The end of the year is approaching, which means that more rebates and incentives are sprouting up to get 2012 models out the door in order to make more room for 2013 editions. Of course, there are also a number of excellent deals available on 2013 vehicles as well, making this a prime shopping time for new vehicle buyers. This week, we kick off our rebates roundup with the 2013 Ford Expedition full-size SUV, which features the choice between zero percent financing or $2,000 cash back. Next up is the 2012 GMC Terrain compact crossover and its offer of 0.0% purchase financing or $1,000 cash back, followed by the 2012 Hyundai Elantra Touring compact wagon and its available zero percent financing plus $500 factory cash back. The 2013 Toyota Venza mid-size crossover lets buyers choose between zero percent financing plus $500 cash back or a total of $750 in cash back, while the last vehicle on our list, the 2012 Kia Sedona minivan, comes through with 1.9% financing or $2,500 cash back.
November is far from over, so stayed tuned as we come back next week with another look at the best deals available on brand new vehicles.
2013 Ford Expedition
The 2013 Ford Expedition is a full-size sport-utility vehicle that offers an incredibly spacious interior that can be used to transport up to eight passengers or haul 130.8 cubic feet of cargo (when ordered in long-wheelbase trim). The Ford Expedition is also a capable tow rig, checking in with a trailer rating of 9,200 lbs.
The 2013 Ford Expedition is motivated by a 5.4-liter V-8 engine that provides 310 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque. Fuel mileage for the Expedition, which also comes with a six-speed automatic transmission, shows as 14-mpg in stop and go driving and 20-mpg on the highway. Four-wheel drive can be ordered with the SUV as an option.
There is a financing incentive of 0.0% or $2,000 cash back on the 2013 Ford Expedition available until 01/02/2013.
2012 GMC Terrain
The 2012 GMC Terrain is a premium compact crossover that delivers better-than-average comfort and passenger room. The GMC Terrain is designed to seat five, but it can also swallow 63.7 cubic feet of gear with the rear row folded forward, making it a practical family ride.
The 2012 GMC Terrain offers a choice of either four-cylinder or V-6 power. The former is represented by a 2.4-liter unit that delivers 182 horses and 172 lb-ft of torque, while the larger six-cylinder mill has been tuned to provide 264 ponies and 222 lb-ft of twist. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard with both, and all-wheel drive can be had with either engine. Fuel mileage for the four-cylinder is the most respectable of the two mills, and it is listed at 22-mpg in city driving and 32-mpg on the highway.
There is a financing incentive of 0.0% or $1,000 cash back on the 2012 GMC Terrain available until 01/02/2013.
2012 Hyundai Elantra Touring
The 2012 Hyundai Elantra Touring is one of the few compact wagons remaining on the market. 2012 marks its final year of production, but the Hyundai Elantra Touring still has a lot to offer bargain-conscious families not interested in driving an SUV - especially with its crossover-challenging 65 cubic feet of total cargo space.
The 2012 Hyundai Elantra Touring doesn't just handle better than a sport-utility vehicle, but it also consumes less gasoline. The Elantra Touring's standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine generates 138 horsepower and 136 lb-ft of torque while turning in fuel economy figures of 23-mpg around town and 31-mpg during highway cruising. Buyers can choose between either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic transmission.
There is a financing incentive of 0.0% plus $500 cash back on the 2012 Hyundai Elantra Touring available until 11/30/2012.
2013 Toyota Venza
The 2013 Toyota Venza is a modern take on the crossover wagon concept, an SUV that leans more towards the sedan side of the equation in order to maximize comfort while still offering respectable cargo and passenger room. The Toyota Venza provides seating for five along with 70 cubic feet of storage space with the rear rows out of the picture, and it also features a few styling changes to help refresh the 2013 model's appearance.
The 2013 Toyota Venza starts out with a 2.7-liter, four-cylinder engine under the hood. Capable of putting out 181 horsepower and 182 lb-ft of torque, this motor is matched with a six-speed automatic transmission and provides fuel mileage of 20-mpg city and 26-mpg highway. Upgrading to the available 3.5-liter V-6 introduces 268 horsepower and 246 lb-ft of torque while dropping efficiency by only one mile per gallon in the city. A six-speed automatic also comes with the V-6, and all-wheel drive can be had with either Venza drivetrain.
There is a financing incentive of 0.0% plus $500 cash back or $750 total cash back on the 2013 Toyota Venza available until 12/03/2012.
2012 Kia Sedona
The 2012 Kia Sedona is a minivan that is aimed at families looking to stretch their budget but not willing to compromise on features. Seven passenger seating and 142 cubic feet of interior storage space are hallmarks of the Kia Sedona, and the van also comes with power windows and door locks, Bluetooth connectivity, and rear air conditioning.
The 2012 Kia Sedona is offered with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that is good for 271 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic gearbox sends that output to the front wheels, and fuel economy for the minivan comes in at 18-mpg in city driving and 25-mpg on the highway.
There is a financing incentive of 1.9% plus $2,500 cash back on the 2012 Kia Sedona available until 01/02/2013.
