2012 Toyota Avalon
The 2012 Toyota Avalon provides full-size sedan buyers with an ultra-reliable and very roomy family option. The Toyota Avalon is also known for its softly sprung ride and rear seats that recline in order to give adult passengers additional comfort and space.
The 2012 Toyota Avalon features a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that is good for a healthy 268 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is charged with sending that output to the front wheels, and fuel mileage checks in at a very competitive 19-mpg in stop and go driving and 28-mpg on the highway.
There is a financing incentive of 0.0% plus $500 cash back or $1,000 total cash back on the 2012 Toyota Avalon available until 01/07/2013.
2013 Nissan Quest
The 2013 Nissan Quest is a style-forward minivan in a segment where utility often takes precedence over aesthetics. The Nissan Quest can handle as many as seven passengers across three rows, and with the rear accommodations out of the picture it can swallow as much as 108 cubic feet of cargo.
The 2013 Nissan Quest is the only minivan in its class that makes use of a continuously-variable automatic transmission. The unit is yoked to a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that develops 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque, and fuel economy for the vehicle is listed at 19-mpg around town and 25-mpg during highway cruising.
There is a financing incentive of 0.0% or $3,750 cash back on the 2013 Nissan Quest available until 01/31/2013.
2013 Chevrolet Camaro
The 2013 Chevrolet Camaro offers retro-hungry shoppers with a coupe or convertible option that modernizes the 60’s icon looks. The Chevrolet Camaro is available in both an efficient, commuter-friendly base model as well as a high performance SS edition.
The 2013 Chevrolet Camaro starts out with a 3.6-liter V-6 engine under the hood that is rated at 323 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque. Buyers can choose between either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission, and fuel economy comes in at 19-mpg city and 30-mpg highway. The Camaro SS features a 6.2-liter V-8 that grinds out a monstrous 426 ponies and 420 lb-ft of twist. Transmission options remain the same, but fuel mileage drops to 16-mpg in city driving and 24-mpg on the highway.
There is an incentive of $500 cash back on the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro available until 01/31/2013.
2013 Kia Sorento
The 2013 Kia Sorento crams as many features into an affordable mid-size crossover package as it can. The Kia Sorento comes with seven passenger seating, and it can additionally cart around as much as 72.5 cubic feet of gear with the rear rows folded forward, giving it an advantage over several of its similarly-sized competitors.
The 2013 Kia Sorento is initially outfitted with a 175 horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. Also capable of generating 169 lb-ft of torque, this mill returns fuel economy figures of 21-mpg city and 29-mpg highway. A more robust version of this same engine (featuring direct fuel injection) is also available, and it also boasts a slim fuel mileage advantage. Upgrading to the Sorento’s optional 3.5-liter V-6 introduces 276 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque and drops fuel efficiency only a tad to 20-mpg around town and 26-mpg on the highway. All versions of the crossover are shifted via a six-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive is available across the board.
There is a financing incentive of 0.0% plus $1,000 cash back or $1,500 total cash back on the 2013 Kia Sorento available until 02/28/2013.
2013 Buick Enclave
The 2013 Buick Enclave is a full-size crossover that stacks up well when compared against body-on-frame SUVS in the passenger (up to eight) and cargo space (as much as 115 cubic feet). The Buick Enclave is also offered with a full range of luxury features, making it a less expensive option for those seeking a premium family ride.
The 2013 Buick Enclave is exclusively motivated by a 3.6-liter V-6 engine that has been tapped to provide 288 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is included free of charge with the Enclave, and all-wheel drive can be added as an option. Fuel economy for the crossover is listed at 17-mpg city and 24-mpg highway.
There is a financing incentive of 1.9% or $1,000 cash back on the 2013 Buick Enclave available until 02/28/2013.
