The 2014 Ford Focus Electric is the battery-powered version of the Blue Oval's popular compact hatchback. There's a bit of a price to pay for going with the Ford Focus Electric's gas-free drivetrain, as total cargo space shrinks by roughly 10 cubic feet due to the presence of the battery pack, leaving a total of 33.9 cubes for toting oversized items.
The 2014 Ford Focus Electric is motivated by an electric motor that produces 143 horsepower. The vehicle takes roughly four hours to fully charge from empty when using a 240-volt home charging station, and it offers 76 miles of driving on a topped-up battery.
There is an incentive of 0.0% financing or $6,000 cash back on the 2014 Ford Focus Electric available until 03/31/2014.
The 2013 GMC Terrain provides compact SUV shoppers with a premium family option that can seat up to five passengers as well as transport 63.7 cubic feet of cargo space. The GMC Terrain Denali - the top-of-the-line luxury model - throws in numerous styling changes as well as lush interior features to further tempt potential buyers.
The 2013 GMC Terrain is initially outfitted with a 182 horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. Also capable of generating 172 lb-ft of torque, this unit returns fuel mileage of 20-mpg city and 29-mpg highway. Stepping up to the Terrain's available 3.6-liter V-6 introduces 301 horses and 272 lb-ft of torque to the mix. Both engines can be paired with optional all-wheel drive, and a six-speed automatic gearbox is standard across the board.
There is an incentive of 0.0% financing or $1,500 cash back on the 2013 GMC Terrain available until 03/31/2014.
The 2014 Chrysler 200 is a mid-size sedan that is on the verge of being replaced with an all-new model. That being said, there's decent value to be had in this comfortable family cruiser for those not interested in driving the latest and greatest.
The 2014 Chrysler 200's entry-level engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that produces 173 horsepower and 166 lb-ft of torque. It's also possible to order the 200 with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 that offers up 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Of the two, the four-cylinder delivers the most impressive fuel mileage, checking in at 20-mpg around town and 31-mpg on the highway. All versions of the Chrysler sedan come with a six-speed automatic transmission.
There is an incentive of 0.0% financing or $3,500 cash back on the 2014 Chrysler 200 available until 03/31/2014.
The 2013 Chevrolet Corvette is one of the most popular sports cars on the market due to its combination of affordable V-8 power with world-class handling and style. The Chevrolet Corvette is available in a startling array of editions, including the track-focused Z06 and the street-oriented Grand Sport.
The base 2013 Chevrolet Corvette features a 6.2-liter V-8 engine that is good for 430 horsepower and 424 lb-ft of torque, managed by either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. 60-mph arrives in a scant 4.5 seconds from behind the wheel of the Corvette coupe, which also turns in 16-mpg in city driving and 26-mpg during highway cruising.
There is an incentive of 0.0% financing or $3,000 cash back on the 2013 Chevrolet Corvette available until 03/31/2014.
The 2014 Nissan Versa Note is an all-new subcompact hatchback that provides exceptional interior room despite its small size. The inexpensive Nissan Versa Note delivers a very useful 38.3 cubic feet of total cargo space with the rear row folded forward.
The 2014 Nissan Versa Note comes exclusively with a 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine. Capable of producing 109 horsepower and 107 lb-ft of torque, this motor can be shifted via a five-speed manual (base trim) or a continuously-variable automatic. The latter makes possible fuel mileage of 31-mpg in stop and go driving and 40-mpg on the highway.
There is an incentive of 0.0% financing plus $500 cash back or $1,000 total cash back on the 2014 Nissan Versa Note available until 03/31/2014.
