The middle of March brings healthy rebates and incentives to the table designed to tempt buyers seeking a new car or a new truck. Our list kicks off with the 2013 Ford Expedition full-size SUV and its offer of zero percent financing or $3,000 cash back, followed by the 2013 Chevrolet Volt extended-range hybrid and its 0.0% financing plus $2,000 factory cash. The 2013 Chrysler 200 mid-size sedan, like the Expedition, provides the option of either 0.0% financing or $3,000, while the Jeep Liberty compact SUV also offers identical incentives (zero percent financing or $3,000 cash back). The final vehicle for this week is the 2013 Nissan Sentra compact sedan, which can be had with zero percent purchase financing or an available $1,000 in cash rebates.
As temperatures start to thaw, the reins will loosen on the rebates being offered across the entire industry. Check back with us next week for more bargains and deals on brand new vehicles.
2013 Ford Expedition
The 2013 Ford Expedition provides traditional full-size SUV buyers with a familiar platform that is as useful as it is large. Found in both regular and extended-wheelbase editions, the Ford Expedition can haul up to seven passengers and carry as much as 130.8 cubic feet of cargo.
The 2013 Ford Expedition is motivated exclusively by a 5.4-liter, eight-cylinder engine that puts out 310 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque. Combined with a six-speed automatic transmission, this is enough to give the Expedition a tow rating of 9,200 lbs. Four-wheel drive is available as an option with the SUV, and fuel economy is listed at 14-mpg city and 20-mpg highway.
There is a financing incentive of 0.0% or $3,000 cash back on the 2013 Ford Expedition available until 04/01/2013.
2013 Chevrolet Volt
The 2013 Chevrolet Volt is an extended-range hybrid hatchback sedan that doesn't just save on gas - it actually runs and drives very much like a traditional automobile. Yes, it's quieter than one would expect, but it offers good passenger room for up to four adults, and it also features a solid ride and commendable handling.
The 2013 Chevrolet Volt can travel for up to 40 miles on battery power alone, at which point its four-cylinder gasoline engine kicks in to offer enough electricity for another 300 miles of driving. The Volt's electric motor is rated at 149 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, and this output is shuttled to the front wheels where it offers enough grunt to sprint to 60-mph in roughly nine seconds.
There is a financing incentive of 0.0% plus $2,000 cash back on the 2013 Chevrolet Volt available until 04/30/2013.
2013 Chrysler 200
The 2013 Chrysler 200 is a mid-size sedan designed to appeal to those seeking a comfortable commuter car or a family vehicle not quite as large as an SUV. The Chrysler 200 can also be had with a decent amount of upscale equipment, as the brand attempts to court drivers with premium features at a reasonable price.
The 2013 Chrysler 200 starts out with a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine can be linked to either a four-speed automatic (base models) or a six-speed automatic transmission (LX and higher). Fuel mileage for the unit shows as 20-mpg city and 31-mpg highway, and power checks in at 173 horses and 166 lb-ft of torque. Opting for the 200's available 3.6-liter V-6 introduces 283 ponies and 260 lb-ft of torque, makes the six-speed autobox standard, and drops fuel economy by on a few miles per gallon for each respective measure.
There is a financing incentive of 0.0% or $3,000 cash back on the 2013 Chrysler 200 available until 04/01/2013.
2012 Jeep Liberty
The 2012 Jeep Liberty is about to be replaced by an all-new model, which means that there are abundant deals to be had on the small SUV. The Jeep Liberty can seat five passengers, and with the rear row of accommodations folded forward it can swallow up to 64 cubic feet of gear.
The 2012 Jeep Liberty features a 3.7-liter V-6 engine under its hood, and this unit is tuned to provide 210 horsepower and 235 lb-ft of torque. A four-speed automatic transmission is provided free of charge with the Liberty, and rear-wheel drive editions of the SUV turn in fuel mileage of 16-mpg around town and 22-mpg on the highway. Four-wheel drive can also be ordered with the Jeep.
There is a financing incentive of 0.0% or $3,000 cash back on the 2013 Jeep Liberty available until 04/01/2013.
2013 Nissan Sentra - 0.0% or $1,000 - 04/01/2013
The 2013 Nissan Sentra is a fresh take on the brand's entry-level compact sedan. What's most impressive about the new Nissan Sentra is its cavernous passenger compartment, which provides rear seat riders with an exceptional amount of leg and headroom.
The 2013 Nissan Sentra has been outfitted with a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine that puts out 130 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to a continuously-variable automatic transmission this motor provides 30-mpg in city driving and 40-mpg on the highway. A six-speed is also available for those who wish to shift gears themselves.
There is a financing incentive of 0.0% or $1,000 cash back on the 2013 Nissan Sentra available until 04/01/2013.
