Taking a step

I just sent, through Edmunds, price quote requests to 4 local GMC dealers for a 2007 Sierra. We'll see if they are interested in getting back with me, and what kind of discounts they'll offer. Edmunds says I should be able to buy the truck for $600 under MSRP.

The truck I spec'd:

2WD regular cab shortbed

SLE1 decor package

LY5 5.3L engine

G80 locking differential, 3.42 ratio

SLE1 Preferred Package

Stealth Gray with Dark/Light Titanium interior

MSRP: $26,460.

I have a purchase price, a downpayment, and a monthly payment ceiling in mind. Now I'll wait to see which dealer responds with the best price. Wish me luck.

Good luck! I test drove an SLE2 Crewcab 4x4 with the 5.3 and Z71 package...and it drove great! The steering is SO much better! The dealership asked me what I'd "want" in an extended cab as they were placing orders...so in THEORY they could order the truck that I want...but we'll see. I'm still debating between the 5.3 and the 6.0...and the SLT x-cab 4x4 with 6.0 is pushing 40K...SO I may need to wait a bit on that!

Well, I heard from two of the four dealerships I contacted so far, both thanking me for my interest in the 2007 Sierra crewcab. :rolleyes:

Even though I checked the box requesting only email correspondence, both places called my house and left messages in addition to the emails.

I wrote back to both clarifying what I'm looking for. Hopefully now, everything will gel.

Good luck with this Ocn... your Colorado is very nice, but I think you'll be happier in a full-sizer again. Plus you choose GMC, so you know you're getting my :thumbsup: on this one! Definitely keep us posted on what happens.

Btw, I snuck into the local Buick-Pontiac-GMC dealership yesterday to grab the all-new 2007 Sierra and 2007 Acadia brochures. Only one regular cab Sierra pictured in the entire booklet, and not even a good shot at that (at least it was pictured in the dark blue :P ). I was thinking we'd get the OUTLOOK when the Envoy lease expires in 2008, especially because of the other two Saturns in the driveway, but the pictures of the Acadia in its brochure definitely have caught my attention. It will be a tough choice come summer of 2008 (this time, we're looking to buy rather than lease - family duty (trips, short & long) will be its primary responsibility).

Ocn, I will say that if you end up getting the all-new 2007 Sierra, I will be jealous! :hissyfit:

:lol::):lol::):lol::P

Nah, I had an '02 Silverado of the same style (it was a "Base Plus" with 4.8 and I modded it a bit), it was a nice truck, but I want the improvements everyone is raving about, plus, I really like the style of the new ones.

Yeah, I don't know what I was reading when I wrote that--I must have just seen the word old somewhere.

Are regular cabs on any lots yet, or even in production?

Yeah, there's a thread about Fort Wayne starting regular and extended cab production up in the Chevy truck section.

Yeah, so there's still at most only a few out there right now. Pretty limited supply, I would think.

Trading or selling is up in the air right now. If anyone here wants my Colorado, PM me. It's been great, but a new toy calls. By factory ordering, I have 6-8 weeks before it comes in, normally, so I have a few weeks to decide.

Well, tonight I put 2 dealers against each other. One dealership about 15 miles away quoted a lower price than the one 6 miles away, so I asked if they could match it. If they can match, I am going to go ahead with this.
