Prices Set to Drop on Trucks, SUVs, and Hybrids

Trucks and SUVsThe end of summer marks a seasonal slowdown for auto sales, causing carmakers to boost incentives - resulting in lower transaction prices for large trucks, SUVs and vans.

Also worthy of note for the bargain shopper are falling prices for luxury car models and hybrids.

Examples on truck deals include the 2010 Chevrolet Silverado and Ford F-series; large SUVs, including Chevrolet Suburban, Tahoe, Ford Expedition and Nissan Armada; and large vans including Chevrolet's Express line and Ford E-Series wagon line.

Higher premium luxury car models will also see a fall in prices, as incentives in this segment typically increase in the fall. Also, these vehicles are selling slowly right now, forcing dealers to make deals to clear them out. Examples include the 2010 BMW 7 Series and the 2010 Audi A8.

Hybrids too are coming down. Due to increasing competition, dealers are expected to become more flexible when negotiating prices for these vehicles: 2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid, 2010 Honda Insight, 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid and 2010 Mercury Milan Hybrid.

As the excitement subsides after new or redesigned vehicles are released, expect to see these redesigned models to come down in price: 2011 Infiniti QX56, 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2011 BMW 5-Series, and 2011 Ford Fiesta.






3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
