Many Chevrolet Memorial Day deals feature financing of 2.9 percent or more, which isn't very competitive. However, zero-percent financing is available on Chevy's popular SUVs. They also come with $500 in Memorial Day bonus cash.
For instance, the 2016 Chevrolet Traverse comes with zero-percent interest for five years plus $500 Memorial Day bonus cash. The three-row Traverse offers more cargo space per dollar than pretty much any other SUV on the market. It also has an upscale interior that you'll be comfortable in on the longest road trips. The 2016 Chevy Equinox is also available with $500 bonus cash, and the 2016 Trax is available with $1,000 bonus cash, although both have a less-impressive 2.9 percent five-year interest rate.
