Many major models are being offered with zero-percent financing for the Memorial Day weekend.
This weekend marks the unofficial start to the summer, with the long Memorial Day weekend honoring those who lost their lives while serving in the military starting things off. If you were looking to buy a new full-size truck, this could be the perfect time because most manufacturers have saved their most tempting deals for this weekend.
According to CarsDirect, you can find a deal for just about every full-size pickup on the market. Most manufacturers are offering zero-percent financing, with Ford and General Motors offering an interest-free loan on the 2019 F-150, 2019 Chevrolet Silverado, and 2019 GMC Sierra for 72 months. Ram is also offering interest-free financing for 72 months for the 2019 Ram 1500. The Raptor isn't eligible for the deal, however, and it's worth noting that only specific Silverado and Sierra models are eligible. With the Silverado, the only version eligible is the Crew Cab with either 1LT or RST trims. As for the Sierra, Double & Crew Cabs are both eligible, but Denali and AT4 versions are not.
It isn't only US brands that are cashing in, either. Toyota is offering zero-percent financing for 60 months on 2019 Tundras in most parts of the US, while the mid-sized Nissan Frontier can be had with zero-percent financing for 36 months with no down payment and no payments for 90 days. In areas outside the West Coast, Nissan is offering $500 Memorial Day Bonus Cash.
While these deals may seem tempting, CarsDirect points out that other deals may offer better value in the long run. For example, Chevy is also offering a $9,015 discount for certain Silverado models instead of zero-percent financing. Over the course of a 72-month loan, it would be cheaper to opt for the discount instead of the zero-percent financing. The projected monthly payments would also be lower.
