Including up to $10,000 off a Buick LaCrosse.
Near the end of a calendar year, automakers typically offer big incentives to clear out their excess inventory. At the end of 2018, we saw amazing deals on the Ram Classic, Chevy Equinox, Impala, Silverado and Tahoe, Kia Soul, Toyota Tundra, Infiniti Q50 and QX50, and Hyundai Elantra. Even though many of those deals have now come to a close and 2019 and 2020 model year vehicles are starting to arrive, there are still plenty of deals on the table in February 2019.
CarsDirect has rounded up seven of the best car, truck, and SUV deals in the month of February and we suggest taking a look at one of these models if you want to nab the biggest discount on a brand-new car.
In the car category, the Buick LaCrosse leads the pack with up to $10,000 off MSRP. Buick has struggled to keep the LaCrosse relevant in a market dominated by crossovers and will eventually kill the model off entirely. Like the LaCrosse, the Ford Fusion is soon-to-be discontinued, so now is a great time to nab up to $5,250 off MSRP. You will have to look for a Fusion that has been sitting on the lot for a while in order to claim the full incentives.
The final car on the list is the Mazda3, the 2018 car, not the recently announced 2019 model. Mazda is offering a $3,000 rebate on the hatchback model along with a $750 loyalty discount and a $500 bonus for trading in another vehicle. We recently recommended the old Mazda3 to a friend, who was able to score around $6,000 off MSRP after haggling, although she did tell us there was a limited selection of colors to choose from.
General Motors is also offering some good SUV deals this month on the GMC Acadia and Chevy Tahoe. The Acadia is eligible for a 17% discount off MSRP, which is worth up to $7,475 on an SLT-1 trim with all-wheel drive. The Tahoe is eligible for a 10% discount, which could amount to $10,000 on a well-optioned Premier model. It is worth noting that both GM deals require buyers to finance through GM Financial. Ford is also offering great deals on its tiny EcoSport, with up to $4,000 in potential savings.
If you need a full-size truck, now is a great time to buy the previous generation 2018 GMC Sierra, which is currently being sold alongside the new 2019 model. GMC is offering a 19% discount off MSRP, which can add up to over $10,000 in savings.
