Pastusak.t started following How Much Of The Silverado Body Is Shared With 1500's?, Trailer Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TTPMS), Ordering Process and and 4 others
I don’t know if any others will work but, I did talk to my local dealer about this cuz I noticed most dealers aren’t ordering the option. They quoted me 72$ for four sensors and you have them installed at a local tire shop. You may want to look around maybe your dealer is just price gouging.
So I haven’t really found the answer I’m looking for by searching. If it’s out there just point me in the right direction. I feel like to get what I want and not pay for what I don’t, I’ll need to order a truck. I’ve never done that before so I have a few questions. First, how does the process work? Is the deposit refundable? Should I put a deposit down? Do I negotiate the price when ordered or when it arrives? Second can you get the same deals on a ordered truck that you can on a truck already on the lot. I know 20% off msrp is good maybe 22-23% is great but is that possible when ordering? Thanks for the input and if this info is already out there, I’m sorry for asking again, just point me to it.
One-inch-lower bed lift-in height compared to the 2019 Sierra Heavy Duty, providing easier loading and fifth-wheel and gooseneck trailer hitching11 Direct from gmc website. https://media.gmc.com/media/us/en/gmc/vehicles/sierra_hd_denali/2020.html
Lifted? No Gm hd has a lift installed from factory and the load floor is actually 1 inch lower than previous gen. I don’t have a fifth wheel so couldn’t tell you myself but I’m sure there is no difference from previous trucks.
I think they have actually fixed this on the new 2020. I noticed that the max gvwr on a gas 2500 is 10650 and a diesel 2500 is 11350. Effectively eliminating the diesels weight difference
First at4 HD doesn’t have a lift. As far as HD’s go, a similarly equipped at4 and slt are virtually the same price. The difference being exterior and interior styling. (Color matched bumper vs chrome, at4 specific interior colors, at4 has black accents slt is chrome) I assume the OP prefers the looks of the at4 vs slt. The Denali will be 1000 more mostly because of the leather used on the interior. With the price being the same why not get the styling you want. Only way I could see a slt being much cheaper (All options equal) is if gm was doing some sort of slt only incentive.
I believe the size is very similar just different materials and styling.
However it looks as tho the Sierra and Silverado HD share a large number of panels this go around. I guess that’s how they minimize cost.
This is exactly my point. All I’m saying is a pickup is designed for a specific market. And that market doesn’t allow for a crazy high selling price. Average transaction price of a pickup is in the 40k neighborhood. Your semi is 150k plus. That extra 90k goes an awful long way to r&d and creature comforts. Now sell a 3/4 or 1ton for 150k and I bet they’d be on par with each other. I’m also sure they wouldn’t sell at all. It wouldn’t make sense to spend billions on r&d and not get a return on it. As far as the creature comforts that are in your semi... they sure as hell better be there for the asking price. All I’m saying is your not comparing apples to apples. Listen I know I’m getting you all rev’d up (pardon the pun) but there is obviously a reason every manufacturer on earth hasn’t figured this out yet. And if you think it is so easy to accomplish then I’m sure you’ll have your pick of oem’s to work for because the first manufacturer to accomplish it will dominate in sales. I read this forum almost every day and I agree with you on most every issue but to say oem’s can achieve a far better fuel economy number and just choose not to isn’t real world. There are other factors there we may not be seeing.
So let’s ask this question. You constantly rant on here about how your semi is far superior to a pickup in all aspects of driving. Why do you even own a pickup. Shouldn’t you, by your claims, be driving a semi as a daily driver. Probably not. There are all kinds of reasons why that would be impractical. Also, the big rig semi oem’s have way more incentive to increase fuel mileage and the customer would gladly pay for better fuel economy because it affects their bottom line. The average consumer on a pickup wouldn’t pay a premium for fuel economy, as I’ve seen you argue in the diesel vs gas issue. You personally bought a gas instead of a diesel because the diesel, even tho it gets far better fuel economy, won’t pay for itself for a long time. There is a business decision that is being made here and on a consumer pickup, fuel economy isn’t as important for most as other features may be. You already have a option for better fuel economy in a diesel version of the same truck and as you know those sell about 30% to gas 70%. Not saying that you are wrong about it being possible, just not practical. This isn’t a case of “if you build it they will come“.
