17% Discounts on Silverado Pickup
For June, Chevrolet has discontinued their "Bonus Tag" incentives, which were notorious for confusing shoppers - and frustrating dealers.
This month, they're offering a variety of cash back deals, 0% financing, and lease deals all across the board, but their main promotion has to do with the Silverado 1500 pickup truck.
Chevrolet is offering 17% off MSRP on all LT trims of the Silverado 1500 (other trims get between $1,500 and $3,500 cash back).
A big reason for this new promotion is due to the Ram 1500 taking sales away in the pickup segment. The Silverado is usually the #2 best-selling vehicle in the nation, but the Ram 1500 has taken that spot for 3 consecutive months now. Chevrolet wants it back big time!
If you're in the market for a full-size pickup truck, this month seems to be a great opportunity to cross shop the Silverado 1500 LT and Ram 1500 to see how low you can get the dealers to go.
3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:
Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted NetworkSelect the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).
Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirectTrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
