Default Why can't I get a 2015 price?

I want to order a 2015 coupe. My local dealers cannot give me a price despite the fact that pricing is available here on the Web. Am I missing something?
Thanks

I have the same issue with the dealer am ordering from. I went to the dealer and pretraded the 2014 with a couple of agreements. At the time I did it, I was told that as soon as pricing was available, we would get the buyers order complete with numbers. All it says now is what I will get for a discount or supplier pricing and what I am getting for a trade. Obviously it has the year, model, color, and options. When this pricing was released, I went in to the dealer and asked to finish it up. He stated that he was not doing any numbers until the pricing hits "workbench" and he doesn't trust the numbers that were sent out. He also stated he has sent an email to GM inquiring about the pricing and also included in the email that the release was supposed to be for dealers only and shouldn't have been shared with the public by some dealers.

No, he didn't say when workbench would be updated. While there he also read a disclaimer about how pricing can change without prior notice. Hey, whatever. If he plays the game too long, I pull the order. Funny thing is nowhere on the buyers order does it state I lose any money if I cancel. I am not bound.

this pricing you speak of is not official; GM said is was preliminary and likely to change. There were adamant to the dealers to not make this initial pricing available to the public.

It's getting a little ridiculous that GM hasn't released official pricing since it's just a little over two weeks before 2015's start coming off the line.

To bring you up to speed, the prices you have (we all have) are apparently not "official" final prices. At least some dealers are refusing to commit on that pricing.

It seems that the pricing won't be official until posted to GM workbench.

Regarding the prices posted here, it was interesting that the dealer who leaked them deleted dealer invoice prices.

Why would it matter to him if the numbers were shared with the public? Some of these salesmen are ridiculous.

Yes, some are ridiculous. But I just spoke with a rep from chevy marketing through chat and he gave the same exact numbers that were listed out last Thursday, on this forum. He asked me what I ordered and quoted full retail pricing. At the end he stated to print off the chat session and take it to the dealer and show them what the pricing is for your model and options. He also stated that the pricing is in the GlobalConnect Dealer Resource system and that the dealers can use those prices. He also mentioned that if they are still having issues with pricing, to call the Dealer Business Center while I am at the dealer. He also asked if I would contact him back at the chat and ask to be put into a chat with him directly to let him know how it works out.

The only reason would be if the prices were not official, and then a week or so later, the official prices are finalized and higher than the leaked numbers?

Imagine being a dealer trying to explain to some of our members here ordering new cars that the actual numbers are higher than the numbers they got from this forum. Some would be gracious, others not so much.

My local dealer now has pricing for 2015 but he quoted me $53,995 for a base coupe which is $995 higher than the price listed here.

z51vette,
Thanks for this clarification. You are most likely correct.

I imagine GM wants to be able to massage prices up to the last possible moment.

I take their "un-official" labeled price release last week as a CYA move.

Link to GM authority site shows $53,000 for base "includes" destination charge.

Very interesting that dealers are charging an additional $995 for destination charge....IF, in fact, what the website says is accurate.

Last sentence of first paragraph states all models will have a $995 destination fee!
