GM Raises the Price of 2014 Silverado and GMC Sierra

Price increases despite being outsold by the competition

GM has announced that it has increased the starting price for the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks. Prices have increased by up to $1500 according to GM. However, Chevrolet will offer as much as $1500 in cash back incentives to offset the price increase until the end of October.

“The launches of the 2014 Silverado and GMC Sierra are hitting their stride and evolving as expected,” GM spokesman Jim Cain said. “With the sell down of the ‘13 models nearly complete, this price adjustment was planned and is a normal part of business. We have the best trucks and they’re the best value in the market.”

It's a bit strange for GM to be increasing the price of its trucks when they have been outsold by the competition recently. Ford has been offering larger rebates as has Dodge on trucks making those models more popular than GM's offerings.

2015 Corvette Stingray Eight-Speed Automatic Driven: Eight Ways to Shift Your Pants

Aug 21 2014 4:39pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The race to higher gear counts is in full swing, and automatic gearboxes are leading the way. Driven partly by marketing one-upmanship and partly by the need to meet ever-tougher fuel-economy mandates, eight-speed autoboxes are everywhere, Chrysler’s running a nine-cogger in select models, and 10-speeds—from Ford, GM, Volkswagen, and others—are just around the corner. The General’s own in-house-developed eight-speed units (for its trucks and rear-drive V-8 cars) are jus ...

Aug 21 2014 4:31pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Car Buying, Acura, Honda, Earnings/Financials Is there a point in the US auto industry where companies should start considering the welfare of their customers ahead of selling more cars? American Honda Executive Vice President of Sales John Mendel thinks that level exists, and we may be getting very close to it. According to Automotive News, Mendel believes that finding more customers in the market could require pursuing subprime buyers and offering longer-term loa ...

SUV Review: 2015 GMC Yukon

Aug 21 2014 3:27pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

WHITEHORSE, YUKON – When gold was discovered here in 1896, it brought thousands, lured by the prospect of vast wealth. Many braved, and lost, their lives trying to navigate the rushing waters of Miles Canyon, whose 50-foot basalt walls originally earned it the name “Grand Canyon.” The indigenous folks, who’d already been in the area for thousands of years, wisely chose to bypass it with a portage trail they’d forge ...
