Default Price INCREASE on C7's! $2k on Base - $4k on Z51!

Heard from my dealer as well as another forum member that the base C7 is going up $2k and the Z51 is going up $3,200!

I knew it was going to happen. The Z51 is still a deal at that price!

Correction, Z51 has a $3200 increase overall or $4k over the base MSRP.

Will this increase be applied to all the people waiting for discounts and rebates?

BTW: Mines in the pipe and the increase won't be applied.

Is this a mid year price increase or for the 2015 MY?

LOL.

At least the ones that say rebates will be coming could be correct.

Just as they did with the Silverado, increase the price to throw incentives. I still don't think they will throw rebates on the C7 any time soon.

Those that don't buy first year will be loving this news. Lets see how many of those buy first year now.

IF this happens to be true, then those of us at event code 3000 just made it with no price increase.

I doubt it will go up that much... Sounds like your sales person is trying to get you to close on a 2014. ABC's baby!

Absolutely, Tom Hendricks called me and told me how it would affect me - $0.00. I was texting the OP about it about it when his dealer texted him about it.

Doesn't add up. Is the Z51 going up $4000 to $6800 or up to $4800 or up to $4000 from $2800?

This is BS. So GM starts employee discounts the day they increase prices $2000. What a turn off. This kind of crap pushed on the consumer really turns me off and want to walk away from purchasing a new c7. Just my opinion

Yes $6,800, but the base is up $2,000. So, the Z51 is $4,800 more than base.

How about 2 separate dealers near simultaneously contacting clients. The 2 dealers are about 500 miles away from each other.
