Hardest hit by price rises this month is Jeep, with price increases of up to $8000. The sharpest price rise is for the Grand Cherokee Summit (up from $79,000 to $87,000), with other Grand Cherokee models up between $2000 and $3000 (except for petrol Limited and Overland, which are unchanged).

The Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited are all up between $1500 (Unlimited) to $3500 (two-door Sport and Overland and Unlimited Sport, Sport CRD and Overland). The Cherokee Trailhawk is up $4500 (from $47,500 to $52,000), while the Cherokee Limited diesel remains at $49,000.

FCA spokesman Andrew Chesterton said the increases were due to, “the dramatic change in currency value between the Australian and US dollars”. The AUD has lost more than 20 per cent in value against the USD in the last 12 months.
