Incentives, Lease Deals for July 2020
Are you looking at a new car, truck or SUV? New vehicle incentives are running a bit short in the new-car market.
And for cost-conscious shoppers, certified pre-owned may prove to be an attractive alternative.
For the July 4th holiday, many manufacturers tend to offer special bonuses that can get you an extra $500 to $1,000 in your pocket. Althought incentives fell back, there are still some good deals on new and used vehicles.
Currently, there are over 1 million lease returns that are due in the next couple of months.
We haven't yet started seeing huge discounts or incentives, but most manufacturers are now offering payment deferrals, along with 0% financing - some up to 84 months PLUS cash back - although some of these have been reduced recently. Many have also introduced loyalty bonuses, so if you do have a lease return coming up, this could put an extra $1,000 to $2,000 in your pocket.
My advice right now: If you don't need a new car anytime soon and have the luxury of waiting, then wait until this fall.
