Municipal Lease

Municipal Lease helps you protect your investment.

Whether it's a Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac, municipalities need vehicles in order to function. GM Financial has the right option that allows public entities to make lease payments over the useful life of their essential-use vehicles. The payments under a lease program are subject to annual budgetary appropriation and are typically included as a line item in the operating budget and not considered debt.
