Good Deals on Pickup Trucks Worth Big $$

The end of the year is typically a great time to get the best deal on a new pickup truck because dealers are trying to thin their on-hand fleets to make way for new models. What that means for you is a very flexible salesperson and potential incentives from both the dealer and automaker that could reduce your purchase price by thousands of dollars. 

Here are just some of the pickup truck deals we found according to Cars.com (some amounts may vary by region) -- but note that most of the 2011 model incentives only last until the first week of 2012. 

2011_titan II
4. The Nissan Titan is offered with up to $4,250 cash on the hood and zero-percent financing, while the Nissan Frontier offers up to $2,500 in cash and zero to 1.9 percent financing. 

2011 Super Duty II
3. The Ford Super Duty with the 6.2-liter gas V-8 is offering $1,500 in cash incentives and up to $4,000 in a bonus cash and low-interest financing of zero percent plus $2,000 bonus cash. Turbo-diesel models excluded. 

2012_Silverado II
2. The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 are offering $4,505 cash incentive or low-interest financing of zero percent. We should note the Silverado 1500 Hybrid models are excluded. 
2012-Canyon II
1. Both the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon offer up to $3,000 in cash incentives or zero-percent financing. All models are eligible, except for the 5.3-liter V-8-equipped midsize pickups.

@Dav-I have replacement cost coverage on all of my vehicles. It covers write offs, garantee's OEM new replacement parts and covers the glass replacement without a deductible.

@Lou

I have an upgraded insurance package too, but none of the features really helped due to the age of the vehicle when it was totalled.

Maybe there was a more expensive package that would have done more, but I already have 5 vehicles insured and don't want to pay any more than I do. I just decided to not buy another vehicle that loses value like the US credit rating... .

@Dav - I have 5 years of coverage. Then at the 5 year anniversary, I can get more coverage, but at the appraised value of the vehicle at that point in time. It is a secondary insurance plan above my own basic insurance. It was cheeper than an OnStar subscription.
Sorry. I should of been more clear.
Insurance plans may be considerably different south of the 49th parallel ;)
I do agree on the depreciation. When we went to get a new minivan, my wife's Grand Caravan was next to worthless. It was enough to cover a set of winter tires, mounted and ballanced on rims.

Guys, try to ignore the trolls.
I know they are hard to ignore, kinda like trying to ignore raging hemorrhoids while sitting on a cold hard metal seat.
Preperation H like ignoring them doesn't totally get rid of them, but it will make them shrink and be less painful to live with ;)

Frank is the largest hemorrhoid on this blog. Not even a 55 gallon drum of Prep-H would make him more bearable. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone on here.

@Bobby McMichigan - thank you for once again living up to your reputation and once again proving my point.
One should give thanks for your posts on PUTC, it makes us more thankful for a troll free thread.

Tell me about it Lou. Keeping Frank in line is a full time job. Someone has to do it though.

@Bobby McMichigan - good comeback. Funny. Only if you aren't Frank.

@Bobbeh Bobby Michigan, Bob
