  1. I went and drove the truck, truck was great lots of power just couldn't get there on price. New seems to be the way to go with the deals at the moment. I got them down to $40,100 and manager said they are making $500 at that price. They have a ton of 5.3s can get a LTZ for right at $40k. But can go a state or two away and for around $4k more get the 6.2 in SLT premium plus and when you do the math its a much better deal.
  2. I'm in Georgia. Since I found out that the 3:23 are rated at 9100 that honestly is all I need, it's just by luck that this one had the 3:42s. I do like the seat of the pants feel, but I have a car and other 4x4s for that so it really doesn't factor in. This truck will serve professional use for work as well as hauling kids, plus all of our gear hunting/fishing etc... This truck will probably be a 50/50 split from my other daily driver but could see a good 15k-20k miles a year still. I'm going to drive it here in a little bit just because I'm not going a state or two away and pickup a model I've never sat in. It will give me a feel for the platform, I've been in my buddies '15 LTZ but its been a while.
  3. Local dealer has a '17 SLT premium plus seems to be as loaded as you can get in SLT. Not my preferred color but its quicksilver metallic and not a bad choice. 32,xxx Miles on the truck. Asking price was $43,xxx - They now have it down to right under $41k. These truck are holding high value in this area, at that price it doesn't have me jumping on it. I'd probably offer $36k Hoping they would come in under $38k and I would have to do some thinking. What's your guys thoughts, what would be your offer? I can go one state over and get the exact truck I would like but not 3:42 for brand new for right under $44k. $3k savings and 32k miles makes that deal look much bigger. That price gets closer to mid 30's its looking better to me.
  4. Look what 3/4 and 1 tons had HP and TQ wise back in the 90s a whole lot less than most 1500s now. I guess it has a lot to do with weight and stopping power more than what they can actually pull.
  5. Looks like 9400 with 6 speed, 9300 with 8 speed. https://www.gmc.com/content/dam/gmc/na/us/english/index/about/trailering-towing/02-pdfs/GMTB18CT100-2018-gmc-trailering-guide.PDF
  6. Thanks for the reply, I'm on the search for a purchase.
  7. So reading the trailer and towing guide on GM site. I'm looking for the 6.2 with the 3:42 finding there are way more 3:23 (where I'm looking at least). So I thought max tow on 1500 got you to the ~ 9,300 lbs. According to this. Max tow gets you the 9.76" ring gear with 3:43 and the way it reads seems like that is 12,500 lbs. I probably would only look to pull ~ 7-8k a few times a year, is the 9300 lbs available on on 3:23 standard SLT ( I thought this was around 7200lbs) Sorry if that is worded confusingly, but if I'm covered to 9300 on the 3:23 that may help in the search. Edit just finally saw the detail diagram looks like it is 9100 on the 4wd shortbox
  8. Emailed a dealer about a 6.2 asking what was on the lot with 3:42 since the don't actually publish the actual window sticker. He said they didn't have any 3:42 only 3:08. Is that even a gear option on the 6.2 I thought it was 3:23 or 3:42. This is more fore my knowledge thanks!

  10. Yes I saw this too seeing a lot of 6.2 Denali's still on lots. I wish they had an SLT to get it down more, last new car I bought was through them as well going back a few years though.
  11. Thanks Folks, I used to buy ATVs up in TN new because a better deal, not sure why didn't think same about truck. The Albertville dealer is only 140 miles from me too, so that's nothing. Will broaden up the search range.
  12. Best I've seen on new SLT with discounts posted online is around here is around $45k. Also getting hard to find, I'm seeing a ton of Denali's but not many SLTs left. If I could scoop up a new for under $40k I'd jump on that. Longer the month goes on better they maybe willing to negotiate down that way. Trucks seem to fetch a premium here in North GA.
  13. 3rd owner is kind of a concern to me....but If I was going to custom tune and figure I'd be getting screwed by GM anyways might be a better deal to go 2017 or 2018 used.
  14. Wow not seeing any deals like that here...but noticed it does say take delivery. If I don't find one local is it common to buy out of state and ship not sure what kind of charges that would look like.
  15. Wanted to see if I could get some opinions on a price for a certified truck. Local Chevy dealer has a certified '18 Sierra SLT with the 6.2 4wd. Car fax showing 2 owners, traded in around 19k and now has about 32k miles. They are asking $41k, getting closed to end of the year. Pretty interested in this truck, do you think a stretch to possible get this think down the $37-$38k price if I bring them a check no financing through GM? I am in Georgia also. Just curious if anyone has tracked values of used 15+'s
