Shopping might be the last thing on your mind after the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, but a recent study has showed that January is one of the best months of the year to buy a used vehicle, so despite the long nights and short days, maybe this month you will want to consider a trip down to your local dealership to see if you can’t start the year off with a hot deal to take the chill out of the winter.
There are several factors behind the cornucopia of January deals. Slower business, coupled with the need to make room for the newest models, means that many dealerships are willing to offer significantly cheaper prices on quality used vehicles. Furthermore, because car sales are also strong in November and December, and because those sales also often involve trade-ins of older vehicles, dealerships have a larger-than-usual stock of quality used vehicles to offer potential customers.
A 2017 car turns one year old as soon as the clock strikes midnight on the 31st of December, so January also typically finds dealers and salespeople in a hurry to move last years’ stock, which means you may be able to scoop up a car that is practically new at a heavily discounted price.
Here in Brampton, there are lots of options if you want to take advantage of these favourable prices to find a new vehicle. One of the best places to start is at the Colony Ford Brampton, which sells a range of new and used vehicles at competitive prices. You can get a great deal on a used Ford truck or shop the options for used Ford cars, or even consider stepping into one of their many SUVs.
Ford lease deals can ensure you get to drive home the Ford truck that suits your lifestyle, and the Brampton dealership has a team of finance and automotive experts standing buy to help arrange financing, so whatever budget you come in with, there will be options to help you set up a payment schedule that works for you. And with a wide array of Ford trucks to choose from, including an extensive collection of Ford 150s, you’ll probably find what you’re looking for soon enough.
But there are also reasons why Canadians, in particular, will find these January sales fortuitous. Canadian winters being what they are, January is a good time to purchase a vehicle that can handle the elements, and while most Ford pickups, when fitted with appropriate snow tires, can comfortably navigate the snowy, slushy roads that keep so many of us inside during the winter months, particular models, like the 2015 Ford F150, have proven to be excellent at dealing with winter conditions.
If you’re tired of feeling like you’re on a stunt driving run every time you go to pick up groceries, maybe its time you climbed into the cab of a used Ford truck.
