GM tough on everyone people who buy their most requested cars only to ship them for thousands via MSRP to a third party: Do so and negate some pretty important warranties. This includes the most powerful Cadillac ever: Escalade-V. GM announced Friday that it has stepped back the timeline slightly on the biggest Escalade from a 12-month ban to six months.
Onefollow GM agencythe owners of the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 SUV could sell their monster in just six months. It’s not clear why GM made the change, we’ve reached out for comment and will update with feedback.
The three most in-demand GM models may have their warranties voided – hoping to prevent both the seller and the buyer from trading. Owner of one of the three vehicles – Escalade-V, Corvette Z06 or GMC Hummer — people who sold those high-demand cars before 12 months of ownership could also get in trouble with The General in other ways. GM sent us this statement in July when the resale moratorium was first announced:
For Corvette Z06 and Escalade-V, if ownership of the vehicle is transferred from the original owner within the first 12 months of delivery, Bumper-to-Bumper, Powertrain, Sheet Metal covers , Tires and Accessories will be disabled.
For the HUMMER EV, if title to the vehicle is transferred from the original owner within the first 12 months of delivery, the Bumper, Electric Vehicle Propulsion, Sheet Metal, Tires and Accessories under the GM New Vehicle Limited Warranty will be cancelled. Battery Warranty coverage will not be affected for the HUMMER EV.
Anyone who attempts to flip one of these high-demand vehicles by selling it during their first year of ownership will be barred from placing future sales orders for certain high-demand products (as determined by GM). ). Thus, there is a significant risk to the hawker’s future ability to purchase, in addition to providing an incentive for customers to buy new and get a warranty rather than buying from a wheel loader seller.
The Escalade-V may stand alone in supercharged luxury SUVs, but it’s not the only GM model to gain the upper hand. GM places owner resale moratorium on first year of ownership for Corvette Z06 or GMC Hummer EV. We spotted a train salesman trying to sell a new Hummer for $310,000 – three times the MSRP. So you can get a Fancy Cadillac Lyriq or one work for-order trainer Cadillac Celestiqone in two are coming with the satisfaction of fixing everyone who tries to pronounce your luxury EV name.
