Ongoing supply shortages amid a lingering COVID-19 pandemic would seem to lower the impetus to park yourself at the mall for Black Friday once the pumpkin pie is through, but that won’t stop some. Doing it at the local auto mall makes even less sense: With 60% fewer new vehicles moving through Cars.com dealers in October versus the same time the year before, inventory’s too scarce at many dealers to throw any sale event to speak of.
On Oct. 27, J.D. Power pegged new-vehicle incentives at just 3.7% of MSRP, a record low. Still, we found a quartet of Black Friday deals bucking the trend. These are beyond our picks for November deals, linked above, which are also in effect through the post-Thanksgiving weekend. Between these two groups, you should have eight possibilities to choose from before December rolls around. If you’re late to the game, don’t fret; two of the deals below run through early January.
