Toyota is a top seller in three of America's hottest and largest vehicle segments. The RAV4 crossover is always a podium finisher in the monthly sales reports for the largest family vehicle in America. It is often number one. The Camry is a legendary top seller in the sedan segment. And finally, the Toyota Tacoma midsized pickup is the undisputed champion of its vehicle segment. That these vehicles are all top sellers is not news. What is news is that Toyota is offering zero-percent financing for these three hot models.
We found the special Toyota financing deals on the "BuyaToyota.com" website. The site will by default take you to the local offers in your region. Ours is New England. The hot RAV4, Tacoma, and Camry are all offered in this region with 0% APR for 60 months. Like any new car offer, there is some fine print. You need to be a "qualified buyer." Also, not every trim applies. For example, the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro is excluded.
We reached to the East Cost Toyota Communications Manager, Corey Proffitt, to ask about the new incentives. Corey told Torque News, "Toyota’s incentives are tactical, reinforcing the value of our products and keeping our core models competitive in the market, and we’re always evaluating them based on a variety of factors. Given the current market conditions, we have decided to incentivize some of our most popular models. Nationally, we’re offering 0% for 60 months on our core models: RAV4, Camry and Tacoma."
The fine print also has some good news. For example, Toyota Care, the 2-years of included maintenance. This plan covers normal factory scheduled service for 2 years or 25K miles, whichever comes first. Toyota will also defer your first payment for up to 90 days. Also, if you are a recent college graduate, Toyota has even more special offers for some models. These can include a $500 graduate rebate.
You can check out the special offers at the Toyota public website.
Although the circumstances are unusual right now, Toyota is open for business and vehicles are selling in almost all areas in the U.S. and Canada. Be sure you phone your local dealer before heading over to get the scoop on best practices. Note that Torque News received no compensation from Toyota or any dealer for the publication of this story.
