Auto sales in the US are at a 25-year-low, and both dealers
and manufacturers are dying to get showroom traffic going again. There isn't a whole lot working right now, so GM
is throwing more cash on the hood of '08 models to shock some life into its Red Tag sale. Trucks and SUVs are getting the lion's share of the love, with rebates
of $5,000 to $10,000 off selected 2008 models. The Equinox
sit on the low end of the rebate spectrum at five large, while the Silverado and Sierra tip the scales at up to $8,000.
If you've been waiting for the chance to own a Tahoe
, they also have $8,000 in customer cash, while the General is willing to put $9,000 on the hood of the Suburban
. Not surprisingly, the large-and-in-charge Cadillac Escalade
and Hummer H2
have the biggest incentives at $10,000 off MSRP. It looks like GM is in the mood to deal, so if you play your cards right, you could probably get Rick Wagoner to pick you up in the Volt mule and drop you off at the dealer.
