Best Deals on Minivans & SUVs
September 11, 2014Back-to-school is in full swing, and some families are starting to realize their current mode of transportation is not big enough for hauling everyone and all usual school equipment -- backpacks, sports equipment, band instruments, art projects and the like. It might be time to upgrade to a larger vehicle, such as a minivan or sports utility vehicle (SUV) to get everybody back and forth comfortably and safely.
TrueCar recently released a list of the best deals available right now on SUVs and minivans, with potential percentage savings as high as 16.7% off MSRP. Those on the list include the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country, 2014 Ford Expedition, 2014 Cadillac Escalade, and 2014 Toyota Sienna.
And for even greater savings on these minivans and SUVs I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggleto see the best prices in your local area.
