Hey all,

I am in the market of looking for a new Chevy or GMC 2500HD (preferably a GMC). I was looking at a '06, 2500HD, 6.0 gas, 4x4, work truck, with a snow plow prep package.

I went to the local Chevy dealer and the sticker on it was around $27,500. He knocked it down to $24,500 out the door w/tags and tax. Then he had the manager come over and he knocked it down to $21,300. I didn't make a purchase because I have been looking at used and haven't had a chance to make it over to the GMC dealer yet.

Just curious for those of you who have bought a similar truck lately or have looked into it what kinda of prices have you been given?

Thanks!

Dave

Buy used. I just bought a GMC 2500 HD. 2001, Plow prep, 6.0, SLE (loaded), and 50,000 miles. Paid 16500.
Could have bought a new one but this matches my other truck and looks great. You will really hate yourself the day you put a ding/dent/scratch on your new truck. Also, take the $1000 you save on depreciation and buy a tool that will make you even more money. Remember the only thing a truck does is make your life easier. You can make the same money with an older smaller truck too.

$21,300 you say? You'd be a :hammerhead: if you walked on it and bought a used truck for $4800 less with 50K on the Odom. Then again, it all comes back to what you can afford.

I paid 24,800 for my '06 GMC BTW. If you can, jump on that deal.:waving:

Yea but like you said it's got 50,000 miles on it, well over Gm's 3yr 36,000warranty.

Not try to be an ASS please don't take it that way, jMO. You have a "New" truck that is out of warranty, and the shadetree mechanic can't work on it.

thast a good deal, i paid $27,000 for mine with a plow after tax and registration. same exact truck... 2005 GMC reg cab long bed 4x4 6.0L gas W/T...

if you're going to get a plow you should see if the dealer will have it installed. i got a $1000 "upfit" discount off the plow for having it put on when i bought the truck.

It sounds like $21,300 is a pretty good deal. I was just price shopping at the time and was surprised that they knocked it down so far. I wouldn't be suprised if i went back in that they knocked it down a little more.

TWUllc, that's exactly what i was trying to figure out. I agree with you that it doesn't make sense to buy a used one for $4k less with 50,000 miles on it and no warranty. I've been seeing used in the price range of $15,500 to 17,500 all with at least 50k miles on 'em.

I haven't looked into it yet, but do many of you guys buy trucks with the plow straight from the dealer? I'm probably wrong, but I want to say that I've only seen 'yellow' plows on the trucks at dealers around me. I was planning on going 'red' with my first plow purchase. I know that is a whole other discussion though, (red vs. yellow)..........

Thanks!

Dave

I would pay $21,XXX for that truck. Brand new with a full warranty. Not worth saving $4-5K buying used with 50K miles IMO.

Just ask a Dealer rep if they can get a red plow. I'm sure the more serious you talk about the purchase, and the more money you are planning to spend, the more they will go out of their way. I would actually pay more to have the dealer install it IMO. Just so there is no middle-man. Peace of mind so I can :sleeping:

I lucked up a couple weeks ago. Wasn't really even looking for any more trucks but I couldn't pass on it either. 2005 F350 XLT Super Crew Cab, Dually LB with 6.0 PowerStroke Diesel, 6 Speed Auto Torq-Shift Towing Trans, PS,PB,PW, PL, keyless entry, Tilt, Cruise, AC, Heated Telescoping tow mirrors, AmFmCD, Lumbar Support seats, dual folding armrest, gauge package, bed liner, class V hitch, only 11,000 miles with 2 years 25K miles left on the bumper to bumper warranty and 4 years 89K miles left on the extended engine warranty. Paid $27,000. It list for $44,000.00 cause the sticker was still in the glove box, and KBB had it valued at $33K. Also had totally clean CarFax and Oasis Reports on it.

I still think a used truck with miles is a better option than a new one. Yes mine didnt have a warranty but these trucks usually dont have any problems. I had mine checked out and everyone who looked at it said it was a purchase I couldn't pass up. I just couldn't see myself working and/or trashing a new truck. Plus you will probably put 25,000 miles on it in the first year.
Another option is used, work package diesel, probably close to $21,300.
If you do go new, get a red plow with it.

Well I went home yesterday and there's a change in plans. I 'think' I found a better deal. Today, I just bought a '98 Chevy, 3500 HD, 10' Dump, 56,000 miles, w/nice hydraulic setup (front for plow & rear for salt spreader).....
