2023 Ski Doo pricing

Recommended Posts

I was curious about the 2023 Ski Doo sled, so I visited the Ski Doo web site. The new sleds look good, but prices have escalated. A 2022 Freeride had an MLP of $15,350, and a 2023 Freeride is $15,950. So, a $600 (3.9%) boost in MLP. Those prices don't include transportation or preparation. Those numbers seem to be at least close to normal. Something new has been added, it's called a "commodity surcharge" of $250 or $400. The $250 applies to the less expensive sleds (below $7000), and the $400 applies to the rest of the lineup. That would bring the sticker price of a Freeride to $16,350, plus transportation and preparation. I read in the Wall Street Journal that Polaris is seeing the same problems as Ski Doo, and is considering price hikes. They were concerned that  "aggressive price hikes could alienate consumers and hurt sales" for what might be temporary supply hikes. I wonder if Polaris might look at "commodity surcharges? 


For those who haven't pre-ordered, we’d like to inform you of adjusted pricing for 2023 snowmobiles. This price adjustment may come as a surprise, and we are very sorry for this. As you are aware, pricing has increased for many products across industries around the world and powersports is no exception. BRP has explored various ways to accommodate the disruptions while maintaining a steady flow of production and material sourcing, transportation of parts and vehicles as well as how we assemble each and every unit. Please Note: The pricing adjustments will not impact customers who purchased a snowmobile through the Spring Sales Event between February 14 and March 31. Additionally, there will be no pricing impact on the youth MXZ 120/200 models or the entry-level models MXZ and Summit Neo/Neo+. Keep in mind there will remain a temporary commodity surcharge in addition to the adjusted price.



 BRP's supply chain continues to be impacted by two factors during the pandemic: rising raw material costs and increased shipping costs. Because of rising costs, BRP has put in place a commodity surcharge for Sea-Doo, Ski-Doo, Lynx, Can-Am Off-Road and Can-Am On-Road vehicles.

I guess we can't be too surprised, considering what is happening in lots of other industries. Doesn't mean we have to like it. I would guess Polaris, and probably Arctic Cat will do something similar. 

Changing the subject just a bit - was talking with one of my wife's cousins on Sunday, he is thinking that he want to buy a new sled this fall. Would prefer Skidoo, but is flexible. Anyone know of any dealers that would be likely to have new sleds (600 or 800, not a mountain sled) available? I think he may have real trouble finding something.

Regardless of list prices, commodity adjustments.... There is little dealer inventory and the dealer ultimately sets the retail price.

Plenty of cars marked way over MSRP...   expect to pay more for toys too . . .
