    Chevy peeps/dealers/sales-- Is this a good price?

    Is this a good price on a 2019 ZR2 Colorado?

    https://www.mikemaroonechevroletnort...6104438cf4.htm

    I have the printed spec sheet in front of me. Dealers says they don't typically take more than a few hundred off of the price shown which is $42,232 including the dealer fees so that means I could probably get it right around $42k.

    I really love new cars.
    I really hate BUYING new cars.


    Any insight on price specifically would be useful. TIA

    $47k is a lot for a V6 ZR2. You can get one without all of the accessory shit for about $5k less, or you can get a diesel without all of the accessory shit for about the same money. That's about the same as a Bison too, which I would rather have over this accessory package.

    Yup, dealers only make a few hundred off every car they sell. That’s why they have such huge air conditioned building with 50 salesman. Gtfo

    Text under the video says: For many years I bragged how I felt that the Chevrolet Colorado was a better truck than the Toyota Tacoma. As a die hard Toyota fan you can imagine how hard this was for me. Shortly into our ownership we began to experience issue after issue. Fast forward 3yrs later, while on an overlanding adventure far from anyone or anything, we had issues and the Colorado's unreliability scared us. We simply cannot risk our safety in the wilderness with unreliable products and I cannot continue to endorse a product I don't believe in. The icing on the cake was General Motors and Chevrolet's lack of assistance in getting a resolution.

    Yeah, that's high.
    There are a few here locally for around $42k.


    REALLY like the size of the Colorado/Canyon,but I'm hearing nothing but complaints about them. Few coworkers have had them, and ditched them in less than 2yrs.


    Wtf? Gm.
    Entire last gen of Silverado was a total shitshow, the Colorados aren't faring well.
    The new gen silverado better be damn trouble free, especially given how shitty they look.

    I loved my Colorado.

    I would buy another one too with the right deal. What were their complaints?

    Transmission mostly. But, that was the 8spd.

    One complained of an ac compressor issue that he couldn't get fixed.


    I really dig the size of them. I would also like to see a stronger, less peaky gas option.

    Maybe you didn't understand my question. MSRP is $47k+ their advertised price is $42k+ and they indicated they don't typically take more than a couple hundred more than the $5k already shown. So the question was, is $5k+ off of MSRP a good price on this specific ZR2 Colorado.

    "Good price" is subjective based on vehicles. My BIL is a sales manager at a Jeep dealer in TX and they are currently selling the Gladiator at MSRP within a week so they are taking NOTHING off of the MSRP.

    I didn't like the Gladiator until I saw 2 of them on the street last week. It looks much better on the road than it does in a pic.

    I fully expect that, and much more.

    Imo, EVERY new vehicle should go 7yrs,100,000mi before ANYTHING goes out.
    250,000 before trans or engine need attention.


    Assuming regular Mx, of course.

    Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

    Buying a GM truck these days you have a higher percentage chance of getting a dud.

    You’d be catching lightning in a bottle to go 7yr on a newer truck (Ford, Ram, GM) without an issue.. The amount of stuff they’re throwing into them in order to one up mpg numbers alone will give issues.

    That's why I bought a tundra for the first time, I've always gone GM previously.

    Same here. Have owned 94, 98, 00, 04 and 15 silverados. 2018 Limited, hasn’t been to the shop except for oil changes so far, Silverado high country had been 4-5 times at this point in ownership.

    My 18 Tundra has 52k on it now and only the radio touch screen and the radar cruise sensor for repairs.

    Yeah I have no complaints either, does what I bought it to do and doesn’t have issues. I had so much tongue weight on it 4 weeks ago the front tires were light and she did well.

    The Tundra needs a 10% diet, and a updated engine that makes power close to them Gm 6.2, and close mpg.
    That, plus the Zf 8spd (since no other mfg can seem to build a auto worth a fuck these days).

    Do that, and I'll give them a look.

    Hemi still has valvetrain issues
    Ford managed to fuck up the 5.0,and cause them to burn oil, due to some new cyl coating.
    New GMs are unproven, but likely junks of shit until I see otherwise.

    Keeping my 06' even longer, it seems.

    Newer ecoboost might be most reliable.....

    I am debating just buying 1 year trucks....driving for 2 years and then selling.....losing very little and then doing it again.....

    I've been happy giving up a couple mpg for long term reliability
