Ford Continues its $1,000 Cash Plus Zero Percent Auto Loans in August

Ford has rolled over its cash plus interest-free financing incentives through August. The 2010 Ford Edge, Explorer, F-150, Flex, Mustang and Super Duty have anywhere from $500 to $1,000 in bonus cash on top of the 0 percent auto loan rate incentive. The length of the car loan at 0 percent varies widely, so check Ford’s website to see which vehicle and loan length works best for you.

Most other 2010 Ford models also have 0 percent auto loan incentives this month without the bonus cash. Cash back incentives for those who have their own financing through their bank or credit union or pay with cash are available in August up to $6,000 on select 2010 vehicles. Most of Ford’s 2011 models have low auto loan rates or $500 to $2,500 in cash back incentives this month.

The 2010 Ford Ranger (pictured below) has a two-year, 25,000-mile premium maintenance plan in addition to 0 percent financing for up to six years in August. Ford is also offering 24-month leases on the 2010 Edge, Escape, Focus sedan, Fusion and Taurus. The 2011 Ford Mustang has a 36-month lease deal in August.

It includes oil changes, tire rotations, vehicle inspections, engine belts and hoses. Lincoln’s program also covers wear and tear items, including brake pads and wiper blades, which normally are not covered under a new car warranty.
