Best Memorial Day Car Deals – Summer is the busiest sales season at car dealers. The weather is great, people have more time to shop, and the discounts are interesting enough to get buyers’ attention. Dealers also make full use of summer holidays on weekends, starting with Memorial Day. Get ready for many balloon-deked, inflatable hawks and scads car ads.
While Memorial Day is still far from the top of weekend deals, the benefits of shopping now are wider car choices and a better chance of finding a vehicle with the choice you want in the color you want. Cheap hunters who wait until the end of the year must be satisfied with any vehicle owned by the dealer.
For buyers who want variety and offerings when shopping around Memorial Day, Edmunds auto website has selected a variety of vehicles – including SUVs, trucks, and sedans – that currently have significant discounts. The average savings shown are based on discounts from vehicles registered by dealers in Edmunds. Some discounts come from cash dealers and manufacturer incentives.
These incentives are available, so you can start shopping early to avoid the Memorial Day weekend crowd at the dealer. Make sure you get some dealer price quotes to help in negotiations and determine a more aggressive dealer at a discount. And always check the fine print on each Memorial Day offering you find, paying attention to the expiration date and financing restrictions.

MSRP average: $ 38,611. Average discount: $ 5,710.
Chrysler 300 is a large sedan, quiet enough to cover the noise and bumpy roads along the daily journey but still daring in terms of look and rumble of V8 engines are available. Edmunds editors also love the features of modern technology 300, including an infotainment system that ranks as one of our favorites with a large touch-screen interface, a variety of features, and quick response.
2018 Ford F-150
Average MSRP: $ 49,294. Average discount: $ 7.064.
The Ford F-150 truck offers the perfect blend of comfort, utility, and resale value. The best-selling trucks in America offer a choice of several engines, but one stands out: the 3.5-liter V6 is rated as either 375 horsepower or 450 horsepower in a high output configuration. Paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, it’s an excellent combination of power and fuel efficiency.
2018 GMC Acadia
Average MSRP: $ 43,712. Average discount: $ 5,603.
Acadia 2018 was completely redesigned last year, which makes it smaller and lighter than the previous model. Handling and fuel economy increases at the expense of passenger and cargo space, but you will have difficulty paying attention unless you are in the third row. Whatever you choose, our editor recommends the V6 model. You will appreciate its superior performance when you carry passengers or cranes.
2018 Infiniti Q50
MSRP average: $ 45,963. Average discount: $ 4,742.
Edmunds editor said that 2018 Infiniti Q50 was not sufficiently polished as some rival sedans, but it was a desirable and stylish alternative to the status quo. Q50 with 3.0t engine specifically provides strong performance and is equipped with many standard features at a reasonable price. Choosing between Sport or Luxe trim levels depends on your driving style and your taste for better features. The Luxe, for example, comes with an interior accent of sunroof and maple wood.
2018 Cherokee Jeep
MSRP average: $ 31,309. Average discount: $ 5,859.
The Jeep Cherokee 2018 stands out from its competitors thanks to its superb off-road capabilities. If your budget allows, our editor recommends Trailhawk trim levels. Its exclusive features take advantage of Cherokee’s off-road capabilities, and that’s the main reason for buying Cherokee rather than other crossover. Otherwise, Limited Plus offers a good set of features for a fair price.

2018 Ram 1500
MSRP average: $ 45,726. Average discount: $ 7,107.
The Ram 1500 truck is being redesigned for the 2019 model, but there is still much to be liked about the 2018 model. Edmunds editor praises the Ram 1500 for its powerful engine, easy to use infotainment system, and the most comfortable ride you can get in a truck. After you choose a machine, several variants are available for Ram, from Bare-bones Tradesman to Limited-the-line and off-road-ready Rebel.
