Top new car lease, cash, and financing incentives for October 2013

New car incentives 2013

If you're shopping for a new car in October, it's easy to get lost in the sea of incentives offered by manufacturers to entice consumers into choosing their vehicle. That's because to boost sales, many automakers are offering

  • super-low financing rates or
  • giant cash back incentives of thousands of dollars off of a wide range of popular sedans and sport utility vehicles.

Don't forget that if you use Union Plus' Auto Buying service, you'll be entered to win $1,200! Hurry, because this ends December 31st!

If you aren't sure whether you want to lease or buy your next new car, consider this: Car-leasing deals usually offer the new-car shopper a choice between a low down payment and a low monthly payment for a nice short term to help keep out-of-pocket automotive expenses minimal. Vehicle leases make shopping by price point especially simple, by providing an easy and cost-effective way to get into some of the most popular vehicles currently on dealer's lots.

On the other hand, promotional finance deals can take the form of thousands of dollars in cash back (that can help increase your down payment) or APR financing rates as low as 0%. If you're choosing your next new car based on a strategic price point, these incentives can sometimes be the motivating factor in choosing one vehicle over another.

When lease and incentive offers are abundant, how does a savvy new car shopper decide between several vehicles that might have similar monthly costs or lease terms?

If you're not sure whether to buy or lease, consider the following five manufacturer lease, finance, and cash back incentives: perhaps these opportunities for savings will help you decide between a lower monthly lease payment or lower upfront and financing costs to get you into your next new car before winter arrives.

Added bonus: If you're financing your purchase through a credit union or another automotive lending source, you may be able to combine these fabulous cash back offers with promotional incentives being offered by your own automotive lender for additional savings on your new car purchase.

Check out our list of car leasing and buying incentives, picked as the best of the lease, cash and finance offers available on some of the most popular new cars. You can further research your choices using the Union Plus Auto Buying Service.

Top Lease Deals on New Union Cars Cars â€" October 2013


2014 Jeep Wrangler

$349/month for 36 months with $2,499 down 12,000 miles/year

Expires: 11/4/13 

For those who enjoy both off-road capability as well as open-air freedom, the 2014 Jeep Wrangler features an easy-lift removable hardtop option as well as the standard premium material soft top. Removable doors complete the open-air experience, but don't worry if you get it   dirty, as the rugged interior can be hosed out via interior drain plugs. Jeep's legendary four-wheel-drive Wrangler features a standard 285-horsepower/3.6-liter V-6 engine mated to a five-speed automatic transmission and promises 17 mpg city and 21 mpg highway.

Top Cash Deals on New Union Cars â€" October 2013


2013 Chevrolet Volt

$5,000 consumer cash

Expires: 10/31/13

Electric and gasoline engines combine in the Chevrolet Volt to deliver the best of both worlds: It's electric when you want it, gas when you need it. Depending on your daily commute, it could be possible to nearly exchange your monthly fuel bill with the monthly payment on the 2013 Chevrolet Volt thanks to its gas-free driving range of 35 miles; after that, you can still travel up to 375 miles on a tank of gas, so you can still drive as far as you need to go. Pay attention: This $5,000 customer cash incentive is specifically to help clear 2013 model-year Volts off the lots.


2013 Buick Regal

0% financing for 60 months or $3,500 total cash

Expires: 10/31/13

The Buick Regal sedan promises a sporty driving experience that gives premium sedans a run for their money while still achieving an estimated 25 mpg city and 36 mpg on the highway when powered by Buick's eAssist light electrification technology.

Regal shoppers can also opt for more responsive, high-performance driving experience by stepping up to the 220-horsepower/2.0-liter turbocharged Ecotec engine, or go all the way to the GS with its 270-horsepower/2.0-liter high-output turbocharged engine. Choose hybrid or high-performance: all engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, though a six-speed manual is optional with the GS model.


2014 GMC Sierra 1500

2.9% financing for 60 months or $1,000 consumer cash

Expires: 10/31/13

General Motors claims the all-new 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 full-size pickup is the most powerful, most advanced, and most refined truck in the brand's 111-year history. Underhood are a selection of 305-horsepower/4.3-liter V-6, 355-horsepower/5.3-liter V-8, and 420-horsepower/6.2-liter V-8 aluminum EcoTec3 engines mated to six-speed automatic transmissions.

All engines also feature active fuel management, which means they seamlessly switch to run on four cylinders during light-load driving to save fuel. All models feature power-assisted, four-wheel disc ABS with Duralife rotors, and a "cruise grade braking" feature downshifts the transmission on downgrades to reduce brake wear.
