Does anyone know when GM will announce supplier pricing for the Enclave? Also, will curent GM employee/retiree to friend supplier pricing be allowed on Enclave? The last I saw was the GM Friends supplier pricing was only available on 2006/2007 model years. ???

Thanks

How long after release does the supplier pricing kick in?

Can you some times negotiate a price less than supplier price?

It actually took the Saturn Outlook a while to show up correctly, but the Acadia was there quickly, so I think there's no set time. Whenever someone in GM turns on that flag. There are quite a few accounts of people negotiating and getting invoice, which is lower than supplier pricing, so yes, it can be done. :clap:

That's why I would like to order now, but am concerned what if I don't like it. I want to see and touch it before I order, ride is another concern, what if it rides soft, like TownCar or worse Camry!. I really like Acaida's handling and ride. I wish I can go to some AutoShow where they are displaying it at least one question will be answered.

I'm in the same mode as Coppermine. Tested an Acadia and liked it but attracted to the Enclave. I was attracted to the older MDX so a little comfort (Enclave) but 1 size up from MDX.

Ditto.

I had Audi Q7, MDX and Pilot on my list but when I came across Lambdas they all started to vanish from the list. First of gas mileage and 3rd row room on Q7 are so bad that it quickly went off the list. Waited for MDX then I saw what Acura did to such a successful vehicle it was dropped as soon as the specs and dimensions became available. Although it has a 300HP engine but it also suffers from insufficient room in the 3rd row, the very purpose of getting a new car for me at this time. I am left with the Pilot, but since 2008 model is redesigned which will not be available till fall, I do not like to buy it. I need a new car before mid June. I hope the Enclave will be available before then if not, I will get an Acadia.

Good news for me is I do not really need a new vehicle but would like one (DW is not as interested) So I can wait but it will be difficult. Maybe this forum is like therapy....

I think we all are in the same boat. I can relate my story to everyone... I don't know whether these forums are helping me or getting me more excited to get it as soon as possible. I am adicted to these sites :help:

I am glad that GM is hasn't announced a more attractive looking Chevy version of Lambda yet.

Here is what GM said when I emailed them.

Thank you for contacting General Motors. We appreciate the time you have taken to write us. The Buick Enclave went into production as of the 2nd of this Month and we expect the vehicle to become available in dealer showrooms in July. The GM Supplier discounted price appears on the invoice of the vehicles that arrive at the dealership. Once the dealerships start to have inventory, then you will start to see the GM Supplier price listed on the website. We advise you to keep in contact with your dealership for future updates on this vehicle. If you need assistance with locating a dealership, then please visit http://www.gm.com. Please enter your zip code on the left hand side of the site to start your search.

Sincerely,
The General Motors Marketing Team

I went to my local dealer to build a loaded FWD CXL on their computer.

The list was $43465.00 Supplier price was $40398.99

A solid 7% discount, not too bad.. ;D

Would the GMS discount be at or below invoice?

Has anybody received below supplier pricing? let say at invoice or close to it?

GMS pricing is generally a bit below invoice. While you aren't "officially" supposed to be able to use both GMS/Supplier pricing with Conquest bonus, my dealer let me do it without a question, so I think it must be up to the individual dealership.

Got my supplier pricing today. CXL w/ driver confidence, 8 pass seating, luxury pkg, and nav system

MSRP: $38965
Invoice: $36063
Supplier: $36663 (5.9% off MSRP)

I expected a better deal for supplier discount. Oh well, Guess I'll have t see if I can negotiate lower.

Here's the basic formula that works across every GM vehicle I have tested it on in coming up with this.


MSRPInvoiceSupplierEmployee
Base1.0.935.95.91
Options1.0.83.845.8

So, you take the MSRP and multiply it by .935 to get invoice or .91 to get employee pricing - you get the idea. The key thing no one ever realizes is that the discount rate is different for the base and the options. Make sure you subtract delivery off the GM website (it's rolled right into the base cost, $735 in Michigan) - that's a straight charge and is not discounted for anyone.

This isn't precise as I was just number crunching to figure it out - the "real" formula is probably based off of invoice instead of MSRP, but it will get you within a few dollars of whatever the dealer comes up with.

Also it appeared from my research that the higher cost options tended to be discounted more. For example, the $1295 DVD player seemed to be discounted at a higher percentage than, say, the $199 XM option.
