For the months of March and April, Chevrolet will offer free scheduled maintenance for its Silverado 1500 pickup trucks, expanding the program started last month by GMC with the Sierra 1500. Now both GM half-ton pickup trucks will offer two years of free scheduled oil changes and standard maintenance through dealerships as a carrot to truck buyers who may still be hesitant to purchase a new pickup.
According to Automotive News, the reason GM included Chevy in the promotion was because of the campaign's success with the Sierra 1500; the company received great feedback from buyers and dealerships.
The package includes oil and filter changes, tire rotations and vehicle inspections for two years or 24,000 miles, which ever comes first, but is only good until the end of April. The promotion is designed to help thin out inventories of the light-duty trucks as the 2014 models prepare for their debut in dealerships later this summer.
