  • I notice the discounts are extended another month..........
    as if the discounts weren't there before....

    BUT:

    Can someone give a definitive answer on this.....
    GMC.COM shows employee price on a Sierra XCAB V8 Shortbed
    to be approximately 22K from list of 29K.......I've read that the
    rebates are in addition to that.....making it 19 grand.....

    but all the ad's i've seen on similar trucks have been in the 22 range......

    Is the 3000 rolled in "EVEN" on GMC's site????

    I'm looking at a stepside SLE with list of 30900 and some change
    and dealer has it for 23100.....but doesn't say whether
    rebate is already included.......

    Thanks

  • Are you still happy with the truck? I am considering buying the same one. What colors were available? Does the truck come with a passenger side mirror or bumper? I am interested in knowing how "stripped" it is - GMC's site does not show photos of the WT model. What time did you need to be there to buy it?
    Thank you, Jim
  • When one bought a Sierra with the off road, safe & sound, and engine pkg in 05' one received a $2500 rebate (listed right on the sticker). For 06' this rebate is ONLY $1350. So GM is automatically making another $1150 off a truck sale. And ALL the 06's I've seen so far are > $37,000. So one can FORGET this "value pricing" stuff, for it does NOT exist in the sticker price at all.

    New 2006 GMC Sierra 2500HD SLEw/Duramax diesel bought for $200.00 over invoice. :)

    AS they close out the 2006 there have been some pretty heavy rebates. Just picked up a 2006 2WD Reg Cab 1SA w/4.8l V8 & Auto tranny. I had a spray in bedliner added and after all was said and done I paid ~$14000 w/license & title, (MSRP was $22890 w/del fee) I used some GM bucks on top of the rebates after I was quoted just over invoice price. Happy Happy Happy

    This is the first time I've posted on this site and hopefully I've found the site I'm looking for.

    I need some advice. I'm looking to buy a new GMC 2500HD SLT 4WD crew cab long box diesel and will probably buy it after September 1st. I live in S/W Arizona and we have one GMC dealer here and they pretty much have the "take it or leave it" attitude as do all the other dealers in town. I'm willing to travel to just about anywhere to save the right amount of money. Aside from contacting a selected dealership in each state and trying to get the best internet price, does anyone have a better suggestion? I know the best deals can be made by buying a truck that's already on a dealer's lot and if the dealer has to go a long distance for a dealer trade, it may not be worth my effort. It's been a long time since I bought a new vehicle and internet pricing wasn't around at that time. Any adice would be appreciated.

    Email 20 or so dealers last week of the month. Inform them of your needed options, color choices and requirements, and the fact you are contacting 20 dealers and will buy before end of month. Go thru GMC/Chevy website and get their bids. After round 1 or so give the best your cell # Work the top 3 bids preferably directly with the sales manager.

    It would probably be easier to do this with Chevy Silverado 2500 as you already have a limited # of dealers where you are and GMC has about 1/4 as many dealers as Chevy. A msrp range of the one your want i.e. 33-34000 may be useful also as its inevitable that stock will have extra items you don't want.

    In the stix you may have to put in zip codes of different cities nearby and look up inventory and dealer websites within 50-100 mi of them. (google zip code, city)

    You are shooting for $7000- $8000 off a 33000 machine. I would believe the Diesels are similar to the gas models which I base this on.

    See what happens with the 20-30 dealers. Not much effort and no traveling. If you beat your local guy over the head
    with your best bid, he may match it or come close end of month to make a sale. Tell him you would like to work with the local dealership and will give him the highest marks on any customer surveys if you can make a deal.

    Good Luck

  • i was at achevy dealership earlier today and truck had an msrp of $44,084.00, a (DIP) price $40,663.55, and a (GMS) price $38,479.00. The salesman was doing a locate, and handed me this paper by mistake. What are the (dip) and (gms) prices? Should I expect to be able to purchase the vehicle at the (gms) price minus any rebates (currently $3,500.00) or what should I expect to pay. Any expert knowledge of this would be appreciated.
  • I'm not sure what DIP is, but GMS is the GM employee price..

  • so if i'm not an employee no gms price, i guess dip might be dealer invoice price.
  • thanks for the info on gms.

    Is anyone familiar with the Hard Days Work Tour where GM supposedly has $250 off coupons. Is it coming to Florida?
  • Looking at buying a GMC Sierra 1500 with 5.3L V8 4WD Crew Cab (1st truck) looking at one of the better option packages, probally a SLT version with basic towing package and offroad package. MSRP w/options ~36k-38k. I have a trade in(05 neon srt4) but kbb says 13.5k for it and thats what I still owe. Would have to do 72month finance. I also have the abilty to use GMC supplier discount. But should I try to get below that discount and only mention the discount if I cant get a better price? They also have #3500 off right now. The stock on 07's seems to be small and very few of the color I want(deep blue), They have lots of silver. Another big question is what is the difference between classic and non-classic how do I tell which is which, half the time I dont know what I am looking at?

    Lots of q's any help would be great.

    Check out the chevy silverado prices paid message board. They're basically the same thing.

  • The silverado classic is the old body style, not meny left. 2007 was the introduction of the new silverado, they also put out the classic to clear inventory. The rebates are bigger on the classics

    Dec 31, 2007 I bought a 2008 GMC Sierra 1500 WT Reg cab, 8' bed 4.3 V6 4x4, no options except for $0 cloth seats, for $15,990. I didn't want to buy new and was shopping used plow trucks, but almost everything on the dealer lots was in $22k to $24k range for 2002-2004 model year trucks. I'd found a 2002 Dodge 2500 for $15,900 but it had no powertrain warrantee and my son-in-law has almost the same truck and is on his 3rd transmission. KBB was listing a price for the Dodge that was grand or so less, and when they wouldn't move down on the price of the Dodge I balked and went to the GMC dealer as I'd seen this price advertised.

    I think the 4.3L V6 is plenty big for me. I just plow my own driveway and make a couple runs to the landfill and Home Depot once a month. I don't own a trailer.

    The dealer installed a new Fisher MinuteMount2 plow for me, 7.5ft RD for around $4100, which is probably where they made any profit on the deal.

    There was a $2000 rebate that month, but even allowing for that it was below dealer invoice according to Edmunds. Edmunds shows $21,965 MSRP including destination, and $20,808 dealer invoice, minus the $2000 rebate gives a 'real' dealer invoice of $18,808, so I figure my $15.990 price was a very good deal. My son-in-law says I stole this truck!

    I'm still amazed at what's standard on this WT. ABS brakes, tire pressure monitoring, OnStar, XM radio with CD/MP3 and iPod jack. Low washer fluid warning light. Automatic headlights. No AC and crank window though. No power windows. I had to explain to the OnStar rep that the emergency lockout (door unlock) wouldn't work without having power door locks. No AC isn't too much of a problem most of the year here in Maine. I got the truck in Silver Birch so the light color should cut down on summer heat.

    I've been very happy with my deal. Just getting up to 700 miles on the ODO after almost 3 months. 3 month XM radio runs out in a few days; I can't justfy it on a vehicle I plan to drive so little. Average fuel mileage so far is 10.5 to 11 mpg, but most has been snow plowing and travel with the plow on during storms.

    I know I probably got the advertised special they use to get the customer to come in and be up-sold. They did say they had 3 other trucks on the lot that the deal was good on (WT V6 Reg cab 4x4) so I could have had a few other colors but went with the light colored truck because no AC.

    Sounds like you got an excellent deal. I've been on the hunt for a leftover 07 or 08 Silverado/Sierra, ext cab 4x4 with the 5.3 Flex fuel engine. Found a few leftover 07 recently and dealer quotes were $500-1000 above invoice. Haven't really followed up since the rebates are still $2000 for 08s and $3000 for 07s. GM card rebate is still $1500. I guess GM anticipates a shortage soon due to the American axle strike. I have an 06 Crew 2WD and made it through another winter with no real problems. SInce the warm weather is coming, I can leisurely shop. Not quite sure, how the dealer priced yours out. You definitely got a very good deal. Enjoy.

    But I also noticed, through April, that GMC has a $4000 customer cash for previous GMC owners on Sierra and Yukon. Beats anything that Chevy has right now. They are only offering $2000, I believe.
