Average dealer pricing '13 2SS Full Options

Hey folks. Just a quick question on what average price you guys are seeing for a '13 2SS with full options in the USA. Right now here in Kuwait, walk away price after conversion to US $ is approx $50,000. The price of US spec '11-'12 1SS/2SS sold by private dealers here averages $33-$37,000. That's a huge gap.

Of course, used means I have no warranty package and a few other things, and the Chevy dealer here is saying the US spec models suffer from heat management issues in the hotter periods of the year. I gotta say that this statement deserves a challenge. Anyway, that's why they make aftermarket radiators for and some fans with more CFM and of course I am sure the oil weight needs to be changed up in addition to an oil cooler.

Back to the OT, is $50K way too much for a '13 2SS? I'm in Kuwait, and I don't have the option of USA pricing (of course I could be in Australia and paying something close to $70K, so I won't bitch). Would I be better off going the used "import" route and taking a US spec 2SS for $13K-$17K less (buyer beware; no recourse)

It is entirely possible to bring a 2013 2SS/RS/1LE with every option up to a nearly $50,000 sticker before taxes.

It's very possible, keyword is "every option".

From my interpretation of the OP, that is what he wanted. I am actually surprised that there is not a bigger gap in price between what he was quoted and what is being paid in the US. Typically, the prices here are much cheaper than many other places in the world.

At least I don't feel so bad now. These things here are loaded.

Either way I go (US spec or Middle East spec), I'm putting down a considerable chunk of money just to keep the payments reasonable. I had the discussion with my wife this morning, and she did weigh in warranty package (minus brake pads), three years full coverage insurance, and a few other bennies the dealer put down in writing that we would get if we purchase our SS through them. Additionally, they sell more V6s here than the V8s because of the sticker price, and a lot of the people who buy the Camaro here just want it for the look and could probably care less about performance. I can't go that route. I just don't want to own something that everybody knows is supposed to come with power, and thank God my wife understands that and the difference between power and looking like you have power.

Brandon, maybe you know the differences between a US spec and a Middle East/export spec 2SS? Your information provided can make a serious difference for me.

I'd love to be able to say "Thank you! My favorite feature(s) is/are_______."
