It’s almost that time of year again, the festive holiday period that begins with Thanksgiving and extends through New Year’s. It’s also one of the busiest shopping times of the year – and that includes consumers on the lookout for great car deals on Black Friday and Thanksgiving.
So, which car companies are offering what deals this year? Here’s a look at some of the current offerings. Keep in mind that car companies also have regional deals that aren’t necessarily available nationwide. Dealers may also advertise special deals in order to clear inventory on slow-moving or 2013 models, so they can make more room for 2014s.
