#1 of 44 GMC Sierra invoice price vs. Edmunds
May 31, 2007 (10:48 am)
Does anybody know why the invoice price the dealer showed me was roughly $500 higher than the dealer price listed on Edmunds and KBB? I added the $900 destination charge, but the dealer invoice was not even close. Can the dealer mark up the invoice price? Of course the salesman said it was because the web was wrong. Uh huh, right.

Edmunds specifically leaves out certain local and regional advertising charges that will appear on the actual vehicle invoice from the manufacturer. This is because these charges can vary widely, even as tight as county by county. Depending on where you are, $500 is probably about right for these ad fees.

Thanks for your reply. So this is a fee the dealership must pay to GM and therefore is non-negotiable?

According to my dealer, that fee goes to the "Regional Marketing Group" which pays for the advertisements, etc. They do not charge GM Family members with this fee, so you may be able to negotiate on it.

I flat out told the dealer I wouldn't pay it, he said he couldn't "waive" the fee but gave me 500 more on my trade.
Press them, they will work with you, if not go somewhere else.

Does anyone know when Chevy is supposed to begin production on their 08 3/4 tons. About two months ago I ordered an 07, but dealer called two weeks ago and said that I ordered too late for an 07, that I was going to get an 08 for the same price (we'll see). As salesmen are usually kept out of the loop, and tend to keep info that they do know close to the vest, I wanted to know if anyone knows any specifics.

I placed an order for a 2007 Silverado 1500 Crew LTZ on 17 June. The dealer notified me that the truck will be a 2008 model. I have a 23 July build date, with an approximate delivery date of 5 August. I am told that any incentives available for the 07 will be applied for the 08. I do not have any indication that the price will be the same, or increase by 1-3%. Based on todays article in the Wall Street Journal GM will continue with incentives as truck sales were down 21% in June. I'll keep you posted.

I talked to the dealer yesterday, and have an identical build date. The salesman told me that the price would be the same, but we'll have to see. I'd appreciate it if you could let me know if they change the price on your half-ton, and I'll keep you posted on price differences in my 3/4.

I'll keep you posted on the any price increase I receive. I will know as soon as I receive a VIN #...it should be late next week, or early the following week.
