, Senior Pricing Analyst - March 10, 2017

Offers from Ford continue to feature a generous selection of cashback, finance and lease incentives. If you can still find 2016 stock at dealers, the best deals right now are on the fuel-efficient Fiesta and Focus with 0% APR for 72 months plus $1,500 cashback. In the case of the Focus, you can opt to forgo promotional rates in favor of as much as $3,000 cash.

Once again, the popular 2017 Escape crossover ranks as a great deal with up to $3,500 cash when you finance through Ford Credit. You won't find a deal that good on most competitors this month. Leasing is also attractive with deals starting at just $229/month.

The larger 2017 Explorer continues to be a great deal with 0% APR for 72 months plus $2,000 cash. That's considerably better than anything you'll see being advertised on vehicles like the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander.

Offers are set to end April 3, 2017. We may see additional offers ahead of St. Patrick's Day.

Inside Tips for Ford Shoppers

Automakers often make you choose between taking cashback and finance offers, but Ford is more flexible than most. To maximize your savings, consider stacking cashback with bonuses for financing at standard rates. If you're leasing a competitor, you may qualify for an extra "conquest bonus" as well.

A lesser-known program worth knowing about is Ford Plan Pricing, or pre-negotiated vehicle pricing through certain companies and organizations. You'll benefit from upfront discounts on nearly any model, while still being eligible for most cashback offers.

Thinking of buying around a major holiday? Ford loves to offer special promotions at the last minute to help draw-in shoppers. Deals generally range from an extra $500-$1,000, and may involve extra bonus cash or incentives for trading in your current vehicle. In California, we almost always see a $1,000 trade-in assistance deal get added right before major holidays.
