San Diego, May 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Costco Auto Program and Chevrolet have joined forces to deliver exclusive value for Costco members during a time when demand for trucks and SUVs is high.*
The Chevrolet Limited-Time Special features three models popular among Costco members: Chevrolet Silverado, Tahoe and Suburban. The Chevrolet Silverado – offered in light-duty and heavy-duty models – has been the pickup truck most-requested and purchased by Costco members for the last nine years through Costco Auto Program, managed by Affinity Auto Program.
“Chevrolet is pleased to provide Costco members such an exclusive discount,” said Bob Krapes, Chevrolet Director of Truck and SUV Marketing. “Savvy members know a good deal when they see one, and the Silverado, Tahoe and Suburban are the perfect vehicles to haul goods home even on the largest of shopping trips.”
The Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban are also among the top five large SUVs requested by Costco members, with the Tahoe being the most-requested model in the first quarter of 2020.
The program runs May 1 through June 30, 2020. Eligible Costco members who register at CostcoAuto.com/Specials and purchase or lease a new 2019 or 2020 model can combine a $1,000 Costco member-only incentive with Chevrolet incentives for which they qualify.**
“The exclusive $1,000 incentive combined with the additional incentives publicly available represents a big savings opportunity for Costco members,” said Rick Borg, Costco Auto Program general manager. “We’re happy to deliver this exceptional value on these highly sought-after trucks and SUVs.”
Customers don’t want a one-size-fits-all truck, so Chevy offers many distinct Silverado models for its light-duty and heavy-duty trucks. Across those models, different engine options are available, including a class-leading 3.0L Duramax diesel rated at 33 mpg highway. Tahoe and Suburban bring segment-leading features and technologies customers want – including advanced powertrains, advanced safety features and connectivity.
Costco Auto Program first teamed up with Chevrolet and General Motors in 2011 to provide exclusive, limited-time savings opportunities for Costco members. The Chevrolet Silverado was the most-requested model during that inaugural event and continued to be in the years that followed. During the last fourth-quarter promotion that ended Jan. 3, 2020, it again topped vehicle sales, representing approximately 18% of models purchased during the three-month promotional period.
