See which states had the highest percentage of car shoppers who committed to a monthly payment of $1,000 or more to finance their purchase of a new vehicle in Q2 (April 1 - June 30, 2023) according to data from Edmunds, the car shopping resource.

Percent of state residents paying >$1k/month in Q2
  • More than 1 in 4 car shoppers in Texas and Wyoming committed to a monthly payment over $1K/month, which experts say is due to the high volume of large truck purchases in both states.
  • Edmunds experts advise that consumers calculate the total amount they are planning to finance in their next purchase by using the Edmunds Auto Loan Calculator, which factors in sales price, tax rates, title and registration, trade-in values, financing terms and more.
