GM extends employee pricing through end of September

General Motors announced yesterday that it will not be ending its employee pricing for everyone incentive on September 6, as it stated earlier; instead, the world’s largest automaker will continue offering employee pricing for everyone through the end of September.

GM is also adding some of its 2006 models to the incentive deal, but don’t let the cheaper price tags of the chosen ’06 full-size trucks and SUV models – or the ’05 models, for that matter – fool you into making a decision that will cost you more in gas than you can afford.

According to the 2005 Fuel Economy Guide, the Chevrolet Malibu gets an average of 24 mpg city/35 mpg highway, whereas an Avalanche gets 14 mpg city/19 mpg highway. That’s an average fuel cost of approximately $964 for the Malibu and approximately $1688 for the Avalanche – a difference of $724 per year, or $2171 over three years.
