Car Deals Are Back.

Ah, autumn. Crisp leaves, pumpkin spice everything, holidays to look forward to, and maybe a new car to buy, too? If you’re in the market for a new car deal, slower-selling models are the ones to look at now: Deals are very real right now, there are incentives to be had, and new cars are more fun and interesting than ever.

There are many ways to save on a new car. Cash-back incentives, low lease payments or negotiating down from the MSRP. Low-interest financing may also be available, either from your the dealership, an auto finance company like Capital One or from your bank or credit union.

Many dealers are still charging a premium over MSRP for in-demand vehicles, but if you are on a budget or just want a fair fair deal, looking at models with deep inventories can be the smart way to shop.

Here are some great new cars with larger-than-average inventories to help you navigate through the sea of in-demand, full-price vehicles. Keep in mind that incentives and discounts may not apply to all trims, all buyers may not qualify and noted deals may not be available in all states or at all dealerships.

But at a time when interest rates are at a 20 year high, every little bit of money we can save is a welcome thing.

Nissan’s electric offering was one of the first electric cars available to the public, one of the most affordable and built in the US so it qualifies for the full federal tax credit. And with a flood of electric car competition, Nissan is offering APR rate incentives for the LEAF, as well as rebates for the charging kit and cash incentives for military personnel and recent grads.

Why We Love It:

  • With a single charge on the 40 kWh battery, you can go about 120 miles
  • Heated seats and steering wheel use less power than an HVAC system
  • Great for running errands around a city or getting the kids to activities
  • Starts at $28,070

Jeep Cherokee

Jeep loyalists might be surprised to hear of a surplus of vehicles from their beloved brand, but it looks like base prices have crept up as the company has become increasingly competitive. One of the effects of this situation is that Grand Cherokees and Wranglers may be upstaging the Jeep Cherokee. But this is a great time to grab this Grand Cherokee mini-me; the company has announced they are going to phase out the Cherokee.  The good news is that you’ll get lots of little luxuries you wouldn’t necessarily expect, or object to, and a $1,000 cash back bonus if you qualify.

Why We Love It:

  • This midsize SUV is a classic, born in the 70s, and fitted with all the best tech possible
  • All-weather and all-terrain capabilities
  • It can haul up to 4,000 pounds, so you can tow that boat you bought with the money you save
  • Starts at $37,695

Do you wish to be surrounded by luxury, bliss, and peace when you get into your car? Of course, you do.

But with a redesigned model on the way and a hypercompetitive luxury 3-row SUV category, it’s time to move this car in to people’s driveways. If you’ve been eyeballing a 7-passenger SUV, Infiniti is offering a $2,000 “Conquest” cash back on its purchase.  And, if you own a Nissan or another Infiniti and wish to trade it in, the brand also offers a $ 1,500 cash-back bonus (if you qualify).

Why We Love It

  • Luxurious touches, like semi-aniline leather and power reclining passenger seating
  • Alluring exterior details, like dark chrome, 22’ alloy wheels, and adaptive headlights

One Last Thing about New Car Deals

With all the inventory, dealers should also be more negotiable on price, offer better trade-in prices and perhaps more attractive financing, in addition to the deals and incentives. The competition is fierce, there are many new cars headed to their lots and the end of the sales year is nearing. So it only makes sense.

But don’t forget – there can be hidden fees, not all buyers or car models may qualifiy for incentives and not all dealers may participate. So do your research, ask a lot of questions and shop around; if you’re hunting for a deal, there’s one out there for you.

Happy shopping!
