Were any of them 6.0s?


No and there was no 7.3's on the list either.


Yeah, they know owners do not want to part with their 7.3's.

I am glad that my daughter took advantage of getting a 2021 3500HD Denali Crew Duramax on June 4 for $66k.

Wish I had ordered another one in March.

Dude I work with was offered $11,000 for his truck-outright purchase, not a trade.

It's a 2006 Chevy 2500 Duramax with 190,000 miles.

Can we start a few more threads on the price of trucks right now?

Nobody is forcing you to buy. Nobody is forcing you to sell. If you can take advantage of the current market, though, take advantage of it. It won't last.


Really? No one is being forced to buy? Amazing!

And as far as the thread in general why not a few more on the price of trucks? As opposed threads on subjects that meet your approval?

05-06 duramaxes go for good money still if they are in good shape and still have rocker panels.

Even before the current market craze.

Ones around 100k miles where in the low-mid 20's last year. This is crew cab 4wd models.

Exactly. Every vehicle I've bought over the past 20 years or so, a year or two later I get these calls from the dealer "We're short of cars and really want to buy yours as demand is high".
Baloney. If you wander in you soon find that there is no real "deal", they just want to sell you a new vehicle.

Most of you posters sound like me. Just more stealership BS. The only thing that if I was in the market, I sure would be hunting a vehicle that they are now pushing out that are minus the "stop/start feature. Dumb move to from the git go.

If he paid 40k for his truck back in '06 his depreciation would only be about $1900 per year. That's very close to what my depreciation cost has been since I started buying new and trading frequently. I will have a higher cost of money but he will have higher maintenance and repair costs.

It will also only stay in 8 cylinders, and will not have HD radio.

Might be the time
