Dealers offering year-end discounts on 2012 models
Autoweek's picks on Chrysler, Hyundai, Jeep and Lincoln models.
Dealerships are working to get rid of the remaining 2012 models as the year comes to an end, so there are plenty of incentives on 2012 cars, pickups and SUVs.
Here are our picks for the best deals:
Chrysler is offering up to $5,500 cash back to buyers of select 2012 Chrysler 300 models. The most steeply discounted models include both the rear-wheel and all-wheel-drive versions of the 300C, 300C Luxury Series and 300S V8, as well as the 300S Mopar 12 rear-wheel-drive model. Buyers of these models can also opt for the 0 percent financing deal for up to 60 months, plus $1,500 cash allowance. Other models of the Chrysler 300 have a $3,000 rebate or 0 percent financing for 60 months.
Hyundai is offering up to $2,500 cash rebates for buyers of the 2012 Hyundai Veracruz, which is being replaced by a version of the redesigned Santa Fe. All buyers automatically qualify for $1,000 bonus cash. Hyundai owners as well as owners of competing models can get an additional $1,500 cash. Cash rebate offers apply to all buyers, including those who opt for the cut-rate financing. Finance deals include 0 percent for 36 months, 0.9 percent for 48 months, 1.9 percent for 60 months and 2.9 percent for 72 months.
