The questions is why does the...How come 2014 Camaro SS does not have GG Tax and SS does they both have the same engine ?
I totally agree that seems to be the way it works out. Although someone else on this forum had mentioned a somewhat different and more complicated method. Couldn't find that list that showed 2014 MPG and whether subject to Gas Guzzler Tax, which seem to coincide with the 18 MPG average. I did come across this one that shows higher averages that were subject to the tax in 2013. Of course bottom line is $1300 no matter how they got there.:whatdoyouthink:I beleive the deal is that if the cars average of city/highway mpg does not equal at least 18 mpg, a tiered tax is applied. The lower the average, the more the tax. And next year that might get worse. I think some Cad V's get hit with over 3K in GG tax.
The cadillac site when you build your own has some incorrect numbers in the byo summary ... has for over a year. It lists the GG tax as $1300 but when you punch up a specific vehicle's sticker after searching the inventory it is the correct $2600 GG tax!I was pricing a new 2013 CTS V sedan today (great incentives right now!) and it has the same $1300 gas guzzler. IF I can get dealer to sell it at invoice and then add the 5k GM cash back plus 2k in GM credit card rewards (a 1k bonus on that right now) that take me ONLY about 7-8k more than the SS will be if I pay MSRP on it. Very tempting. The cash back ends Oct 31 though.
Funny, if I want ventilated seats on the CTS V I have to pay over 3k for the recarro racing seats! The SS is heavily loaded.
When you consider these things.
