this is for a Limited with the Safetytec package).

I also don't understand how/why the Safetytec package is optional on a $40K+ minivan and only available on the Limited and not Touring L. I like the options on the Touring L, but you cannot get the advanced safety features.

I am not in a hurry so will keep looking but my wife is averaging 18-19K miles a year on our Odyssey so a Hybrid Pacifica is appealing as many of her miles are city and with the tax rebates there is incentive.

We just purchased an 18 limited on Saturday. $49,875 sticker, we negotiated down to $41,500.

There are used 2018's selling around here for more than $34k (which is our price after the tax credit).

Congrats you really scored there. I payed about 40,000 for a 19 touring L in CA and thought I did pretty good Hopefully you had the main and the 12v battery tested before you drove it off? My 19's 12v battery was failing after my test drive but luckily my salesperson caught it and replaced before a big camping trip!

Yup, 12v battery was replaced before we even got to test drive it. It was dead on their lot.

Hello All!

Just put a deposit on a new 18' PacHy Limited w/ Sunroof, Adv Tech and 18 rims w/ all weather mats for just under 41k (not including TTL) and not including 7.5k tax credit. MSRP 49,875

Only negative is I have to ship it for 995.00 from TN to CT and I'll miss out on CT rebate of 500.00.

I'm planning to go through penfed 1.49% APR for 36mo loan.

Not bad?

Hello Everyone,

I got 2018 PacHy limited for under $40,5K before TTL from NJ dealer.
MSRP $46,985 (with AST package).
I saw better deals, but they would end up more expensive either because of double sales tax (sorry, excise tax plus sales tax), or I would have to either go on a long distance trip, or buy sight unseen - neither was a good option for me.
This one was just 50 miles form my home.
Main battery looks good, consistently gives 30+ miles electric from 75-80% overnight L1 charge (see photo).
12V bat is a different story, but all indications are it will be replaced soon.

Bought a new 2018 Hybrid Limited Platinum 07/08/2019 manufacture date on door sticker is 8-18. MSRP was 49989. Got it for 38280 out the door. After selling my 2014 T&C with 132000 miles for 10280, the total cost for the 2018 was 28000. Installed a level 2 Siemens charger the following week by my driveway. Everything has worked flawlessly. Have not had to put gas in the tank since buying it. Current mileage is 1380 and still has a little over half a tank left. After extensive research in the last several weeks, and tracking down the right individual. Yesterday I added the MSRP 4100.00 MaxCare 8 year 125000 mile bumper to bumper coverage for 2800.00.
