TrueSavings September 2 to 15, 2015 — Great Savings for Labor Day WeekendIt’s the end of the summer and Labor Day weekend is here, making this a great time to shop for a new car. To help you in your search, TrueCar, which powers [PROGRAM_FULL_AND_LINK], has selected five vehicles that are likely to be the best deals available over the Labor Day weekend. The deals here could help you save thousands off your next new car, thanks to the car-buying incentives available for new-car shoppers over the holiday and the week beyond.

These five cars offer discounts off Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Pricing (MSRP) as great as 18.9 percent or $6,240. Whether you’re looking for something super roomy, luxurious, or fuel efficient, if you’re planning to go car shopping between September 2 and 15, 2015, keep these five great deals in mind as you do your research.

Because these great deals include an assortment of body styles, the included chart also lists fuel economy figures to help you compare what each vehicle could cost at the pump. The best numbers in this edition come from the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, which offers 36 MPG city and 40 MPG on the highway.

2015_Hyundai_Sonata_HybridThe 2015 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid boasts an eye-catching design and a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine combined with a 35kW electric motor mated to a six-speed automatic transmission to promise 199 net horsepower and fuel efficiency of 36 MPG city/40 MPG highway/38.1 MPG combined. Hyundai’s midsize hybrid sedan offers a potential 18.9 percent discount, which translates to a possible $5,074 savings — bringing the national market average price of Hyundai’s well-equipped hybrid Sonata down from an MSRP of $26,825 down to a very affordable $21,751 — or about $261 per month after a 20 percent down payment.

2015_Ford_F150-TrueCar_pricingCompletely redesigned this year, the all-new 2015 Ford F-150 pickup truck bears a possible savings of $6,240 and a market average of $29,700. That potential 17.4 percent discount off the $35,940 MSRP for XLT trim with Regular cab and standard 6.5-foot bed equals a reasonable $356 monthly payment after 20 percent down. Thanks to its lightweight aluminum-alloy body and 325-horsepower, 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine, this two-wheel-drive truck promises super fuel economy of 18 MPG city, 23 MPG highway, and 20.4 MPG combined.

2015_nissan_pathfinderNow in its fourth generation, the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder sport utility vehicle offers fuel economy of 19 MPG city, 26 MPG highway, and 22.3 combined. With a national market average of $27,842 and a monthly payment of about $333, Nissan’s midsize 4WD Pathfinder offers a potential savings of 13.5 percent — or up to $4,363 — less than the $38,635 MSRP in S trim. Seating seven with a passenger volume of 158 cubic feet and 18 cubic feet behind its third row, or as much as 79.8 behind just two passengers, the Nissan Pathfinder offers functional flexibility for lots of passengers and cargo.

2014_Volkswagen_JettaThe 2015 Volkswagen Jetta offers a potential discount of up to 12.7 percent, which translates into a potential savings of as much as $2,303, bringing the MSRP of the small sedan in S trim with manual transmission from $18,145 down to a wallet-friendly market average price of $15,842. Its estimated monthly payment of $190 makes the Jetta the least expensive vehicle on this list. Under hood, the Jetta combines a 115-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with a five-speed manual transmission to achieve fuel economy ratings of 25 MPG city, 34 MPG highway, and 29.3 MPG combined.

2015_Toyota_CamryThis collection of great Labor Day deals also includes the 2015 Toyota Camry, carrying a national market average price of $23,805 and a monthly payment of about $251. That’s a comfortable 11.9 percent discount, or up to $2,828 off the already affordable $23,805 MSRP for Toyota’s popular sedan in LE trim. Fuel economy is about 25 MPG city, 35 highway, and 29.7 combined. Completely redesigned for 2015, Toyota claims the Camry remains America’s best-selling sedan because it offers customers an ideal combination of spaciousness, value, safety, performance, comfort and reliability in the midsize segment.

It doesn’t matter where you live, these opportunities for savings are available nationwide and demonstrate potential pricing on new cars based on the possible discount from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Remember, each dealer sets their own pricing and deals are limited to inventory on hand; your Certified Dealer must confirm that actual inventory, including your preferred options and colors, is in stock. These deals may feature manufacturer’s rebates and special cash incentives, depending on what our data shows to be the greatest opportunities for savings for new car shoppers in the current two-week time period. Incentive programs are subject to change and should be confirmed with your dealer.

Our last edition of “TrueSavings” shared great opportunities for savings in the month of August. If you had your eye on one of those ten vehicles, keep on looking, as some of those great discounts may still be available in the upcoming weeks at a Certified Dealer near you.
