Bigger Incentives For Bigger Gas Guzzlers

I can’t help but notice the influx of large SUV’s and big trucks in used car lots and peoples front yards.  I mean, gas is bad yeah, but there always be a need to pull something or haul a ton of dirt, so now is the time to buy.  GM and Chevrolet feels the same way and are showing it by offering some bigger incentives to match the girth of the vehicle.

Previously GM was offering up to $4,000 in cash incentives to new SUV and big truck buyers, but sales just keep falling.  Now GM has announced up to $6,000 in incentives for vehicles like the Chevrolet Silverado.  Seems like a good deal to me, but I already have a 9 mpg SUV with a 5.9l V8…taking up residence in my front yard.

    I wholeheartedly agree that this is a good time to buy a larger vehicle, if only for the initial cost savings. With gas going down too, it’s even more practical at least for a little while. I’ve never owned a truck before, but I’m actually considering them as a next vehicle since I’ll be needing one within a year or two I think. Maybe I’ll think ahead and buy a pair of mud flaps right now just to make sure I eventually buy something big enough to use them.

    Hi Vern.

    This weekend alone I saw no less than 6 cars with tillers and other LARGE equipment hanging out the back of their trunks. Each one was strapped within an inch of it’s life and I thought….wouldn’t a truck be easier?

    Personally I’ve got an old beater a 97 F150 that I have to drive back and forth to work and haul stuff. I can’t imagine living without it, I could never go back to owning just a car.
