One of the perks of your city hosting a major event like the Brier is that after the dust settles a local auto dealership often finds themselves with a surplus of almost-new vehicles that had been used as part of transporting teams and organizers to and fro.
With the caveat that they won’t be officially available to drive home until next month, that’s the case for Brandon’ Murray GM dealership after Murray Auto Group served as official vehicle supplier to the Brier.
I understand that a total of 13 Chevrolet vehicles from the current 2019 model year were used during the event including one cargo van, two Tahoes, two Equinoxes and eight Traverses. Before anything else those vehicles still have one more important gig at the World Curling Championships in Lethbridge, which they will soon be transported to by carrier. When that event is all done in April they’re scheduled to be brought back to Brandon with roughly 3000-3500km on the odometers by the time all’s said and done.
As part of demo pricing I gather that the Tahoes will be reduced by as much as $10,000, Traverses as much as $5000 and Equinoxes as much as $3500. One thing to keep in mind is that while each vehicle comes with warranty, that warranty on each vehicle will have started when they went in use at the Brier.
At last check two of the 13 had been spoken for with the rest being available to be reserved any time through the dealership.
