Wow, there are some great deals to be had at the moment from General Motors. Not the least of which is on the Corvette, specifically the Z06 model, which we've had nothing but good things to say about, even at its $72K asking price. Now that GM is offering all of its models at employee prices, that cost drops by about ten grand! A Z06 for $62,653? Yes please... if only our meager blogging budgets would allow it. Similarly, a Caddy XLR-V can be had for $84,771.80 -- about a $15,000 discount.

Need an SUV? May we suggest a Hummer H3 for about $23K? Those in the market for a luxury sedan could certainly do worse than a Cadillac STS-V for $66,640.88 after some $14K in savings. Of course, practical shoppers can take five-grand off their Saturn Aura XR sedan and end up paying just $21,634.28 for the privilege. We're having way too much fun with this and there is plenty of other news we need to cover, so visit this site, find your best deal and leave it in the comments. Update: fixed spelling mistake in the title, thanks guys!

      A lot of people with better things to do crying about typos this morning.
      • 7 Years Ago
      I heard an ad on the radio today and they said, "at participating dealers only."
      • 7 Years Ago
      Well, What kinda hat? Derby, Fitted, One Size? Would you like salt, because dealers HAVE to make good on COMPANY discounts,incentives etc......dont want to lose that license ya' know!!
      • 7 Years Ago
      I wish one could get a ZR1 for not a cent more...
      • 7 Years Ago
      Typos are bad this morning guys...

      I guess this is one way to make people want to work for GM!
        • 7 Years Ago
        Jim, probably better not to criticise people's typos and then make one twice in your reply! :)

        More *caffeine* might help.
        • 7 Years Ago
        Yeah, right. Go to the dealer and try to buy it. They won't sell it to you, even with today's economy. I tried twice at several dealers to buy a regular C6 when they came out and was denied the sale AS A GM EMPLOYEE and that was in Michigan. Went to 3 different dealers. None would sell at employee pricing. They said they'd rather keep the car.
        • 7 Years Ago
        Better yet, the Cobalt SS is 19K where I live!

        A Loaded Silverado 3500HD LTZ is only 28K.

        haha I love employee pricing.
        • 7 Years Ago
        Then REPORT the dealer to GM Dan! They have to participate in the Dealer program or GM can toss them from the dealership network. Believe me GM would LOVE to drop dealers, especially in MI

        I worked for GM a few years back (before layoffs) & I priced a '06 Corvette with z51 package... stickered about 52K my price was $41,500!

        The 72K Z06 price includes a LOADED model... drop OnStar & other small luxuries & the MSRP starts @ $68,500 for a Z06... then the price drop!!a

        thanks for making the first comment be about their typos... with any luck, they'll start paying some attention to the embarrassing frequency at which they pop up and do something about it.

      interesting tidbit, my grandfather worked for GM @ A.C. Delco and has been retired for a long time. My dad still gets the employee discount, its a way for GM to keep customers. On top of that there are 2 different discounts, S plan or stock aka off the floor or O plan for if you order it from the factory. I forget if GM has extended it to grandchildren as long as the grandparent is alive but they did talk about it at one point.

      It's a nice move over all, my dad is happy with his overly discounted toyota vibe :-)

        zedster- They havent had GMO and GMS pricing since 2000. Only GMS now and supplier. Its printed right on the invoice.
      • 7 Years Ago
      damn. that website makes me realize how much I really don't want any GM car, lol. just about the only thing that I'd be interested in would be the Solstice GXP at 26k flat, but the rest of the small/fun cars aren't that great of a deal. I remember in '05 they were offering the 9-3 Aero (WRX in different sheetmetal) for under 20g. Now it just seems like a grand or 1500 off any small fun car. No thanks. :)
        • 7 Years Ago
        Actually, at that time, you could get a 9-2x for under $18K due to a stack up of offers. I believe there were reports of people getting them for under $15K.
        • 7 Years Ago
        As mentioned, the Subbie Saab was the 92X (not the 93X) & the Aero model never got that low... the Linear model might have dropped under 20K.

        I know 1st hand.... my 92X Aero had a 29K sticker, $5000 discount & my GM discount. After taxes my car loan was about 25K.
        • 7 Years Ago
        I jumped in on that deal. My 9-2x with the premium package was $21500. IIRC the sticker was almost $30k. I bought one of the last Aero w/5 spd. Fun and realiable car but I was coming from a Saab 900 and the seats in the 9-2x are aweful compared to what I was used to in Saabs. I would have kept it if it wasn't for that. I am looking for a car now and it makes me realize what a great deal that was.
        • 7 Years Ago
        I think you mean the 9-2x, not 9-3. And seeing as they started at $27k for the Aero, that would have been a pretty good deal if you're right.
      • 7 Years Ago
      If anyone gets to buy a Corvette with employee pricing I'll eat my hat. Dealers won't do deals.
      • 7 Years Ago
      The CTS is still selling very well without a olt of incentives.
      • 7 Years Ago
      There's one really big surprise that I saw. The Yukon HYBRID for $10k off! $5k in disount and another $5k in cash back. At $43k, that' a good deal.
        • 7 Years Ago
        Not a Hybrid, but you can get a Trailblazer SS with the 390 horsepower LS2 V-8! For only 25K! If GM could just keep this event for, like, 1 more month, they would get so many sales.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Er, why is the Cadillac CTS' employee price only $3,100 under the MSRP? I would expect it to be much more than that!
      • 7 Years Ago
      $10000 of?? $10000 off!
