I've been in the market for a new GM 2500 for the last few weeks and I'm having a hard time even finding a gas one to test drive. The dealers around here are selling them as fast as they come in. I talked to a salesman one day and before I could even get out there the next day the one I was going to look at was sold. One of the dealers told me that there are plenty of them someplace in OH but due to their size they can only ship them 1 or 2 at a time on the haulers which is making deliver very slow. How true that is I don't know but it sounds plausible.


If this is the case, perhaps have the salesman your talking to do a dealer search to see where the trucks are at and then call that dealer directly. If several OH dealers have trucks, see where and if all are within a decent proximity to each other, maybe worth a road trip after talking to them. Or you could go another route and use Autotrader, type in what you are looking for within "X" miles (maybe a good idea to go beyond that "X" just to see what's out there) which is essentially what your local dealer is doing.

The problem is they show as being on the lot, but sell before you get there. I had the same problem, saw the one listed on the dealers lot, called and they said sure come on down, when i got there it was gone. They probably knew that and had me come in anyway then tried to see me other **** i didnt want. So , be weary of the salesman. Took me a while to find mine, but i did get it early and for a good price. Now , its probably way harder to do that. I looked around here in nj and just saw work trucks or the higest end models.

This lack of new trucks, has made the GM used market go thru the roof. 9 months ago, you could get a 20-50K mile 2014-18 1500 truck for $18-25K, add $10K to that now. Rigs with 100K+ miles are going in the high $20K relm......

The used uhal reg cabs can still be found for around $20K......Seen a few new ones for mid 30K, et cab rwd for $30K......These are work truck level mind you.

We saw at a nearby dealer that they had our same 2017 King Ranch dually for sale used. It had 50k on it. They were asking $62,000 for it. That isn't much less than what we paid new for ours in 2017. Sure made us feel nice with ours with only 10k on it LOL!

Daughter bought a car from a large Chevy dealer last month, they told her that every truck that gets delivered to them is essentially already sold.

Definitely not a smart time to buy. Unless you're desperate hang on to what you have until things get caught back up.

Same way here. They have had guys waiting as the trucks get unloaded for those trucks that have not been ordered for a buyer. I would guess once the year end business purchases have been make that resolve itself somewhat.

I am pretty friendly with the owner of our local Ford Dealer, been buying form him for years.

The Super Duty trucks are very sloe to come in, when they do, they are special order trucks.

He told me that almost every stock truck inbound is sold before it hits the pavement.. AND AT NEXT TO NO DISCOUNT ... He is pretty much naming his price and getting it... Crazy Times

Found two 2020 F250 Ford diesels close to Tucson but they have 3.31 rear ends. Is that normal for a Ford diesel? I have been a gas man for a long time and don't know what rear ratios are good for diesel.
