As good as the year-end deals can be, the after New Year deals may be even better. It’s actually a great time to shop for a new vehicle. Everybody is typically recovering from the holidays, both physically and financially, and showrooms have a tendency to become ghost towns. Dealers are in a hurry to evacuate old inventory and you have a pretty good chance of squeaking out a decent deal. As such, dealers will drop the prices, throw in some additional perks, and be slightly more flexible with the bottom line. Manufacturers get involved as well, by throwing out some incentives and rebates to help their dealers clear the lots and make way for new inventory. Just in case you were wondering what some of those deals are for January of the new 2011 year, and really why else would you be reading this, here’s what we’ve found.

General Motors
