Wow.... local dealer here has 91 AT4’s in stock. I think 82 of them are 2020 models and are advertised at over 8,000 off MSRP. That is not a “get you the door discount”. You can get more off than that. I have bought 5 trucks from them since 2012 and no one else in this area even comes close to their deals. My salesman tells me they have people fly in from all over the country to buy and drive em home. They are one of the top volume dealers in the country. https://www.everettbgmc.com/VehicleSearchResults?model=Sierra 1500&trim=Crew Cab Short Box 4-Wheel Drive AT4
This.....unless your constantly looking at your speedo it’s too easy to get behind someone doing under the speed limit and not notice it. My wife’s QX80 has adaptive cruise and after trying it a couple of times I never use it anymore. It has three distance sensors and even at the shortest range, it slows you down so far back of the vehicle in front of you it is just hard to sense unless people are going around you at a fast pace. To me it’s a worthless option.
Sounds like the dealership misfigured the Arkansas tax. Arkansas makes you pay taxes on the extended warranty if you buy one plus you pay tax on any dealer rebates. Many states don’t. Last vehicle I bought in Texas, I tried to tell them how to figure the tax since they make you pay taxes at dealership at time of deal. Of course they still screwed it up and I had to pay the extra amt when I got the tags. They didn’t do anything shady, just got the taxes wrong.
They are selling here. This is a volume dealer. They get two or three transports of vehicles a day from GM and sell several hundred vehicles a month across the GMC and Buick lineup. They don’t make their money off the deal. They make their money from GM for the amount of units they move. The more they move, the more they make. We also receive a tax credit on our trade-ins. They give you 20,000 on your trade, that’s 20,000 off the top you pay no tax on. I have bought several vehicles out of state and still get that credit when I go to license the vehicle. In Arkansas you don’t pay the tax at the dealership. You take the paperwork to the DMV and pay the tax and license the vehicle. I can assure you the discounts are legit. As I stated, their online pricing is a starting point. When I went in, they started out at 11,000 off MSRP and 1000.00 over top kbb price on my trade. Then they went up to 2000.00 on my trade. The next morning, my salesman called me and said they would come off 12,000 on the MSRP. Only reason I didn’t buy is we are looking at a new house. 2020 models will be discounted this next fall. LOL. They are a great dealership. My wife is on her 4th Infiniti QX80 we bought from their Infiniti dealership across the interstate. They also have a Chevrolet and Ford dealership. If you want to save some money, drive your trade down there and enjoy a road trip. Call my salesman, Brian Cornwell, and tell him Russell sent you. He can assure you, the prices are legit. I have bought 5 trucks from him. Good luck on your purchase no matter where you buy.
I have a volume dealer about an hour from me in Arkansas. They have 16 2019 AT4’s in stock and 12 of em have 6.2engine. They have a 10,000 discount listed online for the most expensive ones. I have bought 5 pickups from them and went in a couple of months ago to trade but changed my mind. They offered me 12,000 off and 2,000 above kbb value on my trade. Right now they already have 23 2020 models in. Every one of them have the 6.2 engine. Not listing any discounts on them yet but I am sure you could get several thousand off. Looks like there is no problem for a dealer to get a 6.2 AT4 if they order them. I think your dealer is just not ordering them. They are for sure not trying to give you a deal. https://www.everettbgmc.com/VehicleSearchResults?search=new&year=2020&model=Sierra 1500&trim=Crew Cab Short Box 4-Wheel Drive AT4
Don’t think so....... it’s not like when they first started out. Units were plug and play. Now they are hard wired into every system of the vehicle. You try to unhook it now and your dash will light up like a Christmas tree. I am with you on not not wanting OnStar. I don’t like the aspect that GM puts it in every vehicle, makes the consumer pay for it while they sell the info it gathers. If it was a dealer option to install or not at point of sell (which it easily could be), it would not be viable for them to continue to offer it. If you holler too loud about OnStar on forums, people will just tell you to get more aluminum foil to wear. They don’t mind giving up their freedoms.
Hate the adaptive cruise control myself. We have had it quite a while in the wife’s QX80 Infiniti. You are able to turn it off and just use it as regular cruise control if you like, which I do.
Never said it wasn’t a great tool. I said if all you rely on was a backup camera each time while backing, you are encouraging disaster. Accidents happen from time to time no matter how much care we use to avoid them. People do foolish things when not giving full attention to the activity at hand. UPS driver in that case was completely at fault for not clearing the space before backing even if the bicyclist wasn’t paying attention to his surroundings. (And some of us still don’t have cell phones... never have owned one and never plan on owning one no matter how much my wife and family berate me over the fact. IMO, cell phones are like backup cameras. They are a convenience, not a necessity)
I drove a truck for UPS for 34 years. We only had backup cameras for the last half of my career. They are life savers.... No doubt. If you only rely on a backup camera when you back, you are asking for trouble. Nothing beats looking in the mirrors and keeping your head on a swivel the whole time you are moving. The way we were taught " If in doubt, get out and check it out." Too many times I watch people driving that are so focused on looking down the hood of their vehicle, with a death grip on their steering wheel. They are oblivious to anything else that is happening around them. The least amt. of backing you can do is best. Its where the largest amt of accidents occur. If you must back, back first before parking while you are aware of traffic situation around you. Then you can pull out head first instead of backing into traffic. All that to say you dont have to have a backup camera to be safe if you follow some basic driving techniques. Glad I have a camera but it is not a necessity.
Dealership near me advertises their demos and loaners around 1500.00 more off than brand new. Most of em have around 5000 on the odometer. Here is an AT4 they currently have for about 1400.00 off on top of regular discount even though they will discount much more. I have negotiated about 15000.00 off a brand new AT4 I hope to go get this week. https://www.everettbgmc.com/VehicleDetails/new-2019-GMC-Sierra_1500-Crew_Cab_Short_Box_4_Wheel_Drive_AT4-Bryant-AR/3411419343
Everett GMC in Arkansas has their AT4 at 11,300 off on the 66,000 truck and 10,xxx off on 63,000. I have bought 5 pickups from them since 2012. Always get a great deal. https://www.everettbgmc.com/VehicleSearchResults?model=Sierra 1500&trim=Crew Cab Short Box 4-Wheel Drive AT4&sort=savings|desc
