GM’s recently upgraded Military Discount Program gives our men and women in the Armed Forces incentives to buy many different kinds of vehicles from General Motors, including Chevrolet, Buick, and GMC.
But soldiers who have their hearts set on a 2014 Corvette Stingray are going to be disappointed because GM has decided to leave the new C7 out of the discount program thanks to its overwhelming popularity.
The program, however, does allow servicemen to just pay invoice for most other Chevy, Buick, or GMC vehicles. That could account for thousands in savings over the MSRP price. Furthermore, the discount can also be combined with existing dealer incentives, including bonus cash, consumer cash, and trade-in allowance.
“GM has long supported the military and military families, and we hope this simplified and enhanced discount will show our appreciation for their service and help make it easier for them to own one of our great new vehicles,” said Chuck Thomson, general manager of GM Retail Sales and Marketing Support.
The new GM program is open to Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, National Guard and Coast Guard, including active duty, reserve members and military retirees and their partners.
Our soldiers have to leave their families behind for long periods of time and risk their life and limb every day, so we appreciate GM’s willingness to offer a nice discount to these brave men and women.
It would have been nice if the Stingray was included in that program, but with some ordinary Americans paying at least sticker price and in some cases thousands over MSRP because of the old supply-and-demand, we understand why GM had to make its decision.
