Chrysler Offers New Incentives
Chrysler is offering rebates of up to $2,500 on select 2002 vehicles. The program, which follows similar incentives offered by Ford Motor Co. and General Motors Corp., runs through Feb. 28. Rebates of $2,500 or reduced financing are available on Dodge and Chrysler minivans, excluding the eC, eL, and eX models; the Jeep Grand Cherokee, excluding the Sport model; and the Dodge Durango. The reduced financing ranges from zero percent to 4.9 percent, said spokesman Marc Henretta for Chrysler, a division of DaimlerChrysler AG. Rebates of $1,500 are available on the rest of Chrysler Group’s lineup of cars, trucks, and sport/utility vehicles, except the Dodge Intrepid, with $2,000 rebates, and the Jeep Wrangler, with $500 rebates. Excluded from the national rebate portion of the program are the Chrysler PT Cruiser and the Jeep Liberty. In early January 2002, GM began offering a $2,002 rebate in place of zero percent financing. Ford also is offering an incentive program that offers customers up to $2,500 cash back or low financing rates on most 2002 Ford brand cars, trucks, and SUVs.
