Car Buying Advice - Traverse pull-ahead question? How can I make this work?

edited July 2017 in Chevrolet
I'm currently in a Traverse with 6 payments left. I was contacted 4mo. ago about a pull ahead stating that we could get into a brand new one for the same price if not cheaper. I'm looking to get into a minivan but correct me if I'm wrong doesn't the pull ahead require you to buy another GM vehicle? Also sucks because I'm not seeing anything that GM has for minivans.

We looked at the Toyota Sienna today which we really liked but from what we we're being told there they had to buy out our remaining payments and roll them in.

I'm kinda confused as to what's going on here. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    The only way to get a pull-ahead program is through the Make and bank that you originally leased with. Otherwise, you are just trading your vehicle in. Sometimes GM might have an official pull-ahead program, but most of those offers are just advertisements, trying to get you into a new vehicle, and many times at a heavy cost to you.

    If someone contacted you with 10 months left on your lease, that wasn't any sort of official program. Just a marketing come-on.

    Thanks for the info! So with that being said and this being a dealer promo, there shouldn't have been a problem with them getting us into a minivan that was the about the same price just a different make(taking into account incentives etc.)?

    Sorry, but I didn't say that at all. It's just an advertisement. It's expensive to get out of a lease.

    Sorry I don't follow.. You're correct it is an ad. What heavy cost that I'm missing here (sorry just new to how the backend of leasing works)? Taking the whole minivan factor out of the picture, lets say I was just going to go into another Traverse. If they say they're going to do a new traverse at the same price just to get me in the door but then come at me with a different number after, that's a bait and switch false advertising.

    Bait and switch... that's the marketing business plan for car dealerships.

    Your lease is a contract, and if you want to break it, the price is usually pretty high.
