  1. It's crazy with what they are giving for these trades. Last month I traded in my 18 Silverado Crew LT Z71 with roughly 500 less miles than you and I got $38K trade in + the tax rebate was about $2600 on top of that. Just sucks though that in a way not getting too much off of the new vehicles MSRP, ends up a bit of a wash when you look at the grand picture. I got lucky when I bought my RAM because Chrysler was doing 0% for 72 months and they were doing $4500 off MSRP. Then weeks later, some dealers were only giving $500-1000 off MSRP only. While many of got really good deals on our
  2. It sucks to see the column shifter having gone away, especially with the new redesign. GM was holding tight to this for so many years. I do hate the console shifter, and agree as that is a total waste of space.
  3. I hate that "rotary dial" shifter in the Chrysler vehicles. You know how many times out of habit I have gone to turn the dial on the radio in my RAM and almost went to turn the "rotary dial" shifter by mistake. I am not a fan of that. At first I thought the button shifters were so odd on our '21 Tahoe, but I got used to them and do not mind them at all. I know some people are complaining of the new interior with these sneak peeks, but it doesn't look too bad. If I was in the market for a new truck, this would be a nice upgrade over my recently traded-in '18 Silverado. T
  4. Nice. Post some pics of that TRX, it is one nice truck and damn expensive to boot too.
  5. It will be interesting once these chip shortages sort themselves out because so many of the manufacturers have cars and trucks sitting at plant parking lots waiting for these chips. If they have an over abundance of these vehicles where supply outweighs demand, is it possible once they catch up that these vehicles could get better discounts down the road even with inflation so they can clear out this backlogged inventory? I hear that Uconnect 5 is awesome, from the videos that I have seen they have refined this quite a bit. Uconnect and that oversized screen do take quite a bit of
  6. It is why I love this forum, for forum members like you guys that do not take to offense when people are switching brands and not even bashing GM, just sharing their opinions. If the new 21 Tahoe is any indication, there is still hope that GM will come out with something special in 2023/2024 since I just read that they did confirm the delays for the new interiors in the 2022's. Who knows how long this darn chip shortage will last. It is affecting engines where now GM has to go with straight V8's, on the RAM's customers on new trucks are getting only 1 key fob with an IOU on the 2nd
  7. LOL! I know how that works. I'll probably see the new 2022/2023 Silverado's and want to switch back down the road.
  8. I honestly have no clue what you are talking about, but for starters I never created this thread. I was responding to someone else on here with regards to my experience and making a change over to a RAM. I guess if you would have checked to see who started this thread, because for one it wasn't me, and even read my posts it would be a total different story. Then lets add I've been on these forums for several years, having owned a Colorado, Silverado, and we just bought a 21 Tahoe a few months back. Not sure what you are trying to achieve, but not once in any of my comments did I beat up GM.
  9. Not by much right now. We did get $4500 off MSRP and then there was about $3K in rebates but we opted to do the 0% for 72 months so you lose out on the rebates. When I was at the Chevy dealer looking at the Trail Boss they were only discounting it about $4k and didn’t include any rebates or 0% financing. We paid a bit over $60k after the dealer discount off MSRP. I bet if we weren’t in this crazy time where car prices are through the roof this thing would of been a good $5k or so less. That’s where the same thing can be said for the trade-in values too considering what I got for my
  10. Thank you! The trade-in values were just too good to pass up. Just hope that I don't regret going to the dark side. My wife is like you are stuck with this one for several years, can't keep trading them in every 3 years. LOL!
  11. I am cross posting here from the resell thread since it is relevant with the conversation. I just traded in my 2018 Z71 Crew 2LT last night and was able to get $40K for it. Crazy to think that I bought this for $37k about 2.5 years ago. I did contemplate going with a 21 LT Trail Boss, but after some back and forth on how much the inside of the truck felt a bit too similar to my 2018, I ended up going with a 21 Laramie and decided to give RAM a shot after how much we really liked test driving a few Laramie's and one Limited. I've been a life long GM fan, my second vehicle that I had

  13. In the past if the dealer was less than CarMax on a trade, I've shown them the appraisal to even get them to match the offer. The dealer of course always makes out in the end, regardless how much we think we've taken them for.
  14. Totally agreed on that. It is good for competition, look at what Ford has done with their Platinum trim and the dash/interior. While I am not a fan of their trucks, the more innovation the better to push these car manufacturers to keep upgrading their trucks.
  15. GM has done an awesome job with their camera systems. I absolutely love the HD surround camera and what they have done. Everytime I drive the Tahoe, I am amazed with it and wish I had the same in my truck. LOL! I do also like the old school climate control knobs, but it appears surely but slowly we could be going away from that as each car manufacturer tries to one up the other. The Laramie and Limited we drove, I believe had the split screen which was quite neat that you can have the radio on the top of the screen and navigation on the bottom. Tha
