In response to customer demand, GM will be the first pickup truck maker in the U.S. to offer a box-delete discount to midsize, half-ton and heavy-duty pickup customers.
Available through both fleet and retail dealerships, the box-delete option will give customers a chance to exercise even more creativity in building a truck that suits their needs. The box-delete option has been available for GM's 2500 and 3500 models through the GM's fleet and commercial network, but this program will now extend to retail customers and include extended-cab versions of the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon as well as half-ton regular-cab models of the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra.
The new option eliminates the bed box, the rear bumper and spare tire assembly, and includes higher-rate rear leaf springs and a front stabilizer bar. Pricing discounts for the midsize pickups will be $575 off the suggested retail price, but the spare tire can be added back for $335.
The Silverado 1500 and Sierra 1500 regular cabs can be ordered in either two-wheel or four-wheel drive, with the former starting at just less than $31,000. A box delete for a 2500 heavy-duty regular cab with two-wheel drive will start at just less than $35,000.
