When General Motors overhauls its full-size trucks for the 2014 model year, the new models will undeniably bring smiles to the faces of truck lovers across the country. But as truck enthusiasts are grinning form ear to ear, GM dealers may not be as fortuitous, as they will need to decide whether to stockpile the last shipments of the GMT900 trucks (before the combined 29 weeks of downtime for GM’s plants kicks in) or to turn them down in waiting for the new K2XX unit. The GMT900s aren’t easy to sell as it is, given the fact they’re the oldest in the industry (among trucks that matter) — having been around since 2006.
If inventories of 2013 Chevy Silverado and 2013 GMC Sierra trucks run dry, dealerships risk losing sales — but they also don’t what to be stuck with a bunch of unsellable last-gen models when the new trucks come to market, either. If you’re a dealer reading this, what is your store planning on doing? Sound off in the comments below.
