SUV Prices Are Dropping On Black Friday: Here’s Which Models Have The Best Deals

Over the past decade, uncontrollably high gas prices and a need (or desire) for more driving changed the trajectory of the SUV market among auto manufacturers forever. Those with SUVs quickly exchanged them for more efficient vehicles and drivers definitely were not purchasing any new vehicles for almost an entire decade.

In fact, the industry saw an 18% drop in sales from 2008. Manufacturing slowed, SUV prices shot up, and most Americans ran away from SUVs like the plague.

Yet SUVs aren’t as expensive as you think–especially if you shop on Black Friday.

Black Friday Signals Big SUV Sales

Major manufacturers learned that consumers simply don’t have the appetite for a heavy, inefficient SUV that could cost them a third of their income at the pump regardless of gas prices.

So, automakers crafted a new line of SUVs and crossovers, designed to blend the size and comfort of SUVs with the performance and efficiency of sedans. With this development and an increased demand in the more efficient vehicles, manufacturers started upping production once again, leaving many dealerships with an influx of SUVS to get off their lot this year.
