DETROIT, July 30 (Reuters) - General Motors Corp said on Monday it had begun offering zero-percent financing for up to 60 months on the extended and crew cab versions of its 2007 pickup trucks to respond to discounting by rivals. "We want to be competitive in the marketplace and there has been increasingly heavy spending by our competitors," said John McDonald, GM spokesman. The new GM sales incentive took effect at dealerships on Saturday and runs through Sept. 4, McDonald said.
