September is over in just a few short days, but with a number of automakers stretching their rebates and incentives into first part of October you should have at least this weekend to check out a few more great deals on a brand new car or truck.
Our list begins with the 2011 Toyota Tundra CrewMax full-size pickup, which can be had with a zero percent financing plus $500 cash back offer or a total of $2,500 cash back. The 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan minivan follows the Tundra with a zero percent financing offer of its own or the choice of the same $2,500 in factory cash rebates, and the 2011 Nissan Maxima full-size sedan duplicates the Grand Caravan's incentives (0.0% financing or $2,500). The 2011 Lincoln MKX mid-size crossover mixes a 0.0% financing offer with a $500 cash bonus or the choice of $2,000 in total cash back, and the last entry for September - the 2011 GMC Canyon Crew Cab mid-size pickup - combines $1,000 in cash back with zero percent financing and also offers the availability of $2,500 in total cash back.

The 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan is a minivan that offers seven passenger seating as well as a healthy 143.8 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear accommodations stowed.

2011 Nissan Maxima
The 2011 Nissan Maxima is the Japanese brand's full-size sedan flagship, and as such it combines a good degree of luxury alongside the sporty driving flavor associated with most Nissan automobiles. The Nissan Maxima offers a roomy interior that comes standard with a sunroof, dual automatic climate control and power seats, with leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel and a dual pane sunroof all available on higher trim levels.
A 3.5-liter V-6 represents the 2011 Nissan Maxima's sole engine option.

2011 Lincoln MKX
The 2011 Lincoln MKX is a mid-size luxury crossover that is aimed at premium car shoppers seeking additional cargo space (up to 69 cubic feet) to go with a generous passenger compartment and a commanding view of the road thanks to the vehicle's tall ride height. The Lincoln MKX also provides access to a range of intriguing high tech features, including a blind spot warning system, the Sync multimedia and communications interface and the MyLincoln Touch gauge display.
The 2011 Lincoln MKX is motivated by a 305 horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6 engine.

The GMC Canyon Crew Cab also comes with a five-foot cargo box as well as the option of a sport suspension system or an off-road package, allowing buyers to trim out the truck to match the type of driving that they do the most.
The 2011 GMC Canyon Crew Cab starts out with a 2.9-liter, four-cylinder engine under the hood that is rated to put out 185 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy for this motor shows as 18 miles per gallon city and 25 miles per gallon highway. Moving up to the vehicle's 3.7-liter inline five-cylinder engine (242 horsepower and 242 lb-ft of torque) drops fuel economy by one and two miles per gallon, respectively, while the 300 horsepower V-8 engine (also good for 320 lb-ft of torque) offers up 14 miles per gallon around town and 19 miles per gallon on the highway. The Canyon Crew Cab is exclusively offered with a four-speed automatic transmission handling the shifting duties, and four-wheel drive is available as an option.
