Here’s the description of the Ford F-150

MSRP: $23,035
Price after incentives: $18,039
Like the Sierra, the F-150 doesn’t need a whole lot of incentives to move, but a 22 percent discount helps dealers clear lot space in a hurry. Last month alone, Ford sold more than 47,000 of its F-series pickups, a 40 percent increase from the year before.

“With the F150 and similar vehicles like the GMC Sierra 1500, it’s a very competitive market, and automakers actually built a bit of incentive and discounting into the sticker price,” said Jesse Toprak, an analyst for TruCar.co.

“Also, there has been some weakness in the large truck sector due to weakness in the economy and the fact that these vehicles are tied directly into construction and small businesses.”

Here’s the full list, in alphabetical order, of 10 cars from 2010 worth buying now.

BMW 3 Series
Chevrolet Cobalt
Dodge Dakota
Ford F-150
GMC Sierra 1500
Kia Optima
Lincoln MKX
Mitsubishi Endeavor
Nissan Altima Hybrid
