Cars With the Largest Total Cash Back Incentives

September 27, 2012

This week, I sifted through all of the incentives data nationwide on 2012 and 2013 model year vehicles to see which ones are currently offering the largest total cash-back.

The 2012 Toyota Tundra is #1, with total cash incentives of up to $9,000. The 2012 Chevrolet Impala is a close second, with up to $8,000.

Keep in mind, however, these incentives are the maximum available nationwide. Your local region may or may not have these same incentives, so you'll need to check with your local dealers to confirm. The total also assumes that you will qualify for "Bonus Incentives". These are incentives that are dependent on whether you currently own the same brand of vehicle or a competing model, whether you finance through the manufacturer, or have a trade-in.

I recommend you use the CarWoo Deal Finder to get prices on these vehicles and also to find out the exact incentives available in your local area. You can communicate with dealers through the CarWoo service.
