Why Buy a Previous Model Year

There is often a lot of buzz around model year end clearance, and model year car deals, as dealerships give out larger discounts as they clear their lots for next year's model. But is this theory really accurate?

Take a look at the benefits of buying a previous model year, then visit Rick Keffer Dodge to discuss our end of model year car deals!

Leftover Models & When to Buy a Previous Model Year

Leftover models are vehicles that have not yet been sold when the next year's models start arriving on dealer lots.

New model vehicles tend to arrive between August and November of each year, but some arrive much earlier. For this reason, it's important to never assume leftover models are only found towards the end of the year.

If you have a specific car or model in mind, we recommend contacting your local dealership to figure out when they are running their model year end clearance to plan accordingly.

Model Year End Clearance

One obvious reason to consider last year's model is a lower price. Since dealers want last year's cars gone as soon as possible, they will often deeply discount end of model year cars. This way, the dealership can make room for newer cars coming in. For example, if a 2019 model is coming, an automaker may offer zero percent interest to entice buyers to choose a 2018 model before the 2019 version arrives.

Many dealerships, including Rick Keffer Dodge, will run end of model year car deals and model year end clearance, so you drive off in a high-quality vehicle for a really great price.

Enjoy a Higher Trade in Value

Since dealers are eager to clear out their lots, it's likely they'll negotiate more in every aspect of the deal -- including your trade-in! During a model year end clearance event, you may get more money for your trade-in. Combined with a lower price and incentives, this can mean more money in your pocket. Find the value of your trade-in vehicle anytime with Rick Keffer Dodge with our convenient appraisal form.
