GMC Yukon XL, SUV
#9 of 133 2003 Yukon XL SLE
Oct 27, 2003 (11:59 am)
Saturday bought the last cloth-seated (I hate leather!) 8-passenger (bucket front, bench middle) 2003 XL left at Ewing GMC in Plano, TX. The truck has running boards and the cargo package (net, cover, and roof rack rails) added; but otherwise standard. MSRP was $40,179 (including destination charge). We got $9,500 off that (the $4,000 rebate and $5,500 bite-the-bullet from the dealer) for $30,679 + TTL ($1917 sales tax and $250 title/dealer prep/"inventory tax").
A nice surprise was the "aggressive" CarMax dealership next door giving us $12,000 for our 1999 F-150 SuperCab with 42,500 miles. Ewing was thinking closer to $10,000.
It is a beautiful truck though: Toreador Red (that metal flake paint looking like a sapphire gem in the sun light) with custom Gold second tone paint along the bottom (similar to a Lariat job, only better), egg crate grill, bed liner, hard cover, alloy wheels, OWL tires (though rapidly nearing replacement time -- another $500 expense we saved!), tinted glass, Sony AM/FM/CD, and the coolest running boards I've ever seen (swooping back from the front wheel well all the way onto the bed portion to the front of the rear wheel well). In the summer of 2000, it was one of 25 1999 Custom trucks left over at what was then Lewisville Ford (now Sam Pack's Ford Country. We got a deal on it (paid $21,500 for it) and only added the hard cover, wheel locks, and spare tire lock. Up to the point of selling it, we frequently got compliments on that truck.

Picked up a metallic green, 1500 2wd 2003 Suburban from Power Chevrolet in Irvine, CA last week. Very highly equipped model, with side impact air bags, stabilitrac, xm radio, leather interior and the overhead entertainment center with DVD player. Sticker was $44,886 + 815 delivery. With GM rebates ($5500) and dealer discount ($6315) went out the door at $33,886 + tax and license. Internet Salespeople there are very straightforward. No dicking around or games. I researched here on Edmunds, and his price quote was nearly $12K off. Very satisfying experience. The whole transaction took about 25 minutes.

When will the greatest SUV on the mother planet be upgraded to reflect the pickups redesign? Also, how come the Allison/8.1 can be ordered with the pickup, but the 4A/8.1 is only on the burb? <mother planet, brother water, sister air> indeed. Someone's been eating WAY too much non-meat products!

The reason you can't get the Allison is the same reason you cant get the Dmax engine in a burb, It won't fit. I know this sounds strange, but if you'll notice the Allison tranny and Dmax are only available in the 2500 HD and 3500 trucks, not on the 2500 or the 1500. The latter 2 are the platform that GM uses to make the burb.
I am not sure when the redesign is coming for the appearance, but I did hear a rumor that the Dmax would be available in 06 on the Burb. I don't know if its true, if anyone could verify that would be great. I know I would be interested, although the MSRP of over 50K would scare me a whole lot.
#16 of 133 Best deals lately???
Apr 15, 2004 (3:15 pm)
What are the best deals anyone has gotten lately? We're not really in the market and our 2002 Avalanche is still almost flawless at 32k, but we've always wanted a white Yukon XL. Would have to order because we want a base 2wd SLE with only a few options, but might do this if we could get about $10k off.
What has anyone else gotten lately on a new '04??

I just signed for a 2004 Yukon XL. List for $48,990, got it for $38000 + doc (SLT, DVD/Sunroof, tow package, 17" alum wheels, + safe & Secure).
I believe that this was $863 under invoice or $506 over GMS price. The whole deal only took 15 minutes. I was prepared, I knew that everybody was offering supplier discount plus the 4$k rebates.
I searched dealer inventory over the net & went to the dealer with the one that I wanted. Chicagoland had 25 black XLs and several hundred XLs within a 100 miles. I should have tried the GMS discount price but I didn't know what it was until I saw it at the dealer.
As many Yukon XLs as there are on the lots, I'm guessing that the cash back will go to $5k in June. Any thoughts?
#18 of 133 New Yukon XL purchase
Jul 17, 2004 (3:18 am)
I just bought my new Yukon XL with a MSRP of $49,365.30 for $36,805.20 with no DOC fee's full tank of gass and a dealer button down shirt thrown in. I even got a fair deal on my trade. I was able to get $1500 more than I really had hoped for. I know GM needs to move the over 80 days supply of Yukon XL's on hand but that was great.
