I signed a paper that has the dealership name on it, and as I said made a deposit. Talked to another sales person and he said the GM said don't worry about it...

I said "OK, send me a quick email from him for peace of mind...." I don't think that's happening...so who knows?

Good Luck to everyone!
I text the salesman today and he gave me a VIN and said the deal we made is still good, I would not have to pay price increase...

Performance in Dayton, OH is the dealer...

2021 TRX
If you take the time to work the math its not much of an increase. My base from 2021 to 2022 went from 70325 to 73380 but my level 2 went down from 7920 in 2021 to 7750 in 2022 and that included the Tech group and HK 19 speakers. I did the math and my total price increase is about $695 from my 2021 to 2022 TRX. I will take that without complaint on this truck. I really enjoy my 2021 and really looking forward to the 2022 TRX. I just hope the 2022 is as reliable as the 2021 has been.

You are trading a 21 on a 22? Just for the Uconnect 5? Seems like a lot if time ane expense for an upgraded infotainment system.

I'd do it in a second if the math worked. The new uconnect hardware/software is supposedly at least 4x quicker and a lot more user friendly. Plus the newer, new truck smell 🤣

My dealer said that my price was locked in. I wonder if I change the wheel, would it void it. idk

That's my point, hard to see how the math works. I like the system that is in there now. But I generally use it for basic stuff. Wireless android auto would be nice though.

I'm thinking of doing the same....locked a 2022 order at 4.4% under invoice at old pricing....it may not be worth the hassle for me though....I have my truck exactly where I want it....

Me too, just got new wheels, etc. I guess it is all about the trade-in value.

Well I didn't do that much to mine....Lomax cover, boards, Tazer, Black lugs, mudflaps....I would take it all off for the trade....but you are correct....it won't be an even trade the question is how many thousands....the 2022 is 79+ at the discounted price....my 2021 is 81K MSRP....

I got an updated poc today from Chapman. I wasn’t expecting another price increase.
Base price up $990
Level 2 up $2245
Freight up $100
Dealership said not price protected because didn’t sign Buyers Order when I placed the order. I wasn’t asked to sign a buyers order or put down a deposit. Just a heads up if you ordered from Chapman
Yeah… sucky, suck but they figure it’s no more than 4% so…

Didn't Tom himself on here say that those that ordered before 9/23 are price protected?

Yes, I believe all of us who ordered from chapman before the increase are protected. I was in touch with them and heard it straight from the source (Tom and Ashlie).

. . . and this is one of the reasons the Internet sucks ass!! You get all this old information still laying around, then someone new pops in and it attempts to become new information the next-time-around because nobody takes the effort to see if the original information is still even current and/or relevant and wham, the Internet suckage is exposed. Welcome to FaceBook! :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:

Let’s not forget I have almost 12000 miles on the 2021. I need to freshen up that warranty just in case I need it.

2020 Rebel. 2022 TRX ordered.
FYI....

So on the Ram Build site... you can now select 2021 or 2022. (interesting that you can still even select a 2021 TRX---as you can't order one)
When you select 2022, the URL address ...still shows 2021. (interesting)

I built a 2022 ...the same specs as when I built the 2021 (2021 was only option 2 months ago). I am still getting a 2022...because of the date I ordered (8/20/2021).


The 2022 shows 88,750
The 2021 (when I built it) shows 87,055 (price locked in at this, before discount)

Difference of $1695

The pricing on the 2022 builder still hasn't been updated. Example...Level 2 still shows as $7,750 but it is now $9,995. The base price is also now $73,3xx.

I'm losing track of how many times the price has increased since the order banks have opened. First it was small and now these trucks are like 5k more expensive with nothing new to show for it but a limited color that only 875 people can get
