Ford has brought back incentives in an important way in October. Previously, the brand's best deals were limited to a trade-in assistance bonus you could only get when trading-in a vehicle. Now, the company is offering bonus cash available to a much wider range of shoppers just in time for the fall sale season.

The Ford F-150 continues to feature one of the best APR deals on a truck with 0% financing for 72 months. Those willing to wait for their vehicle should know Ford is continuing to offer a $1,000 custom order bonus. However, the company expects some orders to be delayed and pushed to the 2022 model year.

Most offers from Ford end on November 1st and can vary by region. Examples listed here are for California.

Must-Know Advice For Ford Buyers

Get a bonus for financing. Cashback incentives and other rebates from Ford tend to be strong. In some cases, you may even be able to take advantage of special discounts for financing through Ford Credit. These so-called "finance bonuses" vary by model but can be worth over $1,000.

Extra savings on the oldest stock. One recent trend has been in the form of a Select Inventory Bonus that offers up to an extra $1,500 off when choosing a vehicle in stock for over 61 days. Many of Ford's advertised incentives include this type of discount for buying & leasing.

Package discounts exist. Expect to see some of the best deals on SUVs like the Ford Explorer and EcoSport. Shoppers should be aware that offers can sometimes reflect special discounts that you can only get with certain equipment packages and options.

Special pricing programs. A lesser-known program is Ford Plan Pricing, which is essentially a pre-negotiated discount through certain companies and organizations that can get you upfront savings on nearly any model. For example, X-Plan offers a Friends & Neighbors discount below invoice price.

Holiday deals. Thinking of buying around a holiday? Ford loves to offer special offers at the last minute to help bring shoppers into showrooms. These holiday deals can offer serious savings in the form of Sign & Drive leases with $0 down, special trade-in assistance offers, and more.

A discount for students. Students and college grads should be aware that the Ford College Student Purchase Program offers up to an extra $500 off most models and is one of the few discounts available to current students rather than just graduates.
