Top SUV Deals You Have to See

The rate of SUV sales has continued to increase dramatically over the past few years. This trend is widely expected to continue as some believe that SUVs could make up more than 50 percent of all vehicle purchases within the next few years. In general, people enjoy buying and driving SUVs because they provide drivers with plenty of cargo and cabin space, stylish features, and plenty of safety and tech upgrades.

If you are shopping for an SUV, you may be concerned that they are too expensive. While SUVs tend to cost more than traditional sedans and coupes, there are always great deals that you can take advantage of. In fact, five of the top SUVs on the road today have promotions going on that could save you a lot of money.

2019 Ford Explorer

One of the most popular SUVs of all time is the Ford Explorer.

Starting at an MSRP of $32,365, this SUV can easily cost over $40,000 when you add all of the upgrades. To help with the cost, Ford currently has some great promotions on the Explorer. This includes having the option of either getting 3.9 percent APR financing and $2,500 retail incentive when buying a new SUV. If you choose to lease the Explorer, you can get a lease for as little as $341 per month with $3,687 due at signing.

The 2019 Explorer does not have many major changes from the prior model year. Despite the lack of major changes, one of the strongest selling points of the Explorer is the strong engine performance. The standard V6 engine produces a very impressive 290 horsepower. When switching out the V6 for the stronger engine, you can get about 365 horsepower. With this engine option, your fuel efficiency will decline to about 19 mpg on a blended basis. However, the tradeoff in fuel efficiency will give you better performance and towing capacity.

The Explorer uses the SYNC infotainment interface, which comes with a four-inch touchscreen display, for entertainment and the MyKey system for safety. The safety system includes a rearview camera, lane keep assist and departure warning, and a variety of airbags throughout the Explorer’s cabin.
