For consumers looking to get a great deal on a new car, year-end sales offer a lot of promise. Year-end deals even carry into the new year as car dealers look to try and trim their inventory in order to make way for new, pricier models. This dealer motivation makes for a great scenario when it comes to getting some discounts on a particular car model. This incentivized atmosphere holds true for the 2018 Chevy Traverse as well. General Motors (GM) has been known to offer some worthwhile incentives to help their dealers move their inventory. However, as a consumer, you still have to know which questions to ask for in order to get the best deal and save on the manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP). The following incentives are key ones to know about when trying to get that best year-end deal.
Are there any discounts off the MSRP available since this is a year-end/prior year vehicle?
Dealer discounts are available for 2018 Chevy Traverses up to $2,690 off of the MSRP. As individual dealers attempt to move this portion of their inventory, they may be willing to add on additional dollars to this offer. Also, the options installed on the individual vehicle may present additional room for negotiating further MSRP discounting.
What lease options are available for this vehicle?
The Ultra Low-Mileage Lease for Qualified Lessees lease offer is as low as $279/month for 36 months, with $2,950 due at signing (along with the 1st payment, also due at signing) and a $0 security deposit. A lease payment can even be as low as $269/month based on additional dealer pricing and discounts. The lessee is responsible for general maintenance, routine repairs, excess wear and a disposition fee of $395 is due at the end of the lease.
Is the GM Consumer/Customer Cash still available for purchasing a vehicle?
The Consumer/Customer Cash offer is still available, providing $500 towards the purchase of a 2018 Chevrolet Traverse. Per the Chevrolet website, the Consumer/Customer Cash and Select/Key Market Bonus Cash allowances can be combined to provide up to a $1,250 Total Cash Allowance. Also, this particular bonus is not available for the 2018 Chevy Traverse L model though.
I previously saw GM offering the Conquest Bonus offer during 2018, is that still available?
Yes, for customers in a current lease of a 2012-present non-GM vehicle (i.e., not currently leasing a Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, Hummer, Oldsmobile, Pontiac or Saturn vehicle), this $1,500 cash offer is an eligible deal. Also, this deal can be used for either the lease or purchase of any GM Vehicle, including the Chevy Traverse.
Does the GM Loyalty for Retail offer apply to the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse?
Yes, customers currently leasing any 2012-present GM vehicle (i.e., currently leasing a Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet or GMC car or truck) through Ally Bank, GM Financial or US Bank can receive $2,000 cashback with this offer if purchasing a 2018 Chevy Traverse. However, this deal is not available for a customer seeking to lease a Traverse.
Does the GM Customer Bonus Cash for Retail apply to a 2018 Chevy Traverse?
The GM Customer Bonus Cash for Retail deal is a $750 bonus cashback offer. This deal is available for those looking to either purchase or lease a 2018 Chevy Traverse. Additionally, this cashback offer from GM can be combined with other incentives and deals that may be available.
Are there any rebates still being offered for purchasing a 2018 Chevy Traverse?
Dealers can make available an additional rebate up to $1,000 towards the purchase of a 2018 Chevy Traverse. As a rebate, these funds may be made available after the purchase. However, some dealers are willing to offer the funds as an immediate credit at the time of purchase in order to further entice customers to complete the sale.
Is the 2018 Traverse eligible for the GM Select Model Bonus Cash incentive?
The GM Select Model Bonus Cash incentive can add an additional $1,000 discount off the price of a 2018 Chevrolet Traverse. Not all dealers reveal the availability of this bonus, so potential customers have to actively request this specific incentive when negotiating the Traverse’s final sales price.
Are there any other bonuses, deals or incentives applicable towards the 2018 Chevy Traverse?
GM does offer the Extended Family Card and Buypower Card Bonus Cash Offer. This bonus provides $250 towards the purchase or lease of a 2018 Chevrolet Traverse. Often times, customers must actively request this particular bonus in order to receive the deal.
