Deals on 2013 Car and Truck of the Year

January 24, 2013

The 2013 Car and Truck of the Year were announced last week at the Detroit Auto Show, and lucky for you they've decided to celebrate with special deals!

The 2013 Cadillac ATS was named the 2013 Car of the Year, while the 2013 Ram 1500 was named the 2013 Truck of the Year.

Incentives on the award-winning Cadillac ATS includes a special lease rate of $299/month for 36 months, with $2,199 due at signing. (Note the mileage allowance for the lease is only 10,000 miles per year, and you would pay 25 cents per mile over). This special lease deal expires on February 28, 2013. Or you can receive a special finance rate of 1.9% APR for 36 months when purchasing the 2013 Cadillac ATS.

As for the Ram 1500, current incentives include a $289/month special lease rate, with $2,999 due at signing. Additionally, rebates of up to $1,750 are available on select models and styles, plus low-interest rates of 2.9% APR are also available.

If you're looking to purchase either of these vehicles, I recommend using the free CarWoo Deal Finder to get the biggest discounts.

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.
