Car shopping looks very different during the COVID-19 pandemic than it did just a couple of months ago. Dealerships have been forced to close their showrooms or offer by-appointment-only visits, while automakers are scrambling to keep sales up with online shopping support and generous financing incentives. Despite the unusual environment, it's not a bad time to be in the market for a new vehicle thanks to all the incentives and discounts available this month. These 5 automakers are offering generous discounts in the form of cash back, customer cash, or cash allowance deals on specific models. The discounts may vary by location and model trims, so make sure to reference your local dealership for details.

1. Chevrolet

Shoppers looking for a new full-size truck can find offers like $6,000 customer cash on the 2020 Silverado 1500 Crew Cab, and $4,500 customer cash on a Silverado 1500 Regular cab.
