Insight on new GMC vehicle purchase
 

 
Alright my BX brethren, my wife and I just got into a new home this year and we're needing a truck more and more. Upgrades and add ons to our home have started. We have a pair of Cadillac ATS AWD and the GMC dealership has promised us 50k trade in value.

I got a promotion at work this year and the money is starting to roll in. She wants an SUV because of the kids and even though I don't really want one, I gotta get a truck to carry all the boxes and home improvement sh*t in.

I love fast cars, from modded bmws, modded 370z's and now my boosted ATS'. its time to move on and settle down from always testing my luck. (Ticket free for 9 years)

We plan on buying the following vehicles and using our 50k trade in w an extra 25k down.

Im looking for tips or advice on this venture I'm about to go on ordering GMCs. What should I look out for? Any common mistakes when ordering. These vehicles will arrive in 4-5 months. The dealer didnt even have any for us to test drive so we may look elsewhere.

I ordered a Escalade in March. It was just built last week. When ordering, they should inform you of all options that are unavailable at the current time. For example, adaptive cruise control was not available to be equipped on GM trucks a few weeks ago. The ish changes on a weekly basis. Just make sure you consider leaving out options to get it quicker or holding out to get more features.

Also, the GM website is behind. You can't order a 2022 anymore. The factory is on 2023 orders now.

Why not a Tundra and 4runner for that price? They depreciate a lot less over time and hold up way better

Man they been trying to get me to build my Escalade and I just ainít comfortable with that, then itís a 4-6 month wait too.

Guess Iíll be waiting until 2023 and hope the dealership start getting them inventory back up.

To me it doesn't sound like you need a truck, sounds like you would be fine with an SUV of your choosing.

People who NEED trucks, for truck purposes, don't get luxury class GMCs for various reasons. Why spend that amount for a truck you will beat up. GM, whether it be GMC or Chevy, just cant make a good fu*ken truck going on 10+ years. I have many friends who are contractors with fleets of trucks and all have abandoned them because they just don't hold up. Their fleets are now Fords or Rams.

I beat my trucks up. I bring them to payload capacity, they haul to the cap, they get their use. Ram and Tundra have been making the best pick-ups for the last 6+ years. Ford would be the next tier down. The Nissan Titan will be the next tier down. Then after that I would put GM trucks in that 4th tier.

If you are going to pay a premium to order a vehicle customized to your wants, get something you absolutely want.

Yea Inventories for GM trucks are bad right now. I first started looking in 2021 and every time I would find one for sale on cars.com, I'd show up or call and it was already sold. My only option was to order and wait or pay a $10k-$30k over MRSP for one already on the lot.

Is the dealer adding any required extras or marking up the vehicles?

Economy about to get super ugly. If your cars are paid off, I recommend waiting another 6 months to a year to see exactly how bad it’s going to be.

The dealer told me there is a 5k-10k markup already populating on the website.

We borrowing a truck more and more often my dude. I want my interior to be as nice as my Cadillac's was. I didn't know interiors like that existed because I had sportcentric vehicles all the time. Audi, VW, Honda, BMW and Nissans.

We bought a gazebo recently, borrowed a truck. Bought a fancy a*s grill, borrowed a truck. I got half my gym equipment, borrowed a truck....like bruh...I love my fast whip but its time. I don't need an 800hp truck but I want it to have all the tech goodies inside.

I'm a ford guy so take this w a grain of salt...but why pay more for the GMC over a Chevy? Are the finishes that much nicer?

I'm not hating, I like the ones you picked and I'm not listening to the "not right time to buy" crowd, the right time is when you need it. I just wouldn't get a Lincoln over a ford, I feel like I'm paying a premium for a different logo when the mechanicals are all the same.

I used to have a 4Runner... and bought a grill, gym equipment (Olympic weight set, unassembled squat rack and bench specifically), moved furniture, got bags of dirt and wood chips for the yard, bought a snowblower, bought a lawn mower etc. etc...and it all fit and was transportable in that midsize SUV (not all at once of course). You would prefer a full size SUV which has even more space.

Properly analyze this period of your life. Will this be a standard for years or is it just something that is going on right now?

You don't seem to be a truck guy. Me, I love trucks, my pride and joy is my 90s GMC truck with a duramax engine that has over 800K miles on it. It was used by lumber companies in Maine to haul trees. It's a work truck, it has no luxury, runs beautifully, and can take a beating. That's what adds value to me about trucks, and why I love them.

You seem to be a man of a little more finer taste, a little more class, little more luxury...a truck doesn't seem to fit your wants and lifestyle, maybe a SUV fits that?

Don't be like my buddy Bob (real guy) who has a fully loaded Ford F350 diesel (thing is a beast) but the toughest thing that truck sees are the wife's grocery bags every Saturday morning. At one time Bob convinced himself that his life justified a truck, and Bob always goes big. Bob would really love to have a Benz GLS, Lexus LX, or even a Lincoln Navigator, and to be honest that is more his style, but he dropped $90K for a truck so that is what he has.

What problems are you having, just curious? I have an 18' SLT w/ Z71 package. I put KO2s on it and have hauled, mudded, ran through snow/sleet no prob. I have had some weird electrical issues but other then that it's a tank.
