Van and Minivan Deals: April 2013
If you're searching for a new minivan in April, you've come to the right place. We've listed several of today's top van and minivan deals on some of our favorite new models. And most automakers are offering incentives this month for shoppers looking buy, lease or finance a new van.
Chrysler Town & Country
The 2013 Chrysler Town & Country minivan boasts a standard rear-seat DVD player, a power rear lift gate and power sliding doors. Through the end of April, it's also available with several good incentives from Chrysler. For buyers paying in full, one deal offers up to $2,500 cash back on the Town & Country Limited or $2,000 back on the Town & Country Touring. Shoppers looking to finance can get zero percent interest for up to 60 months. And for those who want to lease their next minivan, Chrysler is offering payments starting at $289 per month for 36 months. The only drawback to that rate is a relatively high $2,999 down payment. Finance shoppers also get a good deal, with Chrysler offering zero percent interest for up to 60 months plus up to $1,000 cash back.
Dodge Grand Caravan
The 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan is mechanically similar to the Chrysler Town & Country. It's available in April with lease and finance deals, along with a cash-back offer. For lease shoppers, Dodge is offering a 36-month deal on the Grand Caravan with payments starting from $299. That figure is available after $2,999 down at lease signing. Buyers looking to finance the Grand Caravan also get a manufacturer incentive, as the Grand Caravan is available in April with zero percent interest for up to 60 months plus up to $500 cash back. Finally, for buyers paying in full, the Grand Caravan is offered with $2,000 cash back on R/T, SXT and Crew models, or $1,000 back on the base-level American Value Package trim.
The Ford E-Series is a full-size van offered in passenger or cargo configurations. Commercial shoppers interested in the cargo van get the best deals in April. Buyers willing to consider a 2012 E-Series cargo van can get interest rates as low as zero percent for up to 60 months. For those paying cash, Ford is offering up to $2,500 back -- a deal that also applies to the E-Series Wagon, which includes rear seats. For the cargo model, Ford is also touting an April offer that promises up to $1,200 in "upfit cash." That means buyers who choose an E-Series this month can get $1,200 to add interior and exterior accessories necessary for their business.
The 2013 Honda Odyssey is among the most popular minivans on the market. It's available with three incentives in April. Two are for shoppers looking to lease their next minivan. The first deal is for lease shoppers looking for a low monthly payment. The offer requires $1,999 down for an Odyssey LX but touts a 36-month term with payments as low as $259 per month. For shoppers who would rather put nothing down, the 2013 Odyssey LX is also available with a zero-down lease deal. Through the end of April, that deal includes nothing down and payments starting at $310 per month for 35 months. Meanwhile, qualified buyers looking to finance their next van can get interest rates as low as 0.9 percent for up to 60 months.
The 2013 Nissan Quest is recently redesigned, offering a new style and more features. In April, it's available with lease deals, cash offers and low-interest financing. The best offer is for buyers paying in full. For those shoppers, Nissan is offering the Quest with a whopping $3,500 cash back through the end of the month -- the top cash-back deal among minivans. For buyers looking to finance, Nissan also has a great deal available this month. The automaker is offering zero percent interest for up to 36 months on all 2013 Quest models plus an extra $500 cash back. Lease shoppers also can get a deal in April, as Nissan is offering a 39-month lease on the Quest with payments starting at $259 per month after $2,999 down at lease signing.
The 2013 Toyota Sienna is a highly popular, highly versatile minivan. Two offers are available on the Sienna this month. The best deal is for buyers looking to finance the van, as Toyota is offering zero percent interest to qualified shoppers. It gets better: That deal is available for up to 60 months, which trumps nearly all rivals. A 39-month lease deal is also available this month on the Sienna. That offer requires $2,668 down at signing, but it includes payments as low as $269 per month on the mid-level Sienna LE.
