Biggest Discounts on 2018 Models

August 2, 2018

If you're looking for a great deal on a new car and you intend to keep it for at least 5 years, buying a leftover model or model that is close to being replaced is usually a good bet - and now is still a good time to take advantage of any remaining 2018 models. Some desired colors and options may be harder to find in your area depending on how long the 2019 model has been available, but most of these models still have plenty to choose from.

Using TrueCar's database, I compiled a list of the best 2018 model year deals available right now based on average selling prices. The list includes some models that are being discontinued or redesigned, with some models such as the Ram 1500 offering over $9,000 off MSRP.

As always, if you're shopping for a new car right now, I recommend you use TrueCar and Edmunds Price Promise to quickly see the best deals being offered 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.
