So after looking at the invoice for my PacHy Limited I saw 3 prices.

MSRP $48'580 (invoice $48'440)

1 - EP or employee pricing: $46'218

2 - PP or preferred pricing: $48'030 (funny enough the Hybrid is not in the lineup for this offer {Chrysler Affiliate}?!?)

3 - DR or Dealer Retail maybe? not sure on this one...: $47'715

All price include transport...

I paid $46'940 and it includes S & Safety Tech in Maryland.


Hope this info helps some of you get a better price.

My experience 3weeksago trading in my 2018 for the 2019 hybrid limited...
Every option made listed Murphy on mine as about 51k. Final price about 48.5k. Less, $7500 tax credit=41k. Also saved about $3k in tax I would have had to pay on the new one if I was not trading in the old one. Purchased the old one in a tax-free state and moved to the taxable state. Before relicensing it in the taxable state, I traded it in.

I like your thinking.

Thanks for the info. How much off MSRP was that for you then? $48'580 minus $46'940 = $1,640 ?
Last week I bought 2019 PacHy Limited with moonroof and everything with MSRP 50750... Got a dealer discount of 4K straight! Will get another 7500 for federal rebate... With sales tax (10.5%) and all it would cost 45K net! I shopped around at multiple Chrysler dealerships and everyone said this is the best offer...

I finally joined the ranks! Bought on Feb. 27th, after getting price proposals from multiple Chrysler dealers.

2019 Pacifica Hybrid Limited, Billet Silver with Alloy Interior, and Advanced SafetyTec.

$46,743 out-the-door price. When you subtract out the dealer processing fee, sales tax, tags/title/reg, the base price was around $44,482.


Keep in mind that car manufacturers and auto dealers obscure their costs and distribute them across all their vehicles. Invoice and MSRP are somewhat meaningless, and things like Employee Pricing are mostly just gimmicks. Dealers have sales targets to meet to get bonuses. The dealer I worked with who was the best offer this month might turn out to be the highest offer next month.

Agreed . I know as a fact that when they advertise employee pricing it’s so not . Any angle to get potential customers that think they are paying what the employee is paying . It’s the shell game or just smoke and mirrors . The best one is we’re not making any money on the vehicle but we’ll sell it to you anyway .

"Invoice", "employee pricing", "preferred pricing", "dealer retail"... they mean absolutely nothing. I completely ignore them. The only thing that matters is how much off MSRP will they discount. If a dealer out of state will give you $5k off, but you can only find $2k off locally, buy it out of state and ship or drive it. If you don't do you homework before going into a dealer and just accept whatever "special deal" they give, I suppose you can be happy with whatever you get.

Bought a fully loaded 2019 PacHy Ltd MSRP 49K for $1000 rebate + $3200 Delaer discount + TTL.
Interesting that the $1000 rebate ended Feb 28th. Doesn't show up for March 1st!
For once waiting was not a good option :) especially as the Texas $2500 is nearing full subscription (263 remaining as of now).

Effectively $7500 + $1800 ($2500 TX rebate - fed Income [email protected]%) + $3200 + $1000 = $13,500 price reduction

My fully loaded PacHy comes out to be appx $41K landed (includes the 7 year 75K service plan -- Yes I got sucked in, they need to make a living!)

Anyone else bought a PacHy and wants to share numbers?

I'm on the hunt for my first PacHy. Found a 2018 Limited about 50 miles away advertised under $35k. Seems too good to be true, but maybe they are desperately trying to clear out the '18s? Going to check it out this week. Anything I should be wary of? TIA.

They may be including the $7500 tax credit in the advertised price.

Yeah, some dealers are very bad about including the federal income tax credit in their pricing. What's worse is that FCA seems to actively encourage this kind of malarkey.

After being stranded twice over the past few months in my 1999 Town & Country Limited with fuel system problems, I figured it was time for a new car.

My lovely wife got a Tesla Model-3 last summer, but I need a bigger car, so I figured a Pacifica Hybrid would fit the bill -- but my Town & Country had all-wheel drive, and I live on a hill with steep roads so I was holding out for a fabled AWD version of the Pacifica Hybrid. Finally, on a Saturday in mid-February, I went through Consumer Reports' no-obligation auto-buying service (which is actually TrueCar) and entered the info for the Buddhist Zen version of the 2019 Pacifica Hybrid Limited ("make me one with everything"). Got emails from three dealers, one local and two out in the boonies, and the local dealer offered $3500 off sticker (including the $1k Chrysler rebate). We drove to that dealer and quickly found out that the car they offered was actually ordered for someone and just picked up (I guess they were going to let me test-drive it and order another). Kind of annoying watching the poor guy poke at his computer, trying to figure out where the car actually was.

Disappointed, we drove to another larger dealer in town that wasn't part of TrueCar -- the dealer that used to service my T&C (I bought that at a small dealer 100 miles away via email in 1998). This dealer had two Hybrid Limited on the lot with everything I asked for except the S appearance package -- they were still black, had 20 miles on them and looked great. After a test drive, we sat down, and I showed them the TrueCar email with $3500 off and asked if they'd match it. He went away for about 10 minutes, came back and said "sure". Of course, that was followed up with a visit to the "financing office". I already had everything set up with my credit union from the last time my T&C stranded me, and the finance guy said if I'd switch to their financing through some other credit union that I'd never heard of at 4%, they'd give me $500 in cash. My rate is 3%, and he said I could still refinance next week -- my credit union would still treat it as a new car loan. I thought this sounded really hinky so I refused -- he then upped the offer to $750. Still said no. Then he said that my credit union does not allow them to add on an extended warranty, which I think might be the root of why he was trying to get me to switch. (I later ask my credit union about that and they said there's no such restriction, but upping the financed amount to include a EW could be a problem for someone at the edge of their pre-approved amount -- I wasn't anywhere near it.) The funny thing is, knowing Chryslers, I actually did want an EW, but I believe Chrysler's is 5 years/60,000 miles for $3k (I'm sure that's negotiable). The credit union offered a 100,000 mile/8 year bumper-to-bumper warranty (with a few exclusions like shocks but full electronics coverage) for $1800, so I took that. Just hope the company (something like "Route66") stays in business. If anyone knows anything about this company, I'm still within my cancellation period -- please comment. I've had good luck with EWs in the past, including on my T&C -- got a new transmission shortly after the Chrysler warranty ended, and with the complexity of the hybrid, I figured it might be worth it.

Anyway, I bought the car on a a Saturday, and they let me take it in exchange for a promise to bring the check Tuesday, which I did. So that's my purchase story. $3500 off for one with everything except the S appearance package. (Actually, I was surprised that the theatre system is now included as standard in the Limited -- the SafetyTek and sunroof was really the only add-on as I didn't want the bigger wheels without the S package.)

After enjoying a $7500 tax credit for last year's Tesla purchase, I'm looking forward to another $7500 next year. I also did the convoluted paperwork for the Texas $2500 plug-in hybrid rebate, which requires two copies including pages signed by the dealer (they acted really confused about what I was asking them to sign--duh). Someone here mentioned that they're almost out of money, so I'd better follow up on that.

I do have to report that the check engine light came on at the end of the first week and it intermittently went in and out of turtle limp mode. While that was disappointing, it turned out that a clamp hadn't been properly secured to the coolant pump, so coolant was leaking out and I couldn't see it because the car bottom is covered with a shell, so it all accumulated in there. They gave me a loaner and fixed the problem -- everything has been perfect since then. I drive 11 miles each way to work and usually make it there and back with a bit of power to spare (much of the drive is at 70-75 mph, which isn't ideal for regenerative braking). In three weeks, I've used just over 1/8 of a tank of gas -- hope I don't run into the "stale gas" problem others have discussed here.

Sorry for the overlong intro -- I hope to learn a lot here about the car by reading other posts.

Got an offer for 48,500 for a 19' fully loaded limited in SC... MSRP is $50,625. Good deal or no? Seeing most people reporting average of $3k off MSRP. How much more you think I could push for if financed through the dealer vs financing on my own vs cash?

Maybe good in your area, but if you expand your search area to VA or FL, they are selling for $6000 off MSRP. Check out cars.com and CarGurus.com.

Has anyone leased one? I am having trouble getting them to apply the entire 7500 rebate from IRS to Chrysler applied to my cap. One offered to give me 50% of it. Other cars/dealers will do this. Some dealers HAVE promised they will do it for that PacY and then don't get back to me. Does the dealer benefit somehow if they will not apply the 7500? If that has worked for anyone please explain how and if the dealer is within 500 miles or so of NC point me their way!

On a purchase I am being offered a price of 42K vs 49K MSRP for a limited with options of 18" wheel, blue paint, safety tech. I am ordering it. I i want to lease as I don't trust FCA quality long term nor do I want to deal with trying to sell it as it is kind of a specialty vehicle at this point.
The idiots in my state legislature are trying to add 300 to registration fees because it doesn't pay enough gas tax. Carbon costs nothing I guess.

Of course we will see what they try to slip by for doc fees. The affiliate program I am using states no doc fee as the dealer gets $75 from FCA for the paperwork.
Some dealers want over 500 for doc fees. LOL.

Thanks

Thank you to everyone that is sharing their Out The Door pricing and the $OFF they got from the MSRP.

Since FCA is now doing 0% APR on the PacHy, I'm going to start looking for a 2019 Limited, I live in Southen California ( Orange County ) , if you have any input on OTD pricing or can recommend a dealer pleas do so :)
