Wrapping up the Ford rebates report for February, we take a look at all the new cars for sale Ford has stuck discount stickers on. Unlike Ford trucks and many other automakers however Ford 0 percent financing is alive and well for many 2012 models, especially compared to the somewhat baffling amount of discounts on Ford 2011 cars. To demonstrate the point, let's look at them both model year to model year.
Ford Rebates and Incentives 2012
All the big Ford rebates and incentives are on the new 2012 Ford vehicles including one of the top cars under 20000, the Ford Fusion. While lacking much of the big sticker values we previewed in the Ford truck incentives article, there are still plenty of deals to go around and even more Ford 0 percent financing offers to take advantage of and even some Ford Mustang rebates and incentives to peek at. Below is a list of the incentives on Ford cars and hatchback models for 2012.
2012 Ford Mustang - $1500 Cash rebates - 0% financing
2012 Ford Fusion - $2500 Cash rebates - 0% financing
2012 Ford Taurus - $2500 Cash rebates - 0% financing
2012 Ford Fiesta - $500 - 1.9% financing
The areas to highlight include not much in the way of rebates on 2012 cars under 15000 and the only hatchback of the group the Fiesta. The lack of affordably priced options is a shame, because with a starting price of $14,100 the Fiesta is the only car under 15000. Most of better rebates, especially the 0% financing offers are on top cars under 20000 and 25000 such as the Ford Fusion and Ford Taurus. Of course if low financing isn't your thing both cars also come with the option of $2500 in cash back rebates.
Given all the large incentives on Ford trucks, you might be hoping there are some nice deals on commercial vans such as the Ford Econoline Wagon or Ford Transit Connect. Well Ford rebates haven't entirely forgotten about you, you might forget your excitement. Rebates for February are only $1000 off the Econoline and half that for the Transit Connect. Financing is even less attractive, with only 2.9% for the full size Econoline van and only 4.9% financing Transit.
Ford Rebates and Incentives 2011
Surprisingly incentives on 2011 new cars for sale are much much thinner. On the car side of things you really only have a choice of the Ford Taurus or the Ford Taurus. However if you don't have a problem with this choice the available $3000 in rebates is bigger then anything you'll see that's not a truck or SUV on the Ford side of the isle. On the van side of things, there's a nice little kickup in discounts on the Econoline van but no change for the Transit.
2011 Ford Taurus - $3000 Cash rebates - 0% financing
Unfortunately time has nearly run out on all these specials. You might be able to squeeze some extra coin from the dealerships pocket as they attempt to discount the older models but you only have until the end of February to do it so don't wait if you intend to cash in.
