General Motors announced Feb. 1 that 2013-MY GMC Sierra 1500 ½-ton pickup truck owners will receive a higher level of coverage that includes standard scheduled maintenance. GMC is calling the coverage "Pro Grade Protection."
Pro Grade Protection covers standard scheduled maintenance costs for two years or 24,000 miles — whichever comes first — for all 2013 GMC Sierra 1500s sold between Feb. 1 and Feb. 28, 2013.
Pro Grade Protection combines the Sierra 1500’s five-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty and a three-year/36,000-mile bumper to bumper warranty — whichever comes first. Coverage is included in the price of the vehicle.
Pro Grade Protection includes:
- regularly scheduled oil changes
- oil filter replacements
- tire rotations
- multi-point vehicle inspections
Customers will be eligible whether they lease or purchase, and the coverage is completely transferable between owners.
“Pickup owners tend to keep their vehicles longer than most, so it’s essential that GMC holds the Sierra to the highest standards possible,” said Brian Sweeney, vice president of GMC sales and service. “We want potential customers to know that our Professional Grade trucks come with class-leading coverage and an engaged dealership service experience.”
