General Motors saw big sales in February, helped by robust incentives such as special lease programs and zero-percent financing. It looks like those types of incentives will continue in March.
About 27 of the more than 40 models GM sells have zero-percent financing deals for at least 60 months, with many vehicles offered with 72 months of zero-percent financing. March is “Truck Month” for Chevrolet and GMC, as many trucks and full-size SUVs, such as the GMC Yukon, have zero-percent financing for 72 months, plus additional cash back if you finance with Ally Bank, a preferred lender of GM.
GM’s recent acquisition of AmeriCredit (now GM Financial) has allowed the automaker to offer attractive lease programs, once again, in the Northeast and the Midwest since December and January, according to Automotive News. Leasing is especially important for GM’s luxury brands, and for March, leasing programs have expanded dramatically.
Buick is promoting a “Sign and Drive” event that includes $0 down, $0 security deposit and $0 due at signing leasing – along with low monthly rates — on select Regal, Enclave and LaCrosse trims. GMC and Cadillac are offering a good selection of low-priced lease programs, too. While Chevrolet doesn’t seem to be actively promoting its $350-per-month lease program for the Chevrolet Volt anymore, the automaker has confirmed with us that it is still being offered.
Check out the full chart below. Most of these incentives end May 2, so there is plenty of time to act.
