To ensure that momentum continues, research indicates that a number of manufacturers are kicking off the second half by creating some very attractive buying opportunities on a wide range of vehicles.

"Holiday weekends like the Fourth of July provide a great opportunity for new-car shoppers to snag a hot deal, especially as dealers begin to clean house in preparation for accepting new 2014 model-year inventory," said Alec Gutierrez, senior market analyst for Kelley Blue Book's "This weekend, new-car shoppers can find many financing, cash back and lease deals on different mainstream favorites and fun-for-summer models as well as luxury cars."

Among the deals currently being offered is one for the 2013 Ford Mustang with zero-percent financing for 60 months and a monthly payment of $361. See the others via the link above.
