Community Involvement at Valley Buick GMC

At Valley GMC, giving back to the community has always been a major part of who we are. After all, our friends, family and neighbors — aka YOU — are the reason we’ve held such a strong standing in the community. We would be nothing without your support, which is why our Buick and GMC dealership in Auburn wants to support the community as much as we can in return. We love to sponsor and get involved with the community whenever possible, as it’s an essential part of our business philosophy. Whether you’re searching for a new or used car or scheduling auto service nearby, the fact that you’re a member of our community always comes first. Why? Because at Valley GMC we treat you like a neighbor, not a number. We’ll always do what we can to help the community that makes us who we are.

Valley Auburn GMC Uses Advertisement Designed by 5th Grader

2024 GMC Sierra 1500 Marketing Ad Contest Winner

Valley Auburn GMC has run a print advertisement in the Auburn Reporter for a 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 finance offer designed by a boy named Yaritizi, who is in the 5th grade at Alpac Elementary School.

This exceptional advertisement is the result of a community-driven initiative. Two local schools held a contest inviting 4th and 5th graders to design a print advertisement for a local business. Valley GMC was the subject of multiple entries, and we’re happy to announce that Yaritizi’s design was selected as the winner.

Yaritizi’s artwork covers a fair amount of ground. Most prominently pictured is a hand-illustrated driver’s side, front-three-quarter angle image of a 2024 Sierra 1500 Elevation model (as identified by the black wheels and black grille) in the model’s optional Dynamic Blue Exterior color. GMC designers would be pleased to see how well Yaritizi captures the GMC’s very prominent front end. Yaritizi also shows an intuitive ability to please the client with the accurately depicted GMC logo displayed large and centered in the ad. In contrast, the dealer name is shown top-center as part of Mt. Rainier’s snowcap. 

In addition to the truck, various tools are shown in Yaritizi’s work to cover the service end of the Valley Auburn GMC’s business. As is standard procedure, Yaritize left the offer details to the client. The red gasoline jerry indicates that the truck shown is not equipped with the optional 3.0-liter Duramax Turbo Diesel, but instead, either the standard 310 horsepower Turbo Max 2.7-liter inline-4, combined with an 8-speed transmission or the optional 355-hp 5.3-liter V8 with peak torque of 383 lb-ft connected to a 10-speed transmission.

The gas can image is on point, as the dealer-added offer information is for a 2024 Sierra 1500 with either gas engine that can be financed for 72 months with a low 2.9% APR. The offer amounts to a monthly payment of $15.15 for every $1,000 financed. The average down payment is 12.4%. GMC has another offer specifically for the Sierra 1500 Elevation model that slices $10,000 off the price. Both offers require financing to be made through GM Financial and are subject to their credit approval. Presently, both offers require retail delivery by April 30th, 2024.

If you are interested in a good offer on a new Sierra 1500, or some of the offers on other GMC models, or just want to help Yaritizi’s advertising career, pay a visit to Valley Auburn GMC and tell them Yaritizi sent you.
