New car prices are sky-high. With a global chip shortage and production delays, supply is low. But with many people moving and buying new homes, demand is high. Used car prices are rising and new car prices shot up last month. Few times has car buying been more expensive. But Consumer Reports is here to help. The publication compiled a must-see list of all the manufacturers offering incentives on CR recommended vehicles: The Consumer Reports’ new car price guide.
Stellantis is offering up to 7% off MSRP on certain Dodge and Chrysler cars
The Dodge and Chrysler cars offered by Stellantis may be older models. But their drivetrains are time-tested, their Uconnect system cutting edge, and their looks timelessly retro. This is why the Charger, Challenger and 300 are all recommended by Consumer Reports. Best of all, Stellantis is offering significant incentives on all three cars, listed in the new car price guide.
Take for example the 2021 Dodge Charger R/T RWD. Dodge equips this sedan with a 5.7-Liter HEMI V8 that makes 370 horsepower and 395 lb-ft of torque. Normally, its manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) is $39,125. But through the end of November, Dodge is offering this car at 7%+ off its sticker price. That drops its starting price to $36,387 or lower.
Another Dodge deal is on the 2021 Challenger R/T Scat Pack RWD. This trim level comes with the 6.4-Liter HEMI V8. This means this coupe is rated for 485 horsepower and is available with a manual transmission. Its MSRP is $41,775. But for the month of November, Dodge is slicing 7%+ off its price as well. This means it starts at $38,851 or less.
These Dodge muscle cars’ Chrysler cousin is discounted too. The Chrysler 300 S is a full-size luxury car. Normally, it starts at $39,165. But as part of the Stellantis November incentive, you can save 6%+ on its advertised price. This means it begins at $36,816 or less.
General Motors is offering up to 13% off MSRP on certain Cadillacs and Chevrolets
RELATED: What Does SUV Stand For?
Not to be outdone, General Motors is offering some deep discounts on its products. The vehicles that made Consumer Reports’ new car price guide are not only discounted, but they are recommended by the publication.
One such vehicle is the 2022 Cadillac XT5 Luxury AWD compact SUV. This advanced SUV features a 2.0-Liter 4-cylinder and 9-speed automatic transmission. Thanks to its drivetrain, it maintains 27 MPG on the highway, 21 in the city. Normally, it goes for $45,995. But until January 3rd 2022, General Motors is taking 6%+ off that price. That means this Cadillac starts at $43,236 or less through the holidays.
In addition to the Cadillac XT5, General Motors is offering discounts on its Buick Encore and Envision, its GMC Acadia, and its Chevrolet Equinox. General Motors is offering an unprecedented 13% off the Equinox’s MSRP. You can see Consumer Reports’ entire list below.
