Top 15 New Cars Priced Highest Above MSRP

  • SUVs stay ultra hot.

  • Of the 15 there are only three cars.


News of parts shortages and production delays continue to make headlines in the auto industry. While there have been some improvements in inventory, demand for new vehicles, some more than others, continues to outpace availability. This situation has allowed dealers to charge an average of 10% more than the manufacturer’s recommended retail price.

If you’re looking for a new SUV, chances are the premium above the MSRP will be even greater. According to a recent analysis, some SUVs from brands such as Jeep, Genesis, Porsche and others sell for nearly 25% above the suggested retail price. Speaking of premium, luxury automakers feature prominently on the list, including Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, and Cadillac. The models of non-luxury brands are all hot-ticket items such as the Chevrolet Corvette and the beautiful Maverick and the Bronco from Ford.
