Worst Deals on New Cars Right Now

In some cases, you might think it’s worth the extra money for your dream vehicle, even if it means greater depreciation over time. For other vehicles, it may be better to seek a suitable, more plentiful alternative. 

We’re presenting the 10 cars, SUVs, and trucks that are selling the most over the sticker price based on data from TrueCar, a CR partner, starting with the highest and using specific trims as examples. Ford dominates the list this month, with Kia and Toyota also represented. (We omitted some high-priced models, such as the Cadillac Escalade, Ford F-250, GMC Hummer EV, and Toyota Supra.) Every model here is selling for 6 percent or more over MSRP.

CR members will see ratings highlights and detailed pricing on specific trims and configurations. Keep in mind that this list doesn’t factor in Consumer Reports’ recommendations, nor do we endorse paying such premiums for a new car. 

Of course, local pricing may differ. You can see the transaction prices for these and every other mainstream vehicle from the model pages by clicking through the ratings boxes below or searching via our interactive New Cars A-Z ratings.
