, Senior Pricing Analyst - July 12, 2017

Special offers from Ford continue to be attractive, but not necessarily when it comes to leasing. That's been the case since Memorial Day, and no single lease has ranked as a top pick. Things are different, however, if you're looking to buy.

With up to $4,500 in cash, the 2017 Focus is the best deal on a small car. You won't find discounts anywhere near that good from a competitor. To save the most money, consider an EcoBoost model since they get a larger rebate.

Many models now feature 0% APR for 72 months plus $1,000 in trade-in assistance. Eligible vehicles include the Fusion, Escape, Explorer and more. If you're willing to give up this month's rebates (and have a vehicle to trade-in), it could be appealing.

Many offers are set to end October 2, but the trade-in assistance bonus ends July 31. Expect to see updated offers in August. Please check back for the latest information.

Tips on Ford Financing and Rebate Offers

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.
