Ford Offers Employee Pricing Plus 0% on Fuel-Efficient ModelsBy Michelle Krebs November 18, 2008
Ford announced a new round of incentives Tuesday that it is calling Employee Pricing Plus Tuesday because it starts with employee pricing and adds cash rebates or, in the case of Ford's most fuel-efficient models, zero-interest financing.
Beginning Wednesday and running through January 5, Ford is offering employee pricing to buyers of most 2008 and 2009 Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles plus cash rebates up to $6,000.
Customers who select one of the nine most fuel-efficient models Ford, Lincoln or Mercury can opt for zero-percent financing for 36 months on top of employee pricing.
Further, Ford Credit will provide a $500 bonus on the purchase of most Ford, Lincoln and Mercury models.
Zero percent financing on top of employee pricing is available on the Ford, Focus, Fusion, Escape and Flex; the Mercury Milan and Mariner; and the Lincoln MKZ and MKS.
"Ford is bullish on fuel economy," Ken Czubay, Ford's vice president of sales and marketing, said in a statement.
The all-new 2009 Ford F-150 is not offered with employee pricing but is available with zero percent financing. Also excluded from the employee pricing are 2008 and 2009 Ford Escape and Mercury Mariner Hybrids, 2008 and 2009 Ford Shelby GT500, Ford F-Series chassis cabs models and Ford E-Series cutaways models.
