DETROIT – Beginning today through Jan. 4, 2016, more than 23 million veteran U.S. military personnel and their spouses can join active duty, reserved and retired service personnel in receiving the GM Military Discount on eligible Chevrolet, Buick and GMC models.
“As current and former members of our armed forces celebrate Veterans Day and the holidays with their families, we want to show our appreciation for their service,” said Steve Hill, GM vice president of U.S. sales and service. “Working with key partners like Building for America’s Bravest, Hiring Our Heroes, and the Achilles Freedom Team, we hope to do even more to continue GM’s 100-year legacy of commitment to the brave men and women of the U.S. military.”
First offered in 2008, the GM Military Discount features pricing below the suggested retail price for eligible vehicles. Typically, the program is available only to active-duty, reserves, retirees and veterans and spouses within a year of discharge. The expanded program extends the discount regardless of separation date.
