Ordering, Allocation, and Pricing News....Your one stop thread.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's what I know:

Ordering starts October 13th.

Allocation will be known on October 13th as well. Dealers will be getting ordering guides to assist in the process...

Prices will be made available after January 1, 2009. (I won't get into the guessing games.....)


This is NOT speculation.

This IS however, (per GM's law) *subject to change

Same here, it is sort of annoying. I mentioned the October 13 date and they had no idea what I was talking about which worries me.

SimC33 10-04-2008 06:32 PM

Do we have to put any money down on the 13th when we order seeings how we don't know any prices?

GoldFire 10-04-2008 06:37 PM

SimC33, that is what I was wondering. I assume so, but I am not sure how they would come up with a down payment amount.

Thats exactly what I was thinking....camaro scotty, you think you could possibly clarify for us if we HAVE to put some sort of down payment on the car on the 13th when we order?

Jak 10-04-2008 10:51 PM

January??? What happened to December? That was the date I'd heard. And how can you take orders on a car an not know what it costs? Or am I just freaking tired an missed something here?

the is like preordering, so GM knows that what people want so they can get production ramped up without having restrictions at launch.


when Ford launched thier new mustang with the mylites or what ever (color changing gauges) they thought like 20% of people would want them, but when orders came in 60-70% (i forgot exact number) wanted them and there ended up being a 4 month wait for people who wanted that option. it was a blackeye for the car launch and gm wants to avoid it.

As the 3rd largest Corvette dealer in the U.S., EVS Chevrolet in Wisconsin deals with these questions every year. We have many customers who want to "pre-order" Corvettes in March or April for the next model year. This year for example we had dozens of orders placed before we knew pricing. It is just unfortunate how GM structures this. When you pre-order a car such as the Camaro in a couple of weeks, most dealers ask for a deposit to place the order. It is at the dealers descretion as to how much this would be. Once an order is accepted, which in the case of Camaro won't be until December or January, the dealer is obligated to that car. That is why we ask for deposits. With Camaro, the initial allocation is something you need to be cautious about. Early allocation is based on 70% Chevrolet sales and 30% Corvette sales. All Chevy dealers will get a few Camaros at first, but the larger allocations will go to larger Chevrolet dealers who have an emphasis on Corvette sales. Unfortunately, the small dealers will have a hard time getting cars in the first few allocation cycles. Basically, make sure the dealers you are working with sells a large volume of Chevrolet product along with Corvette sales. Hope this helps.

There is no solid date for the release of pricing. Like most other topics on this and other sites, there is a great deal of speculation that gets carried away, then people start acting like it is official info from GM.

The closest anyone knows at this time is pricing will be available December or January. My guess would actually be earlier in December. Preorders start October 13th followed by a period of time that allows GM to learn quantities of parts and paint needed before they start production. Preorders go to the factory late December or in January. I would expect pricing before these preorders go to production. For the orders not cancelled, assembly begins in February with shipments to dealers in late February.

I would expect pricing would be available some time after preorders but prior to orders being sent to the assembly line, allowing for any cancelled orders to be culled out.

Yes you will need to put a downpayment on the car to get one reserved! How much??? That depends on your dealer.

To everyone making the downpayment make sure you get it in WRITING that the deposit is refundable!!!!!

stovt001 10-05-2008 04:31 PM

Just a thought - although it seems weird to order a car without knowing the pricing, GM may use pre-order trends to see what is popular and what is not and then use that information to adjust pricing. We already have rough guestimations based on competing products and prices for features on other GM cars. If a feature seems to be unpopular during pre-ordering and we perceive the likely cost to be high, they might lower the real price of that feature.

My dealer said he just found out that pricing will be released on 10/13 between 7am and 8am central time. He's not camaro scotty, but we'll see if he's right soon enough.

That's a logical assumption since that's when they will be able to order, but that's making an assumption of a large business doing things logically. :drinking:
