American servicemen and women interested in a new vehicle from Chevrolet, Buick or GMC now have a bit more incentive to head down to their local dealer, as General Motors has announced plans to improve its military discount program.

The new GM Military Discount Program offers eligible consumers a new Chevy, Buick or GMC at invoice pricing, which in some cases can take very large chunks out of a car's retail price. When factored in with other incentives, most of which are available with the Military Discount, the bargains are thick on the ground for members of the US armed forces.

GM's Retail Sales and Marketing Support general manager, Chuck Thomson, said, "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." The program is open to all active duty and reserve members in the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, National Guard and Coast Guard, as well as veterans that have been out of the service for less than a year. Military retirees and their spouses are also eligible for the discount.

Take a look below for the press release from General Motors.

DETROIT – Enhancements to GM's vehicle discount program will save active and reserve military members thousands of dollars when they purchase a new Chevrolet, Buick or GMC car or truck.

The simplified GM Military Discount program offers an invoice model and options cost (less than the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price) plus destination fees and a $150 program fee for eligible vehicles. It improves what was already the most generous vehicle discount in the industry.

The discount can be combined with most current incentives – including bonus cash, consumer cash, GM Card and trade-in allowance. Also included is a 2-year/24,000-mile scheduled maintenance program on new 2014 models.

"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, GM Retail Sales and Marketing Support.

GM's military discount is available to more military members than any other brand: active duty, reserves, veterans within one year of discharge date and military retirees and their spouses.

At the GM Military Discount Program web site active and reserve members of the U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, National Guard and Coast Guard can obtain additional information about their new-vehicle discount, in addition to specific, model-by-model examples.

          I have an OIF Verteran plate holder on my Infinit and I wear it proud. Just because I served doesn't mean I have to buy a domestic brand.

          Well Camry has the most USA made content of any cars. What you saying is to be true American your last name has to be Johnson.........if it is Gonzalez you are not American. Dude Camaro (Johnson) is built in Canada, Toyota Camry (Gonzalez) is built in USA with 90+% of parts being made in USA..........................which is more American. Dude, do you have any brains.................AT ALL.

      I'm surprised teabaggers haven't started name calling yet. Perhaps the party clown Derrll Issa can start an inquiry. Or perhaps two face liar Ted Cruz can demand repeal of this offer in exchange for passing the CR.

      Um, some (if not most) of our military are at (or below) the parvity.level. Some even qualify for food stamps. How can they afford a car? They need more help than this.

        After nine years active duty I soon discovered why most military people live in poverty or cash poor. These discounts and the 900 other crooked business near post offer easy credit at absorbent interest rates, These young men and women many on their on for the first time fall into these traps and end up cash poor and loaded with debt. Then you have senior soldiers E4-E6 who many have been married and divorced now must pay child support or alimony or in some states both. States like Texas force you to pay 20% of your income for one child. Combine this with the debt mention earlier and the picture paints itself. Military men are are stalked and prayed upon by all types of predatory lending scams. Most soldiers don"t figure this out until mid career about 10 years senior E-6 or E-7. The best advice I gave all my soldiers was to take a financial awareness and budgeting class.

        i thought that big bonus, plus the fact that all your meals, and housing is paid for while your out during your few years, so if your not blowing your money on soda pop and candy there shouldnt really be a reason your account would be just growing as you get paid and have very little expenses right? that is of course assuming you dont have a wife blowing all your money....

        An E1 fresh into the service gets a base pay of of $1516 a month; if they have dependents & don't get base housing, they get a housing allowance of $650 a month. Not counting any other allowance or other pay, he or she would have to have a non-working spouse & 3 kids to be under the federal poverty level. And E4 with 4 years in gets $2305 in base pay, and a $732 housing allowance (if they have dependents) - depending on their other costs, they could probably afford a Cruze, or a entry level Equinox, Malibu, or Verano.

          $12 an hour! Wow. It's only 50% less than the average hourly wage in the US.

      That's nice, but wait a second.... How will they make the payment when our service men and women are not being paid due to the shutdown?

        Teabaggers in congress who caused the shutdown should have their paychecks forfeited and fired from their jobs.

      You can get invoice on any car just look into the costco auto program. It costs a whopping $50 a year to buy a costco membership. All costco does is act as a concierge between you and fleet dealers to get invoice pricing. Basically this is a joke of an offer, GM still makes a good chunk of money on invoice pricing, especially on cars with options (invoice takes like 10% off, even though a certain option may be 80% in profit). Dealers know this, thats why sometimes you can walk onto a lot, and with correct bargaining can pick up certain loaded cars for well beneath invoice (if theyve been sitting on the lot forever), because the dealer will still make some money that way.

      As a veteran, I'm not sure it's worthy of a news. Such discounts were always there not just GM brands but along with other domestic brands. The best time to shop them is when you are deployed! TAX FREE!

      How come the ones that pay the taxes and the salaries for these soldiers don't get the same discounts? This crap and the employee discount nonsense is why I won't buy GM cars. We bailed them out and kept them in business and they went right back to the same crap of giving the employees big discounts while charging the public higher prices. At this point you should be grateful to the public that bailed your @$$ out and give them the same discounted prices.

        How? By buying millions of asian cars, making it a cultural faux pas to "Buy American" and eventually running them out of business?

      Sure. Give the ones with job security and amazing benefits to begin with even more discounts.
