Black Friday, the strange and alluring date that compels companies to push certain deals in a bid to firm up the bottom line, doesn’t end when the clock strikes twelve. Nor do the savings only apply to bizarrely non-car-related items that can leave readers of certain websites scratching their heads. Automakers, for example, regularly push Black Friday savings through to the end of the month.

With a handful of days remaining, there’s no shortage of car companies ready and willing to dent your new vehicle’s hood with a bag of cash. So, if you’re in the market, put down that bamboo oil diffuser and let your mind (and wallet) roam. Here’s what might be on offer at your local dealer.

All Chevrolet wants for Christmas, it seems, is its 2017 fleet gone from dealer lots. Especially top-spec trims. The division’s 2017 closeout sale means buyers of many Premier models can receive 20 percent off MSRP, thanks to a combination of purchase cash and an additional price reduction.

That means $7,063 off a Malibu Premier or $5,479 off a top-shelf Cruze. The deal also applies to the 2017 Impala, Trax, Spark, and Sonic. Suburban and Tahoe Premiers see over $7k off MSRP. One Silverado 1500 model sees over $8,000 erased, and a Corvette Z06 purchase could save you over $9k. The Buick Enclave Premium and GMC Sierra 1500 SLT both get in on the 20-percent-off action, for potential savings in the five figures.

The show’s over on November 30th at your GM dealer, at least for this incentive.

Over at Fiat Chrysler, four models — Ram 1500, Dodge Charger, (2018) Jeep Cherokee, and Chrysler Pacifica — could be financed at 0 percent APR over 72 months, with a 90-day payment deferral and $1,000 dealer cash, depending on where you live. However, CarsDirect claims there’s better deals available. In California, for example, one can finance a 2017 Charger for 60 months (at 0 percent APR) with $3,250 cash on the hood. There’s $4,000 in savings to be found for the 2017 Pacifica, 2018 Cherokee, and $6,250 off the Ram 1500.

Like GM, these deals, which (unlike GM) vary wildly, run out on November 30th.

At Ford, the Blue Oval boys are throwing lease cash at the Fusion sedan. In California, there’s $6,700 in savings to be found on certain trims. Hybrid models are especially incentivized — in the Detroit area, for example, lessees can receive $5,375 in customer cash. There’s also large savings lying in wait for buyers of the Escape, Explorer, and Focus.

Honda buyers in certain regions can find a 2017 CR-V offered at 1.99 percent APR for 72 months. Until now, Honda has been loathe to offer anything approaching a deal on its bread-and-butter crossover. The offers runs out on December 19th.

Hyundai definitely isn’t scared of incentives. The company’s pre-existing zero down/0 percent APR/72-month financing offer now shifts over to its 2018 stock, at least for the Elantra and Sonata. There’s up to $3,500 in cash to be found on 2018 Elantras, and a potential for $2,000 in savings for Sonata buyers. Santa Fe Sport and Tucson models also see added incentives. The company’s Black Friday offers ends at the end of the month.

Mazda’s Black Friday bonuses vary depending on region and model. There’s still a factory rebate of $2,500 for the purchase of 2017 Mazda 6 models, and $1,000 off 2017.5 versions (which feature more standard content). The Black Friday bonus adds another $250. Again, depending on where you live, leasing a 2017.5 Mazda 6 Sport (with automatic) might cost you less until the end of the month, and financing a 2017 model could save you $1,000.

Over $2,000 in savings exist for the CX-3 and CX-9, if you’re lucky.

At Nissan, the only Black Friday savings to be found apply to the Rogue Sport and Pathfinder. The offers runs out on November 30th, and are dependent on region. Higher Pathfinder trims could receive savings of up to $4,500.

The big deals at Toyota are found on 2018 Camry leases, which receive either Black Friday bonuses of $750 (ending December 4th) or a holiday bonus of the same amount ending November 30th, depending on which state you call home. The best lease deal concerns Camry SE models in New York, which can be had, all told, for $245 a month. Some states see Black Friday financing offers for Camry and RAV4, with bonuses available on a slew of models.

As this list isn’t exhaustive, it might be worthwhile spending the remainder of your weekend in front of the computer, hunting local deals. Sales sheets are in need of end-of-year padding, so your favorite brand might have a fistfull of dollars waiting for you when you arrive.

    No surprises here in that Toyota is already discounting the new Camry that was supposed to reinvigorate the mid size segment. No way were they going to let Honda take the best selling car title for 2017 so they are stacking them deep and selling them cheap. I do think that if they haven’t pulled ahead by the end of Nov those Camry deals will get even cheaper in Dec.

    The GM deals have been better, at least in my area they had 22% off of “models in stock the longest” several times in the last 6 months.

    TTAC has turned into Jalopnik with all these bullsh!t articles about Black Friday and the crap articles/ads regarding product specials, and even the reviews have SUCKED lately.

    TTAC is trending the wrong way in a big hurry, circling the drain.

    “At Nissan only.. Rogue Sport.. Pathfinder..”

    I guess we can conclude the cashkey isn’t moving as well as hoped and well, the cats-outta-da bag on the repairfinder.

    I don’t know how much inventory is left but I would have put the discontinued Juke a prime candidate.

    Have to agree with DW. These shameless cash grabs are a clear sign of the way this site is headed. It’s no longer part of my daily interweb routine.

    Yep, Squeaky. It obviously comes from the top down. The editorial staff has done all they could to keep the site viable, IMO, but the constant turnover and managerial nonsupport has inevitably taken its toll.

      Is TTAC being paid for its constant BS claim that Volvo is a Swedish automaker? Because everybody knows by now that this isn’t true, and that Volvo is in fact a Chinese automaker, yet the authors on this site insist that it’s Swedish, and they do not change their tune when they’re proven wrong. Which leads me to think that there must be money involved.

        Wut? Why do you have an investment into where an automaker is coming from? How do you even determine that? You say they’re Chinese, so ownership is the thing? Meaning Volvo used to be American since they last were Swedish. I don’t know what their manufacturing staff, mostly in Sweden and Belgium, would say to that. Their management and components used to make the cars go from A to B are as international as any…which leads back to: Why bother?

    Not sure Farago lurks but if he did he would surely be sad to see so much crap advertising that had made its way into “content”. Can he be pursuaded to come back? The site hasn’t been the same since he left.

      No, I want Bertel to come back. I want to remind him repeatedly that his beloved Japanese car companies were the first to import Chinese built vehicles to North America. Or that Volvo beat GM to be the first to import Chinese vehicles to the US.

      Farago had his moments, but Bertel and his Japanese bondage porn (hentai) is the one that really sticks in my mind. Other than Ed Niedermeyer, who ripped my head off (figuratively), but that’s another matter.

    I know why we’re all griping about the way this is written but holy heck let’s look at some of the content in there.

    20% off end of year sales at GM – pretty much standard operating procedure although I know the net is cast more widely than last year as far as the models included. Also seems like a bad sign when your highest trim models have the highest discounts.

    Hyundai having 0%/72 months on certain 2018s doesn’t seem like a good sign for them either.

    Just reinforces how ridiculous some of these MSRPs are.

    I’ve been doing a lot of shopping lately and in my experience, a mfr lease deal is almost always awful. The dealers’ own offerings are almost always much better.
