Where are all the Chevy diesels?

I live in a western suburb of Chicago and am looking to move up from a Chevy 1500 to a new 3500 crew cab srw diesel. Closest one is 75 miles away! Is this normal around the country that they are few and far between? The local Ford and Ram dealers all have a theirs in stock. I am if anything a Ford guy but the Chevy has some options I really like so will try to stick with Chevy. So what is the deal with Chevy HD trucks being so hard to find?

Stay with Ford. 3 warranty repairs in 4K miles on my HD. Rear main, tail light condensation and broken center console latch.

Hi,

IIRC, Bob Jass Chevy in Elburn -- about 50 miles straight West of the Loop -- had three on the lot when I was in there a few weeks ago.

Hope this helps.

They are popular! Mine had to be obtained from a dealership 3 hrs away. Last new 2014 duramax Long bed crew cab SRW 4x4 in a 500 mile radius (bought April 2014). Dealership had to trade a 2015 diesel to get it.

I found that here in Canada as well. Actually that tones of half tons but no one tons. Order time is close to 3 months. In our HOA hard core Chey and GMC owners bailed and bought Ford. Better prices and rebates as well. To each their own. Your local dealer should be able to search out a 3500. The new body style is quite nice as well.

New body style still not available for 3/4 and 1 ton. I'd wait till they are available. LaterRJD

Local Chevy dealer did a search and came up with the one in Mendota. I'll check Elburn which is a lot closer and load up with some goodies from Ream's meat market while I'm there . Thanks.

The dealer I always use spent 8 weeks looking for one. Never could find one.

There's a dealer in Little Rock determined to be the World Leader in Volume. They had/have a bunch, and were quite eager to get rid of them.

But other than them, they are harder to find than an honest politician.

That's a big "yes" on Reams!!!

If you get Leonard in sales, tell him I sent you his way. Been buying from him since forever...
