GMC Average Transaction Price Down 2.5 Percent In September 20224
The average transaction price (ATP) for a new GMC vehicle fell 2.5 percent year-over-year in September, while the industry new-vehicle ATP declined month-to-month for the first time in five months.
As reported by Kelley Blue Book and Cox Automotive, the ATP for a new GMC vehicle was recorded at $60,081 last month, representing a 2.5-percent year-over-year decline compared to an ATP of $61,597 recorded for September of the 2021 calendar year. The GMC ATP recorded last month was also an increase of 0.2 percent compared to an ATP of $59,963 recorded for August of 2022.
As for all four GM U.S. brands, which includes Buick, Cadillac, Chevy, and GMC, new-vehicle ATP was down 1.3 percent year-over-year to $52,511 last month, as compared to GM’s ATP of $53,220 recorded in September of 2021. Combined, all four GM U.S. brands recorded a month-to-month ATP increase of 0.8 percent compared to a new-vehicle ATP of $52,084 for August of 2022.
As for the broader automotive industry, ATP was down 0.3 percent month-to-month, falling to $48,094 in September of 2022 compared to an ATP of $48,240 for August of 2022, thus marking the first industry-wide month-to-month ATP figure decline in five months. Despite the month-to-month decline, industry-wide ATP was still well above sticker, while also rising 6.1 percent year-over-year compared to an ATP of $45,319 for September of 2021.
Full-size cars and luxury cars had the highest incentives last month at 4.4 percent of ATP, while high-performance cars, vans, EVs, and luxury full-size SUVs and crossovers had the lowest incentives at less than 1 percent of ATP.
The latest figures mark the 16th straight month that new-vehicle ATPs were higher than the average MSRP. One of the contributing factors in this is continued strength in luxury vehicle sales, which made up 18 percent of total new-vehicle sales last month, an increase compared to 17.6 percent of total new-vehicle sales in August of 2022. The average luxury buyer paid $65,775 for a new vehicle last month, a decline of $60 month-to-month compared to a new-luxury-vehicle ATP of $65,835 in August of 2022.

Depends on where you live. Around me the GMs and Ford’s are at MSRP or higher. The only deals are Rams. All 2022 are pretty picked over.
I have talked with sales managers at several GM dealerships who informed me that they are adding $10 -$15 on top of the MSRP for additional dealership profits. This (in my opinion) is not right nor fair to GM customers. I feel as if GM cooperate office should address this with the dealerships which are doing this as it’s setting a very bad reputation and inappropriate professional image for GM. So glad that I’m dealing with a dealership which sells vehicles for MSRP! Thank you Action GMC in Bainbridge, GA. — it’s good to do business with you!!
That’s $10-$15 K added to the MSRP!
It maybe because gm has been pushing the 4t on the dealers.
Turbo means trouble to me and they can stick their junk 8 sp. up their a**.
