The prices run from $15,000 for small economy cars to nearly $100,000 for some luxury vehicles.

The car gift programs are not just ways to sell inventory for the holidays. In most case, the manufacturers off deal on 2018 models they want to move out of showrooms and off their lots to make room for 2019 models. All of the deals end right after the near year starts.

At the least expensive end of the holiday car sales ladder, Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) is offering 2018 Ford Escape with a monthly lease price of $129 for 24 months. A buyer has to pay $3,299 when the lease papers are signed.  The deals are only for "Returning Ford Lessees", which severely limits the universe of people who can get the arrangement before January 2.
