And for drivers who want to lease a Traverse, Chevrolet is offering a 36-month term with payments starting at just $259 after $2,009 at lease signing.
The latest Ford Explorer is available with offers for lease shoppers, finance customers and cash buyers in March. For those looking to lease the SUV, Ford is offering a tempting zero-down deal on a two-wheel drive Explorer XLT with payments from $352 per month for 36 months. Shoppers who would prefer to finance can also get a good deal, as Ford is offering interest rates as low as 0.9 percent for 36 months or 1.9 percent for 48 months, plus up to $500 cash back. For shoppers paying in full, Ford is offering up to $2,000 back on Explorer models through the end of March.
The 2013 Honda CR-V is available with three good deals in March. Two are lease offers. Through the end of the month, shoppers looking to lease a 2013 CR-V LX can get a 36-month term with payments as low as $229 per month. While that figure requires $2,599 at lease signing, shoppers who put nothing down can get the same model for $300 per month. Drivers interested in financing a CR-V in March can also get a good deal on the compact crossover. That's because Honda is offering interest rates as low as 0.9 percent for up to 36 months or 1.9 percent for up to 60 months.
As it's still in high demand, there aren't many manufacturer-backed incentives on the 2013 Hyundai Tucson this month. But it is still available with a low-interest offer and a lease deal. For lease shoppers, Hyundai is offering a tempting zero-down lease on the Tucson for 36 months with payments starting at $309. For qualified shoppers looking to finance a Tucson, Hyundai is touting lease rates of just 2.9 percent for up to 60 months and 3.9 percent for 72 months. And for returning Hyundai owners paying with cash, the automaker is offering $500 cash back on the Tucson through the end of March.
Toyota FJ Cruiser
The 2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser offers bold styling and a powerful 4.0-liter V6. It's also capable of going nearly anywhere thanks to huge tires, a high ground clearance and generous approach and departure angles. In March, it's a good deal for lease shoppers. That's because qualified shoppers can get an FJ Cruiser for 36 months with payments starting at just $369. While that figure requires $2,999 down, it's based on a well-optioned FJ Cruiser with a $34,000 base price - not a low-level base model with few options. That means shoppers might be able to find an even better deal if they're willing to forego some luxury goodies.
The 2013 Toyota Highlander is available with several March offers, whether shoppers are interested leasing, financing or buying outright. For lease shoppers, Toyota is offering the 2013 Highlander for 36 months with payments starting at $269 per month after $2,599 at lease signing. Shoppers looking to finance the midsize Highlander also get a good deal, with interest rates as low as zero percent for 36 months or 0.9 percent for 60 months. For cash buyers, Toyota is offering up to $500 back. While that's not a huge figure like some rivals, it can be tempting when paired with a negotiated price at a local dealership.
