If you’re looking for an excellent new pickup truck, our latest list is a great place to turn. That’s because we’ve listed all of today’s top truck deals and incentives on several of today’s best pickup models, ranging from city-friendly midsize trucks to heavy-duty haulers. We’ve also included a range of offers — like cash back deals, lease specials and low-interest financing rates — in order to make sure there’s something on our list for everyone.

Chevrolet Colorado

Chevrolet Colorado

The Chevrolet Colorado is a midsize pickup that offers more usable dimensions than full-size models like the larger Silverado and GMC Sierra. In December, the Colorado is also offered with strong incentives for shoppers interested in a good deal on a new pickup. The best deal is for qualified shoppers looking to finance a 2016 Colorado, as Chevy is touting 0 percent interest for up to 72 months on remaining 2016 inventory. Drivers who would prefer a 2017 model instead get 3.9 percent interest for up to 60 months. Finally, shoppers interested in leasing a 2017 Colorado can get a 39-month term with payments from $299 per month after $2,199 down at lease signing.

Meanwhile, if you’re looking to pay with cash, you can get up to $3,000 cash back on certain 2016 Silverado models through the end of the year — a deal that maxes out at $1,000 cash back if you choose a 2017 model instead.

  1. Look forward to writings on F150’s compromised V-6 Turbo platform and aluminum body ( primarily the aluminum bed! ) There are simply too many “stories” that are too similar to be simply “rumor” from the competition. Many believe Ford had lost touch with the “buyer” who has kept Ford Truck sales at the top of the heap for decades. However, this “feat” was once an earned phenomenon. With thousands of old 302 blocks and 3:55 gears running to and past hundreds of thousands of miles, the “primary mission” seems to be to make a more expensive truck that does not hold up as well to the “maintenance minded” buyer.
