Consumer Reports: Some new cars, trucks less than sticker

GM recall vehicles include the Chevy Silverado

Despite extraordinary higher prices and limited supplies of new vehicles, a report recently released by Consumer Reports details several new cars and trucks are available for less than their respective sticker prices.

Three of the most discounted vehicles are pickup trucks from Chevrolet, Ford and Ram.

Some trim levels of the 2022 Ford F-150 are available for less than the sticker price, according to Consumer Reports.

The publication’s analysis states discounted vehicles are “specific trim variations, rather than savings being consistent across a model range.”

According to the report, the discounts are smaller than usual, with the best prices still available via “negotiation and shopping around.”

Consumer Reports notes: “Most months there are a few models that are given an extra push with incentives tied to supply and/or a coming redesign. Automakers and dealerships need to make room for new vehicles. These days, there’s plenty of room, but some models are still more popular than others.”
