October is one of the best months of the year to go shopping for a new vehicle. Not only are the fresh new 2020 cars, trucks, and SUVs reaching dealerships, there’s a solid chance you’ll be able to obtain a terrific bargain on a dealership’s remaining inventories of 2019 models. Time is money in the auto business, and dealer’s loathe to be stuck with what is fast becoming last year’s goods on which they’ll continue to pay financing costs. For their part, automakers are helping sweeten the deals with generous incentives that reportedly averaged $4,100 per vehicle during the third quarter of the year.

You’ll easily find discounted lease deals on most models, and there’s more zero-percent financing offers out there than we’ve seen in some time. Mainstream brands in particular are slapping sizeable wads of cash on the hoods of their outgoing 2019 vehicles, sometimes combined with low-rate financing. We uncovered at least 45 models being offered with cash-back deals of at least $3,000, and we’re featuring 15 that carry above-average rebates of $4,500 or more below. Luxury brands don’t often promote cash-back deals, but rather offer so-called secret rebates to their dealers to be applied as added discounts, so don’t be afraid to haggle with a salesperson. At this time of year you could well obtain a 2019 vehicle for the vehicle’s invoice price (which is a few percent above its actual cost), and perhaps even lower, depending on the circumstances.

Among the more creative cash-back programs currently running, Dodge is giving rebates on the Charger sedan and Challenger coupe based on the specific version’s horsepower rating. It starts out at $2,920 on the 292-horsepower base models and reaches all the way up to $7,070 on the 707-horsepower Hellcats and a whopping $7,970 on the 797-horsepower Challenger Hellcat Redeye models.

Buick is taking varying percentages off the sticker prices of some models, along with cash back purchase allowances on the Enclave, Encore, and Envision crossover SUVs and zero percent financing for 72 months on the LaCrosse, Regal, Regal TourX, and Cascada passenger cars. Chevrolet is likewise offering retail price reductions in addition to cash back rebates on most models. Honda, meanwhile is sticking with cut-rate lease deals, with a 2019 Fit hatchback going for as little as $179 a month for 36 months with $2,199 due at signing.

As always be aware that automakers often tweak their incentive programs by region to address local supply and demand issues. Check a manufacturer’s website under a “special offers” or “local deals” tab to see what’s being offered in your area. Added rebates are often available for special groups, including recent graduates, members of the military, and first responders. Often extra cash is available for current owners or lessees of that brand’s vehicles or those from competitors.

And for better or worse, discounted finance deals are only available to those having prime credit scores; if you’re history is less than pristine you may want to shop around for the lowest rate you can obtain before heading to a dealership.
