, Senior Pricing Analyst - January 9, 2018

Stellar deals continue on remaining 2017 Ford cars & trucks. The Fusion leads the way with an impressive $5,500 discount on select EcoBoost models here in Los Angeles, the most we've seen to date.

Special offers on the popular Explorer have been boosted to as much as $5,300 factory cash when choosing an EcoBoost model. This represents an excellent opportunity to buy.

Last month's holiday promotion of 0% financing for 72 months plus $1,000 cash has ended. However, there's still an opportunity to combine 0% financing with a generous cash bonus when choosing a shorter 60-month loan.

Ford specials vary by region and are set to expire April 2, 2018. However, based on what we typically see, there's a high likelihood that promotions will change in February. Examples listed below are based in Southern California.

Tips on Ford Financing, Lease Specials 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.
