Ford Offering Large Incentives

October 25, 2012

Ford is currently offering a slew of rebates, finance incentives, and lease deals on most of their 2012 and 2013 models. In addition to cash rebates, Ford is also offering bonus cash of up to $2,000 on some models.

Most of the 2012 models come with 0% financing for up to 60 months, but if you have excellent credit, you'll usually do better opting for the cash rebate instead.

Below are the current deals. Make sure to check with your local dealer to make sure these are available in your local aread (incentives differ by region).

When you're ready to buy a Ford, make sure to use the CarWoo Deal Finder to negotiate the best deal.

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.
