If you're interested in buying a new pickup this month, you'll find that many automakers are offering incentives and deals on nearly every model. We've rounded up some of the best truck deals below, giving you a leg up in March as you set out in search of the new pickup that's right for you.
Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD
Shoppers looking for a heavy-duty truck will find a good deal on Chevrolet's Silverado 2500 HD in March. Those looking to finance the truck get the best deal, as Chevrolet is offering qualified buyers zero percent interest for up to 72 months. For buyers paying with cash, Chevrolet also has a deal available: $3,000 cash back on any 2013 Silverado 2500 HD model. An even better deal is available for shoppers who would consider a 2012 Silverado 2500 HD. While Chevrolet's interest rate offer remains the same on last year's truck, the brand is advertising a cash back deal of up to $4,000 for a 2012 model.
This month, Ford is offering deals on its 2013 F-150 pickup for shoppers looking to finance or pay with cash. For those looking to pay in full, Ford is offering up to $3,500 cash back. That figure rises to $4,500 for shoppers who end their lease on a competitor to get an F-150. Ford is also offering deals for drivers looking to finance their F-150. Such shoppers can get interest rates as low as 0.9 percent for 36 months, or 1.9 percent for 48 months. Best of all, that offer is coupled with an impressive $1,500 cash back.
Like fellow GM brand Chevrolet, GMC is doing its part to clear out remaining 2013 Sierra models before an all-new version arrives later this year. Deals are available on the full-size Sierra whether shoppers are interested in financing or buying outright. For buyers looking to finance a Sierra 1500, GMC is offering interest rates as low as zero percent for up to 60 months. That offer increases to 72 months for leftover 2012 models. For those who will pay cash for their next truck, GMC is touting up to $3,000 cash back for 2013 Sierra extended cab and crew cab models, or $2,500 for regular cabs. The 2012 Sierra, meanwhile, is available with up to $3,500 back on regular cab models or a tremendous $6,000 back for extended cab and crew cab body styles.
Nissan's midsize Frontier pickup is available with lease, finance and cash back deals in March. For shoppers interested in leasing their next truck, Nissan is offering a 39-month term with payments from $229 after $2,999 at lease signing. For those looking to buy the pickup with cash, Nissan is touting cash back deals of up to $2,500. And for shoppers interested in financing a Frontier, Nissan says customers who qualify can get zero percent interest for up to 60 months plus $500 cash back.
The full-size Nissan Titan offers several great deals in March. For shoppers interested in financing the truck, Nissan is offering interest rates as low as zero percent for up to 60 months, or 1.9 percent for 72 months. Lease shoppers also get a deal, as Nissan is offering the 2012 Titan SV four-wheel drive with a 39-month lease for $499 per month after $2,999 down. For cash buyers, there's also an enticing incentive. Nissan says buyers paying in full can get a 2012 Titan with up to $5,850 cash back in March. Two more incentives are offered on packages. One deal, on the Heavy Metal Package, gives buyers $1,500 back, while a deal on the SV Value Truck Package offers $1,350 back.
Chrysler's Ram truck brand is offering several deals on the Ram 1500 in March. For most models, Ram is offering zero percent interest for up to 60 months. That figure expands to zero percent for 72 months on some of the Ram's upscale trim levels, like Laramie and Big Horn. For shoppers who would rather pay with cash, Chrysler is offering $3,000 back on most base-level Ram models, as well as up to $3,500 back on upscale Laramie and Big Horn trims.
Toyota is only offering one special on its Tacoma in March: a lease deal. Shoppers interested in leasing a 2013 Tacoma Access Cab can do so for 36 months with payments of just $229 per month after just $2,999 at lease signing. That's a good offer considering it's based on an MSRP of $29,085, which allows for several options. That means it's not just a special offer that will be hard to find at a dealer, but a deal that's actually available to many shoppers.
Toyota's full-size Tundra pickup is available with several special offers in March. For shoppers looking to finance a new Tundra, the best offer touts zero percent interest for up to 60 months plus $1,000 cash back. Drivers who would rather purchase a new Tundra with cash can get up to $2,500 cash back. And for those looking to lease a full-size Tundra, Toyota is offering 2013 Double Cab and Regular Cab models with 36-month lease terms starting at just $299 per month. While that deal requires $2,999 at lease signing, it's based on a well-equipped Tundra starting at $33,420.
