FCA is really far away from selling their 200k vehicles for the $7500 US federal tax credit to be phased out (Tesla and GM will both reach those limits in the next quarter or two), so it should be around for a while longer unless the government decides to get rid of it. With GM about to hit the limit I'd suspect they could be lobbying for the sales amount to be increased so they can continue selling cars that qualify.
Seems like most other dealers in the New England area are pricing the 2018 models pretty close to the few 2019 models that are starting to show up. The dealer where I ended up buying my 2019 Hybrid Limited had an advertised price of $2500 off sticker. They said it was a loss and they were trying to meet sales goal for incentives back from FCA. Normally I'd assume that's just sales talk, but in this case I think it was pretty close to their real cost and they made a little more on the documentation fee and took a risk on my trade-in.
That was significantly better pricing for a 2019 compared to the other few dealers that just got some in and was pretty close to the discounts on a lot of the remaining 2018s. One of the dealers I initially looked at had some 2018 models that had been sitting for a year. The only one I would have considered was a Limited and they were willing to come down $4k off sticker, but it had a dead battery, wasn't a color I loved and they low-balled me on trade-in. With depreciation I think the extra $1500 I paid for a model year newer wasn't bad, especially considering it's an exact color combo I wanted.
