Looking for a deal on a car in the midst of the pandemic?

There are some to be had, but don’t expect everything to be on sale just because the economy is sputtering.

Automakers dialed back discounts in June after ramping them up in May, and interest rates have ticked upward after reaching historic lows.

But deals are still better than this time last year. Here are answers to six key questions about new- and used-car shopping.

Clearing out last year’s models?

Are dealers trying to sell off 2020 models before the 2021 cars and trucks arrive? Not yet. About two months of downtime at most manufacturing plants due to the pandemic means that dealers don’t have a surplus of vehicles.

“While auto sales are down and will continue under pressure through the year, there was also a significant loss of production from March through May,” IHS Markit automotive analyst Stephanie Brinley said in an email.

In fact, automakers are delaying dozens of new models while they sell last year’s.

Are prices dropping?

Not so much. The average new vehicle sold for $36,332 in June, which was up 3.2% from a year earlier, according tocar-research site TrueCar. That increase is attributable to a shifting mix of sales from cheaper passenger cars to more expensive SUVs.

Overall prices were also about the same in June as they were in May.

Are automakers increasing discounts?

Sometimes, automakers sell vehicles at a high sticker price but provide discounts, often referred to as incentives, to make the effective price much lower.
