...Notwithstanding the slings and arrows and outrageous fortune.
But if you could really get an actual deal like this on the outgoing GMT900 - knowing that K2x will not be discounted *and* likely have higher base prices at trim levels across the board, would it be more savvy to get a loaded GMT900 at the same price as a stripped down K2x?
If you could really get an MSRP of $34,700 for $26,200, wouldn't that buy a lot of fuel savings? You'd never save $8500 in fuel. Even if the V6 was 17/25mpg vs a "2007 technology" 293cid V8 and 4spd auto with a dismal 13/18mpg rating. And consider that for a $26K MSRP of K2x that might get you little more than the 325 V8. Then again the K2x WT will have many features that were previously only standard on the LT/SLE like power locks and the six guage instrument panel. There are other new baseline standards to consider like 8" wide wheels - and the 300hp V6 with 3.23s and 6pd would lay waste to this 4x4 4spd 293 on the drag strip, but what if you don't care that much about acceleration? Besides, a RC with 300hp is no slug - even with a 4spd.
But think of it: 4wd, higher trim level - Onstar and SiriusXM. It's tempting. 4wd vs. 2wd alone is a very, very big deal
What would you rather do: Pay fire sale prices for a loaded "2007 technology" model or MSRP for a base model with "2014 technology"?
