The Polar Vortex and other shitty weather in many parts of the country limited the days one would want to venture out to a car dealer...

Hey, looks like Alfa Romeo’s having a great year! All that money FCA’s been spending is paying off.

I have a sinking feeling q1 will be a bloodbath for GM. I hope I am wrong. On the bright side, last week of March they may be throwing thousands more on the hood in addition to what’s already on there, to anyone with a pulse and an SSN to fill out a credit app.

 

wow look at alpha romeos year to date. Lol

GM is finally discounting the new trucks (of course the crewcab shortbed is the one they're pushing).  Anecdotally these trucks are still a rare sight on the roads round these parts.

Yep- I'm also not seeing many '19s at all (did see 1 yesterday, prior to it was over a month). Is Chevy reporting '19 & '19 'classic' sales independently?
Dealer sites are primarily and by a long shot showing double cab/standard beds in inventory from my observation.

Maybe it depends on where you are but I have already seen about a half dozen new Silvis in just the last month.

 

The craptastic weather is absolutely a factor in craptastic sales overall though.

I'm not seeing many of the Silverado, but the Sierras are plentiful, especially the Denali.  I'm surprised how many Denalis I see... almost as many as the Silverado entirely.

Well to be fair, just like any new design, the highest-price trims are put on the lots first to try to bait the early adopters.  Sinister plot.

Sinister only if you do not believe in the profit motive.

Well I won't begrudge them a profit.  BUT they make plenty, regardless of trim level, even on the $39,930 Silverado WT regular cab 4X4 I want.  A mix right off the bat would better serve the customer, imo.  Honda dealers have plenty of $35k Passport Sports on the lots already, alongside $44k Elites.

Be interested in researching previous gens of GM trucks.  Have they always had staggered intros?  I don't think so.  Let's start with 1973, since there was a wider choice of configs starting with that redesign v. the '67-'72 light duties.  I think the staggered intro started with the '88 downsized fullsize trucks, where the old style was rebranded as "R/V" for the heavy 3/4 and one-tons for a while until the heavier new style trucks were ready.

Actually what I am referring to is not only a GM truck phenomenon.  Most new vehicle intros stack high trims onto the lots first.  Heck, some vehicles even have high-priced "launch editions".  You will be hard-pressed to find a Ranger Supercab right now, for example.  They are, by and large, Lariat and high-optioned XLT SuperCrews.

the company i work for got a bunch of the new style 19 silverados for their construction field people.  So they must have got them for a decent price arrangement.  I wanted to go out and look at a 4 popper today but couldn't make it out.  They are discounted nicely now.

Sooooooo....., falling well under the radar is Tesla's performance.

In December they sold 32,600 vehicles.
In January, that PLUNGED by 75%, to 8,325.
February saw yet more blood, dropping to 7,650.

Feb; slightly shorter month, some rough weather in the northern half of the nation, but not this bad.

Of course the take-away --and we saw this with the Georgia state credit discontinuance and the 90% (IIRC) EV drop there-- is that the vast majority of buyers AREN'T in EVs to do The Greater Good, they are in it for a 'deal'. At least, such could be argued.

Tesla is throwing some levers (layoffs, store closings, price drops) to try and stem the bleeding, but if volume is their key to profitability, they've just been set back almost a year. Last time the Model 3 sold less than the 5750 it did in Feb was April 2018.

Right now there is no rock-solid need to buy a Tesla, as opposed to a car with an ICE.  Tesla has some issues but the rest of the industry will soldier on without them.
