As of 2015, the price of a side-by-side refrigerator can be anywhere between $600 to almost $10,000 depending on the brand, model, size and features. KitchenAid side-by-side refrigerators typically run upwards of $2,000, while brands such as Whirlpool usually stay under $1,700.
Size is an important factor when pricing refrigerators. Wider refrigerators with more cubic feet of storage space are obviously more expensive than narrower refrigerators with less storage space. Specific features such as in-door ice and water also affect the costs.
In addition to the actual specifications of the refrigerator itself, where it is being sold can largely influence the price. Buying a refrigerator directly from a manufacturer such as KitchenAid or Frigidaire is often much more costly than buying one from a retailer.
