DETROIT Commercial customers are getting the white-gloves treatment from General Motors, as the automaker adds 74 dealers to its new commercial dealer program.

The Business Elite program was launched last March with the aim of providing business customers with "the industry's best sales and service experience from the time they enter Chevrolet or GMC dealerships."

The Business Choice program gives small businesses special deals on vehicles including the 2015 Chevrolet City Express small cargo van and 2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD CNG pickup truck. The City Express debuted at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show.

Small businesses that purchase an eligible vehicle may qualify for a cash allowance for vehicle accessories, according to GM. Eligible vehicles include cargo, passenger and cutaway vans, chassis cabs, and 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups.

GM on Wednesday said it grew its Business Elite program by 16 percent in the first year. The purpose of the program is to offer business customers a team of expert sales consultants to help the buyer pick the right vehicles for the job.

The program also features priority service, work-ready loaner vehicles and business financing and leasing options.

Tony Uebelhor of Uebelhor & Sons in Jasper, Indiana, is one of 526 Chevrolet and GMC dealers nationwide enrolled in the Business Elite program.

"You have a separate representative from GM who's calling on you and has the knowledge about commercial customers to advise you," said Uebelhor. "And if you have issues — anything from inventory to incentives — they're there to help you."

Edmunds says: Business owners who want more information should see their participating dealer or visit gmfleet.com.
