    Chevy Could Be First to Deliver $100,000 Pickup

    Chevy Could Be First to Deliver $100,000 Pickup
    Demand for pickups of all sizes, prices, defies overall U.S. sales downturn, says truck marketing chief.
    The Detroit Bureau
    Paul A. Eisenstein
    Jun.18, 2019



    As always, demand is being driven by the “core” audience who want trucks for work and need lots of towing and cargo capacity, said Piszar. But there’s a growing market among non-traditional buyers who see a pickup as an alternative to a sedan or coupe and, in many cases, a luxury car. And those buyers “are demanding more” high-line features while also accepting fast-rising transaction prices. Chevy moved up-market with is latest trim level, the Silverado High Country. But it is exploring the potential to reach even higher, a move that could see it offer the first truck to top the $100,000 mark.

    Archrival Ford has already nudged close to that mark, a fully loaded version of its F-250 Limited now going for around $97,000.

    “People want to trade up,” Piszar said during a media event offering the first drive of the all-new 2020 Chevy Silverado HD line. “If customer want a more expensive truck” than what the bowtie brand already offers, “We’ll deliver it.”

    Asked directly whether a $100,000 version of the Silverado – likely an HD model – is in the works, Piszar demurred, saying he couldn’t comment on future product. But “Chevy wants to provide what customers are asking for” he stressed.

    SuperDuty could clear $100K with the new Timberline trim series. Presumably debuting this Summer...not sure yet. I just know the Timberline series was suppose to debut with the refreshed SuperDuty and I'm still waiting to see what that's about.

    If you can sell at that price point, more power to them, but make a class-leading product with content, design and interior worthy of the price.

    There should be a Cadillac variant to push the price even higher

    Ford already sells a +$100K pickup:

    https://money.cnn.com/2017/09/28/lux...ted/index.html

    If you do the Build and Price on the Ford site you end up around that price (that's checking the boxes for luxury packages, safety, and towing packages but not including any accessories).

    For 100k I'd rather have a 750i X-Drive

What pleases me the most about it was that ... I can say this is the first car that's come out, that was done since I left.

    But that's a car.. So it would seem they would not be actually marketing to U. Besides.... The CT6 V is better 🙂

    On a more meaningful note... Why wouldn't GM be the subject of this article over Chevy. I definitely preach brand autonomy, but Chevy/GMC is kinda one depends on the other kinda thing. $100K on a pickup... It better be called Denali before High Country imo

    I wonder how many people buy these things and then have their kids take student loans in college or take a second mortgage instead of paying off their house. The average Americans is truly stupid with their money priorities.

    A great quote from Will Rogers: "Too many people spend money they haven't earned to buy things they don't want to impress people they don't like."

    What's wrong with having kids take student loans? Better than them having everything handed to them and squandering their parents' money and end up dropping out, I saw that a lot when I went to ASU. And I still have student loans, but it forced me to be more serious through college having a personal stake in my education. And I plan to hopefully make that disappear this year.

    Top trim trucks sell well because they still still portray that rugged blue collar working image of the lower trim levels. A Cadillac truck would bomb just as hard as the Lincoln Blackwood did.
