, Senior Pricing Analyst - April 8, 2018

April is a great time to buy or lease a 2018 Chevy Equinox. If you're coming from a competitor, you may be eligible for a $2,500 bonus that boosts your savings to $3,250. To top it off, all versions are eligible for Supplier Pricing.

Prefer a car? Both the Cruze and Malibu are eligible for 20% off MSRP. The downside is that only LT styles are eligible, and only through April 16. Chevy is offering 0% APR as an alternative, but you'll probably save more money with the discount.

The Colorado is currently one of the cheapest trucks to lease. With a $2,000 bonus for switching brands, you can lease the LT Crew Cab from as little as $199/month. This is one of the best deals we've seen to date on this model.

Offers from Chevy vary by region and end April 30, 2018. Examples listed here are available in California unless noted otherwise.

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.

If you're a recent graduate, don't forget to ask about the GM College Discount. If you qualify, you'll get access to GM Supplier Pricing that can be combined with most advertised incentives for buying or leasing. It's a nice way to get hassle-free pricing if you're interested in avoiding having to haggle on price.
