2010 Ford Flex -- 0% APR financing for up to 60 months, or $3,000 cash back
Ford has fought off rumors that it will cancel the relatively young Flex crossover all summer. It may be true -- the Edge and Explorer overlap its role so much, it's difficult to imagine there truly is demand for three Ford crossovers -- but it's a shame. The Flex is stylish, with its MINI-big-brother look. It's exceptionally comfortable, with minivan-like space and optional indulgences like a built-in second-row refrigerator. And, with the available EcoBoost twin-turbo V-6, it can be a lot more fun to drive than your average family-hauling seven-seater. Three thousand dollars back? Three thousand more reasons to be interested.

2010 GMC Sierra -- 0% APR financing for 60 months PLUS no charge satellite radio
It's Truck Month for GM. It seems like it's always Truck Month, but still, this one is worth noticing. The Chevy Silverado's executive-class twin brother, the Sierra, is easy to drive. No full-size truck actually offers car-like handling, but sometimes the Sierra does a very reasonable job of delivering car-like comfort. It also works hard, out-towing many similarly-sized trucks. And, at its highest trim levels, its interior is near-luxury quality. Five years without interest is no small matter on this truck. The free satellite radio is just a garnish.

2010 Cadillac CTS-V -- 0% APR financing for 72 months
A face-off to find America's best car would surely count the CTS-V as a finalist. It might well end up on the highest podium. The first American sport sedan to hold its own with the Germans, the CTS-V beats BMW's legendary M3 in some head-on comparisons. Its interior is sharply styled and stunningly well-executed -- Alcantara steering wheel anyone? Its magneto-rheologically-damped suspension holds flat in tight corners, and when the boost gauge on the dash starts to move--telling you the superchargers are kicking in and pushing the V-8's output north of 550 horsepower--you'll wonder if you can time-travel in this sedan. Somehow, GM has unsold CTS-Vs left on dealer lots. The offer is good on the sedan and coupe versions, but don't forget there's also a wagon version in the works.
