The Detroit-based automaker General Motors has a history that can be traced back to 1908, more than a century ago! Today, the corporation makes vehicles under various brands - and Black Friday presents an ideal time to cost-effectively buy one of the following vehicles of the "GMC" brand.

2018 GMC Acadia

General Motors runs an auto loan financing arm, GM Financial, which allows you to afford GM vehicles more easily. Those vehicles include the 2018 model of the GMC Acadia mid-size SUV, on which you can get $5,000 cash back through GM Financial.

This offer isn't available for the 2019 Acadia, but that's no big loss, as it features no major improvements on the previous-generation model. Therefore, you would be getting a lot for your money if you act on this offer - which, for all except the SL trim level, will run until November 30.

On the subject of the 2018 Acadia's trim levels, most of them feature three rows of seating. However, the models of all trim levels have in common an upscale interior, supple ride and touch-screen infotainment system supporting the technologies of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

2018 GMC Sierra 1500

This light-duty pickup truck has much in its favor - including horsepower of 420, as well as, in fuel economy, 18 miles per gallon (MPG) in the city and 24 on the highway. It's also capable of towing up to 12,500 lbs - and, for all of that, you would usually pay at least $29,000, the official starting price.

Fortunately, however, the 2018 Sierra 1500 - which comes in the finishes of Quicksilver Metallic, Onyx Black, White Frost Tricoat, Summit White, Cardinal Red and Red Quartz Tincoat - is included in GMC's Black Friday event this year. So, what savings can you make?

When you buy the SLT Crew Cab with the Premium Plus Package, you can save $3,429 on the MSRP, while there's also an option package discount of $1,250 and purchase allowance of $7,500. Overall, the Sierra's total value can be just $12,179 when you finance it via GM Financial.

2018 GMC Yukon/XL models

Other inclusions in the GMC 2018 Black Friday event include 2018 models of the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL range of full-size SUVs. Each model can seat up to 9 people and clocks up 16 MPG on city journeys and 23 MPG on highway trips for fuel economy. The towing capacity is 8,500 lbs.

The XL largely differs from the standard Yukon in its cargo volume, which is behind the third-row seating. The vanilla Yukon's cargo volume of 15.3 feet is extended to 39.3 feet for the XL model, while the third-row legroom goes from 24.8 to 34.5 inches for the XL.

During the Black Friday season, eligible buyers can pick up any of the 2018 GMC Yukon/XL vehicles through an appealing finance package of 0% APR over 72 months.

2019 GMC Terrain SLE AWD

This compact SUV offers a luxurious feel that starts from the moment you climb into it and continues as you drive it, thanks to a comfortable ride. The vehicle's fuel economy is excellent, too, reaching either 24 or 28 miles per gallon with use on the city or highway.

It's certainly reassuring to know, then, that well-qualified non-holders of GM leases can currently benefit from an ultra low mileage lease with the 2019 GMC Terrain SLE AWD. This SUV can be leased for a monthly charge of $199 over a 24-month period.

After all offers, only $3,259 would be due when you sign for the lease - and you wouldn't need to make a security deposit. However, this offer is only available at participating dealers, so be careful from which dealership you attempt to lease this vehicle.
