    When will Dodge increas their incentives on new trucks? Think I should wait until November or December to buy a new one.

    I bought my 2017 in December last year. MSRP was $48k, got it for $38k and some change. I put $18k down, and my Credit Union got me a sweet deal on financing the rest: .49%

      Pick out what you want, and find a few back-ups if your target truck is no longer available. Strike that deal on weekend,12/28 to 12/31. They really like to clear the books before year end...

        I got my 2018 in June with a 25% off MSRP plus the dealer gave me a $1500 in house discount. With buying in June, the selection was still good and I was able to get almost exactly what I wanted for a truck. Now, around here, the 2018's are getting picked over. Best of luck in your future purchase.

          I was lucky, I picked out the options I wanted on a Sport model, of all the items I wanted, two weren't on the truck they found, not a deal breaker for me, but two items it did have: Tow Package and Alpine Sound System - I was glad it had them.

          So all in all, I was satisfied. The dealer I bought from, however, didn't do squat for me. That was disappointing because I though the GM and the salesman were friends, but they treated me like anyone else who walks through the door. I wasn't expecting them to give it away, but I probably could have saved another couple thousand if I went to another dealer since the truck was a dealer trade anyway.

          I had a salesman friend watching for me
          Phoned me Dec 9 ordered the 10th
          most times it is Feb March or later in year when they want to clear the lot for new model

            I’m torn, I need a truck before winter. Had a company truck with my last job so I never bought one and I’ve been daily driving my 06 charger SRT 8 which mileage isn’t really bad I get up to 19mpg on the highway. My dilemma is my SRT is paid off and I’d really like to keep it but I refuse to drive it in the winter it’s horrible, I don’t know if I can finance a truck right now because my credit got a little fucked up while I was Laid off. So do I trade in the SRT or try and finance something. Decisions decisions

            doesn't do much good for people the other side of the country

            disclaimer;
            I didn't buy anything, saw the advertisement & commercials


            Elk Grove (Ca) Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram
            was advertising a $18,000 off MSRP deal
            on select Ram 1500's & eco-diesels
            some extra dealer incentive stuff too on both Gas & Diesel Rams
            & great deals on Jeeps too IIRC

                sold my commuter car (2013 avenger) and was pricing out a 2018 challenger gt awd. found this truck on the lot and with the 25% off it was considerably less.

                Just bought a brand new 2017 Promaster 1500 136" wheelbase low roof. I started looking online and found 4 17's still available locally, 2 at one dealer, 2 at another. The one I bought has everything I wanted, even double side doors. List was $35,115, I got it for $22,500. I played down the extra side door, and mentioned the other 2 available. I'm happy.
