Mercedes seems to be able to do it. I know, different price point, but the cost comes from the service department, and also as a way to generate sales leads (people driving the newest version of their car, and suddenly wanting the new and improved one).

Occasionally, they would give us an upgraded loaner (E350 for the C300, ML for the GLK, CLS for the E550). They aren't stupid.
Jaguar did the same. We traded an XJ8 with 130k miles for an XF service loaner, and bought the loaner we were driving while the XJ8 was in for (traded the XJ8 while it was on the rack for the 130k mile service).
A Chevy dealer COULD do it, they just don't want to. They could use CPO cars as loaners, as well.

It was once theorized that an infinite number of monkeys, typing on an infinite number of keyboards, would eventually recreate the works of Shakespeare.
Thanks to Internet message boards, we now know this is not the case.
