We'll be here until the end of the year to bring you the best rebates and incentives we can find for your next vehicle purchase.
2014 Kia Forte
The 2014 Kia Forte is an affordable compact car that can be ordered in sedan, hatchback, and coupe editions. The Kia Forte has been redesigned for the current model year to add more style and features to its value proposition.
The 2014 Kia Forte starts out with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 148 horsepower and 131 lb-ft of torque, but it can be upgraded to either a 2.0-liter four-cylinder (173 horses, 154 lb-ft of twist) or a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder mill that is exclusive to the coupe. The latter puts out 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. Transmission choices for the car include a six-speed manual and a six-speed automatic, and fuel mileage for the base engine is listed at 25-mpg city and 36-mpg highway.
There is an incentive of 0.0% financing or $1,000 cash back on the 2014 Kia Forte available until 01/06/2014.
2014 Hyundai Sonata
The 2014 Hyundai Sonata is another easy-on-the-eyes Korean entry designed to appeal to buyers who want a lot of equipment for their money. The Hyundai Sonata is generous in terms of interior room, and can be had with a number of comfort features and even sporty trim such as a rear spoiler and dual exhaust.
The 2014 Hyundai Sonata's entry-level 2.4-liter motor can be counted on to produce 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque. More grunt is available via the Sonata's optional 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, which is tuned to provide 274 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. Each engine is shifted via a six-speed automatic transmission, and the base motor squeaks ahead in terms of fuel efficiency with a rating of 24-mpg around town and 35-mpg on the highway.
There is an incentive of 3.9% financing plus $750 cash back on the 2014 Hyundai Sonata available until 01/02/2014.
2013 Chevrolet Impala
The 2013 Chevrolet Impala soldiers on despite the presence of a redesigned 2014 model also available in showrooms. The Chevrolet Impala is a traditional full-size sedan that can be had with six passenger seating thanks to the inclusion of a front bench - an unusual attribute in a modern car.
The 2013 Chevrolet Impala's sole engine option is a 3.6-liter V-6 that delivers 300 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic handles the gear shifting duties for the four-door automobile, and fuel mileage checks in at 18-mpg in stop and go driving and 30-mpg during highway cruising.
There is an incentive of 0.0% financing or $4,000 cash back on the 2013 Chevrolet Impala available until 01/02/2014.
2013 Nissan Murano
The 2013 Nissan Murano might not be new, but it continues to offer families comfortable and practical mid-size crossover capability. The Nissan Murano can seat five passengers, and with the rear row folded forward it can swallow up to 64 cubic feet of cargo.
The 2013 Nissan Murano is motivated by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine mated to a continuously-variable automatic transmission. This unit generates 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque, and while front-wheel drive is standard, all-wheel drive can be ordered as an option. Fuel mileage for the Murano shows as 18-mpg in city driving and 24-mpg on the highway.
There is an incentive of 0.0% financing plus $2,000 cash back or $3,500 total cash back on the 2013 Nissan Murano available until 01/02/2014.
2013 Lincoln MKS
The 2013 Lincoln MKS is a full-size luxury sedan that prizes comfort, a quiet ride, and access to technology above all else. The Lincoln MKS is also relatively unique from a styling perspective, helping it to stand out amongst similarly-priced options.
The 2013 Lincoln MKS starts out with a 3.7-liter V-6 engine under the hood that produces 300 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. Also in the cards is a 3.5-liter turbocharged EcoBoost V-6, which ups the ante to 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard with each version of the car, and all-wheel drive is optional with the naturally-aspirated V-6 and included free of charged with the EcoBoost edition. Fuel efficiency figures for the MKS are listed as 18-mpg city and 27-mpg highway for the base model.
There is an incentive of 0.0% financing plus $2,000 cash back on the 2013 Lincoln MKS available until 01/02/2014.
