Minnesota Car dealers selling Canadian Trucks
 
I have noticed this trend on and off for many years.

I am curious if I can take advantage of the Minnesota loophole to get a car sold in the US with slightly different Canadian options (like a manual transmission) from a Minnesota Chevy dealer.

AKA If the Chevy dealer is willing to import and sell Canadian Chevy trucks why can’t I ask that same dealer to “get” a particular Canadian Optioned Chevy in their next truckload?

This would avoid the military like raping process a consumer has to endure to try to buy a Canadian car and import to the US .

Anyone ever buy a Canadian car on accident or know of a dealer that would help?

Look into the factory's warranty. Generally, a Canadian market vehicle won't have any warranty once you register it in the US: if you want ChevyUS to give warranty coverage, you should have bought a truck they sold, not one that ChevyCA sold. Maybe they'll be willing to sell you a factory service contract? I don't know.

I’m looking to buy something that is unlikely to be under warranty anyway.
So a non-issue.

Primarily I like the fact that Chevy Canada has manual transmissions while US does not and further I see Canadian Trucks for sale at Minnesota dealerships so what I propose is obviously possible, just a question of if any of those dealers would selectively import something I actually want

MTs also require less warranty work. :)

It sounds like a question for https://ecomodder.com/forum/member-war_wagon.html

A PM should goto the last known email address.

Disconsidering the Tornado, Chevrolet trucks with manual transmission have been phased out even in Mexico. It's quite surprising this option would be available in Canada.
