Black Friday is a special holiday known for its miraculous ability to awaken Americans from their turkey induced comas and bring them out in droves to packed malls and Best Buys across the nation. Of course, there's a chance you might score a good price on that TV, but the deals will continue throughout the holiday season and it's usually best to just avoid the mayhem. One shopping trip we can justify as a good investment of time on Black Friday, is a trip to the car dealership.

Skip the department store electronics department and get the latest tech in a new truck instead. 

In some cases, the Black Friday car deals you find this year can be attributed to automakers and dealers trying to clear inventory and make room for new 2019 models. Alternatively, some 2019 vehicles get the discounts and incentives to drum up excitement and get car shoppers in on the holiday hype. Depending on the vehicle you're looking for, Black Friday deals can add up to substantial savings for you and yours. We looked at data compiled by Cars.com from 6 major US metros to bring you the top Black Friday discounts and incentives for SUVs, pickup trucks and sedans. Trust us, these are the deals worth battling traffic for.

The Chevy Equinox got a redesign for 2018 and carries over the new features into the 2019 model.

A capable engine, along with precise steering and handling make the Equinox a great choice for car shoppers. The 2019 Chevy Equinox's starting MSRP is $23,800.

2019 Ram 1500

We tested out the 2019 Ram 1500 and found it excellent to drive. This is thanks to an updated suspension resulting in a smooth ride, an impressive HEMI V8 and a quick 0-60 of just over 6 seconds. On top of the capable engine, one of our favorite features was the versatile interior storage space offering a folding center armrest and cubbies that allow for a middle seat in the front row. The optional 12-inch touchscreen on the higher trims will give you your Black Friday electronics fix. The 2019 Ram 1500's starting MSRP is $31,795.

2018 Chevrolet Malibu

2018 Chevy Malibu

The 2018 Chevy Malibu is a stylish and spacious sedan that drives smoothly and handles well. We drove the 2017 model which is nearly identical to the 2018 Malibu. The Chevy Malibu has a potent 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine which offers great acceleration and might just make you believe you're driving a V6. Comfort is an added perk of the 2018 Malibu with supportive and cushioned front seats that make even long drives enjoyable. The 2018 Chevy Malibu's starting MSRP is $22,090.

2018 Ford Fusion

The mid-size Ford Fusion is one of the most attractive family sedans on the market. Although Ford has not changed the Fusion's body shape in a few years, they recently refreshed the front fascia, grille and headlights on the higher trims. Despite a weaker base engine that only offers up 175 hp, the 2018 Fusion makes a good everyday vehicle (especially if you upgrade to the higher level trims). Space is the name of the Ford Fusion's game since it offers more interior room and trunk space than many competitors. The 2018 Ford Fusion's starting MSRP is $22,215. 

Black Friday Deals:

  • $1,750 to $5,000 off, depending on trim level and region
  • $3,000 to $4,500 off on Fusion Hybrid and Fusion Energi models
  • 2.9% financing for 84 months available in some regions for qualified applicants
