Cash for Clunkers: Eligible New Trucks and SUVs by Make and Model

Looking to trade in your clunker? Here's the list of vehicles whose combined gas mileage makes them eligible to buy using the Cash for Clunkers program. If you're buying something off this list, the new vehicle you buy must have a combined mpg rating that's at least 2 mpg higher than your trade-in's. If it's at least 2 mpg but less than 5 mpg higher, you'll get a $3,500 credit. If the new vehicle's combined fuel economy bests your clunker's by 5 mpg or more, the credit is $4,500. These lists are based on federal rules and are not official lists. We'll update if and when we get more information from the Department of Transportation. Find out more in our Cash for Clunkers guide.

This list includes vehicles that qualify under Cash for Clunkers' "Category 2" designation, but does not include "Category 3" work trucks. For more information on those vehicles, visit
