Cars With the Largest Rebates

January 26, 2017

This week, I sifted through all of the incentives available nationwide on 2017 and leftover 2016 models to see which ones are currently offering the largest cash-back rebates.

There are some vehicles that are offering cash back rebates of up to $6,500, including the 2016 Ford Explorer, and up to $5,250 on the 2016 Ford Taurus.

Keep in mind, however, these incentives are the maximum available nationwide. Your local region may not have these same incentives, so check with your local dealers to confirm.

I recommend using TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see if these rebates are available in your region, and see the lowest prices dealers are willing to offer.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
