New Cars for Less Than $25,000
Cars are an expensive commodity; for many Americans, an automobile can be the most expensive purchase of a lifetime. According to analysts at car research website KBB.com, the average transaction price for a new car is now almost $49,000 (November 2022 data). Despite that shocking number, plenty of options are available well below the average new-car price for folks on a budget. With stickers starting at around $15,000, quality new cars are available — complete with new-car warranties, a surprising number of standard features and the latest advanced safety technology. Here’s a look at new cars (and trucks) priced less than $25,000 — the least expensive 2023 models available in America. Note: Prices shown are for base-level trims and do not include destination charges or additional options.
