I was looking for an LTZ or fully loaded Z71. LTZ was pretty easy to find, but the loaded Z71 was a task. Only found 1 within 300 miles. I called a few dealers to price shop the LTZ vs the Z71. They all came off about $3500 plus rebates. Didn't matter if it was a 2010 or 2011. 2010 came with an extra $1000 rebate, but I decided to sacrifice that in order to get a model year newer. I will easily see it back in resale value. We ended up getting a 2011 Chevy Suburban Z71 with the Lux, HD Trailer, & Sun, Ent, and Dest packs. MSRP was $56,600 and we got it for $50,000 with discounts and rebates.

Hi I am new to this form and don't know if you have bought already. I just built and ordered the following:
2011 1500 LT Suburban 4X4
Sheer Silver Metallic Paint
HD Trailering Package
Sun, Entertainment and Destinations
Engine Block Heater
Second Row Captain's Chairs
I picked the above options to get as close to LTZ as possible without paying the price for an LTZ.
The sticker price is $55,610
Consumer Reports says invoice is $52,508
My dealer is selling it to me for $50,000
Less $3,000 is rebates and its $47,000 plus tax and license
It will be built 1-31-2011 and delivered first week in February, so the incentives may change before then, hopefully for the better.
I live in Southern California, so maybe the pricing is different in other states. I hope this helped if you didn't already purchase your new vehicle.

That's pretty much what I'm looking for - but for significantly less $ than I'm being quoted in TX. The $49.2 price I quote above is after the $2k rebate as well as a $750 USAA member discount.
Maybe a trip to CA is in my future

How do you like the Z71 package? Would like to test drive one but no one has one. Hope it improves the std handling.

I have zero complaints about the Z71 package, or about the Suburban as a whole. Just don't get me started about the nav/rear entertainment unit. Detest is putting it lightly. It is basically worthless if the vehicle is in motion.

I bought a 2011 4X4 Z-71 with the sun entertainment package, and luxury package. Im thinking I should have gone with my other option which was a 3/4 ton Diesel Crew Cab.
I was ok with the deal coming in at $50,400.00 after all I was coming out of my 2003 Z71 4X4 that I have 170K on.
Took delivery of the vehicle on Thursday of last week and went on a 150 mile trip with it all highway miles.
To say I was or am disappointed would be minimizing my feelings at this point.
Transmission on this vehicle is different than my 03, they used to use the 4 speed tranny now they have a 6 speed - it is very confused and from what I now read, it is not uncommon at all with this new transmission.
Advertised mileage, I was excited to get into the new vehicle and gain a mile or two a gallon off of what I have come to expect from my old faithful with 170K on her, my disappointed again as the new one has not been better and in fact been worse so far. I now do not look forward to driving it and am pissed off at the decision I made, if I get screwed from GM on this thing I can tell you that I will become 360 degrees off from what I have been for the last 30 years in telling people that I work with, and people that work for me etc.. they have to buy american. I hope - truly hope - they come through on this deal and make it right but I have a sneaking suspicion they will not - if thats the case GM is closed in my eyes. I have owned over 17 GM products personally thus far and influence the buy of several cars a year. 65 Chevelle, 69 Impala 70 Nova, 72 Blazer, 70 pick up truck c-10, 78 K20, 79 K20, 86 Diesel Suburan, 88 K30, 88 Bravada, 89 K30, 95 1500 Suburban, 2000 Tahoe, 2005 K20 Diesel, 2003 Suburban and now the 2011 Suburban.

Thanks for the review.
What was the sticker price?
I'm not sure I understood what you meant about getting screwed?? You already bought the truck? Could you explain please.
Thanks again for the review
