When I was comparing the numbers between buying a 2011 Classic compared to a new 2010, I was pleasantly surprised that the 2011 was a lot cheaper! Here's the MSRP's for the Classic that I ordered with the following options: 6 speed, Super Track Pak, and 730N Radio (includes destination to Texas):

2011 $36,645
2010 $39,120

Part of the reason is the 2011's have the manual tranny as standard equipment now. So if you're looking for a manual, it's best to keep in mind the savings you'd automatically get on the newer model.

True, but the margins are less between the '10s and '11s. The dealers won't have as much bargaining room with the '11s as they did with the '10s. I doubt next year at this time you will see $8500 off MSRP for leftover '11s.

I'm not surprised. Didn't they eliminate the very high end hood prop rod and replace it with a couple of cheap struts?

Your price on the 2010 model seems way to high with that little options?It must have had some other options?Plus we got 2k in mopar bucks in 2010?

Yeah our Rtc had manual, pcp color, Electronic group, sunroof and hids and was $38.9 That 10 had to have other options. Either way congrats on new purchase!

When I test-built a 2011 R/T Classic a few months ago on Dodge's website, there was only about $300-$500 difference if I remember correctly for something comparably equipped to my 2010. Of course, that was with an automatic so it's working the opposite way as your example.

Depends on what you want.

Keep in mind we are quoting sticker prices. Again either way sounds like you got an unheard of deal with snagging a loaded classic for 32k out the door. grats


Edit* actually I was just monkeying around with the online builder (something I havent done in about a year) and it does in fact seem 2011 classics are way cheaper than 2010 were. Did they make Hids standard?

2011 Classic includes electronics convenience, HID headlights, 6spd, all of which make it about $4K less MSRP
Yep, I didn't include HID headlights in my original 2010 price so the difference is even higher than I thought. So here's my updated MSRP's for my Classic with 6 speed, Super Track Pak, 730N Radio, Electronics Convenience Group (Included in 2011 Classic), HID Headlamps (Included in 2011 Classic):

2011 $36,645
2010 $39,815

Difference: $3170

Here's a window sticker from a 2010 Classic (just subtract the $950 Sunroof from the price, everything else is the same):

Moral of the story: If a dealer offers you $5K off on a 2010 Classic 6 spd, you're really only saving about $2K off a 2011 model. :)

Plus there is a $1000 rebate on the 2011
