Well, since the original truck I wanted to buy has been "in transit" since January and nowhere to be found, yesterday I pulled the trigger and agreed to a deal on a different 2020 Silverado 2500HD 4WD with the Duramax and Allison 10 speed transmission......kind of! The truck is at a different dealer than who I'm going through so they have to complete a dealer trade. I'll know tomorrow if they can get that part of the deal done. Then I have advised the dealer that before they finalize the trade with the other dealer, I want pictures of the stickers to make sure the payload is good, the RAWR is good, etc. I already know it has the 11,300 GVWR so I'm 90% sure the rest of the numbers will work but I'm leaving nothing to chance. If they can get that stuff done, I'll have a new truck in a few days. If not, I'm back at square one. I hate this whole process. I must have talked with a dozen dealers. Offers were all over the place on both a purchase price of a new truck and the trade in allowance I would get for my 2017 Ram. I had prices from $600 below invoice which is what I agreed to buy the truck for, to only $500 off the MSRP. The trade in allowance varied by over $6000! I'm sure I left money on the table, most people do, but I still got a good deal.




I do not believe a 2500 will have a 11,300 GVWR. More like 10,650. RGAWR will be 6,600.

The new 2020 models can be ordered with the 11,300 GVWR and the one I'm interested in has it. It's part of their beefed up towing capabilities in the new trucks.

I asked him to do one thing and he didn't do any of them.

Yes Chris, evidently some GM 2500 models do have a GVWR of 11,350, and RAWR 6,600. I read it right on the window sticker of exact truck that Rob was initially going to purchase. They have an upgraded suspension, and seemly ignore earlier class 2 limit of 10K

Back to Square one. Deal cancelled. The dealership that has the truck can't come to agreement on a dealer trade with the dealership I'm working with. Ughhh!

No but the Truck Sales Manager I've been working with has been on his computer checking with all dealerships within 250 miles of Buffalo so I'm sure he knows what they have. I asked him about several different trucks over the past couple of weeks. Sometimes he would say "that one is sold" even though it's listed for sale on that dealerships website. He has much better info than I can get. Funny though. He has inside dealer info but he has no clue where the truck is that's "in Transit" or maybe he does and there's some reason other than what he's telling me why he can't or won't sell it to me.

11,350 is the standard GVWR for a 2500 with the diesel. 10K is an option for those who need it. Just looked at mine again to confirm, 6600 RAWR, payload 3077 and this truck has everything but a sunroof.

Supply is tight, but there are some trucks out there. Are you willing to do a road trip to buy one?

For a fair deal, I would definitely travel a reasonable distance (200-300 miles). I tried to make a deal with one dealership in Conneaut Ohio which is about 100 miles from me. They weren't even interested in talking when I told them what others had offered up to that point. They said, "We can't get close to those numbers" and the numbers weren't even the best I've received since!

No worries. I appreciate you checking things for me.
