2016 Ram 1500
John Vincent / U.S. News and World Report


Pickup trucks remain hot sellers, as continued low gas prices make them cheaper to own and new features make them more comfortable and carlike than ever. Manufacturers of full size trucks are trying to keep that momentum going with generous cash back offers this June.

Ram is offering up to $6,000 cash back on the Ram 1500, and others aren’t far behind. There are some low and no-interest finance deals on the big trucks, including generous terms from Ford for the F-150, but many are dependent on where you live.

If you’re looking for a compact truck, there are lease deals available on many models, but you’ll need to have a good estimate of how much you drive to figure out the total cost of ownership with some of the low-mileage leases.

Be sure to keep up with the available offers by using our often updated finance and lease deals pages, and find out where your dream hauler is ranked among its peers. You can save even more when you visit our Best Price Program, where you can receive offers from dealers that save you thousands, on average, compared to the sticker price.

Carefully compare your lease offers, however, as Chevy’s lease has a cap of 32,500 miles over the three-year contract, and it’s also only available on a specific model (2WD Crew Cab LT). Many other carmakers cap the mileage at 36,000 miles. The Colorado is available with a diesel engine option, making it one of the most fuel-efficient pickups on the road.

2016 GMC Canyon

Deal: 2.9 percent financing for four years

June brings 2.9 percent financing to the 2016 GMC Canyon pickup, though it’s only for four years. Ultra-low-mileage lease deals this June on the Canyon include a $249 per month offer for three years with $2,949 due at signing for a rear-wheel drive SLE Crew Cab.

The mileage cap on that lease offer is 30,000 miles, and then you’ll pay an excess-mileage charge of 25 cents per mile.

GMC is also offering an ultra-low-mileage lease deal on the four-wheel drive Crew Cab with the SLE Preferred Equipment Group. You’ll pay $299 per month for 39 months with $1,889 due at signing and a cap of 32,500 miles driven during the lease term.

The 2016 GMC Canyon is the No. 2-ranked compact pickup in our listings, behind the Chevrolet Colorado.

Deal: Zero percent financing for three years, 0.9 percent for up to five years

The Nissan Frontier is the model that has gone the longest without an update in the compact pickup segment. Faced with newer competition, Nissan has attractive lease and finance deals to keep it moving off the lots. This June, you can get a 2016 Frontier with zero percent financing for three years and 0.9 percent for up to five years.

If you bring your own financing you’ll get $750 cash back. Nissan’s also offering a lease deal with payments of $239 per month for three years with $2,999 due at signing for a Frontier SV 4x4. The Frontier is ranked No. 4 of four compact pickups in our rankings, but reviewers applaud it for a strong V6 engine option and an easy-to-operate infotainment system.

In some parts of the country, GMC is offering a 39-month lease for $299 per month with $4,569 due at signing on a Sierra 1500 Double Cab (2WD, SLE Preferred Equipment Group). You’ll want to read the fine print, as many of GMC’s lease deals have low-mileage allowances.

2015 Nissan Titan

Deal: $1,500 cash back

Nissan is also offering $1,350 bonus cash on Titans that are purchased with cash, financed, or leased.

The aging Nissan Titan holds the No. 6 position in our ranking of full size pickups. Though it provides plenty of power, its interior comfort and efficiency have not kept up with the rest of the full size pickup class.

The Titan XD is designed to fit in the space between light-duty pickups and bigger, less comfortable, and more expensive heavy duty models. Its towing capability is impressive, as is its off-road capability and cabin comfort. June marks the first time we’ve seen a finance deal on the new truck.

Nissan’s offering zero percent financing for up to three years, 0.9 percent for up to five years, and 1.9 percent for up to six years for well-qualified buyers in some parts of the country. The first Titan XDs to come to the market were equipped with high torque Cummins diesel engines, but recently a gasoline V8 has become available on the trucks.

Deal: $2,500 cash back in many parts of the country

You can get into a Tundra on a lease deal for between $309 and $389 per month for three years with between about $2,000 and $3,400 due at signing.
