Under our recent story explaining why pickup truck inventory is about to become tight and prices a bit closer to MSRP, one active member of the GM-trucks.com community asked if GM would be offering any special discounts to truck owners/buyers. We hadn't seen any press releases or news reports on the subject (and indeed there is still no press release at GM's Media page). So we reached out to our contacts at GM. James R Cain at GM responded instantly (on a holiday) and with great detail. Jump to the Chevy Summary page here. Jump to the GMC Page here.
Chevy and its dealership network are already helping out. First off, dealers are putting together a fleet of special service vehicles that can act as loaners while customers' vehicles are in the shop having Harvey damage repaired. Chevy is also directing parts inventory to the region to enable those repairs.
Those whose vehicles were destroyed are being offered $1,000 in New Vehicle Replacement Assistance. This extra Harvey discount is after all other incentives and your best deal.
GM is also putting its industry-leading technology to work. Using OnStar, GM can direct those in need to the closest shelter, set up a hotel reservation, or help to put a person in contact with a family member.
GM is also partnering with the American Red Cross to provide aid and assistance.
