Ford Offering Large Incentives This Month

March 8, 2012

So far this year, most car makers are offering fewer incentives compared to last year. Ford seems to be the only exception.

According to, Ford is the only major manufacturer to increase incentives this year. Toyota and Honda are expected to join Ford, but not before their inventory levels have fully recovered - probably May or June.

In the meantime, Ford is upping the ante this month by offering large cash-back rebates as well as 0% APR rates on several popular vehicles.

The following is a list of the largest incentives currently offered for 2012 model year vehicles and leftover models. These are all good through April 2, 2012.

Keep in mind that incentives in your local area may vary. Use the CarWoo service to get pricing and detailed incentives in your local area.
