Chevy 2500 Crew Cab Long box Gas
 
I am looking for a crew cab long box 4x4, but gas. AmICrazy? I could use some advice. I've always been a guy that drove used vehicles but am now in a position to pay cash for a new truck. However, I've done some searching and there is an extremely low amount of trucks in the gas model as crew and long bed. Basically the WT models are all white fleet trucks and scooped up quick.

Thoughts?

unless you are constantly hauling a heavy load imo there is no advantage to a diesel.

they are also expensive to maintain.

What are your concerns? I have a gas 2500 HD WT that is a standard cab long bed and personally I couldnít imagine having a truck with a short bed.

My only concern with a long bed and a crew cab is it is it pain to park anywhere since it takes double spots...

Thatís why I wanted to standard cab because this is not my dedicated work vehicle I just use it to tow and haul stuff

Diesels used to be great however with all the emissions stuff plus a huge price tag there is no advantage unless you were doing a ton of towing

Order one.

That would be a kick ass truck. According to chevys epwebsite the price would be $42,595 with a WT trim package.

I bought mine a year ago and I could have gotten a WT crew cab long bed gas model for far less than that.

I paid 29,200 plus tax/fees for my standard cab

2500 hd 2wd

The 4wd wasnít that much more...I think it would have been 30,300 or something like that

Mainly because the additional option of the plow prep package on it

$46-47k is MSRP with a few additions, larger tires, towing mirrors, spray on bed liner, towing and plow packages, back up camera, etc.. Any advice on getting a better price on a new build?

Go to Chicago.

I’ve never had much luck with dealers willing to go much below sticker around here.

I did a search with a local dealer last week, only 54 2019s in the nation; one in a color I preferred. That was sold that day and 9 left a couple days later.

I donít know, I think my sticker was 38 something on my truck so that is quite a bit off

Not sure if it makes a difference or not but there are plenty of dealerships around here that specialize in commercial fleets so they always have a ton of work trucks on their lots.

Of course these are not the fancy hi country models or whatever and most of them are either white or red usually, but they are a lot cheaper than most of the other fantasy trucks of the same model

Have you look at commercial truck trader.com? because thatís where I shopped and found my truck and When i called the dealer to verify the price and he said yeah thatís it....not much haggling

I just did a nationwide search on comercialtrucktrader.com and found one, LT model with regular mirrors. Not sure about bed size.

My specifications really limit existing truck availability. Hmm.

I know Chevy is changing out for the new models and might not be producing the wt right now for the 2019 line up yet. So that might limit your availability

I read somewhere that all of next year they will not produce a regular cab long bed model until 2020...Iím sure they are going to focus on whatever truck produces the most amount of profit first

It's tough to find a long bed regular cab 2500 with all the bells and whistles.

The very best time to buy is in the new year when every body is broke after the holidays

Iíve always heard at the ends of months, quarters and years when the dealers are trying to meet quotas.

META 11-19-2018 07:27 AM

My search went something like this.

-I need a new truck but can wait.
-It's been a good year, I need to reduce tax liability.
-I should buy a truck.
-Crap, I can't find what I want.
-I should build, but now I won't have it this year, although I could get a VIN# amd pay for it by 2018...just 0 miles logged in 18.
-Now the best strategy I have is time the purchase and deal with taxes a different way.

All depends on what you would consider.... bells and whistleĎs. Growing up driving work trucks that had no air-conditioning, manual windows and locks. Manual trans and manual mirrors forcing me to pull over and get out to adjust the passenger mirror, bells and whistles for me means automatic trans and full power accessories

When I was looking at fords A lot of their work truck still have manual windows and locks which is a total dealbreaker for me

My basic truck has full power including heated mirrors and a factory backup camera however it has Manual seats which I prefer because I donít want power seats.

Now if you looking for heated and cooled seats and/or steering wheel you will never find find that in a WT model or probably not in a standard cab long bed model either.

Of coarse the manufactures follow consumer desires and input
