One of the only things better than that new car smell is a new car deal, and December has quite a few of them. Many dealers are offering new car incentives as a way of drawing vehicle shoppers onto their lots before year’s end.
Here are the top new car incentives for December 2018
Automakers like Ford and General Motors have begun to shed stale models and focus on what people want to buy.
To help move some of the current inventory, dealers are offering some pretty sweet deals — incentives and rebates — on many 2018 models.
Some incentives may vary depending on your city or region of the country, so be sure to confirm with your local dealer. We’ve pulled some of the top discount, lease and rebate incentives from places like Edmunds.com, TrueCar.com and RealCarTips.com.
