  1. Discounts? Can I stack them?

    The GM discounts you mentioned are gimicky compared to Ford and FCA. With Ford and FCA the first responder, Affiliate, Loyalty, Farm Bureau, teacher, college graduate are set amount rebates that typically vary between 500 and 1k and are discounted on top of best deal, even if they are not all stackable. With GM those programs (with exception of Loyalty, conquest, and Finance) are discounted from MSRP. Meaning LTs with available manufacture rebates are currently priced lower (around 10k with finance rebate) than supplier, first responder, ect. Perhaps if you are getting a High Country or LTZ those pricing discounts would be more than the rebates. IMO GM should assign a rebate value to each program that is addition to all available rebates.
  2. May incentives?

    Go to manufactures website and then select offers and then model. Will ask for zip. https://www.chevrolet.com/current-deals#?filterby=all&requestedPostalcode=75032&postalcode=75032&open-panel=silverado:silverado-1500-new
  3. May incentives?

    The lease loyalty being offered right now on various models is pretty Limited IMO
  4. May incentives?

    Yes, set by GM. You can always go to chevrolet.com or GMC.com put your zip code in and see current offers. They change the first week of the month based on sales projections. From time to time the add an extra 500 or 1k for holiday or other specials.
  5. Custom Trail Boss Console Upgrade?

    THere will be plenty popping up on ebay and craigslist as the trucks get totaled. Just keep checking.
  6. Not a heavy load tower but you need a 2500 for that anyway. With 277hp and 460 lb-ft of torque at only 1500 rpm, it will tow in the 7k range efficiently, which is what most 1/2 owners are looking to do. I’ve read unofficially the 4x4 will be rated to tow over 9k. Plus us you are getting the 10 speed transmission, even in the LT/RST/SLE configuration and if some of the complaints in the lawsuit about the 8 are true then that makes it worth it.
  7. That would be price over the 2.7. Think is something like 2450 over the 5.3 and same as 6.2.
  8. Well scratch the Gladiator. It got destroyed on Ike gauntlet tow test by TFL and didn’t do so great on tow loop. I was hoping for performance comparable to the new Ranger.
  9. Class wise yes, but the Colorado rear seat does not have enough leg room nor does the seat fold up for a flat floor. I upland and waterfowl bird hunt, so I keep my dog in his box inside the cab of the truck due to weather and to keep him from being stolen when I stop for a quick bite or something. The other midsize trucks will not allow me to put the box on the floor. The Ridgeline would but the rear door doesn't open very far, only tows 5k, requires lots of maintenance, and the truck lacks the ground clearance to get where I need to go. Rear leg room on the Gladiator is 38.3" the GM twins are 35.8 and Taco is 32.6. On the one pic I'd could take out the plastic box for flatish floor or leave in and use as shotgun case.
  10. What did you pay for your truck?

    Chevrolet running lease special on Silverado. Granted not your trim at that price, but still shows there are leases. The $289 per month would increase by the difference in Trim level price from MSRP of $38k divided by 36. I've seen RST 4x4 for 36k Ultra Low-Mileage Lease for Qualified Lessees.$289/MONTH FOR 36 MONTHS. For Everyone: $5,719 due at signing (after all offers)*. $0 security deposit. For Current Lessees of 2014 model year or newer select GM vehicles: $3,719 due at signing (after all offers)**. $0 security deposit. Tax, title, license, and dealer fees extra. Mileage charge of $0.25/mile over 30,000 miles at participating dealers. Expires 4-30-2019 *Example based on survey. Each dealer sets own price. Your payments may vary. Payments are for a 2019 CHEVROLET Silverado 1500 Crew Cab 2WD Custom w/Custom Value Package & 4.3L EcoTec3 V6 with an MSRP of $38,220. 36 monthly payments total $10,404. Option to purchase at lease end for an amount to be determined at lease signing. Lessor must approve lease. Take delivery by 04-30-2019. Lessee pays for maintenance, repair, excess wear and disposition fee of $395 or less at end of lease. Payments may be higher in some states. Not available with other offers. See dealer for details. **Current Lessees of 2014 model year or newer Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 vehicles: Payments are based on an MSRP of $38,220. 36 monthly payments total $10,404.

  11. I am cross shopping with the Gladiator (mainly due to smaller dimensions) and the Silverado is going to be considerably less. I am wanting the 2019 Crew RST 4x4 with bucket seats and diesel. If the add on is only $2450 and I am already finding the 5.3 version for 36k with rebates (trim/conquest/finance) then I am hoping there is a legit chance to get one under 40k. To get the Gladiator Sport S (mid-trim level) with auto, hardtop, 4.10 max tow, upgraded stereo, bedliner is going to run me $43k with a hefty discount (6% under invoice). I am not an avid off-roader and could really careless about the top coming off, so it's a no brainer to go with the Silverado. The draw to the Gladiator is it has the largest backseat of all the mid-size trucks and the rear seat folds flat (semi-flat floor), and up like the full size trucks. It also has rear air vents and is narrow and short enough to get into the garage without having to shuffle stuff around. I drive a Tahoe and Tundra. I find myself always driving the Tahoe because the Tundra is a PITA parking around the Dallas metro-plex.
  12. 2019 RST Z71 Rear Gear Ratio

    Like seeing the tow rating jumps from 7500 to 9300 on the diesel when going from 2WD to 4WD.
  13. Hoping Chevy looks to retake #2 truck sales spot from Ram with higher May incentives and perhaps an extra Memorial Day sale. I know incentives are usually based on sales and inventory for the previous month. Guessing April will be close or just ahead of Ram. Any owners recall good Memorials day sales?
  14. How much will prices drop?

    Thanks, I am in Dallas and see the cars.com adds all the time for them. I was wondering if they were one of the post the lowest price with every single rebate stacked plus 2k in add-ons type dealer. I will give them a shout.
  15. How much will prices drop?

    I am in the market for a T1. I will most likely be getting the diesel depending on how the tow numbers work out. T1 improvements in my opinion should have included bucket seat option in LT trim, also LT trim an above should have included rear arm rest and storage option, only $225. Also very few LTs are being ordered with the Safety I package. If I was ordering for a dealer, I would order quite a few with the Safety I and back seat options in LT trim. With that said, I could not stand several things with the K2 including no rear air vents above the floor, uncomfortable front and rear seats, and too much vibration in the driveline. I will deal with the T1 shortcomings over the K2's shortcomings and issues.
