Ring in the new year with a new work truck. Model year 2018 and 2019 trucks are still on dealer lots as automakers ready to debut redesigned 2020 models like the Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty, GMC Sierra Heavy Duty and Ram’s heavy-duty trucks. Chevrolet has already shown its 2020 Silverado HD.
Trucks.com compiled a list of deals that represent the best value for consumers. Incentives vary by region, so always check with a local dealership. And don’t be afraid to negotiate.
All the deals in this article are valid through at least Jan. 31, although some may be extended.
Purchase deal: 4.9% financing for 60 months plus $500 bonus cash
The Ford Super Duty is commonly seen on worksites, and for good reason. When equipped with the 6.2-liter V8 gasoline engine, it delivers more torque, 430 pound-feet, than its competitors’ gas engines. The Super Duty also can come equipped with a 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel V8 engine, which achieves best-in-class 450 horsepower and 935 pound-feet of torque.
Adaptive cruise control is available in the Super Duty, something not even all light-duty trucks offer. Three levels of exhaust braking are available in diesel-powered Super Duty trucks. Buyers who opt for the 6.2-liter V8 can purchase the CNG/Propane Gaseous Engine Prep Package, which gives the Super Duty bi-fuel capability.
This deal is not available on the F-650 nor the F-750 and expires April 1.
Purchase deal: $2,500 purchase allowance
