, Senior Pricing Analyst - January 8, 2018

Advertised specials from Chevy have taken a turn for the worse in January. Last month's Employee Pricing on 2017 inventory is over and done, causing lease prices to go up. Offers now start at $179/month on the 2018 Trax.

Chevy is now offering up to $1,000 extra cash on so-called Lead Brand models, which in most cases means extra cash on LT styles. Eligible vehicles include the 2018 Cruze, Malibu, Impala, Equinox and others.

On the flipside, there's an early-month promo involving $2,017 bonus cash on just about every 2017 model. However, the deal is set to end January 15, so there isn't a lot of time left.

Offers from Chevy can vary by region and end January 31, 2018. Promos listed here are available in California unless noted otherwise. Expect some type of major update next month prior to Presidents' Day.

Tips on Chevy Financing, Lease Specials and Rebate Offers

Special offers from Chevy can change quite often and be downright mind-boggling. In the past, some of the automaker's best deals have been so-called Bonus Tag offers worth up to 20% off MSRP on select models. However, the "catch" was that only a certain percentage of inventory was eligible for the discount, in most cases the oldest 10% of stock.

Since then, Chevy has shifted toward so-called Lead Brand offers featuring attractive discounts on the most popular versions of its most popular models. As a result, it has become common to see the best deals on models like the Cruze LT or Equinox LT. Interestingly, base models like the Cruze L and Equinox L boast low prices but are actually excluded from promotions. As a result, they can actually be more expensive than pricier styles.

Looking to buy around a holiday? Chevy reliably offers deals ranging from extra bonus cash to promotions worth up to 20% off MSRP. If you're coming from a competitor (or another GM vehicle), be sure to ask about special incentives worth up to $1,500 called conquest and loyalty discounts. When you stack all available offers, there can be some truly impressive savings to be had.
