Stripped 2wd ext cab will list for 17,900 minus freight, invoice about
16,200 minus freight. They will go way up from there, depending upon
Stripped = 4 cyl, manual trans, no options.
That would be 27k with all the options, How much is a Silverado with all the
options? over 36k And what if you DON'T WANT a Silverado? There are some
people in this world with enough self confidence that they don't need a full
size truck to make up for any of their short comings.
so a bare bones 1500, or a nicely equipped Colorado. hm.... I guess what
someone says "a couple bucks" some think in terms of thousands, and some
think in hundreds. $9,000 is more than a "couple bucks".
My '98 S10 4x2 with a V6, automatic, a/c, extended cab, CD player,
tinted rear window, power seat/locks and HD front suspension cost me a
grand total of $16,800 after a $2000 rebate. Pretty much optioned out
if you ask me. 27k is way overpriced for a chevy compact truck.
bare bones 1500 are selling for less than 20,000 and can be bought for
as little as 15,000 and maybe even lower. You can buy a LT 2WD
silverado for less than 27,000. and with rebates and incentives you
can pick up a 4WD LT for that price.
Makes me wonder why anyone would want to by one 'new'?
A used 96 can be bout for <$5K - sonoma,s10,1500, etc.
And engines are cheeper than what I commonly hear on these sites if you
go to a you-pull-it junk yard (the yard-man will usually pull an engine
for $100, and engines are typically <$150+50core). Of coarse you may
want to rebuild whatever you get that way (another $400 if you replace
any needed valves/bearings/etc - more if you have it done). For
example, check out http://garysupullit.com/partspricelist.htm .
