General Motors is now offering cash rebates of up to $US2,500 on some of its 2005 model vehicles, in another escalation of Detroit’s incentives war, according to Reuters.

GM spokeswoman Deborah Silverman told the news agency the automaker has also cut the basic cash rebate on most of its 2004 model cars and trucks by $500, to $3,500 and $4,500 respectively.

Customers financing their purchase of a 2004 model through GM’s finance arm would also be eligible for an additional “bonus cash” offer of between $500 and $1,500, Silverman reportedly said.

The bonus cash programme varies by region of the country and by model, she told Reuters, but in some cases, consumers could get a total cash rebate of up to $6,000 on vehicles from the 2004 model year.

The basic rebate on most 2005 cars and trucks, which are just now making their way into dealership showrooms, is $1,000, according to Reuters.
