The new operation will cover local used inventories and GM's national stock of used cars. While the site will naturally feature Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles, CarBravo will also provide shoppers with non-GM brand options as well.
Each listing will include transparent pricing, vehicle history reports, a 360-degree view of the vehicle and a GM inspection. Each car will also receive "reconditioning" to ensure it meets GM's standards. A warranty is standard on any vehicle sold as well.

GM dealers are enrolling in the program now and CarBravo will open this spring.
