The Best Year-End Car Deals in December

December 12, 2022

One year ago, the auto market was in the depths of the new car shortage. Semiconductor chips were in short supply, and dealer markups were at their worst. In December 2022, the best year-end car deals are the best we’ve seen since 2020, when the average price paid for a new car was $38,000. Today, that figure is north of $48,000. Still, end-of-year deals present an opportunity for car buyers to get a deal at a time when rising interest rates are putting affordability out of reach for many.
