That’s a question that always depends on the remaining manufacturers programs and their deadlines by the individual manufacturers for a particular model. One should do their own research for a model before they get to the dealership and verify with the salesperson when the programs end. No manufacturers will give you their new programs or if they will renew them until the programs officially end so it’s hit and miss.

The most important thing is to make sure you are saving enough money because an outgoing model could be worth less on resale so make sure their is enough savings otherwise pay a little more for the newer model which could have additional equipment and safety components.
