Used to be eight weeks average from start to delivery.
Buddy of mine is being told before Christmas for his Denali, dealer south of Red Deer. I'm not sure on the price, but it wouldn't matter for him anyways.I still can't build a 2017 on the Canadian, gmcanada.ca web site. Can't get prices either. Couple of weeks ago the dealer couldn't give me a price of the 2017 2500 HDs.
The web site is still pushing the 2016s. And the local newspapers give about $13,000 off the window sticker on a 2017 Duramax. Likely get a few more thousand off a 2016 for a cash deal.
If it is anything like the transition from '05 to '06, there was about a $6,000 difference between the two. '06 did get a six speed, but other than that, they where basically the same truck.
So if you need a new one, is the unknown price increase worth the wait? Maybe not.
I HAD A BUILD DATE OF DEC 12TH & THE DEALER SAID ABOUT 4-5 WEEKS AFTER THAT BECAUSE THE TRAIN MUST CLEAR CUSTOMS ONCE IT ENTERS US THEN CAR CARRIER CAN DELIVER TO DEALERSHIPBuddy of mine is being told before Christmas for his Denali, dealer south of Red Deer.
