If you're looking for a family vehicle that can tackle the winter weather, you may find yourself interested in a new SUV. We can help with that, as we've rounded up some of the top SUV deals on a wide variety of our favorite new models. Best of all, we've included incentives whether shoppers are looking to finance, lease or pay with cash.
The Ford Escape is a compact SUV that offers a lot of technology and recently updated styling. In November, it's a great deal whether you're considering a 2013 model or a 2014. Leftover 2013 models are the best deals, as they're available with interest rates as low as 0 percent for up to 60 months, or 1.9 percent for 72 months. Cash buyers can get up to $2,250 cash back. For those who would rather lease, choosing a 2014 Escape is the way to go: Through the end of the month, Ford is offering payments from $279 per month for 36 months with zero down on the 2014 Escape SE.
The GMC Acadia is a 3-row crossover that shares many mechanical parts with the Buick Enclave and Chevrolet Traverse. In November, it's offered with several strong incentives. The best deals are on 2013 Acadia models, which offer $2,000 cash back and 0 percent interest for up to 60 months. If you'd rather have a 2014 Acadia, you can still get 0 percent interest for up to 60 months, though the SUV's cash-back offer dips to $1,500. Finally, shoppers can lease a 2014 Acadia for 39 months with payments from $299 per month after $2,499 down at lease signing.
The 4-cylinder Honda CR-V is one of the most popular compact SUVs on the market. In November, the CR-V is available with several strong incentives, whether you're considering the 2013 model or the 2014. For finance shoppers, the deal is the same either way: Honda is offering 0.9 percent interest on all 2013 or 2014 CR-V units for up to 60 months. Lease shoppers, however, get a better deal if they choose a 2013 model. A 2013 CR-V is offered with payments from $229 per month for 36 months after $2,199 down, while 2014 models start at $249 per month with the same down payment.
Jeep Grand Cherokee
The midsize Jeep Grand Cherokee is a popular SUV with legendary off-road capability and exceptional on-road manners. In November, Jeep is offering two deals on the 2014 Grand Cherokee. The first is for qualified drivers looking to finance, as Jeep is touting interest rates as low as 0 percent for up to 36 months. Jeep also has a good deal available for those who want to lease. Through the end of the month, drivers who put down $2,499 at signing can get a Grand Cherokee for $339 per month for 39 months. If shoppers are willing to consider a 2013 model, that number drops to $309 with the same down payment.
The Toyota Highlander is a midsize SUV with available 3-row seating. In November, it's offered with two incentives, assuming you're willing to consider a 2013 model. If you are, you can get 0 percent interest for up to 60 months -- a deal Toyota isn't offering on any of its other SUVs. Or drivers can lease a 2013 Highlander, with payments starting from $279 per month for 36 months. However, taking advantage of that deal requires putting down $2,678 at lease signing.
