No, the title is not a typo. Due to the increase in gas prices, the majority of new vehicle shoppers are considering a more fuel-efficient option leaving many full-size and midsize SUVs left behind on the lot.
Since the beginning of the year, numbers show that larger SUV sales are down 29% and midsize SUVs have declined 11%. With more and more consumers opting for better fuel mileage, auto dealers have a higher need to offer better deals on vehicles like the big SUVs including the Nissan Pathfinder or Nissan Armada, which are less in demand, in order to move them off lots.
There is a direct connection between what buyers are interested in and the number of incentives available, which, in this case, is resulting in more deals on SUVs. For those who need lots of cargo space or room for their large families, now is the perfect time to purchase an SUV.
