I looked at a 2018 GMC 3/4 p/up today with all the bells and whistles
from a private party. He bought the truck and then he and the wife decided they wanted a MH to take across the East Coast. The truck just turned 6K miles. It has a $2,200 canopy. It has 4x4 and lots of other things. Not a scratch on the truck. I have owned lots of p/ups but never
a GMC. By the way, it has the big gas eng. Can someone tell me the pros and cons on GMC p/ups? He is asking $48,500 and he paid close to $70
It is a beautiful truck and it is reg in Oregon and he will deliver to my home in Calif. I called DMV in Calif and the reg fees would be about
10 percent of the value of the truck Ouch Let me know what you think
good deal or bad

Decent price for a gasser that nice. How heavy are you towing?
Will be the 6.0 6L90E. Proven drivetrain. Really reliable. Do you know what gears?

IMO it's as reliable a truck as any. We have a bunch of old 6.0 Chevy pickups at work that have been beat on for a long time and they are pretty bulletproof.
Congrats on the new truck......if you buy it.

That sounds like a good truck. They are very dependable, and pull strong, due to the now standard 4.10 gears. IMO, the original purchase price is a little overstated. It may have listed for 70K, but unlikely the owner paid even close to that. A new one could be purchased for around 50K, maybe less a few options. I'd make an offer, if you really like the truck, but check on line first, to see what a similar new one would cost, out the door cash price.

I don't keep track of the HD gasser market, but I am of the opinion that on a diesel, it really doesn't pay to buy a one or two year old truck, as they just hold resale value too well.

Unless gassers are completely the opposite of that, the original price of that truck is way overstated.

As suggested above, I would check to see what a new truck would really run you. My gut feeling is that this truck might be a fair price, but not necessarily a great price.

IIRC GM only puts the 4.10 with the gas 6.0

There really aren't any reliability or mechanical issues with that truck. The drive train is well proven and solid. As for the price, you could buy a new one for that amount of money or less. It may not have all the extras this one does but do you really want to pay more for the extras? Maybe you do. I'd price a similar new one first. Unless you have that much cash laying around I assume you will be financing it. You would likely get a better interest rate on a new truck. The payment on a new one may actually be less.

You can buy a new SLT gasser for right around 48k maybe little less on a '18 model. Denali would be a bit more. A person can't pay $70k for a gasser unless there including tax and got ripped off on the price and/or up selling.
If it's a Denali, 48k is an ok price. If it's not, it's too much.

As mentioned above that used price is too close to the price of a new one. That is the problem with buying 1-2 years old the price is just too close to the price of a new one to be a bargain or a worthwhile deal.
