Sometimes, the timing of a new car purchase just can’t be helped — maybe you were planning on getting rid of your car this month, or had a deal in the works before the world started going crazy, or maybe your lease is up and you simply have to turn in your vehicle this month or face some penalties. Well, GM is hoping some sweet deals on new vehicles will help you pick one of its offerings — and we’re not lying when we say that the deals GM is serving up are worth your consideration. But since not all the cars GM serves up are necessarily worth consideration, here are our top five picks for the best cars and trucks GM makes, and the deals you can now get on each.
As always, deals near you may vary, and you have to navigate various hoops and hurdles to qualify, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still push for a comparable deal even if you don’t technically qualify — you never know what an eager car dealer might do for you in these trying times. And if you’re under house isolation, GM even has a plan in place to help you buy a vehicle from the comfort of your own quarantined couch.
1. 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV
You can get a whopping $9,833 off the sticker price if you buy your 2020 Bolt EV Premier outright, or $4,750 off with 0% financing for 72 months if you finance it through GM Financial. The deals are even better for the 2019 model of GM’s excellent all-electric compact hatchback, but Cars.com shows only 63 of those on dealer lots right now versus more than a thousand of the 2020 models. I generally recommend that people lease EVs, as the technology changes so quickly year over year and EV resale values tend to be terrible, plus there’s a deal here: $239 a month for 36 months for the 2020 with $3,259 due at signing (or $2,759 due at signing if you’re a returning GM lessee with a 2015 model or newer).
2. 2019 Chevrolet Corvette
The new mid-engine 2020 Corvette is getting all the attention these days, but the 2019 Corvette is still an amazing sports car; it’s chock-full of technology and looks dynamite to boot. There are over 1,000 of them on dealer lots, and GM is offering up 0% financing for 84 months on some of these awesome V-8 monsters. Spring is coming, the weather is improving, so pick one up and park it in the garage for when things return to normal and we can all go to Cars and Coffee this summer (standing 6 feet apart, of course).
3. 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 or GMC 1500 Sierra Crew Cab
Still need a full-size pickup truck? The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra half-ton trucks both qualify for the 0% for 84 month financing, plus you don’t actually have to make any payments for the next 120 days (aside from the down payment) if you finance through GM Financial. We’re not keen on their interior material quality, but they’re immensely capable, comfortable and spacious — and we’ve even found them to be remarkably fuel efficient.
4. 2020 Cadillac XT4
The smallest crossover from Cadillac is really quite good, with spunky dynamics, a classy cabin and attractive styling, and while Caddy isn’t offering the same level of incentives as the rest of GM’s brands, it’s still putting $2,000 on the hood and offering up 0% financing for 60 months for those who own or lease a model-year 2006 or newer GM vehicle. With more than 4,000 2020 Cadillac XT4s on dealer lots right now, it’s a good bet you can find one to fit your needs.
5. 2020 Buick Enclave
For my money, the best crossover GM makes may just be the 2020 Buick Enclave. Luxurious trimmings, smooth powertrain, plenty of space inside, and now you can grab one with 0% financing for 72 months and as much as $1,600 in cash on top of it if you own or lease a model-year 2006 or newer GM vehicle. Plus, there are more than 6,000 of them in dealer stock right now, so they’re plentiful.
