There Are Some Incredible Deals On New Pickup Trucks Right Now

The Detroit Three are engaged in a truck war and you can benefit.

If you happen to be in the market or only thinking about buying or leasing a new pickup truck, now is probably a very good time to make a move. According to a Reuters analysis, the Detroit Three automakers are having themselves something of a “truck war” specifically among full-size pickup trucks. Trucks like the Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado and Ram 1500 have long had high profit margins, and Americans have had a long love affair with them in return. More than ever, these automakers are fighting for your business (and hard-earned dollars).

Reuters found that Ford is offering discounts of up to $12,000 on the 2018 F-150, the longtime best-seller in its segment. Just last month, more than 80,000 examples were sold, despite a supplier factory catching on fire and causing production delays. Chevrolet and Ram responded in kind to Ford’s incentives with their own, up to $13,000 on the 2018 Silverado and $16,000 on the 1500. And get this: the average transaction price for full-size pickups is around $42,000 to $45,000. According to J.D. Power, the average transaction price for a car during that same month was just over $32,000. Question is, how are these automakers still churning a profit while still offering generous discounts and other factory and dealer incentives?
