- Special program for Chevy and GMC Business Elite dealers
- Includes listings for new commercial trucks and vans
- Easier for small-business customers to find commercial vehicles
AutoTrader.com announced a new program to help small-business owners and operators shop for commercial vehicles more easily. The program includes commercial truck and van listings from the new-vehicle inventories of Chevrolet and GMC Business Elite dealers. The innovation from AutoTrader.com differentiates commercial listings from those of regular passenger vehicles. It makes navigating simpler and provides comprehensive information and photos for each vehicle listed.
The program starts with a national feed posted to AutoTrader.com that includes commercial listings from each Chevy and GMC Business Elite dealer. Listings for Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana full-size vans and Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra work trucks are included in the feed.
Each listing includes nine photos and one make-specific video. Listings also include ad links so commercial vehicle shoppers can learn more about GM's Business Elite program and Business Choice incentives. Business Elite dealers are trained to help commercial customers get the right vehicles for the job at hand. Business Choice offers customers maintenance plans along with cash-back or upfit allowances for accessorizing or equipping a new commercial truck.
Matt McKenna, AutoTrader.com's senior vice president of national accounts, explained that strong demand for commercial vehicles -- fueled by a rebounding construction market -- makes the timing of the new program ideal.
"Shopper interest in the truck segment is up 13 percent year over year on our site, and it is currently the most-shopped segment, capturing 13.1 percent of all shopping activity," McKenna said.
Finding the right vehicle for a business application can be challenging. Anything less than the ideal work truck or van can make a dent in the bottom line. With the new commercial truck listings from AutoTrader.com, business shoppers will find Chevy and GMC trucks and vans made to work, and dealers who understand the needs of businesses.
