General Motors has rolled out a disaster relief incentive program for those affected by Hurricane Florence. The automaker will take $1,000 off of nearly every Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac or GMC vehicle for qualifying customers.
According to CarsDirect, GM’s disaster relief bonus for Hurricane Florence victims is good in the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Georgia. Those looking to take advantage of the bonus must provide a copy of an insurance claim related to damage caused by Hurricane Florence. GM will offer the discount through October 31.
Even better for most vehicles: GM will let shoppers combine the disaster relief incentive with other deals, rebates and incentives. One notable exclusion is “standalone” deals, however. Some GM brands, such as GMC, are offering 14 percent off of the MSRP of various models like the 2018 Terrain compact crossover. The deal translates to over $5,000 off a new Terrain, which makes for a better deal than the $1,000 bonus incentive for hurricane victims.
Those who aren’t looking to purchase a new car can receive $500 in disaster relief when leasing a qualifying vehicle.
But, rival Ford may have the sweetest deal of them all for Hurricane Florence victims. The Blue Oval will extend its A-Plan pricing to anyone affected by the hurricane, which is basically an extension of its employee pricing program. Not only will buyers be able to take advantage of the A-Plan, but Ford is also offering deferred payments for 120 days. Any buyer won’t make their first payment until 2019. Naturally, some of Ford’s high-end models such as the F-150 Raptor are not included in the assistance program.
At Fiat-Chrysler, the automaker will offer $500 in assistance bonus cash on many new models, including the 2019 Ram 1500. However, the program is only good in North and South Carolina. High-performance models and the new Wrangler are excluded from the program, too.
