$1,500 Rebate on Upcoming 2010 Ford Taurus
In a sign of how bad car sales have gotten, Ford will be introducing the all new 2010 Ford Taurus in August with cash rebates of up to $1,500.
This is almost unheard of for a newly introduced model, especially one that has been hyped as much as the Taurus.
Granted, we don't know if sales of the Taurus will be bad, but Ford wants to ensure they will sell like hot-cakes. Here's how the rebates will work:
If you buy a 2010 Ford Taurus by September 1, 2009, you'll receive an "early-order" incentive of $500. You'll also receive a $1,000 cash rebate on all but the base model Taurus. (Taurus SEL, LTD, and SHO models).
