It’s time for the annual “Summer Clearance Event” at all participating Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, and Ram Truck dealerships. From now through the end of August, qualified consumers may be eligible for special zero-percent financing for up to 72 months or Customer Cash up to $3,000 on many 2011 Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, and Ram Truck models.
“Consumers can take advantage of zero-percent financing and other special financing options on all of our models during this traditional summertime event,” said Reid Bigland, Chryslers recently appointed head of U.S. Sales. “Our customers look forward to this annual event where they can find some of the best deals of the model year on our minivans, cars, trucks and sport-utilities.”
Chrysler is offering zero-percent financing for up to 60 months to qualified buyers of 13 Chrysler Group models, including the 2011 Chrysler 200, Jeep Wrangler, Dodge Journey, and the Ram light- and heavy-duty pickup trucks. Buy an Avenger or a Dakota Club Cab and you may be eligible for 0 percent financing for an additional year – up to 72 months.
