Toyota Offering Great Deals on 2011 Models
The recently redesigned 2011 Highlander already has a $500 cash-back deal and an attractive lease rate of $319 per month. In fact, all of Toyota's lease rates are excellent.
These lease deals ask for less than $2,000 due at signing, so you're paying a lot less up-front compared with most competitors, especially for Toyota's pickup, minivan and crossovers.
Plus, in some regions, there's a "$0 Down Payment, $0 Security Deposit, $0 Due at Signing, $0 1st Month's Payment" deal for those who lease.
If you're financing, most models offer 0% to 2.9% for 60 months.
With nearly 60% of Toyota's inventory consisting of 2011 model years, almost all remaining 2010s have lost their incentives.
Most deals below expire Jan. 3.
