General Motors Fleet and Commercial Sales is launching a maintenance and upfit program designed specifically for fleet buyers.
The GM Business Choice program includes a 30,000-mile maintenance plan and cash allowance for vehicle accessories or upfits with any vendor, the company said. The incentive amount varies by vehicle, and ranges from $400 - $1,200; eligible vehicles include: cargo, passenger and cutaway vans, chassis cabs, 1500, 2500 and 3500-series pickups and the Chevrolet Avalanche, which is being discontinued.
The maintenance plan includes lubrication, oil and filter changes and tire rotation, and a 27-point inspection.
While the Business Choice program is not new, GM spokesperson Emily Moran told L&MT that it previously had not offered a maintenance plan, and only offered upfit incentives through preferred vendors.
“Our customers told us how important a maintenance plan is to them, so we listened,” said Ed Peper, General Motors U.S. vice president of Fleet and Commercial Sales, in a statement.
The program is offered to eligible small business customers who purchase more than one vehicle for work-related purposes.
