Buyer beware: car and tractor-trailer deals are often not that easy to find.
That’s because a large number of the largest car manufacturers have been acquired by other companies, including Fiat Chrysler, Toyota, General Motors and Ford.
And if you want to get a new truck, you’re out of luck.
But for some buyers, it’s possible to find bargains.
This article gives you a quick rundown of what you can expect to pay in the market, and some tips for making the most of the deal.
Read moreThe biggest bargain: Fiat Chrysler 300T and 300LTBuying a new Chrysler 300t with a 4.7L four-cylinder engine makes the most sense for many buyers, but it’s not necessarily a good deal.
The new engine costs between $40,000 and $50,000, according to Edmunds.
A four-wheel-drive version costs $70,000.
You’ll want to pick a manual transmission.
Buying the 300LT is not as straightforward, as the four-speed manual makes more sense for some drivers, as it allows for a smoother ride and less acceleration.
The base price of the 300 is $61,500, while the optional manual option is $55,000 or $60,000 depending on the trim level.
The 300LT has a 2.7-liter four-stroke engine, with a 6.2-liter turbocharged V6 and 295 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque.
It will come standard with the automatic transmission.
The $61.4 million base price, plus $1,000 of destination, would be $89,999, while adding $10,000 for the manual transmission would come to $126,999.
The manual transmission costs $11,500 and is available for the base model or for the optional transmission.
The next biggest deal: Ford F-150, F-350, F150 RaptorBuying your own F-250 pickup is a great way to save on fuel, maintenance and insurance, but the F-500, F500 Raptor, is the next best thing.
The F-450 Raptor is a four-door pickup with a four, 8.5-liter V6 engine and 265 horsepower and 295 pound-foot-of-torque.
The price is about $51,000 per year.
The engine comes standard with a six-speed automatic transmission and the F350 Raptor comes with a five-speed, six-cylure V6.
The Raptor has a 6-speed transmission, and the standard F350 is $56,999 or $64,999 depending on trim level and how much it has been sold.
The standard F-400 Raptor gets a five speed automatic and is a $58,999 option, while a F-700 Raptor with a V6 costs $71,999 and the V6 F-800 Raptor $85,999 in all trim levels.
The automatic F-1500 Raptor starts at $62,999 with a choice of four or eight-speed.
The option is optional for the F500, but that costs $42,999 for the Raptor.
The cost is $59,999 after the $6,000 in dealer fees.
The optional Raptor F-15 Raptor can be had for $80,000 with a two-speed six-speeder transmission and a five cylinder V6, but you’ll need to get an additional $10K for the extra gearbox.
The V6 option is a two speed, four-wheeled version.
The regular F-300 Raptor ($60,995) is a little more expensive than the Raptors, but is a bit more powerful than the regular F250 Raptor (which starts at about $64.4K) and the Rapture, but not by much.
The worst deal: Toyota Camry, Lexus RX-7, Fisker KarmaBuying this midsize SUV is usually a good idea, but there are some drawbacks.
The Lexus NX 300S is the best-selling midsize truck on the road, with more than 4 million sold since it debuted in 2010.
The LX 300S has a 4,900-pound gross vehicle weight rating and a top speed of more than 160 mph.
The CVT makes it easier to drive, and if you’re not a big driver, the Lexus LX 300 will get you from A to B in about seven seconds, according, according Edmunds, with the CVT available in the Lexuans Sport trim.
The Toyota CVT has an automatic transmission, but owners must buy the CVS transmission separately, according.
The best deal: Subaru Outback, Subaru Outlander, ForesterBuying an all-wheel drive Subaru Outlaw with a manual four-row drive will set you back between $50 and $60K.
But the manual four is the more comfortable option,
