    2016 R/T Blacktop AWD Tech & Tow
    Interesting.....Being that my local dealership has offered to sell me a 16 at invoice minus half of the holdback you raise an interesting question. I was going to get the lifetime warranty, so maybe the 15 is less attractive than I thought.. Can you expand on the updated uconnect?

    Thank you

The 2015 R/T's already handle very good for an SUV, I can imagine the 20mm lower will further enhance the handling.

    The one benefit you do get on the 2015 is the 5 year Sirius subscription though, as the 2016's are back to 1 year. We currently pay about $250 a year for our full Sirius subscription (with traffic and weather), so an additional 4 years is worth about $1000.

    If it were me, I'd either hold off for a better deal on the 2015, or I'd order a 2016.
    Actually, the Sirius Traffic and Travel Link are the only 5 yr Sirius offers, the Sirius Radio is still just 1 yr standard. Unconnect Access is also a 6 month trial in 2015. At least this is how my Limited Premium came equipped.
    I was more in a hurry to get the 0% and the 6yr/100k mile Powertrain Warranty, which has been reduced for the 2016 DD.

    Ahhh, I see that now in the window sticker. 1 year Siruis radio subscription, and 5 year traffic and travel link subscription. That being the case, the travel and traffic pieces only add $71.76/Year. So that's only $287 for the additional 4 years.

    Being that L-Dub is going for the lifetime warranty, it looks like there's really no benefit of going for the 2015 over the 2016.

    '15 Limited, Blacktop, Premium
    We just bought ours. Not in the R/T class but a Limited. Limited, Blacktop, Premium group and we negotiated down to 14% off MSRP in San Diego. Having the 100k warranty was the kicker for her. I'd definitely negotiate further down otherwise, paying the same price for a '16 seems the way to go. Assuming you can be patient

    OK, schedules have kept me from making the transaction. However while I have waited another deal has popped up. Can I get some input about which deal to take?

    deal 1) 15 RT/ Blacktop. Tech/Napa/Tow/Rear Captains. MSRP $51,040 price $46,000 (941 miles) (no DVD)
    deal 2) 15 RT. Tech/Napa/DVD/Tow/rear Captains MSRP $53,410 price $47,250 (50 or so miles) (no Blacktop)

    Deal 1 offers $1K better on my trade....

    I should complete the transaction on Friday. Thanks in advance.

    If it's the same dealer for both, they should offer you the same trade in price for both. Otherwise I'd personally pick deal 2, less miles and DvD, but I have a baby so that dvd will be getting some use in the next few years. To me blacktop package isn't worth it for the wheels and blacked out head lights.

    You guessed it. Two separate dealerships. I was thinking of getting a good portable dvd system and going with deal number 1. But I have asked for deal number 2 to sharpen their pencils .. First world problems....

    I still say ordering a 2016 is your best bet. You can get the newer year model, with the same options, for a cheaper price.

    The rear seat entertainment isn't worth the $2k MSRP to me; especially when my kids have Kindles, and we have iPads and such for them to watch movies and play games on long trips.
