If you’re shopping for a pickup truck, there may not be a better time than right now. Led by General Motors, there is some fierce competition going on to move pickups out the door.

 According to a report by Automotive News, Chevrolet and GMC have a larger-than-normal stockpile of pickups available and they are aggressively working to reduce the surplus with consumer incentives from $3000 to $4500. Why the excessive surplus? GM is introducing an all-new pickup in late spring of 2013 as a 2014 model, and the retooling for the factories to build them necessitated the stockpiling of 2012 and 2013 models to make up for the plant downtimes.

 As a result, Chevrolet and GMC dealers now have over a four month supply of Silverado and Sierra pickups that they need to move, and that is great news for pickup buyers. Their usual truck event that runs in October was stretched to two months and started on Labor Day.  In addition to the hefty consumer cash, GM is also offering big incentives to dealers that exceed their sales goals. That’s money that isn’t advertised to the consumer but could mean even more aggressive deals as the sales event winds down in late October and dealers try to hit that target.

Naturally, the competition isn’t going to take this laying down. Ford, Ram and Toyota are all responding with big incentives of their own.

Ford’s truck sales event also run from September through October and choosing their F-150 could net you between $1500 and $3000, depending on the model. Toyota has sales running through October 1, and up to $3500 is available on certain Tundra models.

Ram is also introducing an improved pickup soon as a 2013 model, and is offering up to $3500 cash back on the outgoing 2012.

With the GM pickups being the longest in the tooth, having been designed in 2006, consumers should expect Chevy and GMC truck dealers to be all the more motivated as they respond to the competitions’ counter-punches.

All of this is music to the ears of bargain-hunters. When you’re ready to haul away a great deal on a pickup truck, start your research on AutoBuying101.com.
