Year-End Deal Reality Check: Chrysler Group


(Cars.com)

Chrysler's had a very successful year overall, with sales up 25% through November. Part of that has to do with the automaker's redesigned and refreshed vehicles, and part of it has to do with Chrysler's seemingly eternal and robust incentive spending. The end of the year is no different. Under Chrysler's cross-branded “Big Finish 2011” sales event, there are plenty of attractive financing and cash-back deals to be had.

Starting with the Chrysler brand — which has the most aggressive incentive offers – there are 0% financing deals on the 2012 Chrysler Town & Country and 2012 Chrysler 200 sedan for 60 months and for 60 to 72 months on all 2011 Chrysler brand models. The Town & Country ($1,250), 200 ($2,500), 300 ($1,500) and 200 convertible ($1,000) also have generous cash-back offers.

At Dodge dealers, shoppers will find 0% financing for 72 months or $3,000 cash back on the refreshed 2012 Dodge Avenger. The 2012 Dodge Challenger has $1,500 cash back, and the 2012 Dodge Durango has $1,000 cash back when you finance through Ally Bank.

The only standout Jeep deal is on the soon-to-be-discontinued 2012 Jeep Liberty. The midsize SUV gets 0% financing for 60 months or $3,000 cash back.

The Fiat brand has some attractive lease offerings for its 2012 500. A new “Sign & Drive” promotion offers no money down on a base Fiat 500 and a $199-a-month lease for 42 months and 42,000 miles.

The above offers end in early January.
