New Car Deals for October 2011: Crossover SUVs

Last Updated: Oct 30, 2011

Consumer and direct-to-dealer rebates continue plentiful on midsize crossover SUVs in October. Many prominent nameplates get sizeable discounts in an effort to attract attention in this highly competitive market segment. The top deal is on the midsize Mitsubishi Endeavor, which is being discontinued after model-year 2011 following years of consumer indifference. The 2011 Acura ZDX is the oddest bird here; most of its crossover utility is negated by sleek coupe-like styling that makes for a cramped rear seat and small cargo hold. The 2012 Ford Flex and Edge and the 2012 Chevrolet Traverse and BMC Acadia are the top all-around crossover-SUV choices this October.
