Pre-ordering a new car online has become a fairly standard practice across all vehicle brands over the past year. As manufacturers struggle to meet demands and the economy recovers, some vehicles by GM and other brands may be in limited supply. Perhaps you’ve thought about pre-ordering your next car or at least wondered if you’ll need to if you want to save for a model with the features you want. At #1 Cochran, we’re the best place to purchase your next car, including by pre-order.

Pre-ordering a car means placing an order ahead of its market release schedule, ensuring you get the exact one you want in terms of trim level, color, features, and more. This way of buying has become more relevant in the wake of limited vehicle supply.

The car is created, shipped from the manufacturer, and transported to our dealership. We’ll keep it a short time to let you come by and drive it home, or you could have it delivered to a place of your choice. Here’s how it works:
Along with updates from this page, we’ll also contact you directly when your car is ready. Feel free to place pre-orders for a new Nissan, Buick, GMC, or Chevy vehicle with #1 Cochran in Youngstown, Ohio.
Here are a few of the reasons you should pre-order your vehicle at #1 Cochran:
Why settle for a vehicle that is “close enough” to what you were really after? Our pre-order page helps you make sure you don’t miss the latest version of your favorite Nissan, Chevy, GMC, or Buick car when it’s released. Please keep in mind that trade-ins will have a final inspection to confirm the condition, adjusting the price for any notable discrepancies.
Although #1 Cochran always carries a thorough inventory of new and used cars, trucks, & SUVs, drivers who have shopped around for cars many times will notice that the current market has fewer available models than there used to be. There are a few reasons for the inventory shortages, but the biggest is production. Put simply, the economy is still in the last stages of recovery from the lockdowns.
The reason fewer cars are available is that manufacturers chose to make less. They made orders for lower numbers of parts as the Covid-19 pandemic was forcing more and more lockdowns and closures. Because no one was going outside or traveling, manufacturers knew that fewer people would want to buy cars. However, as things got better and lockdowns ceased, every major automaker now wants to scale back up to normal.
However, the United States doesn’t have many facilities to produce its own microprocessors, which are the plastic and metal chips that power modern computers. This is the most important part shortage that is limiting car availability. Modern cars all use computers for many systems, from general operation to safety features and infotainment screens. These computers need microprocessors, but the facilities used to produce them in the United States can’t handle all the demand at once.
As for when things will level out and the market will fill up again, it’s difficult to say. Predictions made in January suggested that the microchip shortage would improve in the first half of the year. However, most expert predictions now suggest that things are more likely to go back to normal at the end of 2022 or early 2023.
Inventory shortages and driver preferences are leading to more and more people choosing to pre-order their cars. During the pandemic, when many people had no choice but to order a car online in this way, they enjoyed the simplicity and the chance to consider different options. Compared to browsing long rows of vehicles at your average dealership, being able to pre-select and customize a purchase feels informative and empowering.
