Camaro: Negative profit per vehicle.Is this the same company that said they are going to quit making the Camaro?
Screw GM every single one of their vehicles are over priced.
You must have hit your head last week the articles were Silverado is 3rd in the truck segment and sales are struggling.Camaro: Negative profit per vehicle.
Silverado: 5 digit profit per vehicle. Also one that people are buying faster than you can screw them together.
If you're a business person and planning to actually stay in business, which option are you going with?
Have to remember to combine the Silverado and the Sierra sales. The F-series truck sales figures include the HD. There's some game playing with the sales figures. GM is selling plenty of trucks.You must have hit your head last week the articles were Silverado is 3rd in the truck segment and sales are struggling.
Even Dodge is ahead according to articles last week.........
Here are the real 1st quarter 2019 stats FROM GM.Availability of all-new regular-cab and double-cab pickups was very limited during the quarter due to launch timing, but full production of all cab styles started in March and they currently are arriving in dealer showrooms.
First-quarter 2019 average transaction prices for GM's all-new, light-duty pickups were $8,040 higher compared to their outgoing models in the first quarter of 2018, with the GMC Sierra leading the segment, according to J.D. Power PIN estimates.
Combined sales of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 crew cabs — the first of the company’s all-new full-size pickups to launch — were up 20 percent year over year.
Crew-cab production mix is currently running above 70 percent to meet strong customer demand, up 10 percentage points on average from the previous-generation trucks.
So to summarize that, Sales are UP, ATP's are UP, Sales of bigger versions are UP, and 95+% of them being sold are the higher profit trim levels (driving those ATP's).More than 95 percent of the all-new GMC Sierra 1500 crew cab sales are high-end trims including SLT, AT4 and Denali.
I don't see the same kind of fawning over the Camaro.We are bullish on pickups and expect to gain sales momentum throughout the year,” said McNeil. “We are installing capacity in Flint to build more HD pickups in total, more crew cab models, more dualies and diesel models, too, all in response to dealer and customer demand.
omg The new shit keeps getting worse and worse. For 100K I think I'd just put a new interior and 800hp powertrain in my Escalade, pay of half my house and be done with it! Well plus a bit of body work but still.An ad for a review of the HD right next to the article:
Jesus christ that is such an awful looking truck.
On topic, no one wants a fucking $100k truck. No one. Literally nobody I know says "you know what I'd love to spend one hundred thousand dollars on? A depreciating asset."
