Employee Pricing!

If you are looking to buy a new GM vehicle, next week should get pretty juicy!

That's too early. Tell them to wait until the HUD is ready.

Rebates don't change until the 19th. No memo, just some inside info.

Next few weeks are going to be crazy.

Camaro's will be a very small % of our overall sales. Silverado is by far the #1 selling vehicle in Iowa.

Speaking of Silverados, didn't they come out with the new model the same exact year Toyota released their new Tundra? Didn't it win "Truck of the Year" that year (beating the new Tundra)?

So, my impression of the award was that only new models in any given year were eligible to compete so how is it that one year later, Toyota wins the 2008 award?

Even given that they could have changed the rules to allow any model to compete in the current year, how is it that the Silverado was the best one year and not the next considering that no significant changes were made to either truck in the intervening year?

I smell a rat!

We have well over 150 08 1500 ext/crew cabs on the lot and are starting to get in 09's.

We are actually low in inventory right now. We normally have 2000 vehicles on the lot and are down to about 1600 right now.

Wow.

To be fair, the Tundra was included in the TOTY contest the year after the Silverado because it was released after Motor Trend's cutoff date. Toyota actually admitted that they pushed back the release date because of the Silverado. Go Chevy!

Wasn't the wannabe truck the only eligible entry that year, anyways?

I think you've confused it with the Hinder Fridgeline.

Nope. I'm talking about the Tundra...the waste of steel, and composite beaten in that category only by the Aztec....

And the G8 ST, IMHO. The wagon would have been better.

I guess you haven't seen the Ford Flex yet?

(Looks like a Scion XB mated with a 1988 Volvo station wagon and had a Flex!)

The Silverado was released as a 2007 model. The turdra, on the other hand, was released in 2007 as a 2008 model. You see, crapyota knew that they wouldn't win any Truck of the Year awards with the Silverado competing, so they made up some stupid excuse about having to tweak something and that the tundra would have to be a 2008 model instead.
Therefore, the tundra was allowed to compete as a 2008 model, and since there weren't any new truck introductions for 2008, that piece of crap won Motortrend Truck of the Year.

EDIT: And yeah, I saw this was just answered. But whatever, I love insulting that poor excuse of a truck.

yes. I will know on Mondy what the new incentives will be with the Employee Pricing. If you lose 0%, you might still be better off with the current offers.
