did it again

Recommended Posts

Today I went and factory ordered a pickup truck.  :smilewide:

 

2015 Chevy Colorado LT extended cab 4X4

Cyber Gray/Jet Black cloth interior

3.6L V6

Convenience Package (remote start, rear defogger, EZ-lift tailgate, foglamps)

G80 Locker

Trailering package (a forced bundle with the G80 rear end)

 

$32,520 MSRP.

 

Salesdude says he will email me an order number as soon as he gets it, so I can track its progress through GM's system.  I'll post updates along the way, in case anyone's interested.

Well if it's another $3k higher than the 3.6, I could not justify it.

Yes, it is a sweet little car.  It will be for sale or trade, if anyone is interested.

Very Cool, Looking forward to hearing all about it and the tracking of the build.

 

I understand the cost of the TDI being an issue.

 

Best of luck with the truck.

Thanks all.  I had a green WT all built in my head with a bunch of options.  Ended up being about $400 cheaper than the LT I ordered.  I figured I could have a nicer overall truck if I forgot about the spray-in liner ($475), wheel flares ($370) and green paint (priced at $475).  I actually ordered Laser Blue, after repeated assurances by my salesdude that the restriction (noted on the Chevy Build & Price site) had been lifted on that color... then as I was pulling in to my garage coming home from ordering and giving them a deposit, he called and said when they actually went in to order the truck, the restriction is still on for at least another month.  I had two choices, wait or change the color.  The green, blue or gray were always my favorite colors on this truck, so I am not bummed in the end.  Having driven one, I can say this is far and away the best "small" truck GM has ever built.  They discounted the price from $32,520 to $31,300, and they're giving me $1100 more than I currently owe on the VW.  I'm excited to be "coming home" to GM!

Congrats, Bill!! I know you're excited! The gray is turning out to be a popular color on the Twins. I'm waiting to order my Canyon, hoping that some good news comes out of the upcoming Detroit show? If not I'll head over to my GMC dealer and put in my order :smilewide:

Whoa, frosty!  Cool man!  Yeah, it seems to be a good all around choice, the Cyber Gray.

Congrads. Truly an awesome looking truck. I have seen 3 in the last 2 days around here in B-More. I don't have the patience to order. How long did he say before U have keys in hand?

 

What's crazy is that I think I remember U having one of these

Yes sir, I did have one, for far too short a time.  And thanks!  He said 8 weeks.  But I got my order number today, quicker than a lot of other guys over on the Colorado/Canyon forums.  Psyched!

:huh: 3000? What does that mean? 3000 issues to resolve by production control? 3000 assembly parts? I do not get it? :huh:

 

:booyah:  Excited for you that it is in production. :D

Each order status has a number code.  I think 3000 means it is a buildable combination, but it has not been put in sequence yet.
