More on Best Car Deals

Great deals are available for trucks and SUVs this month. Ford is offering low interest financing plus bonus cash, or up to $3,250 cash back, on its best-selling 2017 F-150. You can also get low or no-interest financing on popular SUVs like the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox2016 Honda CR-V, and 2017 Kia Sportage.

Several new cars, including the 2017 Mazda3 and 2017 Toyota Camry, are available with no-interest financing, and some new cars, including those two, are also available with bonus cash. If you'd rather secure your own financing, you can take advantage of cash back deals instead. Toyota is offering up to $2,500 cash back on the Camry in many regions.

This month's purchase deals even include some offerings from luxury brands. You can get low interest financing for up to six years on the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and BMW is offering low interest financing for five years on the 2017 3 Series.

To determine which deal on a new car, truck or SUV will save you money, you have to run the numbers. Cash back offers are an easy way to save thousands, as you can simply deduct the cash back amount from the vehicle’s price. Low interest rates can also save you thousands, but you get those savings over the life of your loan, not up front. Plug the details of the financing deal into a payment calculator, and focus in on how much you'll pay -- or how much you'll save -- due to the lower interest rate. The best financing offers are ones with a zero-percent interest rate, which means you don't end up paying any extra because you took out a loan on your new car. You end up paying the same amount as a cash buyer.

The kind of deal you get on a new vehicle can also depend on your location, as car makers sometimes offer different prices and discounts in different areas. For example, you’ll likely save a hefty chunk of change on a new truck in a dense city than in a rural area, as car makers want to spur sales of slow-selling models. We strive to keep this list of the best car deals up to date, but deals can change without warning. Deals listed are from manufacturer sites using representative ZIP codes, but deals may vary based on location. The best way to find out if you can take advantage of these deals is to contact a dealer near you by clicking the orange button next to the car you’re interested in.
