2015 Pricing Information

I am continuing my quest to purchase a 2015 Silverado Duramax 2500HD 4x4 LTZ and 2015 Tahoe 4x4 LTZ. While there appears to be plenty of inventory showing up, I have yet to get any pricing that I consider to be competitive or comparable to the last several Chevys I have bought.

I am now working with dealer number 4, which is at least giving me some more data to work with. I did not want to be chasing a deal all over the place, but that seems to be where I am at.

Anyway, the two dealers I have bought my last several vehicles from have proven to be totally inept, poor communications, trying to sell me 14s and 1/2 tons, and just plain lazy. So far I have had very good luck communicating with Gateway Chevrolet in Avondale, Arizona and Dave Smith Motors in Kellogg, Idaho. Here is some data I have gathered from them to get to a deal.

Gateway Chevrolet (provided me "their" invoices)

Duramax MSRP = $61,705.50
Invoice = $58,055.00
Difference = $3,649.50 or 5.9%
Total Less Holdback and Wholesale Finance Credit = $63,556.05
Difference = $6,191.25 or 10%

Tahoe MSRP = $70,410.00
Invoice = $66,568.50
Difference = $3,841.50 or 5.4%
Total Less Holdback and Wholesale Finance Credit = $63,556.05
Difference = $6,853.95 or 9.7%

Dave Smith Motors (approximate numbers given via phone)

Tahoe MSRP = $68,000.00+
Invoice = $64,000.00+
Difference = $4,000.00+ or 5.9%
Total Less Holdback and Wholesale Finance Credit = $62,000.00+
Difference = $6,000.00+ or 8.8%

I am still a little unsure whether these invoice prices are correct. I thought on average for this type of vehicle there was 10% +/- between invoice and MSRP. Any thoughts from others on invoice prices or what you are seeing?

We are not getting any help from GM on rebates or other incentives either, so I guess we wait and see if they intend to get more competitive.

I have seen a couple others post some pricing that seems to be a little more competitive than what I am getting. I hope that trend continues.

The hunt continues.....................

I just placed an order for a 2015 3500HD SRW LT 4WD CC/LB Z71. The MSRP was $57,420.

I negotiated with several dealers via email and eventually got one of them to sell it to me for $52,676 which is about $200 below the invoice price.

After emailing dealers for about 2 weeks straight I decided that $200 below invoice was the best I was going to be able to do right now since the truck was just released.

Also if for some reason GM decides to do incentives or rebates in 2 months when I take delivery, I will get those subtracted from my price. I think its a long shot in that happening but you never know.

Sounds like a pretty decent deal, about what I am seeing too. It looks like they could still kick in a little on their holdback allowance. See if you can pinch them for another $1000 or see if you can get some accessories or maintenance discounts. Either way, it's going to be an awesome truck.

I just got an all in number from Gateway for about $100,500 OTD for both vehicles. Not bad when you consider our sales and vehicle license tax add back in about 11% of the price of the vehicle.

That includes pretty decent trade $ for my 05 Duramax at $17K and the 07 Tahoe at $16.5K, that is about low end of what I think I could sell them for locally. Plus I get about $3K in savings with reduced sales tax.

I told him that I really appreciated the communications, which have been timely and responsive. I told him we were still a little ways apart and we should keep talking. He actually said he would go back and work to see what else he could do and maybe find another $5k. I said if you can get me $10K its done. He seems to be working hard and is a real nice guy, I will buy from them if we close the gap.

D.Camilleri just ordered a 2015 2500 for less than 61% of MSRP.

I still think it's too good to be true, even for a fleet bid for a hundred trucks, much less one truck.

Your Gateway Chevrolet quote looks about right. Those numbers can easily be found online that will show you the invoice and MSRP. The days of getting 10% off MSRP have been gone for some time and they continue to shrink the margin following most imports. The only thing to do is wait for incentives to come out. I bet they will have to be huge based on some of the new pricing. GM released an article some time ago that they were going to increase prices and try to offset some of the cost in the form of rebates. It appears this is what they are doing, but is yet to be seen pending rebate numbers.

I just hope that they dont do like they have in the past few years. The past 2 years and last year on the '14 1500 they did a mid year price increase. I guess we will see.
