If you know what you want in a vehicle and you aren’t taking substitution suggestions, be prepared to pay up. According to new market analysis from iSeeCars both the Jeep Wrangler and Ford Maverick are some of the most overpriced vehicles you can buy right now.
Production is down, yet demand remains high. So it comes as no surprise that dealers are having to adjust to these new market conditions by altering the sticker price of the vehicles they have on their lots. In the case of the Jeep Wrangler, the markup sits at 26.7% over MSRP which is an increase of almost 10-thousand dollars ($8,925). That price adjustment, at least in terms of percentage, is the highest and ranks at the top of the list. In terms of sheer dollar amount however the highest hike in price for an American vehicle is the Jeep Gladiator. The Gladiator sees an adjustment of $9,824 which is a 22.5% jump. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited fits in the middle of these two with a price hike of 22.9% or $9,534 which is high enough to be represented in the top-five most over-priced vehicles on the list.
