Looking into a 2017 Traverse 1LT with style pack

Hi everyone, I am looking to buy a new 2017 traverse, black with remote start, and a style package, MSRP at 38900 I got a OTD price of 34670, plus or minus a few dollars, anyone got any idea if i can negotiate the price a little more? I was thinking more of a 33000 range, it doesn't have much of tech on it, no nav or power lifting, but I do like the vehicle and hopefully get it soon, I am also looking for a way to get some private cash offer from Chevy. If anyone can help me out, that would be fantastic.! Thank you much!

Re: Looking into a 2017 Traverse 1LT with style pack

AWD? Towing package? I'm guessing so, but with an option list I built to get it close to the MSRP you say, dealer "invoice" is probably $36925 or so (about $2000 off). Ask the dealer to show you their "invoice" price--they should willingly show it to you. Take some more off with the $750 cash allowance Chevrolet has going right now and you're out the door at $36175. You say your OTD price is another $1505 off what I believe to be the invoice. You may have maxxed out what the dealer is willing to do, but it never hurts to ask, especially if they have had a bad sales month.

Remember that the invoice price the dealer shows you still protects their profit, so you have negotiating room below that. Again, you're getting another $1500 below invoice. Only you can decide if that deal is acceptable.

Good luck with your purchase!

Re: Looking into a 2017 Traverse 1LT with style pack

A $29595 1LT Traverse (zero optioned base price) would need to have numerous additional options, not just the $1250 "STYLE AND TECHNOLOGY PACKAGE" to come close to the sticker price you specified. Equipped to come to $38900 MSRP or so (as stated in your first post), with current GM promotions and discounts (shown in summary portion of the "BUILD AND PRICE YOUR 2017 TRAVERSE" section of the Chevrolet website) that vehicle would price out at $35800, so not as good as the $34670 OTD price stated in your first post.

Hope that helps.

If this Traverse is on the dealers lot, you should be able to post a link to it, then people in the know can comment better.

Re: Looking into a 2017 Traverse 1LT with style pack

This is the exact car I test drove, the invoice price i received was at 35882.95, I was able to get a 33455 OTD offer and they told me basically thats the best they can do. I offered then 32500 but they won't bite, any tips would be great

here is the VIN for the vehicle: 1GNKVGKD9HJ215165

Here's the virtual window sticker.

Their "invoice" price is about $300 less than I guessed. Then, they gave you another $1200 off the previous $34670 OTD price you said in your first post. You were looking for the $33000 range in your first post--$33455 OTD is pretty close. My advice? Go to a competing dealer and show them what West Herr is willing to do for you. Maybe you'll get somewhere. Otherwise, buy it for $33455 at West Herr Chevrolet before they sell it to someone else at that price.

Best of luck with your decision.

Re: Looking into a 2017 Traverse 1LT with style pack

So this is a good price even with the new exterior redesign coming out in a month?. I was concerning about if the value of this 2017 will drop when it becomes a old model. do you think I should stand firm with a firm lower offer or should I just go ahead and buy it? regardless the redesign.?

Re: Looking into a 2017 Traverse 1LT with style pack

You've obviously done a fair amount of work toward this purchase, but only you can make the final decision as it is your money you're spending. You're also obviously trying to avoid the dreaded buyer's remorse and I totally get it. But if I was getting 14% off the sticker price for the car I wanted to drive for the next 100K miles, I wouldn't hesitate to buy it.

The 2018 will be unveiled in less than two weeks on January 9, but very little design has been revealed for the Chevrolet version. The vehicle hasn't even been on sale to the public yet, so there are no numbers with regard to demand. Count on the new platform and base powertrain being identical to Traverse's siblings. That prohibits the Traverse from becoming an exclusive vehicle, so I don't see depreciation increasing due to an updated Traverse being released. The public may hate the new Traverse or the new platform may have widespread issues akin to the timing chain issues we've seen. Then dealers may have trouble selling them which may slow down the depreciation of your 2017, but not by much.

This is ALL supposition, too many unknowns that even GM and the rest of the auto industry would have trouble predicting. If the new Traverse is a stretched out 2018 Equinox, it should be a great looking vehicle. If they try to make the front end look like a new Chevy truck, it will probably flop. Let's see what January 9th brings.

Any new car is going to drop the second you drive it off the lot, that is why it makes more sense to by a used 1-2 year old vehicle. That way someone else took the initial depreciation hit. As for the redesign, yes it will be unveiled in a couple weeks. But, it won't even go into production at the plant until late summer. I wouldn't expect it to show up at the dealers until September or later if there are problems.
