How are 2019 silverado sales?

Recommended Posts

I saw 3 new Rams and two GM twins (a blue RST Silverado and a black Sierra Denali) while I was out and about today.

The RAM front end in person... IMHO..... are lackluster. Not real pronounced or what I would call "Bold"

Pretty much looks like a Durango coming at you.

I’d have to agree. Rams look good but kind of boring imo. It’s their interior that was a grand slam.

I actually like the look of the durango, the Ram not so much.

I live in NY about an hour outside the city and i have yet to see a 2019 silverado or Sierra on the road. I have seen them on the lots just not driving. I have seen quite a few of the new Dodge Rams.

I saw one in December and four last week.

The rear quarter panels on the new Ram look funny to me.

I've seen zero twins up until yesterday. I saw an RST and an AT4 within twelve hours.....I live in the heart of truck/chevy country and not seeing these trucks on the road in larger numbers is not a good sign. People around here will live in card board box so they can have the latest truck and the newest fastest bass boat....The idea that these trucks arent moving in this solid economy is very telling.

 

The dealer up the road is now well supplied with Trail Bosses but they are just sitting there because they want sticker while the Ram dealership across the street is offering 20% as a starting place..

RAM is the most Car-Like of the bunch. Honestly, I do not think that is a good thing when you are talking trucks.

Otherwise, why not save half the price and go for a Honda Ridgeline if all you want is a car with a bed.

See that’s the thing. A lot of would be suv buyers like the crew cab truck. More utility. And Ram is the most family friendly.  Big cab , luxuorious and amenities.  If this was 80s yes you have a point but IMO These are different days now. Trucks rule and all of them loaded are all pretty close to each other in terms of performance. So what is next deciding factor? Interior/smooth ride

Seems like when the k2 launched their was a tremendous amount of activity and buzz. Fast forward to the T1 platform and it does not appear as strong to me. Could all just be winter conditions for many parts of the country.

The K2 trucks came out in the summer of 2013, and I don't remember the sales really picking up on them until well into 2014. Another thing hurting the T1 is many dealers, at least around here, still have 20-30 new K2s on the lot. They can't afford to really discount the T1 until they get rid of those K2s.

GM's Lack of Advertising sure was not the way to introduce T1.

 

Also, Still producing and selling 2019 K2 "legacy" models absolutely Does Not help T1 sales.
