The annual Labor Day Finale of Summer Sales Events is starting to heat up.
Incentives trump Inventory!
2016 new cars have been slow to arrive as dealers still have plenty of 2015 popular models to sell through the holiday weekend.
The 2016 Nissan Maxima showed up in July, along with KIA Sorento, Porsche Macan and Dodge 200.
BEST 2015 NEW CAR LABOR DAY SALES
The “BOTTOM LINE SALES EVENT” from Nissan is designed to be a one-price, no hassle sales event to clear the lots.
The 2015 Nissan Sentra and Versa kill it with lease payments starting under $150.00 a month *,
the Rogue under $189.00 on a lease or 0% financing for 60-72 months and rebates total $1000 for the perfect combination of a holiday home-run.
0% is a popular contender in the Dodge, Chrysler and Jeep products.
Jeep Renegade, Chrysler 200 and Dodge Charger offering great rebates and lease programs starting around $249 a month for the Renegade.
Cherokee Trailhawk’s are flying off the lots as 4wd weather gets off-roaders ready for hiking, hunting and snow-bound activities.
HOT LUXURY SEDAN DEALS:
Luxury car shoppers looking for year-end model car deals should trek to Infiniti, Lexus and Acura for the best combination of quality, value retention and lease deals.
Acura RLX sedan, Lexus ES350, Infiniti Q50 are solid lease deals at under $500 a month.
SMALL SUV’s and Crossovers still rock with payments as low as $179!
Look for amazing deals on 2015 Nissan Rogue, Toyota Rav, KIA Soul, Jeep Renegade and Cherokee and Honda CRV.
The Honda is the 2015 Consumer Reports favorite resulting in very limited incentives compared to the others in this flooded category,
however, they all have their great attributes depending on your lifestyle choice.
In the LUXURY SUV category, Check out the RDX and MDX from Acura, although some say the new body of the MDX is too VAN-like, giving Infiniti and Lexus a window of opportunity.
2015 Labor Day TRUCK deals, slim to none.
The one area where inventory is slim and so are the deals, is in the truck arena. Small trucks: Toyota Tacoma, Nissan Frontier, the two most popular models with 80% of new truck sales, have limited inventory across the board. It costs almost as much to build a small truck, as a full size, hence the lack of a Ford Ranger, Dodge Dakota. Auto manufacturers have learned to gauge production to meet demand, on demand. With gas prices down, MPG up, and higher profitability scaled to the full-size trucks, look for deals from DODGE RAM to be the best. The new FORD F150 new aluminum chassis is in high demand, with a high ticket price and almost no incentives.
ALERT: The new 2016 Nissan TITAN is due this fall, as a result you will have a hard time finding any leftover 2015’s. The new Titan diesel is going to rock the 4wd full-size market and give Dodge a run for the money…
