GMC is also offering cash back deals for buyers paying in full, with the automaker advertising up to $1,500 cash back on all variants of the SUV.

The popular Kia Sportage SUV is available with several incentives in October.

Like nearly all Kia models, the Sportage is also available with $500 cash back for buyers trading in a competitive vehicle or an earlier Kia model.
Mazda's large CX-9 crossover has received tremendous praise from automotive journalists, and through the end of October, it's available with several impressive offers for shoppers looking for a brand new SUV that can carry the entire family. The best deal is for customers looking to finance a CX-9, as Mazda is offering zero percent interest for up to 60 months. That deal puts the crossover ahead of rivals from Toyota and Honda, which typically offer such rates for shorter terms. Mazda is also advertising a special lease deal for the CX-9, touting a 36-month lease with payments from $299 after $2,999 at lease signing.
The compact Nissan Rogue is available with several incentives in October, whether shoppers are looking to lease, finance, or buy the SUV outright. For lease customers, Nissan is offering a 39-month term with payments starting at just $249 after $2,999 at lease signing. Cash buyers can take up to $1,500 in rebates--a figure that jumps to $2,500 back when factoring in Nissan's offer of $1,000 off the Rogue's Special Edition package. And for buyers looking to finance the SUV, Nissan is offering interest rates as low as zero percent for up to 36 months, 0.9 percent for 60 months, or 1.9 percent for 72 months plus up to $500 cash back on all variants of the small crossover.
