GM Adds More Cash Back to Red Tag Sale

By David Thomas  on December 9, 2008

As car sales keep on plummeting, carmakers continue their year-end sales. GM’s Red Tag Sale has been going for almost a month now, and today the company upped the amount of cash back offered on a number of 2008 models still on dealer lots. 

All the deals focus on trucks and SUVs, and we found many 2008s in our local Chicago inventory for most models. Rebates range from $5,000 to $10,000 cash back. 

For the speed demons out there, you can get a 390-hp Chevy TrailBlazer SS, originally priced at $32,900, for $23,338 after the cash back and Red Tag discount. If you can find that much horsepower in a new car for that kind of cash anywhere else, let us know.

A full list of new cash-back incentives is below. Red Tag Sale prices are not included; go here to check exact prices in your area.
